About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

Sunshine Wishes

     I was starting this tag for the last OCC Challenge of resist stamping, but couldn't work out the wings.  Anyway, it was a fun tag to make.  I started out with a large tag from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  If you've never shopped with Linda before, you have to check her out.  Her prices are the best I've found, she's got so much cool stuff, and Linda ALWAYS gives great thank you gifts.  The beautiful lace on the bottom of my tag was a thank you gift. 
     OK, OK, OK, back to the tag.  First I stamped the sunflower, colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers (Check out the Funkie Junkie for her price) I then covered it with Glossy Accents so that the embossing wouldn't stamp over the flower.  After drying overnight I was ready for the next step.  Like my last card, I stamped a script image on the bottom of the tag using Ranger Emboss It.  I then sprinkled Ranger Clear Embossing Powder over it and used to heat tool to melt it.  I used various colors of Distress ink to blend unto the tag and last but not least I used glue and flocking for the center of the sunflower. Oops!  I also used Crackle Accent on the Sunshine sentiment and put on the lace on the bottom and ribbon on the top.  THANKS FOR STOPPING. Oops again....I used flock on the inside of the sunflower.
