GC52 Kraft

This is my last card as a guest artist on the Gingersnap Creations blog.  The challenge was to use kraft cardstock so I made this nature themed card.  The mushroom stamp is by Onyx Xpressions and the word "nature" is part of a large scrapbooking stamp about the great outdoors.  The dot background is a Papertrey Ink stamp.

GC50 Found Objects

Here is the card I created for Gingersnap Creations Found Objects challenge.  I found these bottle caps while walking my dog in the park.  First I flattened the bottle caps in my wizard.  Then  I punched out Altered Pages images, placed them in the flattened bottlecaps and then filled them with Glossy Accents.

Exciting news-GC guest artist for April

Gingersnap Creations invited me to be a guest designer for the month of April.  This means I will be playing along with their four monthly challenges.  The first has been posted and the theme is The Good Earth.  I have to admit I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with this theme, but decided to make a scenic card.  The stamp with the deer and animals is a favorite stamp of mine and I added other images to create the scene.

GC 46 Spicy Supply-Frosting

As soon as I saw this challenge at Gingersnap Creations, I knew exactly what I wanted to use--my embossing icing from The Stencil Collection.  I like to collect stencils as well as stamps and this heron stencil makes a very pretty Asian themed card.  I used the TJ technique, Faux Velvet on the background.
