Just Because Card

Today's card is just to brighten someone's day.  This was a technique I found on Pinterest and wanted to try it myself.
The technique was to take the Whipcream cardstock that you are going to stamp on and score it at your desired measurements.  I scored at every 1/4 inch mark.  Then after that, you stamp your images on there.  The results were different, but I like it.

I'm Sorry Card

Today I have a beautiful card that could be used to say sorry to a friend for their loss or just to apologize.  
 This is a layered card.  I cut the white pieces of cardstock and then stacked them with a re-positional adhesive.  I then stamped the image several times overlapping the three pieces.  Enjoy!

Awareness ATC Swap

Today, I participated in an ATC swap with the Awareness theme.  I chose to use the indigo colored ribbon and to bring awareness to bullying. 
I teach students that have been bullied, so I feel like I need to make my friends aware of the bullying that is happening in our schools.  On the back of my ATC, I listed 4 facts about bullying that I found to be very interesting: 
·       Bullying comes in different forms: physical, verbal, relational, sexual, cyber,  and prejudicial.
·       It is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students.
·       90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying
·       54% of students said witnessing physical abuse at home can lead to violence in school.

Blooming Easel

May brings flowers and today I have a project with flowers.  You can't see it, but the flowers have glitter on them which makes them sparkle a little more!
I created this easel, using the Flower Layers stamp from Fun Stampers Journey.  I plan to use this easel to put important dates on, and to display it on my desk.

May Doll Tag

Today I have the next installment in my doll tags I made for my secret friend.  When I think of May, I think of flowers.  This was my theme for the tag.
I wanted to tag to look like a beautiful spring day where I was walking throught a field of flowers.  I love the way it came out.

Bloom Frame Class

Thinking of May flowers and Mother's Day, I created this beautiful frame to give to a special woman.  I used Bo Bunny and Bazzil paper to create the background and the flowers.
I used bling flourish, paper flowers and glitter to create a garden setting.  Using the same line of Bo Bunny paper, I cut out the butterflies and placed them around my frame.  I used some glitter glue to add glitter to the flowers, leaves and butterflies.  When it dried on the butterflies, it curled them a little, but added some movement to them.
You can't see it, but I used a small ribbon to soften up the outside of the frame.  I glued it around the sides to give it a more finished look.
I will be teaching this class tonight and can't wait to see what they think.

The image is from I Brake for Stamps, "Sweet bird".    The flowers are from Wild Orchid.  I colored the bird, flowers on the branch and leaves on the branch with Copics.
Thanks for visiting.

May Calendar

New month, new calendar.  May is the month for Mom, so I went with a pretty and floral motif.  I chose to use the saying, "You mean the world to me" because my mom means the world to me.  She is my best friend and we have been through alot together.  When I created this, I had her in mind.  The Polaroid die cut is popped on foam squares and the top is open, so you can slip a picture in.  I love the way it came out.
