Nick Bantok Stamp

Quite some time ago, I went to a craft get-together at a friend's house.  Besides serving us a wonderful lunch, she allowed us to get into her craft supplies and play.  I had never seen the Nick Bantok line of stamps and I fell in love immediately.  The angel on this card was stamped at the party and I just recently found a home for it on this birthday card for someone whose name starts with 'L'.  I had a lot of burlap in the craft room that month and it was showing up on everything - including this card.

P.S.  I finally started an art journal and I am looooving it.  It is different making art just to please myself - with no intended event or person (victim?) in mind.  If anything is worth publishing, you'll be the first to know....

P.S.S.  I did fix that hanging thread before I sent the card.

Rosette Birthday

A card I made for my son-in-law (whom I adore).  I used the Tim Holtz rosette die cut and some linen paper I have been enjoying these days.

Button Fairy Swap

Here is a fun way to enjoy those great buttons you have in your stash.  I made these for a 'button fairy swap' and can't stop making them now.  You make a fairy (just add wings to anyone you think is fairy-worthy) and then wire together a button tail.  Voila!

What do you do with them?  Well you can hang them anywhere - I put a little wire hook on the back.  Mostly, I give them away to special people.

Build a Monster

Had so much fun making this card.  I stamped with the Stampin'up 'Build a Monster' kit and then colored with Copic markers.  Also added some motion lines after reading about them in Rubber Stamp Madness.  I wanted the whole card to jump around!
