God's Gift of Nature (Shannon)

When I was in Jackson, a demonstrator named Vita Padalino showed us how to do this technique which she calls "God's Gift of Nature." I absolutely love it and had been looking for cards that use this stamp set.
Zoey and I made these cards together--so even though it looks difficult, here's an easy step-by-step:

1) Punch out the moon w/a circle punch and a post-it (we used 1-3/8"---I think).
2) Place moon on Whisper White and then sponge around it w/different shades of blue, starting w/the lightest first. Remove moon mask.
3) Stamp silhouette image in StazOn or Basic Black.
4) Add white highlights w/white gel pen.
Then you just assemble the card and that's it! If you make one of these, make sure to leave a comment w/a link!!

Big Shot projects (Shannon)

I LOVE THE BIG SHOT!!! Here are a few cards I've made using one of the flower dies...

Bashful Blue, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip & Pacific Point. Dots are Hot stamp set. And of course a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds!
For this one, I used the Coluzzle to cut out the negative image of the die-cut flower.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month (LeAnn)

Awhile back in Midway, Shiloh taught me how to make this awesome box using Shannon's Big Shot and Top Note Die Cut. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I did mine in all pink. I had these pink note cards that fit perfectly in the box. I made a set of 4 thank you cards to go with it. I LOVE how it turned out!

Spooky Spider (Shannon)

I made a little halloween decoration w/Stamin' Up!s new-ish product line--Decor Elements. I am really happy w/the way it turned out and can't wait to try another...
I got the tile at Lowe's for just a couple bucks, cleaned it, put the image on the tile, sprayed it w/a glossy coat, then sprinkled a little glitter over the gloss before it dried. The 2nd picture is an attempt at a close-up of the glitter....

Happy Halloween!!

Simply Scrappin' Event! (Shannon)

Last week all the Queens, and several others, attended my Simply Scrappin' card event....and it was such a blast! I didn't get any cards from the I Wish kit finished before the event, so I've done some now and am going to post them for those who chose the same kit. :)

And I'm also calling all my Queens---let's see some of what you made!! :)

All of these have a bit of bling on some of the pics you can't really tell though.

This holly berry one is one of my faves! :)
