Earth Day

Yesterday was Earth Day. So for Wednesday Stamper I used some bits and pieces left over from other projects to make this card. The background was made with a faux batik technique. First stamp with versamark and then emboss image with clear embossing powder. Then with distress inks ink the entire image. You then iron the image with a piece of paper on top. The embossing melts onto the paper leaving a batik look. The stamps in this card are Paula Best, All Night Media, Kodomo Stamper's Anonymous and some chops from a book on chops.


The theme from Theme Thursday is famous faces. Here is one by Leonardo DaVinci. The stamp is by Lost Coast. The background stamps are Invoke. I used Distress Inks by Ranger.

Any Ideas?

This is an accordian book I have been working on for while. The stamps are by Fancy Pants and the papers are DCWV. I just can't decide what to put in the book. Do you have any ideas?

This is a box I got from IKEA. I used a bunch of papers that I have been collecting that are pink and brown. I love that combo for papers. I made this for a friend of ours daughter's graduation from High School.

Coaster Box

I have not had much time for my artwork lately. This is an older project I made using coasters. I stamped the inside and the outside of the box. The ribbon is by Martha Stewart. I believe the stamps are Rubber Cottage and Stamp Camp.
