    Thanks all!

    Mine was white, too, CastleQueen. I used it as a stamp with acrylic paint for "Everyone was happy" (hard to see) and glued it on the other card afterwards.

    Evalila I did see the place you stamped the card with the shelf lining, in red.

    The shelf lining was so perfectly covered in red, I thought maybe you got a red piece.

    Fantastic cards, Evalilla!!! Super use of all the items, I can hardly wait to see them in person. I'll be watching for the mail this coming week. So many details - and I'm with CQ5 it will be hard to pick a favorite.

    Just a note to everyone that I'm on a camping trip so my access to the web is limited. But I'll be back Weds so if I'm quiet just know I'm enjoying a campfire somewhere.

    Checking in! I've done some ATCs and backgrounds on my trip, but have a list of things I wish I would have brought: more ink, some die cuts and embellishments, more ephemera - it's funny how I thought I'd packed enough but when you're creating you never seem to have the right things. LOL!

    No mail yesterday, hoping to receive some cards this week.

    Can you believe August is almost over? Where did the summer go?!

    Your cards are outstanding qkenzie! I love your unique use of the "trash" items, especially the "crown" from the metallic paper. Very cool!

    My process. I got 2 spray glimmer like paints a pink and a turquoise, and I also used my ombre ink pad with a teal, blue and purple. I sprayed the coffee filter and blotted on the doily. I made a bunch of backgrounds using the colors and some punchinella.

    Then I took the file and sanded the cards. Then noticed my tombow tape runner was not sticking to the sanded cards. So I painted the cards with gesso. Only one of the cards used my wonderful backgrounds. I used the shelf liner and decorated the gesso covered cards.

    I ran the now colored coffee filter through my big shot or big kick machine with a few die cuts. One was a butterfly. a few birds, a mermaid, a unicorn. The butterfly made the cut and was added to a card.

    I made sure the shelf liner was fully covered with the ombre inks, as was my finger tips.

    Here is card one. Butterfly

    Used the coffee filter, doily, and words from the book.

    This card actually used one of my wonderful backgrounds. I cut petals from the remainder of the coffee filter, The circle, and the shelf liner is on the bottom.

    For this card I had added the flowers or stars, those could be either. I didn't feel that they popped enough, so I traced around them. Finally I just took them off and used the traced areas as a background. I used the words from the book, and stamped the background with the shelf liner. I used 1/2 a blue heart to make the words from the book stand out. I left a star that worked well on the card.

    I used the shelf liner to make a background with my ombre ink pad. The words are from the book. I think the birds are up to no good, based on the words.

    Shelf liner and bird die cut also used.

    My last card, titled True happiness.

    I used the tissue paper from the shoe box, the hearts, the coffee filter, the stamp. the shelf liner, the star flowers and even a larger circle is behind the hearts.
