Blogger’s Challenge 54 – Color Blocking

Sorry I’m late with last week’s challenge, which was color blocking.  I’d never done this before, so tried to find some samples on the internet, and one source said that the "blocking" can be left to interpretation, so this is mine… Supplies: Stamps:  Keeper (Artistic Outpost) Paper:  Core’dinations, Daisy D, Whisper White, Soft Sky Ink:  […]

Aged Faux Batik Paper Quilt

Blogger’s Challenge 24 – Watercoloring

This week’s challenge was watercoloring.  Since I’m still away from home, I have to work with what I  have with me or can rut out of my daughter’s stash.  I couldn’t find an aquapainter or paintbrush, but did find her Stampin’ Pastels, so improvised on my watercoloring technique by using Stampin’ Pastels® and a blender […]

2007 Convention Swap

  One of the highlights of attending the annual Stampin’ Up!® Convention is swapping cards with other demos.  I made 300 (with the help of Nancy’s eldest daughter, Danielle) cards to take to the convention again this year.  One of my “rules” of card making is that I have to use something different each time […]
