Finally, with your fingers rub the image where you want it. That will temporarily adhere it to your project. Then you can rub it with the stick
I also used the clear window sheets for the cover. I thought this dressed the card up a bit. When stamping on the clear window sheets, you need to use the Stazon ink. It is a little sticky. So be careful when stamping on the window sheets with it. Stamp straight down and then lift straight up!!
For the inside of the mini album, I wanted soft images. I inked up the butterfly's in VersaMark ink, then stamped them on my cardstock. I then used my pastel chalks over the ink. The VersaMark ink is somewhat sticky and adheres the chalk to the images. The stems are chalked too! For the greeting, I used the Occassions Mini catalog set, Oval All and Oval scallop punch.
Open up my card again, and I have a couple spots for some photos. You can only see one since I had a hard time filming it!

Hello Stampin' Friends! I thought this was a neat project. I bought a card box from Wal-Mart. A nice sturdy one. It is nice and high too so different sized cards will fit in the box. The card box actually came with store bought cards and dividers. I thought the dividers were cool and would come in handy.

Hello Stampin' Friends!! Here are some scrapbook pages I created using Stampin' Up!'s Priceless stamp set. What a wonderful set. I love the bold images. This made creating this page a snap. I decided to get into some of my old 35mm photos and scrap some of those memories! There are several more pages coming up. In these scrapbook posts, you will get a look at my 'style' of scrapping. I think it is unique. You can be the judge!! I like to use my knife and cut around images so that my photos or journal fit behind the stamped image...as seen with the butterflies. These two pages also have a lot of distress on the edges.

Hello Stampin' Friends! I thought you might like to see my new 'office'. My stampin' room! I think it could be about twice the size... but I also thought I needed a mudroom, bedrooms, kitchen.... g-whiz. So many rooms to go into a home! I couldn't quite get it all in the photos. The ceilings are high, so I try to take advantage of that. I might even add another shelf. I use cabinets for storing my rubber stamps...Stampin' Up! of course!! They are all along the top. The base cabinets are housing some other supplies like my Stampin' Around Wheels, and other containers with accessories. There isn't much actual 'work' space, so I can't have a ton out on the one counter that is in there. Although I suppose you may laugh at that since the counter is full....ooops. Can't help it I guess. Everything has a home in this room. Lo-ove it!!

my friends that placed an order with me. It is a 3 X 3. Those are a really fun size to make! I used the One of a Kind set by Stampin' Up! My color scheme is this weeks splitcoast color challenge. I should have tried the kraft....think I will tomorrow!!! I used Creamy Caramel, Soft Sky and Basic Black. The flower was actually stamped on Soft Sky with 1) Versa Mark pad 2) basic black. Then clear embossed. The flower in the center of the larger flower is from Boho Backgrounds by Stampin' Up! I thought it matched the tiny flower on the 'for you' stamp. The 'for you' image was punched out with the Window Word Punch. I used the Photo Corner punch in the corner of the note. The dots and the flower were colored in with Gel pens I picked up at Sams club. I am happy with them so far! They are Pilot G2 retractable gel ink rolling ball pen. 20 pens, assorted colors!! (just in case you wanted to know) I think that sums it up!

My main stamp set is One of a Kind by Stampin' Up! I used the Prints Background stamp again for this one. I inked it in Pink Passion, then marked it up a bit with the Real Red. The flower was first stamped on Vanilla in Basic Black. Then I stamped it on Real Red, then on Pink Passion. I cut out the Flower and paper pieced it. The center was created with Build a Brad. (AGAIN!!) I did a bit of paper piercing around the edges and corners of the main image. Layered it with Real Red and then Pink Passion. Dotted a bit of Black around the edges. Gingham Ribbon was added. The I inked up the 'for you' with Versa Mark Pad, then used markers directly over the versa mark ink on the rubber so I could emboss the image in clear. I punched it out with the Key Tag punch then added some black doodles. That sums this card up!! Hope you like!!!

My color scheme for these cards is Real Red and Pink Passion. These colors came from the inspiration from Sandy's card in a previous post. My stamp set is One of a Kind by Stampin' Up! The background stamp is Print Pattern by Stampin' Up!. I inked that large stamp in Pink Passion and then stamped the smaller flowers scattered about in Real Red. I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the centers of them.
I stamped the main flower image in Basic Black and water colored with Pink Passion. The Red is colored in solid with Real Red Stampin' Write Marker. The full flower is embossed using the versa mark marker and clear powder. I LOVE this technique. Makes your image really pop. In the center of the flower I used 'Build a Brad'. Pretty cool. I just got these for the first time. I am really happy with them! What fun! I used them in all three cards! I backed up this main flower with Black and distressed the edges with my distressed tool. I also paper pierced all around the square.
For punches, I used the Designer Label punch and the Key Tag punch. The ribbon is the black and white gingham. I love this ribbon. It is super easy to work with. Not stiff at all. I added a brad from the pewter Hodgepodge Hardware set. Some white doodling all around, and I am done! Do you like!?! I had so much fun with these colors!

For my card, I used Bliss Blue and Lavendar Lace. The stamp set is the retired set Spring Things. It is a real cute layout. Hope you like, and thanks for hangin in there with me. I am so busy with Kids, potty training, building a house, and 'spring things' !!

I decided to do my first Mojo Monday sketch. Pretty cool sketch! I really like all the different elements on this one!
I also took the SplitcoastStampers Color Challenge, CC168, Vanilla, Sage, and Choco Chip. Really no challenge. Quite easy to work with! I had those cool colors in the DSP Outlaw. I thought the stripes would look good on the chair. The stamped image was actually stamped three times. Once on the vanilla, once on the striped paper and then once on the white. The only part I kept off the white paper is the 'don't ask'. It really 'pops' that way.
I added a bunch of details to this card while still keeping it very clean. No brayering. I added paper piercing all over. Some was used for faux stitching, some was actually pierced on the reverse side of the paper. For example: I actually placed the striped piece of paper, stripe side down onto my Mat Pack. Then poked the holes. I love the look. Basically, had I done it stripes up, you really wouldn't have seen the holes. The paper is too busy. Sometimes the paper is just too dark too. Reversing it gives more definition and you can actually see white around the holes, a natural highlight, if you will!! The holes around the circle punch are reversed too.
I added some corners with my Photo Corner Punch, got into my Hodgepodge hardware and added some hardware and ribbon. I think that sums it up!
Hope this makes you smile ;)

I matted the card with Close to Cocoa and Always Artichoke. No ribbon on this card since it is for my dad. No scallops. Just some 'tough' Hodgepodge hardware!!
