Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

Celebrating You Photo Tutorial

Take your 12" by 12" All Geared Up, designer paper  and take the Dylusion's White Linen and add some drops of it over the page. Then add the burlap ribbon.


Take the Black Soot and sponge the edges of the DP.


Take the chipboard dress form and lay it on your craft mat, then sponge it with Silver and Moss Green Stamp paint.

Stamp the image with the glue pad and then heat emboss it with silver embossing powder. This is very helpful when you want to use watercolors to paint with. It will keep your color in each area, instead of it running into other areas. Take a paint brush, and add water the each area. Then add take your brush and touch it to the pencils, and then to the image. It will immediately fill the area with color because of the water you added first.



Cut the gears in white CS then lay them on your craft mat and sponge them randomly with Distress inks.Peacock Feathers,  Squeezed Lemonade, and Fired Brick. Next spray Lemon Zest, Glimmer mist on them, and a few random White Linen, paint drops

Take your stylus and turn the flowers over and push down on the Tips of the gears. Then turn them back over to the front and press down with your stylus in a circular motion in the center. Add one small and one large gears together to make a flower.



Place all of your elements on your page without gluing them, to help you decide how you like them. Like I did in this photo.

When you are done and like the way things are arranged glue everything down, and you are done.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
