Hmmmmm - I am thinking that you and I have some of the same embossing folders and dies too now Smiley  I love using aluminum tape - try using alcohol inks on it - then you get a coloured metallic look, and I posted a tutorial on my blog here using die cuts from metallic tapes, alcohol inks, crackle medium, and dimensional glue to make your own stickers.  One roll goes a long way too!

I received from kbrison today too!  She has got some cool origami skills, and sent me an adorable package....



First off, she sent me a note on this cute card - it makes me want a hot chocolate right now.  Did you make this one too?  Love the use of the vellum for the steam.



Origami hearts above, and a flower below, and a cute little shirt tag.



A close up of the shirt tag - I think one of my best friends will get a kick out of this - he loves bright patterned shirts - I may tag it to a shirt for a gift for him.



A fish and a dress - look at how the pattern lines up on the dress - perfect!



Another dress - I love the papers she used, but I am probably going to keep this one, and frame it probably - the dress has little strawberries on it and I love strawberries!



She sent me a set of Scottie dog cards too - they all have red bows made with a red foiled paper - I love Scotties - my grandmom had one when I was very very young and he was such a handful - I loved him!



She also included some great steampunk patterned tags.  I love the entire package - thank you so much Kathy!

..... oooooooooooh - are we talking gin?Huh?  Pass the booze this way!

Haven't seen Citadelle here - I am a fan of Bombay Sapphire myself.  Hard to find someone who knows how to make a Lime Rickey too - I used to have to tell the bartenders how to make it.  Nowadays I am happy enough with a decent G&T with lime twist.

I started on a couple of little pieces.  Not 100% satisfied with them - so may do a bit of fine tuning...

WOW!  Ludi - that is amazing!  How did you add the dimensional details - was it batting, or did you make a hard form then put fabric and stitching over it?

Thank you - I decided to send all the extra cards I made because I figured I could always make more if I want - and also I am expecting to get a lot of wonderful cards soon anyways! 

Kathy - the dark brown leaves are actually clear embossing - I love to use clear powder on bright or dark card stock because it then looks like a deeper tone on tone embossing and it really stands out.  then you never have to worry about having the perfect matching embossing powder too.

Wow - love the gallery so far - and am loving the different types of shrines - what is the base of the round moon one?

LOL - maybe we just share the same aesthetic!  I always troll the local library for neat things to craft with, like map books, vintage stuff...

I was thinking that yellow would look nice against the blue - are those little black faces the stars?

Oh Kathy - you don't need to be tugging on the pole and twitching that lure any more... I am not envisioning a frothy frilly fifties style apron altered with snark all over it.... dagnabit.  If I don't join (and I am toeing that decision line pretty darn hard), I may have to craft along.

Let me think on it tonight while I'm on my night shift - you know, between about 1 am to 3 am, when I am on my break, bored and highly prone to suggestion.
