I am not going to show my REAL naughty things on this blog. You will have to hunt me down to see that :-P However, I will show two naughty cards I have made recently with stamps from Viva Las Stamp Vegas!
I also was super happy to use up some "Paper Trunk" paper I have had in my stash for a long time. Don't get me wrong, I really liked the paper when I first got it, but after designing for a few clubs with it I ran out of uses for it. I had as many as 5 sheets of the same piece of paper in the line. It lends itself well to anything grungy, country and now pirate ;-) This is my take on the sketch:
Isn't she cute? I found the skull in Indiana on clearance. I think it makes a great addition to the card.
I used Copic Markers to color her in and made her skin tan. She is a pirate after all and on the water in the sun.
I then added this to the corner of the inside of the card:
I really had a lot of fun making this card and think it turned out great. It really is fantastic when stuff out of one's stash can be used. I see many more uses with this particular pin up in the future. Bombshell stamps has made a holiday accessory set to go with her that I ordered. Stay tuned to see the fun stuff that can be created with that set too!
Do you like flowers? I love to made fabric flowers! My daughter got into duct tape purse making (truth be told I did too) and we would have lots of left over fabric from lining of the inside of it. As a Scrapper I can't get rid of anything. I mean that would totally go against the code of SCRAPPING in which one should use SCRAPS. So, I started making flowers :-) Then companies like Close To My Heart started making fabric to match their paper and it has just been a down hill spiral for me since then. Here are a few of my flowers:
Card I made for a sweet friend. I wanted her to be a pink angel and must have just watched "Grease" because she had to have pink hair -- just like a "Beauty School Drop Out!"
I am kind of into cupcakes and make flowers for my daughter's birthday party.
A card for my best friend using flowers from my stash.
I have to show you a duct tape purse, right? Well here one is!
Well, it looks like I am. As much as I have tried to stay away from it, I have decided to return to blogging. Why you ask? I have started playing with a few different companies products and I LOVE the blog hopping AND want to be part of it. The only way to be part of it is to blog -- so here I am.
I am not scrapbooking as much as I did in the past. In fact, there has been months gone by in which I have not done anything in my craft room other than dust it. Maybe this will help me get back into it?
In the meantime, here are a few cards I have made in the recent past:
I used "Bombshell Stamps" to create all of these and recently won a $20 credit to their store and was published on their blog! Check it out!
