Stamping 411 #254

Hello Everyone,

This is a card I made using the Stamping 411 sketch.  I made this for friend of mine who's grand-daughter is graduating this year.  All items used are from Stampin' up.  The stamp set is called Elements of Style.  I water colored this image with my stampin' write markers and a water tank brush. CS is pacific point and whisper white.  The embossing folder is called Vintage wallpaper.  The ribbon is the 5/8" Organza ribbon colored with my pacific point marker.  I made the flower using the blossom bouquet triple layer punch and a glitter brad.

Now I need to get some retirement cards done and I'm having trouble coming up with an idea for them.  I hope everyone had a good weekend, now its time to get back to work.  I am starting to count down the days until summer break, I can't wait!!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by:)

I love a good sketch challenge to take ONE of the stressors out of all the decision making around making a card. I mean, we have so many cool things it's so hard to choose! This card is stunning. I love your watercolor technique and your dyed ribbon! so cool! Thanks for playing along with stamping 411 this week.
Steph ~ Very pretty card. I love the colors and the detail on your flowers. They really stand out!
This is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing it with us.

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.

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.

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.
