Wedding Bling

Happy Saturday to all.  My sister wanted some wedding cards made with some "Bling", so I used the July Paper Pumpkin gems, and embossed them in gold, silver, and dazzling diamonds.  and embossed the jar too.  Add a dazzling bow, and you're done.  Let me know what you think.  the flowers on the left are in progress., I will show them later.  They are just simply embossed in white on vellum and I sponge color on the back and fussy cut them out.  What do you think?  Thanks for visiting me today.  Carol Smith

More Casing goin' on :)

So is everyone staying cool?  Whew!!!!  More reason to stay indoors and play with stamps, right?  Well the first one today is cased, I believe by Robbie Rubala.  Thanks, Robbie :)  I made several color choices for different occasions.  The other ones were just dabbling, but the one embossed in the new copper I just couldn't get my coloring even.  Hope you enjoy them.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Fine-tip glue pen creations

These cards were really fun to  make.  I first stamped the blossoms all over white cardstock.  They sat on my table for some time.  Didn't know what to do with them.  I finally decided I would cover all the images with the fine-tip glue pen and let it dry overnight.  Then I sponged color on over that, all in different colors, which gave them different personalities.  Lost lagoon, peach and plum.  I had salutations and the flower from birthday blooms, so I colored the flower in with some rich razzleberry, which goes really well with the plum.  then I covered that with the glue pen.  They came together nice, and I added different elements to each one.  Let me know how you feel.  thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith  ps- I fussy cut the flower and put that on top.

I am spending more time in my craft room of late, and I put together some cards from things that were laying on my work table.  I had no ideas for them, they just kinda put themselves together.  the flowers I had made with vellum, embossed in white, and I spied them and sponged color on the backs.  Added the lace, and the sentiments.  How do you like them?  Thanks for visiting again.   Carol Smith


Are you surviving the heat?  I suppose we should be used to it, so I try to stay indoors and play with my stamps.These are cased from the "Everything" stamp set that was free in the past paper pumpkin kit.    I just changed the coloring.  Input appreciated.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

More flowered cards

Happy Tuesday to you everyone!  The first cards are cased, I can't remember who to credit.  I just loved them.  Hope you do too.  The basket I was just playing with to see how it colored up.. Pretty delicate, but the end result it very pretty.  Hope you are inspired by them as I was.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol smith
