2nd card

                                                                                            I just had to use my new sewing machine to sew on paper!  I stamped these sweet bird images onto squares of coordinating papers.  I first placed them all diagonally across the strip of paper but actually needed another quarter of an inch to have them evenly spaced.  So, I turned the lead image into a square and added the tiny tag.    (These images are also B-Line Designs  -  available at                                                             

Card Order

I used to sell my greeting cards at a very nice shop until the lady, sadly, went out of business and moved on to OKCity.  One of my regular buyers has contacted my sil and requested more cards.  She said she had eeked out her few remaining cards and was now needing more.  So, I have spent a few days working up some cards for her. 

I love this rubberstamp from B-Line Designs (owner:  Beverly Seymour of Mustang, OK....stamps can be purchased at: and stamped it with brown ink onto some "glitter mist paper"....a technique Tim Holtz uses often and one that has been in the Technique Junkie newsletter.   Swipe some
distress inkpads (Tim Holtz) onto a craft sheet and then mist with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and Distress ink refills in a mister (or use one of the already mixed products on the market).
Lay paper on craft sheet and move around; lift and look at paper.
You might want to lay on another area and repeat or even add more mist until you get the desired look you want.  Lay aside to dry.  I love doing several (actually dozens!) of sheets in one setting.  These are great to use for background papers and really add dimension when layering.  Rubberstamping on these papers always yields spectacular results.
