I would like to first let everyone who looked at my blog a thank you and everyone who left a comment, especially if you weren't in for the blog candy a hug. But most of all I hope I have inspired some of you and that you keep up with my blog. I post most every day. As you can see, I now just get patterns from different sights and then design the project myself now. It took a couple of years, but I am now confident enough to do it myself now so I am very pleased that everyone seemed to like my samples. Second, I like to announce that the winner of my blog candy is: Tenny Kusuma. I used the Random Number Generator and made sure the person full filled all the criteria and was not a demo. I will contact her by email and will have the items sent directly to her from Stampin UP. Congratulations Tenny.
I am going to give you links to blogs and videos that I used to find my inspiration in making the Tri-Shutter Card and the Post - It - Note Organizer.
The scrapbook page is fairly simple to figure out by just looking at it.
The last card used the faux torn vellum technique: On White Card Stock, you mask off part of your cardstock with torn post-it notes and then just begin stamping, layering images and colors until you get the look you want. I stamped En Francais in Rich Razzleberry and then added the stamps from Kind and Caring Thoughts in Soft Suede, Stamped off Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry. I then sponged on three colors in a random pattern -- Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede to fill the empty spaces. Once you have the look you wanted, peel off the post-it-notes and Viola! You have a delightful torn vellum look.
I hope you enjoyed to tour and I usually post something everyday. So keep coming back to look at my creations. If you want more details on exactly what paper I used and what dies and punches I used, then email me and I will let you know. They are all the "In Colors" and the DSP was Razzelberry Lemonaid.
