Why do I have this title?? Well I am feeling so many emotions right now. Today is the final day of my Inspiration class with Jennifer. It was a fun, informative and learning experience. So now that its over...I am feeling kind of sad but happy at the same time. Seeing my creation with all the techniques on the canvas is giving me a smile. Thanks Jennifer and the guests for this creative journey.
Here is what I created and its going to go on my wall. I chose to write smile as this is what my first expression was:)
Hope you enjoy seeing it. I truly enjoy creating it.  Pls. click on the photo for a better view. I will be posting a few close ups tomorrow as the weather didn't give me company today:)
Have a nice weekend.

I made this card using the technique called Trap Embossed Resist. I used it a few times but did not know what it is called. Now, thanks to Jennifer I have a name:)
I am submitting this for the challenge at Wee Memories: No Pattern Paper
Simon Says Stamp blog: Use of Dies and Punches.

Thanks for peeking in:)

Best wishes

Another card I made for the Online Inspiration class with Jennifer. I used distress inks and dry embossing. I made this Accordion flower myself, which was fun and love the result. I really like using these colors together. This card is for the challenge at Wee Memories blog: NO Pattern Paper and Simon says Stamp blog - use of Dies and punches
To finish some gems here and there and a PTI sentiment:)

Just Saying Hello

As part of my Online Inspiration class with Jennifer, I made this card using two of the techniques. Coloring the embossing folder before embossing and also embossing on Acetate. Its all about dry embossing and I have to say that I just love the effect. I used the lovely sketch from Lily Pad blog. This is my submission at Wee Memories Blog  as the challenge is NO pattern paper and Simon says Stamp blog - use of dies or punches

I used Hero Arts Soft Pool Shadow ink on the Birds and Swirls Embossing folder. The Butterflies are cut with a MS Punch. I colored the butterflies using broken china, pine needle, faded jeans, crushed olive and peeled paint distress inks. Love the effect of embossed Acetate and all the dimension. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

 Hope you like what I created. It was so much fun and it looks just amazing in real.

Before I leave, I want you all to know about Vicky's amazing giveaway of 25$ for Simon says Stamp shop. Be sure to pop by her blog to see her amazing cards and videos.

Resist again

Onto the second card using the paint resist technique this time.
Absolutely love the effect of the pearl paint. I really like this technique a lot. Looks beautiful in real. My entry at Lily Pad Blog.

I can't resist the Resist

Well that's true!! Its simply impossible for me to resist the resist. So as part of my very first cardmaking class (Inspiration Showcase by Jennifer Mcguire) I made these 3 cards today...the 4th. one is not yet finished. The pictures doesn't do justice to my cards:(

I am submitting this for the challenge at Lily pad blog.

Traditional Resist: I did not have the glossy paper. so I tried on Glossy mat paper and am rather pleased with the result.Its such a nice ghostly image:)

Thanks for dropping by and leaving some love.

 Now my 2nd. card is well cute and adorable. I used two new sets (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum and Making frosty friends)Check out all the textures, paper-piecing, coloring, embossing, stitching and glossy accents. Love birds on the train ride thru the snow:)
