Hello everybody!!! I went to another stamp class at Connie's. She is the nicest person. We made a card holder along with 6 cards to go in it.

Here's the outside

Here's the inside!

Here's a baby card!
Thoughts of You card
Thank You card
Celebrate card
Friendship card
Just Because card
I bought this fabric kit at the Int'l Quilt show in Houston at the Art Glitter Booth. I figured it was time for me to actually try to make this. They turned out really pretty, but then again, I like anything that's glittered!!!
These are some Giftcard Holders that I made using Hanna stamps! I got the idea by watching Dawn's Stamping Thoughts video blogs! You can also watch her on YouTube. She is so creative!!! I LOVE watching her blogs!!!!
When you open it, it holds a Giftcard or a Credit Card
I used crystals for her earring and paper pieced the oufits, shoes & purses with glitter paper.
I used the technique that Connie taught us tonight to hold the giftcards shut and used Rhinestone flowers for decoration.
Well, that's it for now. Have a great day!!!!

Here is a Bella card I made for a swap. I used a piece of transparency for the outside of the card and I melted clear shrink plastic and then stuck a rubber stamp on it for the impression (for the charm). The lettering is done with the "Lemonade" font using the Quickutz Revolution. Here is the inside of the card.
Here's the 2nd card I made for the swap using the same technique.
Here is the inside of the card.
Here is one I made for my niece. The stamped image is a Bella Stamp. It is called I-Podabella!

My daughter is having her birthday this month and so is her hubby. I'm posting this pics now, so I don't forget to do it later. Plus both of them should be in the field working, so they may not see this until after they get back. (Hopefully they'll get the actual cards before seeing this post).

Here's the inside. Yet another pop-up card.
Here is a birthday card for my daughter from her dog. This is using the Paper Pups cartridge.

I also made my daughter a little book.

This is for a card swap. It uses Bella stamps. Here's the inside. I used clear shrinky dinks for the little embellishment.
