To done

Well I joined in on an altered post card swap. I have been pushing the Kraft post card around the craft room for awhile now I keep picking it up thinking"Where did this piece of Kraft paper come from?" or "This should be in my close to my heart scraps" then I flip it over and say "oh yea" lol. So I got a few demos done for my card group to see the new Flirty paper pack and what our new Artiste cartridge can do and needed something different to do so I decided it was as good a time as any to get my altered postcard finished. I loved the look of the kraft colored paper and didn't want to mess up the actual postcard so I took a scrap of ctmh Kraft paper and my new Tim holtz embossing tray and used his reflection stamp to emboss and stamp the Kraft paper. I then went over the embossed areas with broken china distress ink added some bright cheery rubon flowers, "wish you were here" cut from sentimentals and a heart from art Philosophy (which I stamped with Tim holtz map stamp and inked the edges with broken china), popped up a beach babe and finished.

Birthday card

I probably mentioned in my last post that one of my "niece's" birthday party was over the weekend, so on top of the paper dolls I made a birthday card for her of course. I used the new close to my heart cartridge Artiste which I love!!!! I also used the stamps from the cartridge set. The cupcake and inside saying which says "I hope your birthday is as sweet as you" from the birthday celebration set and then the image behind the cupcake is from kudos. I even decorated the envelope. The paper I used is old DCWV. I believe Artiste is going to be one of my most used cartridges.

Paper doll mania

Well I have been looking at the Paper Doll Teen Scene cartridge since it came out and trying to justify the purchase.  I finally broke down and bought it that is four new Cartridges in the last month or so.  I never purchase cartridges on my own.  I normally ask for them as gift for various occasions. I'm not regretting of course I have been making paper dolls likes its my job haha. So Thursday I decided that my "nieces" would love to have their own set of paper dolls so I set to making them each one style of doll so they could share them.  I cut out 8 of the 10 hair styles and made them look a likes. Then I cut out 10 outfits from mostly matching papers.  I laminated them and put velcro dots on the outfits and the dolls so they would be easy for the girls to use.  I also decorated boxes that they could store their dolls in and there big enough that I can add to their collection.  With three girls and two boys and 10 hair styles for each and 20 outfits the possibilities are endless.  Especially when you start playing with hair color and skin color or colors of the outfits! And when they get a little older I'll have them come over and make their own!
