My first shaker card

This past week I accomplished a couple stamping firsts: a shaker card and a suspension card (I will be showing you this one at a later date). I also accomplished a couple stamping lasts: a shaker card and a suspension card, LOL.
WOW, both of these techniques were a major pain in the butt. Today's card didn't exactly turn out how I had envisioned it but after investing a couple hours in the card I didn't want to just throw it away. All of the stamps I used are from DRS Designs. Oh and sorry about the lighting in the photo, we have had a lot of cloudy, overcast days lately and I just haven't been able to get a great photo of this card.
Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, SU and Amuse ribbon, alcohol markers, snow glitter, rhinestones, foam dimensionals, transparency sheet, small snowflake punch.

Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow , as amazing as it may seem, I have a non-Christmas card to share, LOL. I hope you all have a terrific day!

A Glittery Christmas

When I got this stamp from DRS Designs all I could think of was glittery pillar candles. My cousin Tina made us one for our wedding with our wedding invite on the candle and covered in glitter. It was so pretty. Anyway, so I decided to play around with some glitter...
For the first card I stamped the image on a transparency sheet with Stazon black ink and then I added the glitter to the backside of the transparency using a Sakura quickie glue pen. This is a tedious job for someone with lots of patience (I don't have patience so this card just about drove me nuts - it took me 3 days to finish the main image). You have to add glue and glitter to only one section at a time, let it dry and then do another section. For the second card I just stamped the image on cardstock, colored it and then covered it in dazzling diamonds glitter.

Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, transparency sheet, misc glitter, glitter brads, May Arts ribbon, SU ticket corner punch, foam dimensionals.

Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, TAC SU, Prismacolor makers, SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Gold embossing powder, Amuse self adhesive star rhinestones, misc ribbon, foam dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous Thursday!

Another year older

Getting older isn't the joyous occassion that it used to be. Funny how when you are young you look forward to birthdays and when you start to get up there in age well...dread them! I sometimes wonder how I got to be so old. I asked my dd to guess how old she thought I was going to be today and she said 85...honestly, do I look 85 (I feel like it somedays, but surely I don't look it). Today is my 34th birthday and my daughter thinks I'm 85! My dh is going to be 40 in a couple weeks, I wonder how old she thinks he is, LOL!
To take a little bit of the sting out of getting older, several wonderful ladies sent me these gorgeous cards! Thank you to every one of you for brightening my day!
