Fun Day!

Hi all!

I have a very busy day ahead, so this will be a quick post. I made a couple of cards awhile back and never posted them. This first one uses Deborah's August CCC sketch. I liked the sketch and decided to make an extra card using it.

I used the Delicate Flower Flourish from Hero Arts. I tried looking it up on the Hero web sight with no luck. (I bought it at Michael's.) I colored the image in with Copics, and added some white highlights. The paper flowers were white and I colored them with Distress Inks.

This second card was inspired by Jacqueline. I have to admit that I've had the French Post stamp for quite awhile and never used it. I love the way Jacqueline uses this stamp! Here is my humble try at a collage card.

The other stamps used here are the Silhouette Fern and Silhouette Spray. The paper behind the stamping had a sort of crackled look to it. No idea where it came from.

I am heading to the new Target Field to watch the Minnesota Twins baseball game today! We are going with a bunch of friends, then out for the evening afterward! So excited to see this amazing new stadium! I've heard nothing but fabulous things about it. We are leaving a couple hours before the game just to have time to walk around, which everyone has recommended we do. I hope everyone's day is fun too! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Tiny Treat Bag

Hi ladies!

I just loved watching Lisa's video yesterday. She made the cutest little bags out of Hero Hues envelopes. I wanted to give it a try and I had so much fun making this one! Hopefully I'll find some time to make more of them. I love their tiny size!

I used the Graph Background for the base of the card and the little pumpkins are from the So Thankful clear set. The leaf is made out of a coffee sleeve (I learned that one from Virginia!) I used a new EK large leaf punch and added some shading with Distress Inks.

One more thing. Some of you have seen a few cards of mine in the Flickr pool, that I created using Alcohol Inks. Well, I have one more to show you. It's a bit different because I didn't use any stamping at all on this one. After using the inks on the background, I just added some cute stickers. It was really strange not doing any stamping, but fun to try something different. I added some Rock Candy Stickles to the flourish to give it a little sparkle.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Summer's Not Over Yet. . .

Hi everyone!

I'm having a difficult time saying goodbye to Summer. I will eventually have to get into Fall mode, but not just yet. The weather here has been so hot and humid again too. I'm also still struggling with my mojo, so I decided to get out the Alcohol Inks and play. I made the background for this card, using Sailboat Blue, Cloudy Blue and the Pearl Mixative. Then I stamped the Pattern Butterflies with StazOn black ink and added some white pearls. The sentiment is from this set.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice Tuesday!
