Stamps-SU! Forest Friends and Trendy Trees
Hi everyone! I made this card for the LSC222 on SCS and for the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge! We were to use only designer paper for all layers except for the card base and to try to keep the embellishments simple! Not so sure I limited myself enough but it's late and I am not trying it again! The butterflies and swirls are designer paper. The swirls are a Cuttlebug die cut that I cut up and rearranged. I did the regular scallops with a corner rounder. I used a vanilla Hodge Podge Hardware ribbon slide and some pearls on the butterflies. I do like this pink! It's so pretty!
Paper-Regal Rose, SU! Walk in the Park, SU! hostess pack
Ink-Memento black, Regal Rose
Accessories-MS butterfly punch, MS lacy border punch, vanilla HPH, pearls, ribbon, lace, cuttlebug and die, corner rounder, Xyron sticker maker
Well, I really need to go to bed so, thanks for taking a look and have a great weekend everyone!

Here are a couple of cards I made for Our Daily Bread designs upcoming June releases! The two new sets are called Quiet Waters and Ask, Seek, Knock. For the first card I colored the image with copics (B21, B34, B93, BG10, BG72, E31, E33, E37, G21, W5, YG63, YG67). I then added some highlights on the water and trees with a white gel pen. I cut the image scene and mat with Spellbinders Labels Four nestabilities and sponged the edges with Sage Shadow ink. I added butterflies, bow, and pearls to finish it!
Cardstock-Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa, White
Designer paper- SU!
Other Accessories-Martha Stewart butterfly punch
For this one, I again used my copics(W5, E29, E31, E37). Just love to color with these markers! I colored the hinges and door knocker with a silver metallic pen. I added the cross by punching holes and sewing it on with silver thread. I used a negative punched piece to add to the bottom left corner. Added ribbon and silver cord. When I finished, the cross looked gold to me instead of silver so I painted it with the metallic pen!
Cardstock-Going Gray, Black, Basic Gray, White
Other Accesder punch, slot punch
Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate it so much!
Hi everyone! Welcome to my first post on my brand new blog! I am so excited! The first card I want to show you today is in honor of all of the soldiers who have helped to keep our country safe and free! I know I am so grateful for their sacrifices. I used a stamp set from Our Daily Bread designs called In God We Trust. This majestic eagle is colored with copic markers (C1, Y17, Y28). I cut the image out with Spellbinders Nestabilities dies (standard large circle and Pinking small circle). I used a border punch at the bottom and to do the top corners. I scored a line above the border with my scor-pal, added lace, ribbon and rhinestones to complete the card. Enjoy your Memorial Day!
