Hidden Sliders for UStampwithDawnandFriends

Now that my Cool Moves cards have posted to UStampwithDawnandFriends, I can share my project. I had so much fun creating these hidden slider cards. They are definitely going to be my go-to cards for fun birthdays.

These cards combine Furry Folk and Patterned Party stamp sets along with the new MDS digital download Walk in the Park.

Pals Birthday Card for a Country Gal

This week's challenge at Paper Pal's Art is a sketch by one of my favorite designers, Margaret Moody. This week is my sister's birthday and I wanted to make her a card befitting her style. I combined the SU Countryside stamps with Webster's Pages Marketplace paper and used Margaret's amazing sketch. A little bit of this and that for this card.

Stamps - Countryside
Ink - Stazon Black, cherry cobbler, cajun craze, more mustard, old olive, tempting turquoise, marina mist, baja breeze, not quite navy, soft suede, pear pizzazz, wild wasabi
Paper - Webster's Pages Marketplace, cherry cobbler, marina mist very vanilla card stock.
Accessories - Twine, dimensionals

What I've Been Up To

Even though I haven't been posting as often as I usually do, I have been VERY busy with the kids schedules, school auction and UStampwithDawnandFriends. Here is one of the projects I am in the midst of producing. We are creating 450 of these invitations for our school auction. No, they really don't say blah, blah blah, this was my original prototype. We are cranking these out of the Big Shot and have completed  400. I just have 50 more to do. The flower on the bottom of the page and the "fiesta" accent were created with MDS. I am now a devotee of My Digital Studio.

I am also in the process of creating 3 projects for UStampwithDawnandFriends. The next section is "Cool Moves". Each project will contain cards that have a moving element - there will be over 40 projects, complete with pdf tutorials, included. To join this amazing site click on the blinkie below.

After next week, I should be back to stamping on a regular schedule - I can't wait!

Coloring Ribbon with Stampin' Write Markers

Many times I need ribbon to match my projects and I may not have it on hand, or the ribbon may not be available in the color I want. I use this technique to color ribbons when I don't have a re-inker available. Give it a try! - and make sure you throw your pen down when finished:)
