Friends are like Flowers

 Hi there!


I'm up today on the Technique Junkies blog, and am sharing a pretty card using some stamps from the January release.

Pat came out with two coordinating items this month, and I think I will be using them a lot! 'Lavender Frame' and 'Lavender Friendship Sentiments, set of 4' are beautiful to work with. The sentiments are lovely when used as stand-alone stamps on a pretty background, or when used with the 'Lavender Frame'.

I'll be sharing 2 more cards using these stamps this month, and 2 different looks for them. For this card, I simply stamped the frame and sentiment in brown ink on Kraft cardstock, matted with brown cardstock, and adhered to a Kraft card base.


This was my first card that was shared last week.
What a difference between the look and feel of each!

Check back on the 27th - I'll have card #3 to share!

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Very Small Word

Hi there!

I'm up today on the Technique Junkies blog, and am sharing two fun cards, with some stamps from the January release.

Our fur babies are so precious to us! I love this beautiful sentiment 'Dog' - truer words were never spoken. When I'm having a bad day, our little Sophie seems to know that I need a special cuddle. My best friend just lost her special fur-child, a beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback, and this month's release came just when I needed to make her a special card.

Here's what I made:

For this card, I used a new release background stamp 'Falling Confetti Hearts', which was stamped with pink ink. The 'Dog' sentiment was layered over a pretty, ornate die cut.


For this card, I used a stencil and some blue Diamond Izink for the background. A small panel was covered with the Izink as well, to use as a mat for the sentiment. Have I mentioned how much you 'need' some of the Izinks????


I'm happy that you stopped by today!

There are Friendships

Hi there!

I'm up today on the Technique Junkies blog, and am sharing a pretty card using some stamps from the January release.

Pat came out with two coordinating items this month, and I think I will reach for them over and over. 'Lavender Frame' and 'Lavender Friendship Sentiments, set of 4' are beautiful to work with. The sentiments are lovely when used as stand alone stamps on a pretty background, or when used with the 'Lavender Frame'.

Here's what I made:

I'll be sharing 3 more cards using these stamps this month, and 3 different looks for them. For this card, I simply stamped the frame and sentiment in brown ink, colored with copic markers, and 'drew' a blue frame using a marker around the four edges of the panel, prior to adhering to a dark blue card base.


Check back on the 22nd - I'll have card #2 to share!

Friends

Good morning!

I'm sharing a pretty card today that I have created with a beautiful sentiment from a new set 'Lavender Friendship Sentiments, Set of 4', from Technique Junkies. I've also used a new background stamp 'Falling Confetti Hearts' for the strip at the bottom of the card. A small piece of silver striped washi tape finishes this quick and easy card nicely!


So glad you stopped by my blog today!

Happy Galentine's Day

  Hello Friends!

I'm up today on the Technique Junkies blog!  I'm sharing two fun cards, with some stamps from the January release. Don't forget that these new release items are 15% off until January 8th!

We all have those special 'gal' friends in our lives that need a bit of happy mail on Valentine's Day, right? These fun stamps will help you create for your 'gal' friends!

Here's what I made:

This card features a fun new background stamp, 'Kitty Love'.  The background was made by swiping on some Speckled Egg, Kitch Flamingo, and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Inks directly onto the stamp.  The sentiment 'Happy Galentine's Day' was stamped in Dusty Concord, matted, and the focal panel was matted and assembled.


This card also features 'Happy Galentine's Day'. The background panel is the 'Heart Fade Stencil'. Some dark pink Izink Diamonds was smeared over the stencil, and allowed to dry. Next, the sentiment was stamped in red ink, matted, and adhered to the focal panel. Last, I used a die cut heart over the panel and sentiment to finish the creation.



So glad you stopped by today!
