Perfect Pearls Class

My Perfect Pearl Class at Stampers Corner was fabulous! The ladies were wonderful. It was nice to see  old friends and I made a few new ones. Thanks for helping make such a fun day.
Here are a few of the cards they made today.

This card has the hand dyed ribbon I posted a few days ago. 

These two cards are from the "Twigs" from Little Yellow Bicycle. 

Stamps used for these cards are from Hero Arts

Distress Stain!

Hi bloggers! I'm getting ready for my class this weekend at Stampers Corner and wanted to share how wonderful Tim's new Distress Stains are. The effect is amazing as you can see, you get a beautiful variegated look. With the ribbons below, instead of spraying them with water I used Perfect Pearl Mist to get an iridescent effect. The Distress Stains are very easy to use just press the dabber on the surface you want to paint and gently squeeze the bottle to create the flow of ink. Lift up to stop the flow when done. 
Distress Stains comes in 12 colors, love them all.

My husband Del and I went to Calistoga for a few day to get recharged. It was a little rainy, a little snowy, and a little sunny. The architecture we saw was so beautiful and spring seem to be in full bloom. Here are my favorite photos of the weekend. Getting away was so inspiring. 

Life is full of inspiration!

Idea-ology samples for Tim Holtz @ CHA

Just a few samples I made for CHA in the Idea-ology booth.

Take Time for ART because it's so important to feed the creative soul.

My Old Jalopy is from a new Sizzix Bigz Die. I hand cut some wood panel from a stamped tag to make it look like an old woody.

For this card I used the new Kraft Glassine pockets and papers. Try coloring them with alcohol ink for the old time vintage look of the flower. Love the Fanciful buttons too.

This card is using some of the new Pen Nibs, Fractured Doll and Regal Adornments.
You're really going to love them all!

Thanks for stopping by. . .
