I have a new card to share today.  I held off on posting it until I was sure it made it's way to my card swap partner!!  This cute Tilda is holding a key that I used glossy accents on.  It is hard to see it in the picture, but it looks really glossy!

The word "Believe" is embossed with Martha Stewart Lime Green embossing powder.  I have only starting embossing.  How do you keep the powder from sticking to the rest of the card???  I did emboss it before I but the paper on the card, but there were a few flakes of powder that would not come off...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  I just love this paper.  Thanks for stopping by!!  Love your comments.  T-

hAnglar & stAnglar Stamp!!!

Well I just had to have these new stamps!!!  I love gardening and love flowers...can't tell from the papers on most of my cards. 

Here is a card I did for my mom's birthday.  She is always there for my sisters and I...what a strong lady. 

I struggled a little with the masking and embossing, this is my first time, I used the Martha Stewart Embossing kit which I bought 1/2 price at Michael's.  I guess I will be watching more videos on masking, she is barely sitting on the edge of the pot. 

Colored with Copics, inked the sides of all pages with Distressed Inks and used BoBunny paper.

Here is the inside...

Thanks for stopping by...wishing you a crafty day!!
Hugs, Teresa

Graduation Card and Mini Suitcase

                                                                    Happy Tuesday!!  This is a card I made for my friend's daughter that just graduated High School in Arizona.  I borrowed the template for the mini suitcase from Suzanne Dean (Thanks Suzanne your creations are amazing!! I am also taking her beginners copic class...I still need lots of  practice, but love these colors!) 

Inside the mini suitcase is a Target gift card. It fits just perfectly. 
Here is a close-up of the mini suitcase.  I used scor-tape to put the suitcase together so I know it will stay together!!  (Thanks Diane)
The outside of the card is embellished with flowers and butterflies from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The paper is stuff I have in my stash.  Most likely K & Company paper, but I don't know for sure.
Here is the inside.  Hope you enjoy.  I loved making this gift.  I will be making more of these mini suitcases....I just love them.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs, Teresa

Birthday Card - My First Requested Card

I was so honor to have a co-worker ask me to make a birthday card for her sister. She said that her sister loves fairytales...princesses...girly type of cards. Here is the card I came up with:

I just love this K and Company paper. Since I am limited in my copic selection, this paper goes great!! I used SCAL with my cricut to cut the ovals, ribbon from Michael's $1 bin, my martha stewart lacey border punch and beautiful Wild Orchids Flowers. I also used lots of martha stewart cotton candy glitter for her undershirt. I love bling!! Thanks for stopping by!!
