A couple of 3D stuffs!

Well, thought I ought to post these, I keep forgetting to! LOL! I make stuff and then will post it on StampTV or SCS and then forget to post here on my blog, lol. Anyways, Here are a couple of things I have been up to lately:

First, is a coaster, I actually made a coaster set, all the same as this one, and followed Gina's technique shown on Stamp TV. I used Melanie's set 'A Charmed Life' from Gina K Designs




I really love how this coaster set turned out! I think my brother and SIL in Houston will like a set like this, they drink wine alot, haha! I used the stayz on ink on this, and to get the red inside of the wine glass I used a q-tip to apply it. To highlight in the middle, I just lightly sanded that area. I think this whole set, all 4 coasters took me maybe 30 minutes to make! That is like QUICK for me, lol!!

And then I played in the 3D challenge for this month at StampTV hosted by Donna, and it was to make a bookmark. I read ALOT...and I mean alot...I feel lost if I do not have anything to read! So when I saw the challenge, I decided I was going to make myself a bookmark, and here it is:




Donna had hers laminated and I really liked that idea so I did that to mine too. Besides protecting it, it gives it more strength too. I really like my new bookmark! *big grin*

Ok, thats all for now. I do have a card made, but will save that for tomorrow to post. Did ya'll notice too that blogger has a scheduled outage for 2am (PDT) Wed? I have no clue what time this is for me (CST), so hoping this goes through, lol!! Thanks for stopping by!!

I love your coaster & bookmark (wasn't it nice to make yourself something?!) I LOVE the laminating of it, for sturdiness! It's Pacific Daylight Time (Westcoast) during Summer - PST when it's Winter. We are always 2 hours ahead of that.

You are such a talented stamper! I love the coaster. I just learned how to do this last weekend and I can't wait to make more. I have the decorative tiles on my blog that I made for Mothers Day.
