Mother of Pearl

Here is a card made with Lumiere and Saran Wrap. The Mother of Pearl Technique. The image is stamped with Black Stazon on Glossy Paper and watercolored. You can also brayer a light color like Stampin'Up's Blush Blossom Classic ink (water-based ink) over the Lumiere after it dries and it acts a little like a wax resist.


Here is fun way to use an envelope! I was actually asked to show this on KSL's morning show: Studio 5.
They must have been desperate! Well, my husband is employed by Bonneville, and had given out handmade co-workers' gifts. (They assumed I did all the work, but he really did help me make them!) Anyway, I was invited...and with a cold, a little stress because I was loosing my voice the night before, we made it through. My voice just lasted just long enough to be on the show, because it was completely gone later that afternoon. All in all it was a good experience...I definitely have more respect for hosts of Live TV. Here is a link to the directions:

Vicky's Christmas Planner

Christmas in June! I showed my club girls this cute book that Vicky (one of my side-lines) gave me for Christmas. I have been promising them a photo. It's a spiral bound notebook that has a pocket for receipts too! They absoulutely loved it! Santa's beard has liquid aplique on it...when heated it puffs up like a cloud. So fun. She used the Designer Label Punch for the tabs on the side. Thanks Vicky, your the best! Check out her blog at:
