Here is a card that I made for a co-worker's 50th birthday. This is the first time I have inked up this gorgeous non-SU stamp. I actually got it after our first trip to Jamaica and I wanted a peacock stamp to scrapbook some photos of peacocks on our resort.

I stamped the image on watercolour paper in black stazon and water coloured it with SU Stampin' Write Markers and aqua painters. Paper: Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point, Ink: Early Espresso, Accessories: Curly Label Punch, Hodge Podge hardware, linen thread, vanilla smooch spray, number stickers, Stamp Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Birthday Card for my brother

This is a birthday card that I'll be sending to my brother in the next day or two. Hopefully it will get there on time. I used the bouncing brayer technique. This is actually a CASE of this card from Dawn Olchefske's blog. I changed up the colours to use a cool colour combo from the new colour coach. This card uses the Extreme Guitar, Extreme Elements, All Holidays, and Rough Edges Alphabet (retired) stamp sets, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, and Cajun Craze (new) ink and cardstock, glossy cardstock, magnetic movers and shapers star punch window (you could use the star punch, I just don't own it) and fire circle rhinestone brad. I love it!

My Digital Studio

Hey there! As usual, I haven't been posting to my blog regularly. Even once a month seems to be a challenge for me. The reason... well, I guess I'm just a busy gal. One of the things I've been doing lately is trying to get caught up on my scrapbooking. Not too long ago, I was 3 years behind. At the end of 2009, I was working on my 2006 photos! Now, thanks in part to My Digital Studio, Stampin' Up!s digital scrapbooking software, I am just about finished 2008! Here are a few layouts that I made with MDS.
