New Cards

I had a few hours to myself in my craft room yesterday so I took advantage of it.

The first card uses stamps by Inkadinkado. I colored the image with my Copic markers and was actually happy with my blending for the first time. The card needed a little something so I added a few feathers that I picked up in the clearance section at Michael's.

The second card starts out with Papertrey Ink white cardstock. I used some Provo Craft deco-edge scissors (the $1.99 ones at Michael's) for a little more interest and then I used Berry Sorbet cardstock from PTI on the decorated edge. Next I used PTI's Spring Moss, Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, and Lavender Moon inks with some stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry called Pretty in Pink. They are individual rubber stamps that can create such pretty floral/leaf designs. The sentiment is from Butterfly Kisses and the butterflies are made from a Martha Stewart punch in Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, and Lavender Moon.

The third card was a PTI weekly challenge, following a sketch given online and some color guidelines. We were to use any PTI stamps, kraft as a base, and Lavender Moon as one of our colors. I used the small lady bug from Little Lady on my squares and mounted them on larger squares of Summer Sunrise paper. On the Lavender Moon paper background I used the coordinating ink to stamp some of the flowers from Honey Bees. The ribbon on the side is Summer Sunrise in satin and the flowers/brad are from my stash but I don't remember who makes them.

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Thanks for looking.

My best friend had her babies last week so I've been spending some time visiting with them instead of stamping. I'll be back with more as soon as I can.
