This is another card we made at the Stamp-Camp last week. It is a close second to my favorite card pictured below. I really love Crystal's ideas for the classes she teaches. Our next class isn't until the end of September, but I can hardly wait.

This one has beautiful colors in it and is a close second in my favorite catagory. I tried this technique at a Shop-Hop make & take a couple of years ago and bought some of the inks after that event. I haven't used them yet, and needed a refresher on how to get this beautiful effect. The class was just what I needed; plus we learned several more tips from Karen during the class.
I took a class with my good friend Katy last night, and I love the technique we learned. We used alcohol inks and krylon markers to create three beautiful cards. The class was at Karen's Creative Stamping in Burton, and we had a lot of fun. This is my favorite card from the class.

I picture my little grandson, Nicholas in this shirt! I love the colors and the little brown buttons at the top. Straight edges and sleeves make this one for the little boys! I think this pattern is very versatile, in that it could be used for shirts for any age, with only a few minor changes.
I made this pattern after seeing a tee shirt card in a magazine. I just love it! I have many patterned papers that will work well with this. The sleeves and bottom are cut with scalloped scissors, which is why I call it a girl's tee shirt.

I love this card! I saw a purse shaped card at my friend Crystal's house and wanted to make one! I made a pattern for the card and this is what came to be! The smaller photo shows what is inside the card. I used a marbled, shiny paper that I found at Capture-a-Memory in Flint. The flower inside is colored in with Glaze markers. The purse handle is Offray ribbon. I picture making many more of these cards using some of the double-sided cardstock I have in my stash. (This card fits in a regular card envelope, too!) Now, I'm off to my studio - many other patterns are lurking in my brain!
This one was very hard for me to do! My daughter Monique has moved to Tacoma, WA to be closer to her twin sister, Dawn. Monique has a new job and is starting a new life there. I already miss her so much. From here in Michigan, it seems like Washington is half-way across the world! We wish her the best and send our love.

Today I went to a QuicKutz class and this is the card I made. I love it! The recipe is great, and I will use it again. My good buddies Sue, Pat and Katy also attended the class and we had a great time. Later this week I am taking an Alcohol Ink class with Pat, and we will make three cards. If all goes well, I will post them here.
