Cleaning Daubers...

I tried to clean my daubers by spraying with oxiclean...if they had been recent or light colored, they came clean...washed them in a tide mesh bag after spraying each one and letting them sit for awhile...
 now I will relabel...all of them with newer colors...if you do this more often than I did, they might come cleaner...mine have been sitting around a lllllooonnnnggg time...

 darker ones...very little improvement...but lighter...big difference...

toilet paper roll pillow box

We did this at Open House...I found it on pinterst...you take a TP roll and flatten it a little bit...if you take a 6 1/4 x 4 piece of DSP...or can be 6 1/2...you can cover the TP and use it for a small gift...pillow top ...a tag and ribbon can be added....just showed the basics for this ...use sticky tape to adhere....can also use tombow multi adhesive...


 put sticky tape inside one end...enclose small gift or monetary gift and seal the other side...
 can also use crimper on ends after sealing....

 Used the fancy fan folder....and lacy and lovely...LLLLLOOOOVVVEEE that set
The small die cut you have to put face down in the middle of the stamp and then use a piece of paper to denter that circle...love the look
 then pierce and put the brad in..yep, retired also...but weren't they great brads!!!

Photopolymer card from Open House

This is another one of the Open House cards from Saturday...we could have skipped the scallop because it wasn't really needed...some did, some did not...
 
Used the primrose paper with the retired paper....used the hexagon folder on a separate sheet of whisper white....

 Used the photopolymer stamps for the banner...used a marker and the blue letters from the set...and yes, I corrected the letters to be even on the grid on the.clear block..

the stamp set was on wooden blocks but had placed all of them close to the edge of the blocks so the cake and the pinwheel were easy to line up...don't believe anyone had a problem with them...
We used the primrose and midnight muse marker on the pinwheel stamp

Stencil look...lattice die...

I have seen this done several times but could not figure how they did it...
 you need to put both parts together with temporary adhesive and then sponge the card....otherwise you will get smudges on the edges....
this is the final result when you do that......I used daffodil and razzleberry daubers...aimed the daffodil color toward the center of each of the petals...then did the razzleberry....below is the end result for one of my FromOurHearts ministry cards...love the look.....

Open House was Saturday....

I had my Open  House on Saturday.(10-1)....11 attended....7 did not make it....thought that was great due to the flood of nonstop rain for the entire day....what a mess....this is one time I really wished the craft house was connected to my residence....If you attended one class during the calendar year , you got a door prize...everyone that attended was from a class...no newbies....can always hope...lol.....the brown wrapped door prize was wrapped in brown paper and it included more than one thing...we made three cards and I showed them a quick thing I found on pinterest....will show you what we did during the week...
next year...two cards...too much planned......big surprise!!
 Diane is hidden...the wonderful lady in blue is Carrie, then Deb...Carol is walking ...then Evelyn and Peggy....everyone took turns to finish the free cards...
 Wonderful punch...lucked out and had a wonderful friend that picked up the rest of punch and took it to church on Sunday (I was gone)...have tried tea but always end up throwing it out so now I do punch....
 these are my pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese icing....so yummy....
 BBQ meatballs......
corn beef with ham and sauerkraut balls...so good...and stuffed mushrooms with cream and pecans....I saved a few before everyone got to them so Rick would have a few...and a couple for me....he he...very very wet soggy day but with great company who notices....everyone got a look at the new catty....love love love the way it is put together this year...so easy to read and find things quickly!!!!!!

Poppies three tier card

Am involved in a monthly one to one swap...and there is usually a theme...this month is was the three tiered...here is my card...the photo doesn't do it justice...I think I dream of gumball green and midnight muse....guess I don't have too much of a life...lol (other than you Rick...big smile!!)
 HELP>>>>>I NEED SOME PHOTO CLASSES....lol...this card was embossed with versamark and black embossing powder and then the gumball was added with the marker and the blues with a blender pen...midnight muse....the grass is sponged with gumball ...
 some of the cloud embossing folder shows up here...but is pretty in person...
 butterflies were attached with glue dots...after I finished it, I wished I had used the itty bitty only and used two of them...guess I could case my own card...I have done it before...lol
