Here's a set of cards that I was inspired to make after browsing Michelle's blog ~ yep, another case! I love this little trio of cards ~ perfect for spring and the sentiment "from the heart" is perfect for so many occassions. The color combos I chose were: banana/saffron, amethyst/lilac, pink/regal. All of the bottom layers were stamped with the Paisley bg stamps using white craft.
Here's a close-up of one of the flowers:
After being able to stamp so much today, I just feel like taking a deep breath and saying "aaahhhhhhh" ~ it was a nice, relaxing day. Hope yours was, too!
card info: stamps ~ bloomin' beautiful, paisley, holidays and wishes. paper ~ banana, saffron, amethyst, lilac, pink, regal, ww. ink ~ black, white craft. access. ~ ribbon, silver cord, punches, markers, piercer.
Yay, got a card done on time for a change! The featured stamper was Michelle, sf9erfan on SCS. Awesome gallery ~ go check it out!
To me, the Bloomin' Beautiful set calls for elegant dp, but I decided to be a rebel (oooohh, I'm such a bad a$$, hehe, just kidding!) and use some funky dp with it instead. I think it works! What do you think?
Very simple card ~ used only black ink and colored in the flower w/ SU markers. Added some piercing and a little ribbon and organdy. Voila!

Sorry for not posting in a while, a little thing called *life* has kept me busy.
Here's the card I did for this week's CC ~ blush, guava and basic grey. Such a pretty combo. The flowers have stickles all over them and I finally used some of the square brads I've had for years! I used one of the small stamps from the One of a Kind for the border around the card base, then highlighted it with a white gel pen. I decided to leave off a sentiment so I could use it for any occassion.

Alright, sorry I haven't posted in a while! Kind of a crazy week and weekend between baseball games (3 during the week and 3 on Saturdays!) plus a 5 hr visit to the ER (not to worry, everyone's fine now!), time just gets away from ya!
I did start the flowered panel on Sat. and just never did anything with it once it was colored. Then I saw the TLC on SCS and Julee's Mojo sketch challenge on her blog (go check it out!) and I suddenly felt inspired! Love it when that happens! I used a black ribbon and white organdy for the TLC, which was to use stacked ribbons. I wanted to use up the last of my black vintage brads, but didn't think they'd stand out very well, so I sanded them to help them show up. I pierced along the larger kraft panel, then sponged the edges w/ black ink. And I must say, kraft is really easy to blend colors on (easier than plain ol' white paper), almost like watercolor paper. I love all the layering on this, especially around the sentiment. Well, I gotta get some things done and prep for 2 baseball games tonight! AAHHH! And they're at the same time, fortunately their fields are right next to each other.
Take care ~ hugs ~
