Garden Greetings



I want to share with you my latest creation. This card was made for the Late Night Stampers (LNS) group color challenge (#14). The colors are Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip. I love how quickly this card came together.

The Chocolate Chip images are all embossed using Crystal Clear EP. The smaller flower in the center of the large flower is adhered with a pop dot. the ends are curled to give the flower more dimension. The bottom of the Sahara Sand CS was punched using the Eyelet Border punch and then stamped with a sentiment from Heard from the Heart. Then the card was finished off with a piece of chocolae chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. TFL.

Happiness

A little plain, but I just love these papers!


All Cracked Up!

I participated in a Contraband challenge with one of my groups. The objective was to use a stamp that we have not seen before (anything non Stampin’Up) and mail it to my assigned partner. After going through my stash of non-SU stamps, I decided to find something different. I was Blog surfing and there I learned about Digital Images and how to use them. I found this “Chick Egg” digital stamp over at Little Paper Shops and quickly purchased it.

The great thing about the digital images is that once you pay a very small fee, the stamp is available for you to download and save to your computer. You can begin to use it right away. What I really like about the digital stamp is that you can size it to your liking. I did learn that if you are going to watercolor your image, you must be careful not to smear the printer ink. I did that several times before I got it right!

Anyway, as you can see, everything on this card is SU with exception of the digital stamp. I added Dazzling Diamond to the egg to give it a “dazzling” effect. TFL
