LCC Sketch

I though about this for a bit 
First I  panicked thinking I would have to draw something 
Then I realized I could do a card from a sketch 

                                         It is a simple sketch and after it is finished
                          I am thinking I am doing too many cards without stamping and coloring
                                     Show us what your take is

 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?????????

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
