Some New Creations....

Here are a few of the things I've been working on over the past couple of months. The Christmas season was busy, and I made my own cards this year, so I didn't have time for a lot else, but I've been making up for it since the holidays! (Which reminds me - I need to post my Christmas card!)

I love playing with Outlines stamps. This is a
set I bought last summer at the Expo and finally had time to play with! I had gotten some really wild colors of cardstock (the lime green and watermelon red) in a set that I didn't know when I would use and the little touches of it worked well on this card!

I've just started playing the the Core'dinations cardstock -
if you're not familiar with it, the inner core of the paper is
colored, so when you tear it or sand it, the color shows.
This one is a black cardstock with a light blue inner core.
I used a Magenta stamp - 1/2 I colored with Perfect Pearls, and half I colored with metallic watercolors. The technique I used was one we played with in a Magenta class using white embossing powder on white cardstock and pastel watercolors - I thought it would be fun to try it on black cardstock with black embossing powder - worked great!

This is a Magenta stamp I decided to play with on two sides of a card, not just one or just an envelope. I made the greeting so it slides out, and you don't have to untie the bow!

This is just one for fun I submitted to Spellbinders and Shimmerz Paints. The stamp is from Stampin' Up!. It's a fun set with all frogs and sayings like "Oh, Hoppy Day!" and "What's New at Your Pad?" Love it!

And here is the February layout for our Scrappin' Sisters club at Wiggles and Giggles. We're doing pages on "All About Me" and this one is Successes and Failures.
