Bonjour in color

Hello!  I’m participating in Neat and Tangled’s ‘little tangles’ challenge, which you can find here.   The challenge asks you to incorporate rainbow colors into your card which I did by creating my own background! Using the stamp set ‘Paris’, I stamped the little girl and the greeting in Memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah […]

Wood you be mine?

I just think these little images by Elena Roussakis for Neat and Tangled are adorable!  I used them previously on a series of holiday cards you can find here , here or here.  🙂  Super versatile! This card was made using ‘Lumberjack Love’ and ‘Falling Hearts’.  First I stamped the little scene and on an A2 […]

Welcome baby

Inspired by the Waffle Flower Photo Inspiration challenge I made a card for a friend’s new baby.  The inspiration for the card came from the soft pallet of blue, pink, yellow and green.  This card was made using the ink blending technique on Neenah card stock.  To start I masked the edges of my A2 […]

Oh Happy Day!

There is a pile of stamps on my desk that I can’t put away until I’ve made something with them.  This is the second card I’ve made using this gorjuss stamp, the other one is here.  Just.can’t.get.enough. 🙂 On an A2 panel I stamped my gorjuss image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped it […]
