Gratitude: SCS Sketch Challenge #550




Today at Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #550 we were to choose a Sketch from the past and I chose SC539. 
wanted to use some dies that I just purchased from my favorite stamp and scrap store that closed the doors last week. The only upside is that I might be able to save some money.

The bubble circles in the background represent the panel strip from the sketch. Everything else is just thrown in for decoration. I die cut the rose with Tim Holtz tattered pinecone Bigz die and punched the flowers from yellow mulberry paper, stained the edges with distress inks in fired brick and abandoned coral and a spritz of water.

Supplies used: Lil' Inker stitched circle, memory box Pierson Corner and Leaves dies, Elizabeth 1028-Circles die, Martha Stewart hydrangea punch, Magenta stencil and TH textured paste.

Reclaimed Wood Wedding TCC35


 The Yin and Yang of the dark weathered wood and the beautiful delicate flowers and tulle was everything needed to create my Classy and Elegant wedding/anniversary card. (I have not decided yet which it will be). I used Heidi Swapp's Woodgrain Stamp Block to stamp gray card stock in black ink. The panels/boards are 1and 1/4" wide by 5 and 1/8" long. They are mounted and popped up onto a gray panel and then onto a pale gray card base. I tied the tulle around the panel first before mounting onto card base. The roses are die cut with a Sizzix 3-D rose and Tim Holts tattered pine cone dies. The foliage includes; punch bunch fern, impression obsession hollyhock tops and  memory box 'fresh foliage dies. The pearls embellishment is from the wedding section at Michaels Craft Store. 

I look forward to seeing how you are inspired for The Card Concept 35!

Enjoy Golfing today!

Mojo Monday 392


Love the sketch this week at  Mojo Monday 392! I'm taking a short break from flowers this week (or just today) for a more masculine card. (Not that women don't enjoy golf) but this is for my husband's friend/golfing partner's birthday. And yes, he does enjoy golf very much. The golf card and bag are from memory box, and the sentiment is from Verve's "Small Packages" set vs-0224.

Easter Cherry Blossoms Blessings TCC32



There are so many possibilities with the beautiful inspiration photo at The Card Concept this week! Easter is near so I wanted to show the cracked egg in a different way. I used Spellbinder s Ric Rac Scalloped Border die to display the blessings inside the egg and to say that spring is here! (for some of us). I die cut out of watercolor paper the Sizzlits Cherry Blossom branch and flowers and colored with Distress Inks, markers and stains in the colors in the inspiration photo.
We hope you will join us and add your creation to the gallery at The Card Concept!

Happy Easter AAA#36

Easter Colors with a touch of Glitter


Easter colors are sweet and fun and bring hope for new beginnings. I want to be in a field filled with flowers right now but that's not happening. So, I've used a small flower stamp and sentiment from Verve's 'Egg-stra Special' set today. I stamped the flower in Hero Arts 'cup o' joe ink and stamped the image (as you can see) many times. I then colored them with copic markers in the soft colors. I added  turquoise stickles to the centers on the panel and filled in the background with a light green copic marker. The bunny is an impression obsession stamp.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOUR EASTER COLORS CREATION AT AAA CARDS !
