Roses In The Winter...

Here is another card inspired by "Lauraly". Her card was just amazing and so beautiful!!! This is my first attempt for the "Cracked Glass" technique.

Stamps: French Script, Roses in the Winter and Short & Sweet
Paper: Rose Red, Regal Rose and Olive Mulberry paper
Ink: Rose Red, Regal Rose and Old Olive
Acessories: Water spritzer, Ribbon and Silver cord

***This card took a while to make, but well-worth it!

Bundled in Pink...

Pretty in Pink

So Saffron

Almost Amethyst

I created this card from a favorite layout of mine. My inspiration came from Laurie who happens to be the "Featured Stamper" today over at Splitcoast. The layout of this card came from "Lauraly". I visit her gallery everyday and just LOVE her work!!! Her Blog is fabulous as well!

Instructions: I cut both large circles out with my Coluzzle. To make the scallops on the White circle, I used my corner rounder punch. I used my corner rounder to make a scalloped edge on the right as well. The flowers on the side were done with my flower punch. I also stamped my image and traced with my glue pen. Then sprinkled the image with dazzling diamonds.

Thanks for visiting!

This is for sketch challenge SC134 on SCS. The card still measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Cut the cardstock 4.25" x 8.5" Fold to make a 4.25" square.Use any shape and size you wish for the topper. Construct your card (topper to 4.25 square base) so it’s 4.25 X 5.5”. I used my cutter for my length of card guide.


I love this set "Priceless"! I made this layout in different colors. Pretty in Pink with Regal Rose. Soft Sky and Blue Bayou.

Which one do you like?

Card Challenge CC121

This is for Card Challenge CC121 on Splitcoaststampers. My husband had to work today, so I have been stamping all day. I am catching up on swaps and weekly challenges on SCS.
The card is made with Chocolate Chip, layered with Pretty in Pink. I used my NEW "Flower Filled" stamp set and punched out the flowers with my NEW punch box. The mini flowers were done with a punch I got at Target in the $1 spot, What a deal!!!
I used my heat gun to curl the ribbon at the ends. ***Be careful it only needs a little heat.
