Magical Bella Mermaid

I had this Bella stamp and sentiment for a while now and I finally made a card with it.
I used some Crystal Lacquer on her tail and the star she is holding and lots of glitter.
I used my new spellbinder nestie dies :0) and viola a very simple and cute card came out of this.

Top Note Die fun :0)

One thing I absolutely LOVE is the top note die from Stampin Up. It is one of the BEST crafting purchases I have done so far.
Here are just some simple quilted cards I made with the top note die, some embossing folders and just some simple embellishments.

And I thought great friends like you were extinct...

It's time again for a sneak peek of the new set of images that will be coming out by Dustin Pike tomorrow Thur.
These images are just too COOL! I hope you can see in the pictures that I made 2 of the dinos into 3D. I used prismacolor pencils and OMS to color and I made the sky with Pebbles Inc. chalk.
The volcano was first colored then I used some of my colored crystal lacquer (red) to give it a wet look. I really hope you like the new images and will go to Dustin's blog where you can go and purchase them.
Also don't forget today is freebie day at his blog and the background you see in my card is the freebie :0)... how cool is that!

I have not made a card in a whole week and I have to say I am having withdrawals...LOL.
This last week was one whirlwind week ...wow.
First our son Patrick had oral surgery and the poor guy is still pretty sore :0( and recovering.
On Thur. we got new windows and boy does it make a BIG difference. We love our new windows for sure . Yesterday I was finally able to get back to card making and I made 2 cards and you can see them below. The paper I used in both cards is a paper pack that I saw and fell absolutely in LOVE with at Michaels. The pack is called citrus stack and the colors are all cheery and happy .
The little fairy is from Stamping Bella and is from the Ketto line.

Do you remember...?

Do you remember the bubble wrap background I made in my other post .... yeah the stuff you see below....LOL...well, I made a card with it today to show you what you can do with it.
I thought it turned out pretty cute.

Bubble wrap background....

The other day I was unpacking some goodies that I bought and some of the things were packed in small bubble wrap. Well , I had an idea ....lets make some bubble wrap background and here we go .....make a sleeve that will fit two fingers.....

load it with ink from your ink pad....

start making a pattern on white paper or any color paper you wish....

and voila you just made your own background paper...
