Cracked Glass Razzle Dazzle

Couldn't stop with the quick one....had to make something else. Not only that, I had to attempt a technique I've never done before. I've always wanted to try cracked glass, but I had to wait until 1:00 in the morning to try and figure it out. It worked. Yippee! This card used lots of new SU stuff. I'm not sure if I like this one better than the last one. I may have to try and figure it out after some sleep. Thank you for your comments.

Razzle Dazzle Clean and Simple

I just received my Stampin Up order and had no choice but to stay up waaayyy too late to ink up at least one set of new stamps. This card uses the new Razzle Dazzle stamp set and was pretty quick and easy to put together. I also used the new "suede" color from SU. In fact, everything on this card is from SU. Hope you like it.

Sterling Rose

Thank you for all of your kind comments on my peace rose card. My mother's favorite rose is a "sterling". I attempted to duplicate the colors using SU's pale plum and perfect plum reinkers. All of the papers are SU. The ribbon is from my stash and I don't know who makes it as I only had a little piece left. I apologize for posting another rose card, but am hoping that you will enjoy this beautiful rose. Thank you for your comments. Have a great day!

Peace Rose

Oh my goodness! Unless you are planning on being addicted to a new technique - don't try this. Just click on the picture if you want to see the rose in more detail (highly recommended.) I've made over 20 different roses and just need to finish making the cards for them. This was the first rose I made using plain old H20 and reinkers. All of the products are SU. The stamp set is Fifth Avenue Floral. I will try and post a tutorial over the coming weekend. I saw these on the internet, but I apologize because I can't seem to remember whose blog it was. Thank you for looking and leaving your comments.

Colorado Summer

Thought you might appreciate this picture of the Colorado River. I took my boys to Denver on Tuesday to put them on an airplane to Corpus Christi. They will be at Camp Stewart for a month. Hopefully, when I stop crying, I'll be able to spend some time in my stamp room. I took this picture at a gas station in Vail on our way to Denver. Have a great day!
