Lots of Flowers

Hello everyone,
  I've been on a flower kick lately and have been making lots of my own using all kinds of technics that others on the web have shared and my own.    Some flower shapes have been cut on my Cricut, using  small punches, or hand cut, or cut with the new Tim Holts flower die.  I always use Glimmer mist and Stickles.  I love how you can take a paper color that you don't like and make it into a color to die for, or do the same with a flower you have already made and change it's color to fit a different project. The last two flowers are on a project I'm working on, and will post soon.   Please leave comments and let me know what you think.

My Pink Samper Color Challenge

Hello everyone,
  I hope you are all having a good Sat.  I saw this challenge and decided this was a good time to make a card for my brother.  We live over 500 hundred miles apart but he is always in my heart. The trophy cut is from EDPD and the word brother is cut from  PSB, and was welded and then I made the shadow and welded that too.  Enjoy.

A Pretty Bookmarker

Hello everyone,
   I was in the process of reading a book and realizer  I needed something pretty, and handmade to mark my book.  I used a premade bookmark and inked the edges with weathed wood distress ink. I didn't like the look so I covered it with brick red distress ink and used a Tim Holtz applicator to apply this color on the top of the whole bookmarker.  I then stamped images from SU with SU basic brown ink.  I stamped one setiment with vintage photo distess ink.  I punched the bottom with a scallop dot punch from EK Success.  Lastly I took diamond stickles and smeared over the whole bookmark, and when that dried I took glossy accents and smeared that on and let that dry.  I then took a piece of Pretty in Pink satin ribbon from SU and added that with a piece of cream embroidery floss.  I love the way it sparkles and shines.

My Pink Stamper NSD #4 I Like You The Least


I used a cart I seem to hardly ever use, Zoobaloo. To my surprise I think I have truly under valued this one. I cut the birds in a nest twice(yellow,blue) and the shadow, all at 2 1/2 in. I edged puched GP white with an EK punch, and layered on SU Certainly Celery ribbon. The DP is Martha Stewart. I stamped on the ribbon with Stazon ink, the die inks bleed.

My Pink Stamper NSD #5 Teacher Appreciation


I decided to do a notepad for my daugthers teacher. I used Prima DP and solid green, called The First Blush Collection. I used a Hero Arts Stamp on PTI vintage white card stock. I colored image with Copics. I cut the ribbon tag with nestibility die.

My Pink Stamper NSD #3 Thinking Out Side the Box


For this card I cut a piece of acrylic in a tag shape with the Cricut using the WWL cart. I then stamped on it with Stazon ink in purple. I turned the tag over and colored with Copics(B05,Y15). The DP is Martha Stewart and ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I also used a dot embossing folder on the white GP card stock.
