Title: Bacon Obession
Stamp used here and here.
This card is a masterpiece of wit and creativity. The psychiatrist's
office is assembled from layers of cardstock. The pig's chair is cut out
and assembled from flocked paper - the rug is also cut out and created
from flocked paper. The inside of the card reads, "You have to get
over this Kevin Bacon obsession." Genius. Everyone loved it.
I made this card using scrapbook paper for a wall, floor
and trim. Used a colored pencil for detail on the trim. Keep calm poster
I printed on card stock and covered with liquid glass. The chair and rug
are cut from flocked paper. I stamped the Dr. Dog and Pig patient, used
colored pencils, cut them out and adhered. I added liquid glass to the
glass lenses, dog nose and pig's eye.
Title: Misty Morning Moose in The Marsh
Stamp used here .
This card is a true work of art, suitable for framing and hanging
anywhere lovely things are hung. The artist used layering, distressing
techniques, embossing, and embellishments to great effect.
I stamped leaf with Versa Mark Ink on linen paper and
clear heat embossed it. Took daubers (sponge) and dabbed distress ink,
Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Ink over image. Heat embossed moose with
trees. Stamped the same leaves on the tree and added the marsh grass.
I layered with corrugated paper and ribbon candy dots.
The clever way this artist used layers of blue acetate to create the depths
of the ocean worked extremely well. She even layered the starfish so that
it appears to be in the foreground as opposed to the plants behind it.
Very nicely done. We loved it!
Took white card, glued Narwhals saying onto card and put
stickers of the sea plants on the bottom of card. Put bubbles on too.
Taped 4 layers of the blue acetate onto card. I made sure each layer had
different waves on top. Starfish taped on the bottom of the card on the
second layer of acetate Narwhal- Stamped onto white card stock. Colored
with gelatos. Cut out shapes and glued to third layer of acetate
Title: Love is....Being A Ferret Mom
Stamp used here.
Our entire team admired the artfully layered and embellished Valentine
featuring two ferrets.
The heartshaped cut
outs are textured and assembled with polish. The color pallette adds a
lovely balance. And despite the number of embellishments
and punch outs added, the design avoided looking cluttered.
The stamped image is colored beautifully.

Title: Remember Our Heroes
Stamp used here.
This lovely Memorial Day card was
layered over a nice cloud cardstock and embellished with shiny
red, white, and blue stars. The vibrant colors used on the stamped image
evoked a powerful feeling of pride and dignity, appropriate to the occasion.
