Purple Painted Blooms!

I played with a new stamp set and coordinating die set from My Favorite Things.  I visited the MFT store in Florida last week.  What an awesome place.  Here is my card for sketch challenge for the MFTWSC 372.  I used the stitched blooms stamps and colored them with Copic markers.  A bit of glitter pen and Nuvo drops accent add a bit of shine.  Love the bright purple colors.


Painted Flowers!

I tried a different card sketch lay out for this card.  It worked for the Viva La Verve February card sketch.  I like adding a visual interest focal point and this time is was the  paper doily. The painted flowers were from Art Gone Wild designed by Catherine Scanlon.  I love her bold flowers and have several of her stamps.  Always nice to have a card ready for any occasion.  I stenciled the background using Distress Oxide ink.


Sending Valentine Hugs!

I love making cards and paper projects for Valentine’s Day!  I already had my cards ready to mail, but I kept finding new ideas to try.  I was inspired to try this card layout after watching a video featuring this technique.  Here is my try at using some new Distress Oxide inks in three colors and some stamped swirls.  I might even add some sparkles yet.  Then I found the weekly card sketch challenge from My Favorite Things #MFTWSC370.  I die cut the heart, placed the inked piece behind it and then added the die cut word and word banner.  cut out heart.jpg
