COUPONS

 A friend came across FREE envelopes at a yard sale
Thinking of me she took them and passed them to me
They are not a size  I would use in card making so I came up with this
This one is for her

I made the folder with two layers of heavy card stock
Putting them together so they would fold over the envelopes
I glued 6 envelopes together to make the pockets
Decorated the front one and added cards to each pocket  (index )
With tabs

I used a die to shape the front edge and a bit of valcro to hold it closed
Hope she likes it when I get it to her

I have enough envelopes to  make 50 of these  ANYBODY?????????

These children are from two ART IMPRESSION sets

Easter Bag


An Easter bag for a sweet little neighbor 
Inside is a flower pot soil and seeds 
Then all the goodies a 12 yr old is looking for 
My hope is she will plant the seeds and enjoy the flowers for a few months

Gelli Pad

I received a beautiful card from my British pen pal 
When I asked about it she sent links for me to see the technique 




I had most of the supplies but not  the main piece A ROUND GELI PAD 
So like all crafters
I put on the thinking cap and decided I could make the technique work with templates 


So I got everything out 
Cut the template with a circle die



                                         
                                              Applied the in with brayer to the gelli pad


Stamped on the gelli pad 



Then laid  the template over the area I want to use
                                                           That may not be clear .
                                             The images at the bottom are the stamps I used



                                                 
                                   






 Smooth the cardstock over the template to transfer the ink design on to the cs

LCC Spooky


I had a little struggle with the theme Spooky
I tried Halloween but they all seemed too cutsy
So back to the drawing board
Still Halloween but much darker a theme
I stamped and colored with copic
Then used webbing  over the finished piece
Asked around the  house and it seems to be spooky
What do you think
Check out the other DT work

This little darling is blowing her bubbles 
A perfect way to play when you are alone
So I chose to make this card for the Child Play Ch

I did the background in chalk
Die cut the circles which are very mush like bubbles
Added the clouds
The image is colored with copic markers and
hand cut She is foam mounted
ENJOY

LCC 129 Child Play



I think this qualifies for Child Play

SteamPunk


A few things I don't often do
I seldom work from a kit
I seldom do Halloween
I seldom do
Steampunk

This time I did all three

I have a sweet friend who keeps supplying me with occasional  kits
My motto is "It is not mine until I use it "
So as soon as it is on my desk I must attack
I have too admit I find kits restricting and I take many liberties
This kit could be a real clock
I decided against that but finished it without the fittings
I will take the face off fill it with candy for a very sweet little neighbor
