Thank You

Hi there everyone,
Hope everyone is having a wonderful fun and relaxing holiday weekend.

For all you digi lovers out there, are you familiar with the Ppinkydolls Art? They are located here over at Etsy and there are a lot of the cutest little girls in the world in this shop.

I made this card using this little cutie. Thought you'd like to see it.

I received this free image by joining in the Outlawz Progressive Challenge. This image is adorable isn't it!

Getting started, I used Color Burst on some water color paper and cut a large circle.I mounted that to the pink shimmer CS panel. I added a strip of DP next to the circle. Then I mounted the two landscapes onto it. Next I added the flowers and the leaves and the colored digital image. I cut a tag shape and stamped the sentiment. I added a ribbon and a bow then tucked the tag onto the ribbon. 

Next I mounted the finished pink shimmer panel to the cream card and the card is done.

Hi Everyone

On my last post I shared a card I made in a Stampscapes class I recently took. We made 3 cards and today I am sharing the 2nd card I made in that class.

The Stampscapes technique is really a gorgeous technique and the cards are perfect for anyone, especially guys.

Just a few stamps and you have a gorgeous scene.

I hope you are enjoying the cards I made in this fabulous class.

    It's a Guy Card

    Hi Everyone,

    Do you like Stampscapes??? I love that look. 
    Janet Winkle teaches the Stampscapes technique and was in town with 4 classes so I signed up for one. Janet works and teaches at Scrapbook Superstore in Sevierville TN. Also a few times a year she comes up to our area and offers classes. She will be back again in a few month with more classes at Stampaway so if you get a chance, sign up for one of her classes, you won't be disappointed.

    I want to share one of the cards I made in her class. This was a refresher class for me. I took  one of Janet's Stampscapes classes last year and felt like I needed to refresh my memory, old brains need help at times, ya know(LOL). Plus I just love this design.

    Stampscapes had always intimidated me and after the class last year, I got over that.  This card is the perfect design for a Fathers Day, birthday any other occasion for the male on your list. Lots of layers make this tie shaped design just POP.

    I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

  • Brown Sugar –  No. 146 - Father's Day (#11)
  • Wags 'n Whiskers - No. 154 - (W1 of 2) -  Lots of Layers (#25)
  • Inspiration Destination - #33 Always Anything Goes  (#125)
  • Wonderful Wednesdays -   Always Anything Goes (#3)
  • Party Time Tuesdays - #198 - Anything Goes (#82)

  • I have two more card designs to share with you from my class  this week.Stay tuned for those.

    Hi Everyone
    I have been playing in my studio today and wound up working with a new 12X12 piece of embossed paper from Canvas Corp. This floral sheet was a creamy color and was just calling my name so I bought it and looked at it for a few days before I decided what to do with it.

    Well I have been working on a project using Pan Pastels so since those were on my desk, I decided to color with those.

    Then after the coloring was done, I wanted to use an image that did not compete with the paper, so I decided on a stamped Eiffel Tower image and a tag and a really fluffy bow, all from my stash.
