Guest Designer ~ Jamie

Hi Everybody! I am Jamie Moore and I am the guest designer this week. Thanks to Jennifer for letting me share with you this week.
I am a teacher, photographer and crafter. I have been making things my whole life but only started making cards about two years ago. I have been addicted every since. I love to create anything with paper. If you would like to see some of my creations check out my blog.

My first posting is of two cards using the same cut from Sweet Treats. I used the cake on page 40 in the manual. I wanted to make something original, which is hard to do with all the great crafters I follow. I came up with this.

I cut the circles using my circle punch, inked the edges of the top two and glued them all down overlapping slightly. Then I tied the ribbon around the card. I cut the cake at 2 1/2 inches, stamped the image, and sprayed with glitter.  I use glitter that comes in a spray can. It is a lot cheaper to buy then the small bottles. You can find the spray glitter at any of the craft store in the spray paint section.

The second card I made is the same cake but the card cut out at 7 inches. I added the layers and sprayed glitter on the candle only. I added blue jewels using my I*rock at the bottom.

Closer view of the details.

Thank you for looking and I hope you get the chance to check my blog. I love comments and look forward to hearing from you.

Operation Write Home’s Bunny Hop March 5, 2011

Welcome to Operation Write Home’s Bunny Hop. 

 If you’re here for Jenn’s Birthday blog hop, click Here.
If you’re following along, you should have come here from Loni at  If you were just visiting my blog, be sure to grab your favorite drink & settle in for a marathon of a hop!  There are over 125 blogs participating today!
If this is your first stop, you’ll want to go back to to start at the beginning…
Operation Write Home is such a great organization, I just had to participate….
If you’d like to contribute cards to Operation Write Home, the Easter deadline is March 18th and Mother’s Day deadline is March 31 – remember, they need to get the cards out early to the troops…I will be traveling next week, so I think I am going to pre-cut some cards so that I can color & assemble them (since I won’t be able to take my scissors with me….)

So I used some of the awesome digi’s that Sandy had posted here:

Since the theme was spring, I also decided to make a 2nd card to showcase the cool sketches you can find on OWH’s site:


First Card:
I colored the eggs & chicks with my copic markers.  I don’t have a lot of different colors, so I’m sort of limited…  I don’t have a lot of Easter images, but I couldn’t quite think what to do with the chicks & the eggs; so I remembered I had a Stampin’Up basket stamp (that has been neglected, lately) and colored that with the copics.  I had to “fussy cut” (I got that from someone elses’ blog & loved the description) the basket.  I hand cut the grass (just snipped up paper really thin) and added some bling with my i-rock.  It’s well attached, so I don’t have to worry…  I also added a bow to the top of the basket…  Pink gingham felt very Eastery to me…  

And in the inside, I cut out one of the other pairs of chicks (I had colored both since I’m learning to use the copics) and stamped Happy Easter (Stampin’ Up).

2nd Card:

This is stampin up hostess set and copics..  Sorry for the slightly blurry photography…
And of course I have blog candy!!!
