Finally the Bookmarkers!

Okay...this is what I'd planned on doing when I first got my crafts back out. I was going to make bookmarkers and try to sell I thought I had better finally get some going. I've been wanting to make something for awhile now with the praying girl stamp. The blue verse bookmark I totally cased from a card by Amy Sheffer. She has beautiful sure to check them out!!

Cheerful Thoughts

I made this card for Becca. I'm sending her a little goodie bag in appreciation for all of the hard work she does for us bloggers and admirers of her work!! Hopefully she won't check my blog before she gets the card.
  1. The stamps are from Rosebud Rubber Stamps (not in my Etsy store yet.)
  2. For the Roses, I embossed with gold, and I used watercolor paper with tombow markers and a watercolor blender brush
  3. The brown paper is from SU, and I'm not sure where the striped paper came from (it's the backside of the pink printed paper).
  4. I used dark chocolate "perfect match" ink from for the words.

I won blog candy!!

I can't believe it!! I won some blog candy!! The folks over at Our Daily Bread had an Anniversary celebration and they were giving out blog candy, and I won one of the stamp sets over on Becca's blog. As soon as I get the set I'll make a card and post it.

I believe in the Old Rugged Cross

I'm having more fun playing with my Rosebud Rubber Stamps!! These are not on my Etsy store, and I'm not sure if these are still being made or'll have to check out and look under "Rosebud Rubber Stamps."

To make this card I used some crackle background paper from Paper Pizazz and Basic Grey Skate Shoppe. Spellbinders circles & scalloped circles and tags. A couple of buttons from dill-buttons (hobby lobby), and a couple of gold half-pearls. I chalked around the images with brown chalk. I'm going to try to get a better picture of this tomorrow when the light is better!!

Cross Names of Jesus Easter Card

I like how this card turned out. I used a kaleidascope stamp pad (riviera maybe?) and cut it out with a spellbinders die. The patterned papers are from Basic Grey Euphoria, except for the flower punched from a BG bittersweet remnant. A flower button, pink dot ribbon, and some pearls finish it off. The words "Christ is Risen" was embossed with white embossing powder. I also used a decorative scissors edge on the center strip and rubbed some white ink on the edges.

Easter Bookmark

I had something very different in mind for this, but my end result is usually very different from what I started out wanting, so that's no surprise. The colors are a little bold, but I still like it.

All stamps are from Rosebud Rubber Stamps. I used spellbinders long rectangle and scallop, and the little tag is also from spellbinders. The egg was gold embossed and watercolored.

I made these little cards with the intention of making them into magnets. I also wanted to add a little easel back so they could be displayed on a table top. I'll have to work on the size so that they fit on the self-adhesive magnets that I got. Some of the stamps I used can be purchased in my Etsy Store.
