Halloween ATC

For Chris' Dracula swap. Gotta love even a Dracula dress Changito. For the record, NEVER stamp on black patterned paper. It's nearly impossible to cut it out correctly.

August Stamp Camp III

This card was VERY hard to put together. But, I love how it turned out! There was stuff stamped on the inside but I forgot to take a pic. We also did a 4th card but I still haven't put mine together. There was discussion over ribbon placement & I never landed anywhere with it.

August Stamp Camp II

I really dig this card. I did change a bit from the sample. The khaki circles and stars were supposed to be white. I didn't like the contrast of the white against the khaki so I changed it. LOL I wish I had stamped MORE stars on the twill tape!

August Stamp Camp I

Last week's stamp camp! Such a manly card. Since I don't usually send cards to man-friends, one of my girlies will get it. It's got flowery bud things on it, that's girly, right?? We used the white gel pen to color on the embossed bird.

Finally, a new share?

I have so many things that I have taken pics of and want to get on here but, for some reason or another, I haven't managed it. So, instead of worrying about what "needs" to go on here, I'm just gonna stick some out here!

These are pages for Patti's Christmas Circle Journal. When I got her's, I thought "oh goodie, no theme. this will be easy". Well, not so much. I knew I wanted to color block & I was pretty sure which images I wanted to use. I first stamped them all on white copy paper, cut them out leaving a bit of border around each. I messed around placing them, cutting them down farther or marking the ones that needed to be bigger. Then, I filled in the spaces with images that fit the area and theme. Then, I tried to determine what colors would work best. I should have had more red & green but, I need to color some images so that required they be on lighter colors. After alot of work, it turned out fairly cute. On to the next journal!!!
