Scraps! I dig in my scrap piles and make almost all of my cards (except for multiples like Christmas cards) completely out of scraps. It's a great way to use up those little scraps and I'm a pack rat so I keep them all!

I love to heat emboss on my cards. I recently have gotten into using Twinkling H2O's to color them in and I like the effects. Indian Card with heat embossing and twinkling H2O's.

I love using prismacolors and gamsol! It's such a nice way to color stuff, and I love how it blends!

Gamsol is the name brand, but they are odorless mineral spirits.

First you color your image with your prismas, then you use a blending stump to pick up some Gamsol (I use a piece of felt to soak up some gamsol then just roll my stump on the felt), then start blending away! I love the way it looks!

I love stamping and heat-embossing on my cards. I also like doing freehand illustrations.

Layering paper. I don't have any tips or special techniques BUT I do stamp the back of all my cards w/a flip flop stamp since I'm coo coo over flip flops. It's become by signature then I put my initials and date over the flip flop stamp.

What's fun flock? And, is there unfun flock? (Maybe I'd better go to bed - I'm getting punchy.) TIA.

A stamp of the image of flip flops.

Fun Flock is a suede look once applied.

Don't worry about it. I get that punchy slap happy feeling too.

Just a regular image stamp of a pair of flip flops. My sister found it somewhere and I use it as a trademark.
