I inked both a bold font saying and a bold butterfly image with light blue dye ink. Then inked a crackled texture stamp with dark blue ink. Kissed (or pressed) the light blue inked bold stamps onto the dark blue ink textured stamp.
Then huffed (breathed) onto the doubled ink stamps and stamped onto white card stock.
I have a collection of decorative paper bags from shopping over the years. I decided to cut them into 3/4" wide strips to make birthday cakes and to punch out candles. Used metallic gel pens to color the flames of the candles.
The cards I make for stamp club:

My daughter-in-law sent me some of the onesies from when the twins were babies and asked me to make them quilts. I decided to cut out the designs from the onesies and use iron-on light interfacing as for a t-shirt quilt. The squares from these small onesies were pretty small, so I added lots of other fabrics to create these quilts. She is very happy with them. Whew!

The theme for 9ATC Group is embossing. I decided to use embossing folders. For the base, I adhered foil to carpet tape, then ran it through a small textured embossing folder in the Cuttlebug. Used black India Ink to color the top of the embossed foil.
Used a small metal brad for the birds eye. Added the embossed bird image to the ATC along with the word "soar".

I squirted 3 colors of alcohol inks onto an 8-1/2" by 11" piece of glossy card stock. (Used more alcohol ink than is shown in this photo)
Added the butterfly image and some blue rhinestones to complete the ATC.
