PTI Stamp A Faire 1960's Challenge/ Layered Stencils


Rad Flowers
Papertrey Ink Stamp A Faire
1960's Challenge Layered  Stencils

I used the Beautiful Blooms Die II #1 Flower to take center stage. The flower just looked  better resting on the piece of  paper Birch Wood. I took creative edge and stamped the sentiment on the flower.
Stamp set used was Sketched Shapes for both sentiment and pattern on image. All PTI paper and ink. Those little dots are beige Candy Bonbon.

Retro Sketches #75

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
 Anything Goes

I made this birthday card keeping in mind a second cousin who just loves the scooters, more Italian Vespa style (Roman Holiday anybody?). I know she will love it! All Paper Smooches stamps here (Spiffy Scooters). A bit of Webster's Pages paper on the bottom, and a balloon die cut from My Favorite Things. The scooter is colored in with Copic markers and cut out.

S'More Love



CAS- ology
Week #55
Camp


For my camp I thought I would cook up some s'mores for a summer love. You can never have enough love. For this OLC card I did a bit a shadowing to add some depth to the marshmallow and chocolate bar with a Copic T1 marker. They are stamped out in PTI Dark Chocolate Ink. All the hearts are stamped in Memento Love Letter Red.

Hopscotch Hi


OWH Sketch 183
Here is todays sketch challenge. I used some Basic Grey Hopscotch Paper. Those tiny triangles caught my eye and decided to play them up. I pulled my triangle die cut and only  used a snippet of it on the side of the card. The small piece of paper does contain all patterns of paper in the larger sections if you looed really close! Have great Sunday.

Happy Crafting
