Dasher Card #1

I was inspired by a card i saw the other day(sorry can't remember who) using the dasher stamp (page 161 of the 2010-2011 idea & catalogue book) and just had to have a go, and so here is my card.This card uses the masking technique for the moon and the faux tearing technique to create the snow. I added some dazzling diamonds to the top of the snow to give it the appearance of it glistening in the moonlight.

Book Mark
How awesome is the Clearly for you stamp set( in the Autumn-Winter mini catalogue, page 16), I just love it!! I decided to make another Ghiradelli box (see previous post for more info) and decorate it with this set. I added a velcro dot to keep it closed instead of using a band like in the instruction and just folded a medium oval in half and glued the other side inside the top lid.
The book marks i totally cased, everyone who owns this set is making them, the CEO of Stampin' Up! Shelli Gardner designed it, and i just love it.

Strength & Hope Case

Mini Tissue Box
I got the Strength & Hope set yesterday and was just bursting to play with it. I saw the card on Angie Brown's blog and had to case it, lucky i got the framed tulips embossing folder also in the mail,lol. The mini tissue box  i found on Vicky Hayes's blog she has a tutorial on how to make it.
Another new item that come in the mail was my color spritzer tool, up til recently i was like what am i going to do with that?? well i can't put it down now,lol, i just love how it makes everything so pretty.
