Ellen's 12 Days of Christmas Entry

This is a very tiny card I did one of Lockhart's itty bitty stamps with Christmas ornaments. The cardstock is Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream and Sweet Blush. I put diamond glaze over the ornaments to give them some shine.

Card by Shayann

A card my 7-year old neice made for my mom. She picked out a couple stamps and the set of Spica Glitter pens and went to work. Isn't it amazing?

Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 46. I have no business making cards when those presents need to be wrapped but this is so much fun. Patterned paper is K & Company Amy Butler. Green cardstock is PTI Spring Moss. Stampenduous Branch stamp, Crafty Secrets Birds. The birdies were colored with copics. Hello stamp is Hero Arts. Martha Stewart border punch.

This is a desk set I made for three co-workers. I got the idea for the box from Nichole Heady's box from a Valentine project she did last year. I just altered it so it would hold 4 x 4 note cards. Each box holds 6 cards and 6 envelopes. Papers are SU!, Cosmo Cricket, Webster's Pages, and Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream. Stamp set is SU! The monogram labels on the fronts of the boxes are done with JustRite Stampers Monogram letters and designer borders.

AMuse Tag

When I spotted this stamp I had to have it. She is colored with copics. I added some flower soft to give her coat some fuzzy dimension.

Scratch & Dent Ikea find

I needed a very small table to set my sewing machine on. I don't usually leave it out. Therefore, I don't use it as much as I would because I always have to set it up. My mom had the idea of putting it in my spare bedroom walk-in closet (which doubles as a wrapping station and storage) and leaving it out. So off to Ikea I went. I found this and thought it was so strange, wondering what it was for. It looked pretty rough and the tag said $25.00 "as is". As I headed to my car I passed the restaurant part of the store and spotted more of the same table - it was one of their restaurant tables!I masked off the silver edging around the top and sprayed it with Rustoleum Sweet Pea and scrubbed it up. I was thinking if a person had a huge deck and did a lot of entertaining how fun it would be to have several of these.
