Timeless Tuesday

Hello everyone!

I have two cards to show you tonight... they are both for Timeless Tuesday.  This is my first time playing here. I must say I am so excited to play along because I have never done or even heard of the ' Dryer Sheet Technique'! Here is the video I watched to show you how. So keep those old dryer sheets!!!!  It is so lovely!!


So here are my cards...

For this card above, I used Flourish stamps. Spellbinders labels dies. Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Papertrey Ink cardstock. Copic markers. Scattered straw distress ink, Hero Arts black ink. Ribbon and pearls from Michaels. Ultra fine glitter.
For this second card all the products are the same except the floral image is a stamp from Heartfelt Creations.

I love the fuzzy feel to these cards when you use dryer sheets.  You really must try this! So much fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Thinking of You

Happy Monday to you!

I was able to make quite a few cards over the weekend but only had time to post them today!

I want to start by showing you the card I made for The Paper Players.  The theme is CAS in navy, white and silver!
Looking at the snowflakes on the logo, I was really tempted to make a snowy Christmas card. But as I was searching throughmy stamps I came across a set I had not yet used. It's like a surprise gift!
The stamps are from Flourishes. I used royal blue ink from Color Box. The cardstock is Papertrey Ink.
I drew my frame with an American Crafts metallic marker. Awesome marker for anyone who needs one. The ink just glides on so smoothly! I bought it in AC Moore along with a gold one.  The gems are from Michaels.

So simple!

Thanks for stopping by today!

You Inspire Me

Hello,

How are you today?  We are all fine here...just dealing with some cold damp weather.  Todays card is for The Play Date Cafe. The colors this week are so rich and gorgeous!


My card looks like this...
Too much white space?
I'm not really sure. I love it, though!
I am also entering this into Moxie Fab for the 'Pay It Forward' challenge.

I really love the Hearfelt Creations stamps!!! They stamp so beautifully!!!
To color the flowers and watering can I used distress stains in vintage photo, fired brick and wild honey and peeled paint distress ink. I stamped the image and sentiment with Color Box black. Gems are from Michaels.

Thanks for your lovely comment!
