Creative Concepts - First Quarter 2009

It's sharing time again! Here are some cards that I had published in the 1st Quarter issue of Hobby Lobby's Stamping, Stationery and Scrapbooking Magazine. If you haven't picked up a copy of this magazine, you are really missing out. For only $3 you get dozens of great cards, scrapbook pages and altered projects from a variety of designers. Check it out!

My first card is a birthday card with one of my favorite lines from Making Memories: 5th Ave. Sophia. It was my first time playing with Maya Road sheers on this also. Details are here.

This card was actually created for a Caardvarks challenge with Becky Fleck. Fans of my work (or at least people who tease me the most) will notice my gratuitous use of fibers, thank you very much. Details are here.

For this card I went a little old school. I used Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) with Pearl Ex powders and made my own snowflake embellishment. Details are here.

My final card was made during the finalist phase for the Purple Onion Designs DT call. I stamped the hearts and embossed with white powder. Then I used watercolor paints to create the swirly, soft background colors. Remember that you can click on each page to get a closer peek. Thanks for looking!
