It's been a while!

Boy, I haven't been able to upload anything for a while so I thought I'd post some of my most recent creations. I've been working a lot with my justjohanna stamps and still have tons more to scan and upload.
This was a card created for my card class at Angela's Happy Stamper. I turned the label on it's side and thought the bar at the side resembled a flower stem. I dug through all my jj stamps to find the perfect flower bud...The small lacy circle fit the bill perfectly! I also added a tiny circle from circle background for the inner part of the circle. Made a little "tag" to hang off the flower using some doodling and thanks ever so stamp.

I'm doing a few classes with justjohanna stamps at my lss and here are a few of the ATC's for the ATC class. How fun it is to play with a series of stamps to create a little scene like the one at the bottom...Those three chicks were all headed home until that last little chick spotted Angela's stampin' store and had to turn around and go in...for just a minute! LOL.

I made several cards for my LSS to display with her new order from justjohanna. I'm sure she'll get lots of wonderful creations from others on the design team, but I thought she would appreciate some more from me before she gets the set from the dt.

This card was made with one of my most used jj stamps. I think for me, it's a staple and can be used in so many ways. I love to stamp it on colored papers and cut out the little circles so they can make a fun little flower arrangement. Here's the link to the stamp: Circle Dot Background (98K). The stems were created using part of the Stand Left stamp (118R). I created the sky background using a masking technique. The sentiment used was from harvest hello (1134B)

The large mug (747G) and hot and steamy words (703E) are also one of my most used stamps in my jj collection. I also used the large lacy circle (652Q) and the dots large (608K). This time, I colored the border, inside of the dots and the holes in the lacy circle using metallic blue acrylic paint. I colored the liquid inside the cup with a copic marker. I really loved how this layout turned out.

This card can be used both horizontally and vertically since I chose not to put any sentiments or focal images on it. I just stamped the brown strip with the dots large (608K) and some hints of the long legged sue right (806F). I painted the insides of the dots with a blue metallic paint. After adding the Kaiser flowers, I thought the center needed a bit of bling so I added a clear dew drop (that I inked on the back with my copic marker to give it that teal color) on top of one of the circles from circle dot background (98K).

So that's it for the time being...
