The inspiration for this card came from the current CASology challenge, carnival theme, and a tutorial I watched by Jennifer McGuire: Distress Ink Bleed. It looked like fun, and I gave it a try on this card. I would have liked more of the blue on the stamped image, but didn't want to redo it. So I added a blue accent in the twine. I cut the banner from burlap paper, what a cool product that is! And I received a pin from a friend on this button treatment. Loved the look and thought it would be great on this card.
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Stamping!
Supplies: Paper: white, silver glitter, light blue Accessories: merry and snowflake framelits and square lattice embossing folder
I have been seeing a lot of tutorials on using die cut inlays. I decided to give it a try. I really like the look, but I don't think it could be a card to mass produce for the holidays. The framelits left a mark when I cut the images out so I decided to emboss the blue and white to cover up those marks. Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Stamps: Flower Shop, Papertrey mixed messages Paper: GKD heavy base weight kraft, Basic Grey Lemonade 6x6 paper pad, white Ink: white craft ink, versamark, Memento: love letter, rose bud, bahama blue, tangelo, cantelope Accessories: Martha Stewart tag punch, ribbon, Lawn Fawn twine, paint brush, white detail embossing powder, dimensionals
When I looked through the featured stamper's gallery this card caught my eye. As I read the description and saw that she used a white wash technique, I was inspired. I haven't tried this technique before and I really like the soft look and contrast it has on the kraft paper. I made the following changes to my card, a different flower, my sentiment is on a tag, I matted it with a patterned paper, and I added an assortment of colors to my flowers to match my patterned paper. This was a fun card to make! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone! I cannot believe I have not posted in so long. I seem to be a Holiday only stamper this year. Life is busy. But I made some time today to make some Valentines. This is the first, and it is for the featured stamper challenge on SCS. I cased this card. I changed the colors and that was about it, I loved it just the way it was! Off to make some more Valentines. Happy Stamping!

Congrats to the featured stamper on SCS, One4Joy. What a fun gallery! I chose this card to CASE. I kept my card white, changed the orientation of the heart, and used a die cut for the heart. I think this heart is so pretty, and wanted it to be the highlight of this card. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello!!! Long time no stamp! For this term of the CAS Design Team on SCS Jen asked CAS Design alumni members to make samples for the weekly challenges. This week is was my turn. I love this wreath, it is so pretty on it's own. So I simply added some gold gems, silver cording, and a sentiment. Thanks so much for stopping by!
