It's day 2 of our mini blog hop tour. I

hope everyone had fun hopping around yesterday and are ready for some more hopping. I know I'm ready!! Here is the sketch for todays card.


Here is my take on this sketch

On this card I stamped my image with black stazon ink and colored it with a blender pen and my stampin pastels. (I am so loving my pastels). I then rubbed some Not Quite Navy chalk around the edge of the paper to give it kindof a sky feel to it. The flowers are from the pretties kit and I dyed the big one in Bermuda bay reinker and the little on was dyed in the same re-inker and water mixture ( this gave it just a touch a light blue coloring). When they were dry I used my 2 way glue pen and cover the entire flower with glue and sprinkled dazzling diamonds glitter over them. Love the sparkle.

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.

Pintrest CASE


Once or twice a month I get together with some friends to stamp, we have so much fun and are always looking forward to the next time we can get together.  This is one of the cards we made at our last get together.  This was a total CASE from pinterest.

I don't really have much to talk about today.  Took the day off work and I haven't gotten anything done.  I have so much to do and I can't seem to figure out where to start.  Anyways I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
