newest obsession

 Loving die inlays with cardstock and alcohol inked backgrounds using Tim Holtz Alcohol ink

There is something strangely relaxing about assembling the die cut pieces into beautiful cards. Here's another rose background card.

Just cardstock and vellum

 Created this beauty by cutting and gluing multiple layers of white cardstock using a rose background die from #Wplus9 and embellishing with more roses cut from silver cardstock and white vellum.

Day 3 Homework

Doing more homework for #CrushingOnCardstock card class and loving every minute of it. Once again took elements from multiple days to use on one card.
Then, not wanting to waste perfectly good cardstock, I made another card with the cut out circles.

Homework late...again!

Very behind in my homework for #onlinecardclasses #crushingoncardstock cardmaking class.

I decided to combine homework for Day 2 and Day 3 in one card. This card combines stamping, dry embossing and inlay die cuts using cardstock. While it took me ALL day to do it, I am pleased with how this turned out.  There is no sentiment as I will wait to see what occasion it goes to its forever home. 

The next one won't take as long- I hope!

New add:

Saved my die cut pieces from this beauty and created another. This one has lots of texture and how dynamic cardstock is.

#Crushingoncardstock Class

 Taking an on line card class Crushing on Cardstock from

Day One homework was to create a card with cardstock strips forming them into a chevron pattern or checkerboard. I quickly learned that precision in measurement is the key to a successful pattern. Mine was out the slightest bit which made me crazy so I freestyled the chevron so you could not tell. Loving this little card.

Birch Beauties

Playing again with my alcohol inks (AI) and markers on white ceramic tiles- what a blast!
My plan was to create a landscape scene but I did not like the way the colours mixed and where they settled so I was going to douse it with alcohol and start over. Something stopped me. I thought what the heck, play a little more add some tree and then see if it is more palatable. The beauty of AI on tiles is that you can clean with isopropyl alcohol and start over!
Well this is what happened and I love it!
