3x3 card using Hooligans and Party Animal......

Soooo, did any of you get to watch the marathon of classes this weekend over at Tresa Black's ustream??  I have to admit that as excited as I was about watching it all day......I was SWAMPED this weekend.  Between spending time with the kids and hubby on Saturday to waking up at 6am on Sunday to finish getting ready for my Idea Book Release Party, I had NO time to get on the computer.  But I did see a few of the projects and I was really bummed that I did not see them created live!  Tresa will be holding another live project tomorrow night......have set my alarm so I can remember to sign on and watch!

ANY HOO......I wanted to share these little cards that I created today.  As I mentioned I had my Idea Book   Release Party on Sunday.  Well, I had several make-n-takes for my guests to make and ended up with extras.  SO, I decided to redo the treat pouch and just make 3x3 cards from the left over papers.

These turned out pretty cute, but simple.  I just cannot get enough of the prisma glitter on these little monsters!  If you have a chance to look at the Hooligans Workshop on the Go kit, check out how CTMH created the little monsters that come in the kit.  After stamping/coloring the monsters in, you take a glue pen to which ever parts of the monster you want to cover in prisma glitter.....then glitter away!  CUTE CUTE

OH and I almost forgot....I used Liquid Glass to fill in his eyeballs!  LOVE IT!!!

These papers and this stamp set will be available for sale starting tomorrow!!!  Stop by my website for a look at the online Autumn/Winter Idea Book!  You WON'T be disappointed in all the brand new products!!  Just click on the photo of the Autumn/Winter Idea Book on my side banner......

Supplies Used:
Paper: Hooligans, Black CS, White Daisy CS
Stamp set: Party Animal
Inks: Black Stamp Pad, Sunset Marker, Gypsy Marker, Lagoon Marker and Pear Marker
Embellishments: Prisma Glitter, Liquid Glass and Lagoon Medley, Sunset Medley and Pear Medley

Thanks SO much for checking back to see my latest posts!

Hope this has inspired you to get out your sparkly glitter and make a mess!  LOL

Happy scrapping and stamping!

Sneak Peek Card.....

This was a card that I created for my Extravaganza booth at convention.  I used an A-Door-Able to create the little doors and the shaker window in the center.  The shaker window uses a CTMH clear card that I cut up to fit inside the A-Door-Able.  The paper used is called Mistletoe and will be available September 1st in the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book!

I have had this card for a couple of months now and have been dying to share with you all!  So, because I don't have anything else photographed at the moment, I will share this!  LOL


Supplies used: 
Paper: Mistletoe (Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea book)
Stamp set: A little Buzz
Embellishments: Cocoa Ribbon, Spring Blossom Blooms, A-Door-Ables, Red Sparkles, Chocolate Bitty Brads
Technique: Embossing and Glitter Shaker 

Thanks for stopping by!!

I hope that this has you ALL excited about the upcoming paper pack!!

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!

Back from Yellowstone and finishing some projects!

How about a few cards??  I started this 16 Card Workshop from Wishes a few weeks ago but could not finish until I purchased another package of Cherry-O opaques.  I used 1 package per 8 cards and actually had a couple left over that I cut apart and used just the pearls for accents.

I am really loving these multi-card workshops lately.  For one, I am killing several birds with 1 stone, so to speak.  I am keeping a few cards for myself to send out.  I am bundling 4 cards and envelopes to use as giveaways in my prize drawings.  PLUS I am using single cards to put into my customers bags with their orders.  OH and 1 more thing......in the process of it all I am using what I have in my stash and showing off the gorgeous papers and embellishments that CTMH offers!!!

I hope that you were all able to take advantage of the AWESOME 2, 4, 6, 8 sale that CTMH has had going for the past 8 days!  I can honestly say that I have never seen this great of a sale since I have been a customer or a consultant.  WAY TO GO CTMH!!!  Thanks for giving us such awesome products at such a great discount!!

Well, on to 8 of the 16 cards that I created with this workshop.  I did not follow exactly the cutting dimensions for my cards.  I added 16 pieces of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Sweet Leaf CS to use as my card base.  The cards that are shown in the Wishes book are all built on the card base itself which looked a bit plain to me using the Cherry-O Creative Basics papers.  So, I built everything on the Sweet Leaf bases and then adhered to my pre-scored CTMH cards.

Supplies used: 
Paper: Cherry-O Creative Basics, Sweet Leaf CS, Tulip Cs and Colonial White CS
Stamps: Thank You, Dainty Thoughts, Bowl of Cherries, SOTM (can't remember the name off hand)
Ink: Chocolate, Tulip, Sweet Leaf and Blush
Embellishments: Blush Ric Rac, Cherry-O Opaques, Basic Buttons and Chocolate Brads
Wishes Card Confidence Book: 16 card workshop
Bulk Card and Envelops from CTMH (50 pre-scored card bases and 50 envelopes)

Thanks for stopping by!!  

I hope that this has inspired you to give one of these workshops a try from the Wishes Book.  They are a ton of fun to create and  super cute too!

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!
