Timeless Tuesday 51

Fourishes timeless tuesday is calling for "P" so I used purples, they really match in real life, punches, pearls on this card. This is from one of their new sets also. I love these stamps and the sayings are so nice, they are small and will also fit into the tags from Spellbinders.

Midnight madness challenge #38

Priscilla's blog has the layout for this weeks challenge. Hop over there to take a look at the DT's cards, just wonderful ideas. I used some new papers from Laura Ashley's old fashioned velvet flocking. Added the roses, they really match in real life and the corners and bling. The papers in this collection are gorgeous and all very vintage.

A few more valentines

This Easel card was made for the Thursday challenge over at Impression Obsession's Blog. I embossed it in gold and then used the edge of teh stamp to go around the edges. Fancy pants DP and some embellishments. The pink card was made using strips of K&Co new valentine papers and the idea came from the Spellbinders newsletter. I stamped and embossed the heart from Flourishes on this and then added some bling. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful stamping weekend.

Some weekend stamping

I used a crafty secret image and printed it several time to make this pyramid card. I had some problems with a couple of my layers and didn't use them. Here is a link to the spellbinders blog that has the tutorial on it and a video of how to do this and her card is just gorgeous. It was fun and I think they are so pretty layered like this.

Flourishes Jan challenge

Flourishes challenge today is about "love". After seeing Stacy's card on the blog with her gorgeous baby blue I knew I wanted to do this card for my hubby. Heart and saying are from Flourishes and I used all beige, tans and browns.

Impression Obsession Challenge

Impression Obsession is having a fun challenge today and blog candy!! I used Springtime Birdhouse G1644 for this challenge. I stamped in memento black ink and copics to color. Mustard and teal papers, MS punch on the corners and the bird, some gems on the corners. I sponged some light blue around the birdhouse but it's not showing very well on the scan.

Our Daily Bread Design Challenge 110

Our daily bread design challenge 110 today was to use browns and some die cuts or punches. I used the stamps from Quiet Waters on this card. I colored with copics and some memento ink to distress the edges. I used the copper pen to color the pearl and a copper cross. Thanks for stopping by and check out the other card on their blog.

Ribbon hearts

The Spellbinders blog DT had some sneak peeks today for the new dies coming out. I loved what one of the gals did with ribbons and the new Easter eggs which will be released at the end of the month. I tried it with my heart nestabilities and it works pretty well. It would be much easier with the straight edge hearts than these scalloped ones though. I ran paper thru the zyron and then laid the ribbons on it, ran it thru the wizard several times and then trimmed the heart out to get the little edges etc. Martha Stewart heart border punch and some embellishements.

Flourish Valentine

Someday I need to learn to read correctly, I was suppose to use "their" colors which I didn't for the challenge on Flourishes blog. Oh well back to the drawing board but I still like the card, LOL

Midnight madness challenge #35

This valentine was made for Priscilla's midnight madness sketch this week. I used the heart stamp from Flourishes and the saying is from my sentiments. The cuttlebug was done on the coredinations white washed paper and sanded off. Marvy ink and in real life (irl) it does match the papers perfectly. LOL

Some scenic stamping this weekend

I spent several hours this weekend reorganizing my unmounted scenic stamps. We do get togethers a few times a year and I wanted to organize them by category and not company. I played with some new sutter stamps, and new Beeswax ones. I like them both but I love the castle one from Beeswax, I love vintage anything! Copics to color them and airbrush them on cryogen paper. Hope everyone had a great New Years and thanks so much for all the comments and support thru last year.
