I snickered to myself this morning when I noticed some glitter on Andy's face. (He's my 20 year old son.) These are the table markers that I made for my Neice's wedding. I used the number solos stamped in black, then I used a paint brush to paint glue all over them, then glittered the numbers. It was fun, but I know that we'll be sparkling for weeks.

One of my favorite things to do is to make a co-ordinating gift wrap to go with a gift. Kristine has a baby shower to go to this afternoon, and she asked me to use my canoe stamp to make a gift bag. . . . sure, my kitchen is a mess, but who am I to refuse her! I used the Back Country Paper packet. Some of the trees are stamped with B1328 Backwoods stamp set ( mostly on the tissue paper) and some are cut out from the Background and Texture paper. The water on the gift bag is also one of the B&T papers from the Back Country Paper packet.
The assignment was to use the Animal Crackers paper packet and new stamps from the Summer Close to My Heart Idea Book and make a standard size card. I'm still loving making my own rainbow pads with the Re-inkers. I stamped the owl with one using Dutch Blue, Clover Meadow, and Sunflower re-inkers I outlined the owl with black; colored the beak sunflower and accented it with liquid glass. I was able to curve "woohoo" on the block to have it curve around the circle. I also used black mini-brads for the eyes. I'm loving my new piercing tool that comes with it's own little matt. I need to make 19 of these cards for an exchange that I'm doing. . . I'm giong to have a hard time mailing these off, because I love them so much.
