Hello and welcome to the blog today. I finally managed to create another card this weekend, and I kept it sweet and simple.

I started by stamping the outline flower from You are enough (Concord & 9th) in the bottom corner of a panel of Neenah cs and then used my MISTI to stamp the solid layers. For the first (largest) layer, I used second-generation stamping with Coral Cabana ink (CP Designs). For the second (smaller) layer I used first-generation stamping using the same ink. The sentiment is from Three amigos (Mama Elephant). I trimmed down my panel and mounted it to my cardbase after backing it with fun foam. To finish off, I added a few sequins (Studio Katia).

I'm playing at:

AAA Cards - #143 One corner + optional; flowers

Watercooler Wednesday - WWC228 Feminine Anything Goes

Sparkle's Forum - #117 No patterned paper

Time Out - #139 Inspired by words 
(I combined the flower and the happy)

Peace on Earth

Hello and welcome to the blog today. I'm popping in with a Christmas card that I created using mostly items from my UFO box.

I combined my previously created galaxy panel, die cut snowflake (SSS) and strip of embossed vellum with a sentiment strip that I created by heat embossing one of the bold sentiments from the In a Word: Grand Merry stamp set by Winnie and Walter in Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I used white Stickles to add a bit more sparkle to the background panel and the snowflakes.

Fin-tastic birthday

I'm back with my last card for today. What can I say? I've had a crafty weekend. Yay!

When I was doing my smooshing for my previous card, I also did some smooshing onto a panel of Strathmore watercolour card. The result was not pretty, but I managed to salvage a nice part for this CAS card. I used snippets of blue Core'dinations card to die cut some waves using a SSS die and to create a mat and then layered everything onto my Soft stone (PTI) card base using thin foam tape behind the waves and the whale's tale, which was die cut from the same Centura pearl card as the dolphin on my previous card. The sentiment (HA) was stamped using Navy ink (HA).

I'm playing at:

CAS Mix Up - Ombre, stamping +
