Just a fun, fun, fun set of stamps!  Had so many ideas running through my head for this set of stamps so here is one of my projects.  I call it, "Noteables" and I have been making these for years and giving them out as gifts to friends and relatives.  Even my husband said this one came out good and for him that is great praise.  Did some masking with mushrooms and gnome (isn't he such an adorable figure), colored gnome with Prisma color pencils or any brand you prefer.  Look here and you can see more of the butterflies like here on my notable.  Added gold ribbon in a bow and just wrapped around plus some more of the glitter buttons I made last week.....isn't it great to use up things you have on your table......last used a grass border punch.  Phew! guess that's it for my noteable. Check out this noteable I made a few years back.  Here is another card I created doing a technique where first you stamp on acetate with Staz-On Jet black  ink pad, turn it over add a few drops of dye ink re-inkers, diamond glaze then spread it around very gently with your finger making sure not to muddy up the colors.  Sprinkle on some glitter, crinkle up a piece of tissue paper then add that to it and allow it to dry.  When dry add it to your card.  That's it from me for now.  Hope you enjoyed my projects.  Come back tomorrow for last day at Mark's Finest Papers blog hop and don't forget to keep commenting because you never know if you will the winner of a new stamp set.

  15. Like the noteables. Like the coloring & whimsy to this stamp set. When I think of gnomes I think of the statue one a friend painted for me & gave to me when I was younger and I still have it.
