Fragrant Garden

Today I would like to show you a card I made using Spellbinders Card Creator set A & B, Spellbinders Card Creator Polka Dot and JustRite Stamper Fragrant Garden stamp.

This is such a fun stamp! I stamped it using Archival Ink – coffee and then cut it out with the Polka Dot die. I inked the edges with more coffee. For the insert I stamped a second one and using the card creator set A I cut the center out and colored it with my alcohol inks. Added a flower and charms …. what a fun project!

Happy Birthday Logan … well almost

On Friday, 9-28, my grandson will be 8 years old. I still remember the minute he was born as I do with all my grandchildren and children. All were blessed days. So, even though he will not see this post I know he will be happy with the card as it is his favorite theme. He loves the army so when I saw this image at Saturated Canary I knew I had to have it. The image is ‘General’ and he is adorable.

A little time

To play …. so happy. I wish that I had a lot more of it but since I have to get buying goodies I need to work so I will definitely take what time I can get.

I recently received my new purchases so definitely had to give them a go so I made this card.

001 (Medium)

I made this card specifically for the TOMIC challenge which is a sketch, no character image and embossing, dry or wet. After I got it done I started wondering about the sketch. I tilted it so not sure if this will be accepted, I sure hope so. I am giving it a shot!

Here is a list of materials.

Wow, that’s a lot!!

Here are some more pictures to show the detail.

Tilda with floating hearts

It’s time for a new challenge over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers and this time we would like to see you use one color (monochrome) or no color on your image. Since I love to color I had to go monochrome and I am so glad I did. Here is my card.

I chose to use pink … one of my favorite colors. The following materials were used to create this card. The hearts on the side I made by taking the Spellbinders classic hearts and
tracing around the edges and then cutting it out to make my own on edge decoration.
