Don't you just love the plaid background? I made it with My Favorite Things plaid maker stamp set. You have got to see this! The image was stamped with a Northwoods stamp and colored with copic markers. The cardinals were embossed with sparkle embossing powder from Sparkle n Sprinkle. The beautiful background die was lent to me by a friend and is from Memory Box.

Well, I have finally cleared off my desk, got my computer up and running so I guess that's enough to get my mojo going! I chose a Halloween theme for today's card. The paper is the Bewitched line from We R Memory Keepers; the stamps from Close to My Heart and die cuts from My Favorite Things.

Stampaway USA, Joe Rotella's Class

I have had one of these stamps for a long time but never have really used it. I wasn't sure how to use it and this class gave me so much inspiration. The only ways that I had seen before this was to color all of the intricate parts of the design. I wasn't sure I could do it justice. In this class we used dry embossing, mica powders, alcohol inks, and to use the animal feet as a border. I loved all of them! Which is your favorite?

I made this card and matching gift bag for my friend's 70th birthday. We went all through school together and it is hard to believe that we are all getting to that age. I made the bag first and then had to match the card to it. Never again. I learned my lesson, the card first!  She loved it!!

Mojo 304

I realized that I have not made one Christmas Card this year so here is my first one. I saw the technique for inking the embossing folder and gave it a try. Then I embossed the white part with sparkle embossing powder. I love the look, what do you think?
