Mojo Monday 395

Hi There!

I just picked up my supplies of the new Heartfelt Creations Peackock Paisley line!!!!  Had to play with it, so I used the papers and stamp to make this week's challenge card. 
If you want to play along, the Mojo Monday sketch is here:
 So here's my card!  Looking forward to playing with these papers and stamps more!

Fun-Raiser cards!

Hi all!

I belong to the Shetland Sheepdog Fanciers Club here in Edmonton, Alberta.  We are a group of people who LOVE our shelties!  We have a few breeders and a quite a few show dogs.  We also have a few of us (me included) that have companion animals (Do not compete for points and ribbons).  We are doing some fundraising for dog show events that we are hosting in the next year and I thought I'd share my cardmaking skills and supplies.  SO last Saturday I had 5 ladies take me up on my offer to make 5 cards for $10.  All funds going to my club. 

I supplied all paper, ink, stamps and adhesives.  Spent a couple evenings pre-cutting everything so they just had to stamp, colour and stick it all together.  These cards were geared to new stampers so a couple ladies whipped through the kits in record time :)  Those with not so much experience took about 1.5 hours to do the 5 cards.  Lots of laughing and stories which I enjoy at any of these events and some funds raised for my club.  One lady honoured me by purchasing quite a few cards I had already made from my stash for $5 each!  I meant to take pics of the fun but completely forgot!  Next get together for sure!  Hugs to all who came!

Alice Keys Page


Here is another page from my Alice Altered Book:

Since the previous page had the keyhole cut out, I continued the theme on this spread...
 I decoupaged various postage & vintage papers and stickers.  Then I used acrylic paints to put down the metallics, gold, silver and copper. 
I added a Prima Alpha Card under the keyhole.  I used Green Silks paint around the edge and on the card.

  The key in the top right is a laser chipboard die cut from Magenta painted gold.  the key paperclips are from Prima.  I used more images from the Tweety Jill stamp sets and StazOn inks.  The quote is from Stampers Anonymous.

Been out with a cold/flu for quite a while!
This current strain comes and goes for a while and hits hard, so watch out and REST if you get it!

Organising my photos and found some projects I have never shown you!
Last year at this time I bought a couple fine detailed dies from Tattered Lace.  I immediately started to play with them but ran into trouble getting the center of the design to cut out.  (I later discovered that my Cuttlebug had indeed died).
I used black adhesive backed velvet paper and it just seemed like a sin to throw away all those pretty swirls and bits.

I stuck all the little bits randomly on a white piece of paper and trimmed it up to make a border.  Then put it aside for a future project.  In September I decided to use it to make a birthday card for a girlfriend.  I sprayed it with mist to make the white paper a greeny-gold and then placed it on this piece of Magenta vellum, dark green cardstock then onto the medium folded card. 
She liked it!

Time Flies!
