Today's Limited Supply Challenge

Today's challenge was actually easy for me because it seems I never add much to my cards anyway. So here is my submission for the limited supply challenge:

The dp and the ribbon are both from Target's dollar spot. The stamp set used is SU's double lined doodles.

Hope you like it!

Today's Challenge

This is my card for today's challenge. I have never made a monochromatic card before and had a very difficult time choosing a stamp to use that I thought would look good. I guess that is why it is called a challenge!

Is all your Christmas shopping done? If you are like me, you have not finished what are we doing on the computer?? ;)

Have a great day!

Copper Picture Frames

Here is a couple pictures of the copper picture frames I purchased from Target. They were on sale for $4.00 each, and I sold a set of 3 for $30.00.
The only thing I added to the frame was a piece of cardstock stamped with the Illuminations set from SU. I used copper embossing powder to match the frames. The 3 stamps I used were "Hope", "Joy", and "Cherish".
Sorry for the poor photos, ...hard to get a good picture with the reflection coming off the frame.

Embossed Journal

More items to sell at the craft show...
These books are soft suede journal's that I picked up at Joann's craft store over a year ago. They had a really great sale on them so I grabbed them! I never really knew what to do with them until the other night, I had the idea to try and emboss on them. And it worked out really well. I just stamped with versa mark right onto the suede and then used clear power. With the exception of the black journal, for which I used white powder. There is a little framed area on the front of the journal that can hold a picture, but I have stamped an image for that area as well. You can see it in one or two of the pictures, but the other pictures show too much glare to see that part.
Do you like them?

Hope you are having a great week!

More to come...

Sharing one at a time

Thanks for hanging in there with me! I have so much to share, but not enough time to do it, so I am going to post one project at a time. I have a big craft sale scheduled for Sunday so I have been trying to prepare for that. Wish me well as far as sales go, because we really need a blessing!
The first project I am sharing is a ceramic candle holder.
This snowman is stamped using black stazon and the snowflakes are embossed with silver embossing powder.

This next candle was stamped with versa mark and embossed in red:

Next, I have stamped this also with versa mark and embossed with silver for the snowflake and blue for the word JOY.

o.k.,...I am actually going to post one more thing really quick. I have a friend that just LOVES Snoopy and she and her husband just bought a new home. Would have liked to buy her a nice housewarming gift but to say that we are monetarily challenged right now is an understatement! But, no matter, because I know she is just going to love this little set of "new address" cards that I have made for her. Used a snoopy stamp from Stampabilities(I think)...and the back of the pick up truck from SU's On the Move set.

Now I really must run!
