Angelina fibers cards by Vicki

Vicki recently did an awesome angelina fibers tutorial on her blog. Here are 2 cards she did with our stamps and the angelina we sell.

One of our new doxie stamps, Shelly is used in the top card, with a background of our small dog paw print, and a layer of angelina fibers under the stamped image. Our thinking of you script stamp finishes off this card.

Cup of flowers stamp has been embossed onto the angelina fibers by using an iron. See Vicki's blog for the how to's. The fibers are acid free and made of spun polyester. Soft and luxurious and soo pretty!

Face by Jeanette

An awesome face card by Jeanette of our design team (her blog here) using our woman's face stamp.
Jeanette shared this with me, "I'm attaching a card that I made using a parchment curl frame.  The face stamp is from

my very first order from you.  And, you'll see the lovely shear ribbon.  I stamped the face using Distress Tea Dye and colored with colored pencil.

To make the parchment frame I tore a piece of parchment wrap to size and tore the edge in strips.  Dampen and wrap around a pencil, etc., gently remove so as not to disturb the curl and let dry.  Easy Peasy!!!  The background paper is from a medival theme mat stack."

Gold digger card by Vicki

Vicki of our design team (her blog here) did this fun card using our shovel stamp and some new leaf ribbon that I hope to get on the web page soon.

Fathers Day card by Denise

Here is a great card our design team member Denise (her blog here) did using our new doxie fishing from the boat

Button Bunny

Here is a button bunny card by Denise Clark (her blog is here). She used our bunny stamp and our large happy birthday. I recently got a bunch of buttons, they look so cool on a card!  Thanks Denise!

A few more Easter images

Vicki, one of our designers just sent these Easter images; giving you a headstart for next year! (see Vicki's blog here)
Welcome with our large egg birdhouse is the top card. Our egg clouds are updside down and have become hot air balloons! What a cool idea to turn something upside down! I challenge you to do that with any stamp you have! And see what you come up with! The first walk chick is telling us I'm here! in the last card. Thanks Vicki!
