I posted this card last year but I love it and decided to make a couple more again this year to send out to a couple of new friends. Can you tell me how I changed it slightly? I am also going to submit it into challenge #63 at Case Study. It is another cool site who offers weekly inspirational rubber stamping challenges.
The stamps and papers used to make this card where all from the retired stamp company The Angel Company.
Since this is the week before Halloween, I am going to have a week of Halloween projects. I will kick the week off with this witchy women. I love this witch from the Stampinbella line of stamps. I made her in mind for a submition into a marker challenge from 4 Crafty Chicks and a spooky challenge at Divas by Design. Both are very creative blogs that hosts weekly challenges. This week Crafty Chicks was devoted to coloring. I think my witch is just fabulous! I used DCWV cardstocks and Copic markers for coloring. I hi-lited her dress in several areas with Stickles. The photo doesn’t really pick up her sparkle. The sentiment “Best Witches!” is from Stampin’ Up! I plan on sending this card to my new friend Emily S. She was with me when I was coloring my witch.
I made this lovely earring and bracelet set and posted it my Etsy site. Please take a look and add a post here to tell me what you think.
I’m in the mood for love!
I’ve been making Valentine’s Day cards. I “love” this simple layered design. I mounted patterned scrapbook paper over textured cardstock and I used the retired stamp set Heart-itude from The Angel Company.
Thank goodness the month of May is over! I have been so busy that I haven’t had time to stamp. That is no way to live. 🙂 One must always take time to create. I plan to make June a month full of creativity. So check back often.
School officially ended this last Friday and I wanted to share with you a cute card that I made for my children’s teachers and cafeteria workers. I used the peacock stamp from The Angel Company’s Bird Cage set and stamped it randomly on purple cardstock with Pearlescent Purple Brilliance Dew Drop ink. I used the same ink and stamped the peacock on a piece of vanilla cardstock. On the lower left hand corner of the vanilla cardstock I stamped “thank you” from The Angel Company’s set Feel Better in Noir (Black) Palette Ink. I dragged the vanilla piece in the Pearlescent Purple ink and mounted on to a black piece of cardstock and then mounted both pieces to the purple card base. The Brilliance Dew Drop inks are gorgeous on light and dark colored paper. They really made this simple card design look elegant.
For the final touch I added this sweet chocolate treat inside the card along with my hand written message. It matched the paper perfectly.
