These great hibiscus are from the new stamp set "Extreme Happiness." I used the second generation rock & roll technique (shown on p. 23 of the Summer 2009 Idea Book) to get the varied color on the petals. The background paper is from the new "Moon Doggie" Level 2 paper packet.

This duck, along with the waves and bubbles, is from the new stamp set, "Makin' Waves." I used Liquid Glass on the duck and Stickles on the life preserver. The Stickles made the ink bleed a little, and Jen (Obi Wan of stamping) suggested using Staz-On ink to prevent this.

I was away from work for two weeks, so I brought a huge bag of movie theater popcorn in to the office as a thank you to my coworkers for keeping my work done during my absence. I made this card to go with it. I used markers to color the popcorn stamp (different shades of yellow for the popcorn), and a little glitter on the popcorn to make it look oily and salty. I used a little liquid glass in the circle portion of the popcorn box.

In conjunction with National Scrapbooking Month (yes, you nonbelievers--there is a National Scrapbooking Month!) and Close to My Heart's Tickled Pink kit campaign, CTMH created a website where you can share your Tickled Pink artwork and win CTMH products. Here's the link: http://www.scrapbookandshare.com/ Even if you aren't interested in posting your creations, it's a great place to view others' artwork and get some inspiration. You can also navigate there with the "Scrapbook and Share" button on the upper righthand area of my blog that links to the website.

These pictures are awful, but here's a folio I made from a pink file folder, folded the long way, then accordian folded.
