Priceless Thank you card

I just love this card. Last weeks tutorial on was a gift card holder and I just had to use the design for a card, so this is what I came up with. The base is groovy guava and I stamped the flourish in gg. Then a layer of certainly celery and so saffron, but distressed with the cutter kit (don't ya love that thing?) Then on whisper white I stamped the flourish in so saffron, the butterfly in groovy guava and the little flower in certainly celery. I wrapped a piece of certainly celery just around the ww cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in black and punched it out with the small oval punch and then punched out the large oval in groovy guava and distressed the edge of that as well. Thanks for looking!!


Happy Friday everyone! So here is my swap flop. I joined my good friend, Dawn's Fabulous Fall Swap over on and I have been racking my brain to come up with something great. This card looked SO much better in my little brain. Needless to say I will not be making this one for her swap. I have come up with a different design, which I will post later! Thanks for looking!

Inspire...Natural Beauty

Hello again everyone! I hope you all are having a great start to your week. I just love this set, Natural Beauty. I hate that SU! retired it. I used always artichoke paper for the base and stamped print pattern in aa ink as well. Then stamped the small backgroud from the set in so saffron on so saffron paper. I wrapped the tan ribbon around the so saffron piece. I stamped and cut out the butterfly. I watercolored it using watercolor crayons and aquapainters, then adhered it with pop dots. I used the black marker to ink up just the word Inspire and stamped it on whisper white and put in one of the hodgepodge hardware frames. Enjoy!

WANTED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW! I am SO sorry I have not uploaded in so long. I didn't realize it has been over a month since I have posted something. Forgive me?

Here is a card for my DH's birthday today. He is originally from Texas, so I figured he would like it. He loved it! I got a little crazy with the chocolate chip ink, but I think it came out good. I used chocolate chip paper for the base and stamped the larged medallion stamp from the Wanted set by SU! Then I used a piece from the Outlaw designer series paper. I crumpled it up and tore a bit off the corner, then attacked it with the sponged and choc. chip ink. I stamped the sentiment in choc. chip on ivory and crumpled it and inked it as well. Then added the hodgepodge and hemp to the side. I stamped the horse in choc chip ink and then again without reinking, again crumpling and inking that piece as well. I also used the cutter kit on the all edges. I hope you like it! I will post more soon and not let so long go in between posting, so check back soon!!!
