Pieced Paper

I've been playing with piecing papers together rather than layer on layer. I kind of like the look if it, IRL.

It's been forever and a day since I've jumped on a DCM challenge. This week's challenge is Love & Friendship and this was my attempt:

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love you...even though you are a bonehead sometimes!


I used to love the game "Acrophobia" online and it went away a few years ago :( but I won a little contest with them.
If making ACROs is fun for you, you should go to Talk to the Ham blog. She own Hambo Stamps which are too funny! My faves are the fractured funnies!
I'm not affiliated, just offering my opinion. ;)

Change is good?

I grew tired of my old banner and style of the blog and thought, well, change is good...sometimes. So I set out to find and alter a template to suit me and design a new banner. I settled on this one. It originally had guitars on it, but I removed them and added my own designs. I lost all my links and music, but I'll get them back slowly as I get to blog hopping.
So...the's good, bad, or what change? - you haven't blogged in so long, I don't even know how I ended up here!

Feeling like a newbie stamper

After not stamping for months, I feel like a newbie stamper all over again. Thanks to my Inkstainers friends, who never let me forget I'm a stamper!

I've learned that people recycle/tear apart their cards, for the bits or embellishments, when they are done enjoying their received cards so....
The tag has a magnet on the back and there is a magnet of the same shape on the card. To open it, you just pop off the magnet. Then when you are done looking at the card, you have a magnet you can steal off it. lol

faux silk?

I'm not sure this technique looks like faux silk, but I adore it anyway. Basically, you stamp, cover image with glue and press crumpled tissue paper on it. I'm not a fan of glue as it leaves the c/s a bit wonky, but I liked this one anyway. (and don't say, "just iron it" 'cause I don't iron. lol)

Christmas Past

The holidays were hard and I didn't think I'd make even one card. I did though, for Dh's family. I only scanned one, but they were the same techique.
This is glossy resist with shiny, silver mirror card behind, but I sanded it for a different effect.
