Daisy Inspiration

10 Sep

I don’t know about you, but I love Gerbera Daisies!  I especially love a mix of colors.  Today, I thought it might be fun to match some Stampin’ Up! ink to a bouquet of them.  What do you think…doesn’t it make you want to create?  I’d love to see what you  come up with!

My Baby is 21!

8 Aug

Darn, time flies!  Today, my son Christopher turns 21!  I decided to use the sketch challenge to create his birthday card.  What do you think?  I love using the Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy together with white to make a masculine card.

Here’s the sketch challenge:

Here’s my card:

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some celebrating to do with a wonderful birthday boy/man who will always be my baby!

Best Birds Card

3 Aug

I’m normally not a bird fan…in fact there have been a few bird stamps that have freaked me out!  But, I love this Best Birds Set!

And what’s even better….it has matching framelits.  No fussy cutting! (You’re welcome!)

Today over on SSINKspiration the designers are featuring Sympathy cards.  I thought this card would make a great sympathy card.

To color the bird I used my aquapainters and ink in the lid of the stamp pad.  For the background, I used the woodland embossing folder inked with crumb cake and just closed the crumb cake card stock inside.  I didn’t emboss it.

Make Your Own DSP

27 Jul

There are some great stamp sets that have stamps that just scream….”Use me for Backgrounds!”  Birthday Fiesta Is one of those! This is a great set and using that llama just makes me happy!

Today on SSInkspiration Blog, the designers have used stamps to create their own DSP (Designer Series Paper).  Here’s my contribution.   I used the twisted banner stamp to create my DSP.

Wedding Card with Sponge Brayer

22 Jul

I love the combination of Black and Silver and White.  I think it’s classy for weddings.  This card was actually pretty easy to do as I used the sponge brayer over top of the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper and magically the image appears….it’s wonderful!

To get the silver wording, I used versamark ink and silver embossing powder.  To keep the “shine” going I accented with the silver foil sheets and finally, tied off a bow with the 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and added a few rhinestone jewels.  Now all I need is a wedding to pop up!

If you’re in the mood for some more “shiny” cards, check out what the other designers have created today on the SSINKspiration Blog.
