For a Friend

Hi to all you stampers!

Here is a card that I created for the PPA Sketch Challenge #225....rather "different" sketch....had to think about this one!

I decided to have a "dotted" emphasis after starting with some designer paper from Flowerpot...then moved on to the Perfect Polka Dots TIEF for my Whisper White layer.

Keeping a Lost Lagoon monochromatic theme, I stamped the side with Bordering Blooms and chose a message from Let Your Hair Down...

I don't always manage to decorate my envelopes, bout I always feel more "complete" when I do!

Here is a little closer look:

And there you have it!  Hopefully the border blooms and maybe even the message softened the lines of this sketch....Mmmmm?

Season of Thanks

The season of Thanks is almost upon us, however should there have to be a "season" for Thanks?  I would like to greet each day with a thankful many reasons to be thankful to God!

Here is a card that has been waiting on the sidelines to be shown...and to give credit where it is due...I got the "vintage masking" idea from Deb Valder!  It is the kind of card that will be worth repeating, don't you think?

I used the stamp set, Dictionary, for the background masking... the image is made to appear vintage-y by not applying full pressure and creating a kind of faded look.  The "top" image from World of Dreams was stamped once, then immediately stamped to the side without re-inking the stamp or better known as "stamping-off".

It's a bit difficult to see in the picture, but the background was stamped in Crumb Cake and then the plant, leaves and message were stamped in Early Espresso.

The message is courtesy of the promotional stamp set for October only....Good Greetings.  This stamp set is free with a $300 order from Stampin' Up!

Have you seen the new photopolymer stamp set, Gentle Peace...#139523?  It's a beautiful Christmas tribute to the birth of Christ.....what a wonderful Christmas card this set will make... so pretty in color or heat-embossed!

The Fall Season

Hi everyone!

I feel as though I've made as many Fall cards this year as I will be making Christmas cards...that is how appealing the new sets are in the Holiday catalog!

For this card I used the sketch from Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge #224 and the colors came from the Paper Players Color challenge #217....

I turned the sketch to the side because I wanted to use the image from Seasonally Scattered and again, in the color challenge, the emphasis was on Fall colors.  So there!  What choice did I have but to make another Fall card?  And I don't think it will be the last one!  

I used a portion of one of the Oval Framelits to display the image and used the Baby-Wipe technique for the variation in color.  For the Baby-Wipe technique....drip reinkers onto a baby-wipe in an area large enough to ink the image and press the image into the baby-wipe...then stamp on card stock....Easy-Peasy!   I don't know who discovered this technique, but I thank that person!

The two little Mossy Meadow leaves are from the Fun Fall Framelits Collection.  
I thought the TIEF Fancy Fan strip would coordinate well with the Hello Honey designer paper...
