Weekend Projects

This past weekend I had some free time and I was able to just have some fun stamping. I thought I would share some of the projects that I worked on.This is a card that I made for a friend of my oldest DS. His friend was celebrating his 13th BDay! Sometime I think it can be kind of hard to come up with ideas for teenage boys. But I was really happy with how this card turned out, although it doesn't look anything like the vision I had when I started out! LOL! Does that ever happen to any of you?

CS is all SU-Real Red, Basic Black & Glossy White
Ink is all SU-Real Red (refill), Basic Black (refill), Black StazOn, Silver Encore!
Other-Silver EP (SU), Silver Metallic Pen, Crystal Effects (SU), Black Glitter Glue, Black Circle Clip, Skull Button, Black Ribbon (from my stash)

Technique-Rolling Stones (this was done on the BG paper)

I made this for my youngest DS. He loves to play Tic-Tac-Toe and this just the right size for when we are on the go! I have had this little tin for some time now but I just wasn't ever sure how I wanted to alter it. I can't remember for sure where I got it-Kmart-maybe? But I do remember it had sour cherry candy in it!
CS is all SU-Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black
Stamp-Mickey Mouse & the little mouse shapes--Good ?--LOL! I have had them for so long that all of the company info is gone from the block!! Sorry!!

My 1st Butterfly Card with Holly House Originals Medallions~My 2nd Butterfly Card and also with a close up~Yes! These do take a while to do!! But WOW I LOVE the end result!! Until this weekend I had never tried any of the medallion type of stamps but now I think this one is a must have!! I have to thank my wonderful friend Delores!! She stopped by on Friday and said she had just bought 2 new medallion stamps but it was going to be a little while before she would have some time to play around with them and she thought maybe I would like to try them out!! New Rubber--who would past up a chance for that!! Plus she had copies of the instruction sheets! So far I have these two done and I am working on a 3rd one with a black and orange butterfly which I will post when I'm done.

It was so nice and refreshing to have a weekend with some stamping time!! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are all having a Great start to your week!!



  1. Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. Those butterflies are incredible...the tic tac toe is cute too, but the butterflies steal the show!

  2. Oh my gosh! You were a busy girl!
    I LOVE the technique on the "rock" card. I have got to try that! I know what you mean about teenage boys being hard to make cards for, but this is perfect.
    That Mickey tin game is so cute Heidi. Doesn't look like it would take a long time to make a bunch of them either! Simple but cute.
    Now that butterfly stamp is amazing. You MUST explain how you do the medallion technique, I've never heard of it. Those cards sure are beautiful though.

  3. That card is awesome (the U Rock one) and that little tin is so neat! If you ever find those little tins (I will be looking too now!) let me know because Meagan LOVES tic tac toe! I would LOVE to have one of those!

  4. Hey Heidi, have you mailed out the no layer cards yet? Folks are clamoring for them!

  5. These butterflies are GORGEOUS!!!

  6. Thanks so much for all of the great comments!! I will try and post something very soon about the medallion technique and I also haven't forgotten about the little box--hope to get to that this weekend!
    Kelli--I'll give you a call I have a few other tin that I think Meagan might really like.
    Dana--I just left you a message on AH ;)

  7. AWESOME stuff, Heidi! i looove the butterfly, WOW!!

  8. Heidi! You are just too wicked talented! I love that "U Rock" card!
