CHF: Thomas Kinkade

The new Cornish Heritage Farms Blog challenge is to use your Thomas Kinkade stamps.
My regular visitors know that I love the Thomas Kinkade stamps...A LOT!

For my challenge card I used The Light of Peace by Thomas Kinkade.

I colored the image with my copic markers.
The sentiment is from Script Essential Expressions.

Here's a closer view of this beautiful image.

Dreamweaver and Stampendous meet again!

Two of my favorite companies are teaming up this week for a terrific collaboration!

Dreamweaver Stencils Design Team and the Stampendous Design Team swapped products and will be sharing their creations all week long!

Today I have a canvas creation to share with you.

I started with a 6 x 6 canvas.

I sprayed the entire canvas with Strawberry Daiquiri Memory Mist.

Then I stenciled the Corner Flowers Stencil by Dreamweaver Stencils with Translucent Embossing Paste.  It didn't quite give me the effect I was hoping for but it still left an interesting texture for the background of the project.

The next layer was created by stenciling Pinwheel Checkerboard with Black Matte Embossing paste on to a gray cardstock panel.

This lovey lady is Glance Stamp from Stampendous.
I covered her head with lots of fun flowers and finished off her look with a beautiful neaklace by May Arts!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Check out more fabulous projects!

Fun with Xyron

Xyron has teamed up with the ladies from the Cardmaker Blog this week and we will be sharing projects made with terrific products from Theresa Colins/Xyron.

They sent me the amazing Create-a-sticker and some beautiful paper to play with for our colaboration.

I started by cutting the paper into various size strips and then ran it through the Create-a-Sticker to quickly back them with adhesive.

After that it took just a few minutes to create these two beautiful cards!

I added flowers and a sentiment from Rubbernecker on this one.

I used the same flowers and a sentiment from The Stamps of Life for the second one.

Make sure you stop by the Cardmaker Blog  all week to see more great Xyron projects from the design team!

April Creative Cafe' Fun Fold Card

Today I have another fun fold card that I made with The Rubber Cafe' April Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month.

I first saw this style card on Frances' Blog.  Since she's a friend of mine so I just asked her for the measurements and she gave them to me!  Saved me the time of trying to figure it out!

Check out those bows...pretty dang perfect, huh?
I finally got a Zutter Bow it All and I don't know how I ever lived with out it!!!

I truly didn't think I needed one because I tie pretty nice bows but since getting it, I use it for all my bows-even the single ones.

Want to make one of these fun fold cards?

I have a step by step tutorial with measurements on
