Priscillastyles Victorian Fan MMSC110

This card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC110 - found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/. The image is the Victorian Fan image from priscillastyles found here: http://priscillastyles-store.blogspot.com/search/label/Fan. I loved working with this image! It's so feminine and beautiful! I paper-pieced the fan section with the DP used as the matting for the image, and cuttlebugged the sides. The sentiment is a sticker. Hope you like it. tfl

Summer Reading & Relaxation SC336

This card is for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge - SC336. The Dandelion stamp is from Hero Arts. This is one of my favorites. I stamped it twice onto a blue paper scrap I had with white pigment ink and used detail white embossing powder, which was then heat set. Layered that onto a piece of white cardstock, which I cuttlebugged, put together with the little "Relax" sentiment strip, added some ribbon, and Voila...a bookmarker. Cuttlebugged the card, stamped the dandelion in blue on the inside. The bookmarker is attached to the card with the cute little white spiral clips. I'm going to make a few of these with different designs for our local craft fair in October. tfl

PS - The little wooden birdie is from one of our local nurseries...isn't he just adorable???!!

Post-It Clipboards

These post-it clipboards are a start on a few papercrafts I am adding to my cards for a craft fair I am doing with a friend here in October.

Today's Free For All challenge - F4A67 - at Splitcoaststampers is to make anything but a card, so here they are. I did not design these...my friend, Amy, introduced me to them, and she found them here: http://thesouthernstamper.blogspot.com/2011/03/stampin-up-craft-fair-itemmini.html. This site has lots of cool ideas for craft fair items, and she even tells you how much she usually sells them for...very helpful!
