This card was created by stamping the focal image in Noir ink and then coloring the holly with a tombow marker and using the blender pen to make the marks nice and smooth. I use glossy cardstock for this as it is a bit more forgiving.
Once this was done I then took a Glaze pen and outlined the veins in the leaves and set it aside
I punched the scalloped circle out and using our white gel pen i marked each scallop in the middles.
I also stamped the Christmas sentiment in white ink and then embossed with transcendence powder to make it pop and mounted on the green cardstock to match the focal image.
The background was achieved with the Deco Designs frond stamped with Burnt umber. A softer
appearance for the background can be achieved by stamping off first
Once I was ready to mount I took a hydra sponge and tapped into my burnt umber and then lightly tapped my focal circle to age it a bit. It wound up a bit darker than I wanted but it still looks good.
All items from The Angel Company. If you are interested in further scans or step by step instructions or product please let me know and I will be glad to help.

This card was made with Holly Swirls...I used the flourish background to ink it up with Noir Ink and then used the green and red glaze pens to enhance the background. I then stamped the Merry Christmas on the Gloss cardstock and inked the stamp with Versamagic Touch of pesto..
The red and green cardstock is from the DCWV stack.
All of the items used in this project are all available from The Angel Company...contact me if you are interested in any of these items.

I am going to become a big fan of this paper. The picture just doesn't do this little number justice. I just couldn't get my light right. The background is brown and layered with Willoby dot and the green DP.. Then using my gloss stock I stamped the Love and Laughter Tree and sentiments using Versa Magic Hint of Pesto and Jumbo Java. I also tore the green cardstock and then inked with jumbo java. I also inked the edge of the gloss cardstock with the ink pads. Here I made sure to smudge it a bit. Keep a lookout I have another card like this going to post this week!

Above is a creation I did with leftover parts of the woodrow kit. I used a transparency, cut down to 4X4 and then using New Canvas Palette Ink I stamped the "Just for You" stamp from the level A set. The inside was created using a pocket from the kit and a tag that was also from the kit. The stamp in the middle is from Deco Designs.
I stamped the middle image in Burnt Umber. By the way the pocket will hold a gift card perfectly! Want to get this kit? Just email me and I will be happy to place an order for you. When you order this kit through me you will recieve a gift with purchase stamp.
Hey! Guess what??! Woodrow is not JUST a scrapbook kit. Did you know that if you only wanted to create 1 mini scrapbook you can still get use out of your kit by using the leftover pages as cards.
You can...especially if you use transparency for the fronts of your cards. Below is a sample that I did with one of the page inserts. I used only items from the kit with the exception of the transparency, the stamp, and the ribbon. BUT this month we have a special for this kit...so you would be able to get the ribbon in your kit for an awsome price of 49.95. Below's picture shows what is included in the kit as well as the additional embellishments and phrases.

Now for the little something I made for her. The round disc is a mirror on the other side. I picked this up from a store that was discontinuing it. This is made by PSX and is raw porcelin. Very interesting medium to work from. I liked it. Only had two problems. DONT USE BLAIR ON THIS! The pencil ran on the porceline when I added the blair fixative. I had a small mess trying to save this puppy. Also I discovered that wax colorant that gives the shimmer clumps up just a little bit in this medium. All in all I like it
Noir Pallette Ink
Wax Metallic Pigments
Blair Fixative (DONT USE THIS)
Hope you like these. I think she will

pieces from the pockets and pieces kit that The Angel Company has. The pieces are white and I wanted a brown for my base so I used one of the peices as a template.
I cut out the Brown Bazzill and then using my score pal I scored each fold so that it would lay down nicely. Inside the purse I put in a matching 3 X 3 post it note and then using the same design I stamped the flowers on the inside.

This is an album we did with Angelee paper, it is very old world with a nice palet of lavendar, green and a tan color. I think this is ALMOST my favorite.

This is our car:
After we left Springfield on Sunday we decided that we would go t0 Branson Missouri. Branson is a place John and I have traveled to many times. But this time we decided we would take the scenic railway tour. This tour is special to me because the train goes through a now extinct town where my family lived in the early 1900's and also my family helped build the tunnels on this railway that we went on. So below is a picture that was taken right as we left branson. The train was going slow enough that it isn't blurry.
My husband was practising his "I can't believe you are going to take my picture! stare." obviously I didn't get the point cause I snapped 3 of them tee hee hee.
Here is a simple note card I made with the victorian lady from The Angel Company. I used the Pearlescent Crimson from Brilliance and Faiths transcendance Embossing powder. The bow is attached to the picture hanger.
The card is tan speckled and is just gorgeous in real life. My camera isn't in the mood to take good pictures tonight! LOL

this is accomplished by taking a white piece of cardstock, an "aging" ink and an image that lends to being split up. Ink your individual pieces and reassemble. Very simple and adds an awsome bit of interest.
Stamp is from heartitude and spring dream

On a personal Note:
Today was a beautiful day here in the area. It was made even more special by the fact that we have found a permenant home for Stella, A rescue Pug at Pug Rescue of NWA. Stella has pretty severe siezures and is known to have as many as two a day. Not only that but she is almost completely blind and has a stress issue that seems to make the siezures worse. But today, we have found her a forever family and come next Friday I get the very distinct pleasure to tell Stella that she is going to a forever home to be loved and coddled the rest of her life.
If you are looking for a pug or would like to help us out go to http://www.echoesbleeding.com/pug2/index.html and check our organization out. Next weekend we are having our Pug Playday at the Dog Party USA facility outside of Springdale. All pugs are welcome!

This weekend has also been spent with Paper Wings as we have had an online "Escape". I have been working on the stamped prize packages for the winners of bingo and hope to have them done tomorrow.
I am now taking signups for Online Hostess groups. This would be a commitment of 3 months. During the three month time frame you would purchase 33.00 worth of product by the 15th of each month. For one month of the 3 months you will recieve the benefits as if you had hosted a funshop. This would include level A hostess set and a 1/2 off item. If the hostess group purchases enough for additional hostess sets then those would be provided to you as well. Doesn't it sound like fun?
If you are interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I have been a scrapbooker mostly since 2000 and changed over to rubberstamps when I started making my own cards in 2001. I love intricate designs and it is sometimes intimidating to others, but I like my "cutwork" cards that I make at Christmas.
I just recently joined up with The Angel company and am excited to get my business going this year!
