Acetate Play

This card was created for an anniversary and in response to the cuttlebug challenge on their blog. The front is acetate embossed with my cuttlebug folder and the letters are cut out from the CB as well and glued on the front of the acetate with flowers and bling attached :) The tulips at the bottom are CTMH...I love that stamp! I punched holes at the top to attach the acetate to the inside of the card, greeting behind the tulips on the inside. It didn't scan well to show the acetate, but I love this technique!

Valentines Tin

I finally had a chance to sit and play with the new techniques that Pat shared in the technique junkies newsletter! I created this tin topper for a tin that I found at the dollar store. This one is stamped with my brother in mind :) I used the brayer tapping technique for the background colour and the block collage technique for the stamping. All stamps are CTMH as are the inks (which matched the tin's red perfectly :)) The ribbon is CTMH as well! I can't wait to make more of these to hide little brownies in...
It does feel plain to me, any suggestions to jazz it up a bit?? I am a bit challenged when it comes to the finishing touches, alas....something I am trying to work on!

100 things that make me happy

I challenged a friend to a scrapbook layout of 100 things that make you happy...I challenge any of you that read this to do this as well...even if you are strictly a card'ie....make a list and scrap it..I will try to upload mine,if I ever get it done, lol, I seem to be making a habit of getting photos down and not finishing the layout with the final touches or title, etc....I am trying to go back over completed pages and actually finish them up!

I made this card for a challenge, but never got it uploaded in time...the inside has a corner flourish and says 'you hold the key to my heart'...The stamp is Sarah Kay,The saying is from Close to My Heart (on the inside)the lacing is hemp.....
