Wish Big

Wish big is a clear stamp set by Hero Arts.  This was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers.  Holes for the ribbon were punched so it came around the stamped image as if it were really holding the balloons.  Very simple.  This was all mounted on plain card stock in shades of purple and orange. (edit:  the shades of Copics are green, blue, purple, orange and yellow)   Hope you enjoy.

Color Inspiration

JustRite Stamps is sponsoring a color inspiration this week.  I thought I would give it a try and wanted to make a very simple card.  I stamped a JustRite Happy Birthday greeting with Memento Rich Cocoa and cut it with a Spellbinder oval.  The solid paper is Bazzill and the DP is TPC Studio "Ancestral Teal Brocade".  Antique Linen was used on the stamped sentiment and on the ribbon.  A very very simple card.  Hope you enjoy.

A simple card

This is what I call a simple, but not clean card.  It is on the flat side as nothing has been pop dotted.  The card was stamped with Hero Arts "border messages" on white paper.  This was distressed with Antique Linen and mounted on a Bazzill blue.  The main card is a paper by Bazzill that you can sand.  This was mounted on the blue.  In a few minutes a very simple card.  I have a purpose for this being simple.  I need to make several in the next few days.  This being in a tan is more masculine.  I plan to make a couple in shades of green to be more feminine.  Hope you enjoy.

I Love You

A clean and simple card designed using a card sketch by Kristina Werner for the Clean and Simple On-Line card class.  The card began with a 5 x5 light blue cardstock.  A post it note was used to mask the center.  This was stamped using the  Impression Obsession "Flourishes" and Distress Ink "iced spruce".  Three hearts were cut with a Spellbinder heart die (smallest) and using a white Gelly Roll pen mock stiching was added.  The  mock effect was also placed around the solid square.  The sentiment was stamped from a Mimi Penny Black set and heat embossed using Hero Arts embossing powder. This was all mounted on a white 5.25 square to make a simple to complete card. Hope you enjoy.

A Little Something Different

My little something different are two scrapbook pages I created this weekend.  My daughter and I spent the weekend scrap booking.  We do that a couple of times a year.  This time my 2 year old granddaughter did some crafting herself.  We provided her with a few stickers to make a card for Daddy.  The pages I am sharing were from our family Christmas.  The pictures include my son, granddaughter, daughter and son-in-law.  A variety of papers and supplies from We R Memory Keepers, Little Yellow Bicycle, and several other companies were used to put these pages together.  The pictures are a little off so sorry.  I just wanted to share and hope you enjoy my little something different.
