This card is one of a series that I designed for the young women at church to make for the troops serving in Iraq. We made over 60 cards to donate and the girls had a good time. Thus the designs are simple in nature so we could churn them out. I just had to use my cuddle bug! I thought I'd grabbed my label punch for this one and I forgot so we used the square instead. Oh well...

I've been asked to teach a mini class at a church function about blogging. I am looking for tips I can share with the ladies about blogging. I am sure that most people coming will not have a blog but might want to start one. I of course will give the run down on not giving detailed personal information and things of that nature, but I would love any input you would like to share with me. I'm teaching this class on Saturday, so please leave your comments. Thank you! Anyone who shares could find a RAK in their mailbox!
This is the card I did for my demo swap at the beginning of the month. I thought it would be fun to use the designer paper for the "sentiment" on the card. I stamped the focal image with basic black then colored in with the watercolor wonder crayons. After I was done coloring I went over the seam wisps with 2 way glue and sprinkled glitter over them. the pumpkin pie matte is also glittery (in case you can't see).
This was my experimental idea: I used my glue stick and got the whole front of the pumpkin pie covered generously, then I put the finished image piece on top like usual, then I covered the remaining edges with glitter. I just poured the glitter into my powder pal and scraped the edges through. It gives a magical touch!
Here's a Halloween card that I concocted last week. I was trying to come up with a different shape so it might be a little kooky but I wanted to show off the star bg on both sides. So I cut off part of the wasabi card base and mounted the flying cat on the eggplant matte and glued it where I wanted it to be. I used the Gamsol Magic technique (tutorial on Splitcoast) since I finally got some Prismacolor pencils to try out.
The second card we did in our Card Club this weekend. I had a few people that were new to stamping so I kept things fairly basic so everyone would have a good experience. I'm really happy with the way this turned out. Sorry this picture is a little on the blurry side!

Here is one of the cards we are going to make in my card club this weekend. I wanted to case this one from the catalog but use an alternate color for the background. I chose River Rock I also don't have the Sanded BG so I used my canvas BG instead. Then I distressed it a little by using the direct to paper technique. It's simple and to the point but I think it'll be nice to go that direction this time.
