Earth~with her 1000 Voices...

I needed a card for an Ordination...I wanted to keep it simple and appropriate for the occasion. I pulled out this Wordsworth stamp I picked up at a LSS and paired it with a designer paper from Paper Salon. Love this colour combo!
I cuttlebug'd the paper with allegro folder, layered the sentiment and sponged the edges, tied a satin ribbon layered with organdy...added some dew drops on the corner,
loved how it turned out! what do you think?

Thanks for looking :)

Stair-stepping Christmas!

I had seen these folded cards being uploaded onto the SCS gallery in the last week or so...imagine my delight when I saw one IRL and could copy the measurements! I love stamping friends...Thanks Joyce and Krista! I used SU's Holiday Treasures DSP and cut into it...I love paper!
Here is a side view of the card...This card came together very quickly with the measurements handy and a card in front of me to look at. Love this stamp set from SU and layered the poinsettias and stamped it in olive to create the leaves.

Materials used: Christ is Born set, Holiday Treasures 12x12 dsp, ticket corner punch, naturals white cs

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

This card came together very quick once I decided which stamp set to ink. I love this set...can I say it is a favourite? I haven't used it for a looong time!
I used stickles on the flower and wasn't sure if I like the outline look. I think for the next time I would spread the stickles all over...what do you think??

Sunday, October 12, 2008 You from Me...

The challenge was to use a stamp set you haven't inked...well, here is mine!! I have hung onto this past sell-a-bration set for two years!!! Gasp...I had to trim and mount it before I could ink the image.
I love the outline images in this set, so festive and fun! I coloured the images in using prismas and gamsol, cut into the stamped image with my nestabilities, embellished with ribbon, dew drops and clear stardust pen.
This card is going to one of my pen pals on SCS...hope she likes it!

Materials used: SU Send a Celebration and Best Yet(hostess set),Not quite Navy,Baja Breeze,Naturals White CS, Amy Butler K&Co Lotus DP, ribbon from my stash,Dew Drops, stardust pen and Stampendous bling stickers.

Let's add more Pink...

These card bases are K&Co. a bargain I found at Michaels some time ago for $1. Can't beat that! I made several versions using this, adding just the coordinating cardstock, ribbon and stamps.

There you have it, with some images from MFT's Say Charge! I used SU's tag punch and layered it. The May Arts Ribbon always makes a wonderful addition to cards. Did I say I love ribbon too? :)

Thanks for looking!
