Busy, Busy, Busy!!!

Yep.  I wanted to obligate myself to swaps so I would have to create pretty regularly and surprise that's just what happened... LOL...  three of the four cards I'm posting today were made in Feb. and all use techniques from Technique Junkies.  So here we go...

Card #1 was made for a swapping buddy and was simply a RAK.  It uses the banner technique from TJ (a great way to use up scraps) The papers are all scraps from K & Company:
Here's card #2, made as a "card of the month" for Stamping Queens uses the block fill technique and it was great fun.  The main stamp is from I Brake for Stamps colored with watercolor pencils and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado
Card #3 was also made for Stamping Queens.  The swap theme was card parts and scraps.  Hey I'm thrilled to participate in anything that forces me to use even a fraction of my scraps and again the technique is from TJ and like cards 1 and 2, this one is also from the latest TJ newsletter.  Lots of great techniques in these newsletters.  Card 3 was a bit hard to create, as my fingers are not as nimble as they used to be, so it was pretty funny to watch me try to make these paper rolls.  I do love how it turned out though, and more scraps got used... Yippee.  Here it is:
The sentiment is a clear stamp from Fiskar's stamped on a Spellbinder die cut. The ribbon is from Stamping Up.
Ok, so I'm tired and it's just about time for Biggest Loser so I will have to save card #4 for tomorrow.  I'm still creating also, working on 3 ATCs for a swap at Alpha Stamps. So more to come.  Thanks for stopping by...


  1. Your cards are lovely. They all turned out so well. The banner technique is one of my favourites. Yes indeed the rolled paper is tricky. You did a bang up job with it. TFS.

  2. all are lovely but the rolled paper piece is really impressive! nice work. xo

  3. GF, you have been busy! These three cards are fabulous! How cool is that rolled paper technique! I would be all fingers and mess it up! Enjoy the weekend!

  4. wonderful cards! I especially like the rolled paper.

  5. love the one with the paper rolls, I'll have to try it!

  6. Wonderful cards! Very interesting and very cool technique with the paper rolls. My fingers aren't as nimble as they used to be, either. I love the banners and, yes, a great way to use up scraps!
