Guest Designer Debbie A. Copics Coloring!

WOW this coloring makes me want to run in right now and get my copics out! Debbie is so very talented and has mastered copics coloring. She is a very dear friend and shares her love for stamping with all of us! The bright colors just seem to give me an energy boost! Want to be a guest designer? Just send me your design and description in an email and I will try to add you to my blog.  Happy stamping!     YOUR FUTURE IS ONLY as bright as your FAITH! Be Blessed!

Butterfly Napkin Card

This beauty was designed by Lorna T. She first stamped the flourishes background and then fused the napkin to her card stock and cut it out to add it to her card. The colors are just lovely and she did a wonderful job! We have so much fun together and we get-together every chance we get to enjoy our friendship and stamping.

Stamp Friends Flock Together!

This is a design by my new stamp friend Debbie R.  She has hosted us for two play days in her lovely home and we have had such a wonderful time, and been very blessed by the good fun and fellowship! I shared the paper napkin technique and this is what Debbie made. I so love the birds and the extras she added make it just the perfect finish for this card. Thanks Debbie for your kindness and creativity! ( See former post on napkin technique)

Paper Napkin Background! Make your own!

I love trying new techniques and this background with the butterfly was made from a paper napkin. Most napkins have three layers and you start in one corner and separate the layers down to the last pretty print. On an ironing board place a large protective piece of scrap paper so that you do not mess up your board.  Cut a piece of plastic wrap to cover entire size of card stock. ( it is ok if it hangs over, just do not let it melt onto your iron)  Center the napkin layer over the card stock, on top of the plastic wrap. Then place a scrap card stock over your project.( This protects your iron) Next press with a medium temperature iron for about 45 seconds. Pull protection paper away.  The plastic wrap becomes the bonding agent and bonds the napkin to your card stock . Cut away the section you do not like, and add it to your next card as your homemade background paper! On my design above the red butterfly and the purple design at the top is the bonded napkin. The rest are add ons!  This technique is on you tube for a video sample look there! Please email me your sample! Blessings My stamp friends!

Happy Summer Birthday

This card is great for the simple yet elegant summer birthday! With a combination of stamped and punched flowers in a variety of colors, and accent color background frame it just works wonderfully! Have fun!

Blessed everyday!
