Swap Card

I made this card for a blue and brown swap I joined at TAC444. I was really excited about this card because everything but the sentiment comes from one stamp set. I even used Baby Blue Opaque Stazon (which I don't think I have used since I bought it a year ago). Anyway, this card was a CASE from the new Take Ten magazine. I just used my own stamps. I know this was cheating but I just fell in love with this card. I wish I could remember the gals name....she had a whole article close to the back if that helps anyone. It showed how to use white pigment ink and color over with colored pencils once it was dry. Great article! As soon as I get over to my mom's I will update with the name of the person and article.

Check out my new laptop skin

OMG!!! I am too excited!!! Tell me that is not THE cutest thing you have ever seen?
I was playing around in my favorite store on earth - EBAY- and I found a customizable laptop skin. I figured since I usually beat the heck out of my laptop, it was a good purchase. My mom doesn't agree. LOL!!! But then again, she knows I'm nuts! Dang, I love anything monkey.

Juliette Squares

So I was playing around and looking for something to do when I found this challenge on SCS. I thought it would be easy. It probably is...but not for me.

I must have torn this card apart 3 times before I ended up with this. The card is a 4 1/4 inch square. The individual squares are 1 inch matted with a 1 1/8 inch square. The middle square is 2 1/8 matted with a 2 1/4 square. I used Marvy Flower Punches and stickles for the centers. The Be Mine sentiment is popped up with a pop dot. The decorated square is embossed with clear EP.

I am not sure how I feel about this card yet. It just looks like it needs something. I don't know. Maybe it will grow on me. LOL!!!

Supplies used:

TAC Juliette SWIC and Cardstock
TAC Forever Stamp Set
Palette Burnt Umber, Bordeaux
Crystal Stickles
Marvy Punches
