Brayer Workshop

I thought I'd share the cards I made at Michelle's workshop in Savannah.  It was much fun and I really enjoyed it.  This is the first one we did.  Used a reverse mask to make the mountain...and look at the reflection...pretty cool.
I didn't think I'd like this one, but I do.  We used "Nature Silhouettes" stamp set from Stampin'Up! and "Elements of Style."  We also used Elements of Style on the first one.
This was the last one.  We used Elements of Style stamp set on this one, too.  A white pen was used to highlight the bird and flowers.  I'm a big Michelle Zindorf fan.  Her cards are very unique and uncomplicated.  A lot of the cards I see on blogs are beautiful, but have so many layers, embellishments that I can't seem to keep up.  The flowers that are being made and used on cards are very nice, but I guess they are really practical for mailing.  The cards I make trying to keep up look busy and messy sometimes.  Anyway, I digress.  Hope you are having a great day and I wish you happy card making.

Post-it note & Pen

Thought I'd share this little post-it note folder that I made.  I found this template somewhere and can't remember where.  I need a better pen, but haven't really looked.  The stamp is an older stamp set from PaperTrey Ink:  "Autumn Abundance."  I have used these flowers quite a bit.  I colored the image with copics.
And that's the directions.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked it on the inside and then embossed with Distressed Ink.  I think it looks nice.  I've been following Jennifer McGuire's "Holiday Thinking Inking" classes on Two Peas in a Bucket and she did the same technique using acrylic paint.

Travel Book
I love the word books. I used s.e.i "Black Orchid" papers and some of the matching embellishments. After a road trip this summer, this book will be filled with memories. I had so much fun working on this. I think the papers inspired me. I just love them.
