Can you believe...?

Me...Blogging two days in a row? What?  HaHa

Yep, I'm here with another card share for everyone.

A little while back I bought a stamp set from Stampin Up called "Lovely as a Tree" but never used it!  Ooops.

Well, I finally inked it up!  Here is what I did...

Makeshift modeling paste...

So, I watch A LOT of YouTube videos...I mean A LOT!  :)
Well, in one of Thefrugralcrafter videos she said you could use white window caulk in the place of embossing/modeling paste!  WHAT!?  How great is that!
So I tried it... and not only did it work great, it's way cheaper!

Ok, so I also came across this young man's blog and just had to share...

He used embossing paste and while it was still wet he sprinkled on some embossing powder, let it dry completely and then heat embossed it.  Did you see his adorable card?  I think it looks great! So I had to try it for myself!  :)
Here is my go at using white caulk as embossing paste and silver embossing powder TOO!

(oh and for the backgrounds in these cards, I tried out my new distress markers too.  I scribbled on my craft mat and then spritz it with water, then smooshed some water color paper around on it and tada!  )

I just uploaded another tutorial to youtube.  This time it is ''how to draw your own cupcake in Silhouette Studio''.

I'm looking to do more of these tutorials, so if you can think of anything YOU would like to draw in SS, leave me a comment and I will see what I can come up with.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am so nervous!

So I made this card (products listed below)

I drew the sun and clouds using the Silhouette Studio program that comes with the cameo.  A friend asked me to show how I did that.  So, I made my first screen capture video and put it on youtube.  *EEEKS*

Here is the video

Please leave any comments of suggestions you may have, but PLEASE be kind!  HaHa

Over at Vicky's blog, she shows how to list your products on your blog and youtube videos!  AND she is having a giveaway!

Here are the products I used on this card:

Monogram on a burlap canvas

Recently I ordered a Silhouette Cameo from and I love it!
I mostly am into paper crafting, but I can easily see vinyl becoming an addiction!
