found treasures

I have had this Stampendous stamp for years. I just pulled it out of a box of "to-be-sold" stuff that I had forgotten about. I'm kinda glad that I never got around to selling it because I'm loving it all over again. During my cleaning spree, I also emptied out the boys book bags of stuff from the last week of school. My youngest brought home his untouched pack of washable Crayola markers. Oh my them. They have found a permanent home in my scrap room. Love the vibrant colors that I can't get with my watercolors, plus since they are washable, they blend really well with either a aqua pen or another color marker. Fun stuff!

This card used Taylors weekend Cupcake challenge #24. Instead of the strip of ribbon, I used embroidery floss to hang the birdhouse. The bow is actually just a loop of ribbon with embroidery floss wrapped around for the knot.

supplies used: Stampendous and PSX stamps, Junkitz paper, Crayola washable markers, AC stickers

Oops, heres a card that I forgot to post last week. It is another one for the Rubbernecker challenges. I used the SCS 174 color combo for it. All the paper strips were scraps laying on my desk from another card I made last week (which come to think of it I still have to post here also...later) I heated a piece of white fun foam and stamped the Scotty into it. Fun technique because it leaves an impression in the fun.

supplies used: Rubbernecker and Fontwerks stamps, fun foam

Both cards are so cute! I would have never thought to use kids markers! What a great idea, I think we have a few of those around here! :)

Love those little birdhouses Wendy! Don't you hate when you realize you need to save something you thought you were done with?!?!? but I can see why you'd keep these!!!

the dog on the foam is really cute - I tried that technique a few years ago and have to revisit it! Great design with the strips of DP!
