The background paper is from the My Mind's Eye Bohemia collection. I used markers to ink up the stamp so the bird could be blue.
I am keeping the inside blank for now... you never know when you need a sympathy or thinking of you card on a moments notice.
Here is a side view of the auction prizes.
I was having fun and forgot to get pics until later in the day!
Paper glaze is a clear liquid that adds a glossy or wet look to stamped images. I like to use it on cupcakes to give the frosting a "gooey" look. It works perfectly on this card to make the rain look real. I also used the standard rectangle Nestabilities to cut the scallop.
Inside verse reads:
It's better to find at rainbows end... not a pot of gold, but a really good friend!!
You can see it a little better in this picture. Previously I had posted a UTube link that showed the flocking technique. Here it is again if you missed it:
The best part about these clipboards is that the metal clip is not permanently attached, you can easily remove it to decorate the chipboard and then put it back on.
I put Post-It Notes on 2 of the clipboards, the smaller one holds the mini Post-Its perfectly.
If you need just a "little something" to give your kid's teachers, coworkers, friends, etc. then these small tins are perfect. I sold out of the mini tins and the nugget style tins at Christmas but they are back in stock now for Valentine's Day.
I filled mine with pink and red peanut M&M's, but you could use any kind of cute candy. Hershey Kisses, red cinnamon hearts, conversation hearts, or anything you can think of.
Since it says "From the desk of" on the top and bottom, I just snipped off the words on the bottom. Save this piece because you can still use it if you wanted too.
With the small letter set (also a cool accessory) I added my name.
I used paper from the Basic Grey line called Urban Prarie.
Not my best work, but sometimes you just need something silly!
This kit includes a beautiful assortment of 8 patterned cards (pre-scored too), self adhesive chipboard, precision die cuts, 2 toned rub-ons, and 8 matching envelopes.
After 2 years and 2 months of being in business I finally have an OPEN sign in the window. Sometimes I can be a bit slow to get around to things!
An easy way to make a tag like that is to use a square punch. It will cut the end off perfectly!
If your wondering about the balloon, just stamp it on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out. You can place it right over the original balloon and it will match your back ground paper. Its hard to see in the photo but I put some small jewels on the left hand side.
The centers of the flowers are dew droplets, a small round stone with a flat back. Perfect for adding to cards.

This is a 5x5 sized card that I made using the Penny Black clear stamps and Pebbles Inc. paper. I cut the scalloped rectangle out with the long rectangle set of Nestabilities.
