Sun ripened

I have a stash of coloured/mounted images that just never seemed to make there way into anything so I decided to start using them.

I am going to start trying to be a little more specific with my recipe, I just don't always seem to recall what I have used.

All supplies used are SU, unless noted.

Sun ripened stamp set, not quite navy for base and mat. The green paper is from a level one print pack. i watercoloured the images with pumpkin pie, close to cocoa for branch, and old olive, garden green for leaves. To top it off I used some ww ribbon, and a piece from the hodge podge kit.

Daughter's quilt

Total sidebar here, I quilt also, this is the only other "crafty" picture I have on my computer. It's called a sampler quilt and it has 12 different blocks on it. Each block is a different pattern, I know that one is called a nine patch. You can't even see all the blocks, anyways sorry to disappoint if you were coming to look at some fantabulous paper crafting.

I made this quilt for my daughter, I also made a sampler quilt for my son. I haven't done it in along time, now that winter is coming I will have to finish the pirate quilt I am making for my husband, it was his christmas gift last year.

Blue is my fav

One of the cards I am making for my stamp a stack, I really like the simplicity of it.

All supplies SU unless noted.

Whisper white and brilliant blue, lovely as a tree stamp set, and Many merry messages stamp set.

I stamped the tree in bb, then took a zig zag glue pen and dabbed it on the tree, then sprinkled dazzling diamonds over it, same thing with the noel. Corner punch, and too little silver spots of bling.

Have I mentioned that Halloween is my favourite time of year? I just can't seem to make enough crafts for it.
I got the shadow box from IKEA, the background paper is SU something or other (current Halloween paper), I think the stamp is all night media, don't quote me on that. The spider is from SU new decor elemnts line. I sponged some black ink around the house.

Bella Rose

I have a group of friends and we get together once a month for a "splurge". This is one of the projects we will be making if I can borrow some paper from my upline. I think it's a great card to showcase paper, sometimes you just fall in love with a certain DSP.
All supplies SU, unless noted
Bkgrnd : Red riding hood (or whatever the name), DSP Bella Rose, matted on kiwi kiss, whisper white ribbon, Non SU red ribbon, the stamp set is (I think, something about best is yet to come. maybe I'm out of mind-LOL) a level 1.

Lovely as a tree

I am trying to show how versatile the lovely as atree stamp set is. Here is a masculine card.

All supplies SU

Handsome hunter (base), tree matted on brocade blue, DSP is from the kit Home again, mat pack on bottom (mat packs rock, everyone should have one), clear buttons and some hemp twine. Voila. Oh yeah, I used choc chip and handsome hunter to colour the tree.

Hello my pretties, I have been unable to post as my Internet has been done for 3 days!! I've also been busy with ceramics, work, crafting. You know how it goes. My son also had his first swimming lesson today, things went well. On to the cards.
All supplies SU unless noted.
Lovely lilac, tempting turquoise for the bases
Baroque motifs stamp set used, stamped the whirly gigs in tempting turquoise, and lovely lilac for flowers.
Whisper white ribbon, and tempting turquoise.
Distressed the edges with the cutter kit, and sponged lovely lilac on them.
I did something I've never done before but seen done. It's called the spotlight technique. I really like it. Maybe I will do a little mini tutorial, please don't hold me to that though.

Harley Davidson

I am participating in a "live to ride, ride to live" swap on SCS. I was going to use my Born to ride set, then I stumbled across my harley set.

Obviously not onlySU supplies. I bought some Harley paper at my LSS, cut and matted on only orange, stamped harley image in OO, distressed sides with SU cutter kit, sponged black around the outsides and 2 black eyelets. The white circles are from the white uni pen thingy, and I traced the circles using SU mat pack.
