Oh So Eclectic Embossing Paste

HI Friends,

I am a big fan of Embossing Paste.

 This card, inspired by Stamping With Joy, uses the White Paste with the the Patterned Party Decorative mask.

It is EASY to use. It dries very quickly and the texture it adds is lovely. The Oh So Eclectic Bundle is fun to use and the colors are so fresh and pretty.

I also added a Faceted Jewel to the center of one flower…just another eye appealing dimension!

What do YOU think?

Hi Friends,

Embossing paste is FUN and easy to use!

It creates another dimension and interest to what ever project you are making!

Add a hint of color to it and you have yet another layer of dimension!

This card was copied from one done by Demonstrator, Tami Hewlett.

I love her color combos and the added Embossing Paste gives it a bit of elegance.

Hi Friends,

Pleats For My Friend

Hi Friends,


My sweet  friend Kathy Durgan, and fellow Demonstrator is VERY CREATIVE!

This is a copied/tweaked version of one she sent me.

I am so grateful to Kathy for her sharing AND TALENT!

It’s a fun card to make – kinda like sewing but only with paper!

You can purchase any of the supplies to create this exact card and I’ll be happy to send you the free PDF with all instructions!

 It's not as hard as you might think!

Simply a matter of folding your Designer Series Paper into folds –and there you have it!

I embossed the Whisper White card stock, then added the ribbon with a bit of Tear& tape.

Cut out the ovals with framelits,  added some bling ( of COURSE!) and used Dimensionals to adhere that layer.

Done! and VERY PRETTY!!!!!

Painted Autumn Fancy Fold Pumpkins

Hi Friends,

This card was inspired by an amazing Demonstrator, Linda Bauwin.

It's a creative yet fun and easy fold which could be used for just about any occasion.

See those pumpkins? Don't they look like they could just pop off the page?

Well, they were cut out from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

THEN you turn them wrong side up and put them on your Pierce Pad. Using the Score Tool, you simply make small circles on the back of the pumpkins. Keep making circles until the whole pumpkin is 'bubbled' up.

Turn them over and see the 3-d effect?? TOO DARN CUTE I say!

Don't forget to take a look at he promotion for National card Making day. The flyer says it all and you can take advantage of some GREAT bargains!

My challenge to each of you is to send a card to someone you know but perhaps is not a close friend.

Maybe to your Hairdresser or Teller at your bank. Just pick a person whom you perhaps would never send a card to, and SEND ONE TO THEM!

I guarantee that the recipient of your beautiful card will be not only surprised at the mail box, but will be touched by YOUR random act of KINDNESS!

Go ahead–do it! You never know the impact it will have but I can assure you it will be wonderful!
