Guest Artist!

So, you get some ramblings before the card.

I got a package in the mail yesterday … it was the 120 Prismacolor pencil set, some Gamsol and some paper stumps (all bought from Dick Blick). I was so excited.

A few months ago Kathi (over at Kathi’s Corner posted that she had purchased all these products. Ever since then I’ve been contemplating purchasing them. The Gamsol is used to help blend the colors. I played a little last night with them, but think I need a lot more practice. I’ve never been that great at coloring in stamps, so I’m hoping that with practice I can get the look that I’m looking for. I’ll post some of my progress this weekend!

On to my Guest Artist! One of the reasons I wanted to get the new pencil set was because of the Bella stamps, and some of these stamps … Magnolia’s! They are all the rage on the European blogs, and I’m starting to see them crop up over here in the US/Canada as well. Well, my Mom has fallen in love with them and has now ordered twice from them. The second time (just a couple of weeks ago) I had her throw in a few for me. She got them today, so I should be getting mine in a few days. I’m looking forward to playing with them!!!

Anyway, she’s had some for awhile, and her card that I’m posting was made with one of the Erwin’s (sorry I don’t know which one). She’s been making some very cute cards with them!!! Enjoy!

It’s Guest Artist time!!

This card was made by a good friend of mine, Judy. Here’s what she says about this card:

“I had a whole different idea when I started but couldn’t find those gold swirl clips anywhere. So I tried the ornament hooks. I think it turned out nice. I haven’t a clue as to the paper, it was a sheet of ornaments and I cut them out. Then I backed it and punched a hole so I could hook the ornament. Added glitter to the ornament top and a ‘swirl’ to ‘hang’ from.”

I really love how this turned out Judy! Thanks for sharing!!! :)

Guest Artist! My friend Jill R!

This is a card that my friend Jill made. It’s a birthday card for her son who is currently serving in Iraq. I can’t say for sure what supplies she used, besides of course the cuttlebug!! Great card Jill, and thanks for letting me share it!

Hi again.

I’d like to share a card made by my Mom. She made this card for my sister-n-laws Birthday. It turned out really cute.

She uses mostly CTMH products as well. Thanks for sharing Mom! :)
