Happy Birthday

Have to say no creating here this past two weeks.  Since my last post have been off to New York and Washington DC.  This card was made as a sample for the Fond Memories spring workshop the first part of April.   I used a stamp set Taylored Expressions for the cute little chicks that created a border. "County boy Owen" by Paper Nest Dolls is the main image for the card.  Copic Markers were used to color the stamped images.  Antique Linen dress ink was used to distress the background.  The sentiment was cut with a die that is the stem of a flower.  Hope you enjoy

This cute stamp is from Paper Nest Dolls.  A variety of Copic markers were used to color the image.  The image was cute with a Spellbinder oval and distressed with Antique Linen.  The oval image was mounted on a pink cut with another Spellbinder die.  Festive spring paper, a memory box leaf die and ribbon helped finish off the card.  Hope you enjoy.

The Look of spring

Today is to be a nice warm spring day so I thought a post with flowers would be appropriate.  This card is a top fold A2 in size.   The card base is Desert Storm and scraps were used for the black and blue.  The flowers were stamped with Lawn Fawn "Our Friendship Grows" set and cut with the coordinating die.  The flowers were colored with copic markers and layered on the card.  A simple card that is quick to make.  Hope you enjoy

Happy 50th Birthday

A very simple card made for someone with a 50th birthday.  The sentiment was heat embossed and is from Penny Black.  The Balloons were oval dies and a small hand cut paper added to create the bottom of the balloon.  The 50 is from a set of dimensional stickers.  A little black twine makes the balloons look like they are in the air.  The white has been dry embossed with a Happy Birthday folder from Sizzix.  After I took the picture I added Wink of Stella glitter to the black balloons.  Hope you enjoy.

Is it coffee time

Today is the big spring workshop in Walnut Grove.  This is a sample card using one of the workshop stamps to show others ways of using it.  There are three stamp sets used on this card.  Taylored expressions has some really nice coffee sets and two are used here along with a sentiment stamp from Stampendous.  Copic markers, distress inks and ribbon finish off the card
