Stamp-a-faire Tie dye

Well here it is, my final card /post for the evening.  I really enjoyed all the tutorials, lots of great ideas to try in the future. But there are only so many hours in the day one can stamp..... sadly for this girl it's not 24. sigh! I used water with perfect pearls mixed in to give my card a little shimmer, I like the result. I'm off to bed now ,as I have a busy day at work tomorrow.. nite all and happy stamping. Sam

Stamp-a-Faire Homemade Embellishments

I'm back with this card showcasing the homemade embellishment felt bow as shown by Melissa,  I noticed I selected alot of Melissa's ideas....hmm . I really liked how easy this was to do, but the end result looks like it took alot more effort. I will be doing this again, I want to try it with fabric to see if it looks as nice. enjoy, Sam

Stamp-a-Faire Ribbon challnge

Hello again. This is my card for the ribbon challnge for Papertrey ink's stamp-a-faire event.  When I saw the video by Melissa showing the leaves from ribbon , I wanted to try something different with that idea. This is what I came up with, hope you like it. Sam

Stamp-a-faire card set

Hello, I finally finished all my cards for the stamp-a-faire challenges... I know a day late and a dollar short, but yesterday was my anniversary and my birthday, so I had to spend some time with the hubby.  This is a card set using the fill-able frames die as shown by Melissa  . It has ten cards in the box . My co-workers will love this tomorrow... I take in all my cards I make for various challenges to work and sell them dirt cheap... there is no way I could ever use them all. more posts to follow... Sam
