All Stampin' Up "Stamp- a- Rama"

I went to an all day SU make and take yesterday called 'Stamp-A-Rama', and these are the cards we made during the make and take portion of the day.
Most of the cards are made with a new stamp set from the Summer Mini called 'Watercolor Trio'.
The techniques were simple and easy, and I love the results, especially the butterfly on vellum card, and the pink & white birthday card.
I learned a few new techniques from the demonstrations, and hope to have time to try them this week,
thanks for looking!

Mojo 137 - Some Vintage Goodness

Mojo 137

This is a great sketch, and a perfect opportunity for me to use my new Tim Holtz/ Sizzix filmstrip die.

The cs is file folder cut down, the ink is all Tim Holtz, the images are from Holtz's alterations line, the flower is from Prima and the button is from my stash. The twine is SU, and the pearls are from the $store.

It was very tricky to get the photos behind the film strip, and to not block the sprocket holes, but I LOVE this die.

Corner Bookmark Swap

I'm hosting a 'corner bookmark swap' over at ISC, and here is my contribution.

I saw this idea on Cindy Laurence's blog, and loved them!

I went with a vintage travel theme to suggest the old proverb - travel the world without leaving your home, with a good book!

The cs is bazzill, the pp, rub-ons and stickers are from a kit, and came from the $ store.

I used a Fisker's punch for the detail.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'd love a comment.

House Mouse Swap

This card is for Cheryl's swap over at ISC, any HM stamps, any theme, any occasion. You are supposed to send 5 extra stamped images to trade as well as finished cards.

I coloured the image with prismacolor pencil, the cs is all bazzill, I used my cuttlebug folders and a MS punch. The flower is from the $store, and the ribbon is from my stash. I thin I got it from Len's Mill store.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'd love to have a comment.
