Nope, no white card stock on this creation. I made this one at my friend Beckie’s house. Simple and cute, don’t you think? Squares of designer paper, a little bow and a gorgeous button. The sentiment is from the Nature’s Postage stamp set by Mark’s Finest Papers.
Rounds seems to be in the spotlight lately. This card incorporates another circle.
I cut the circle from white, then stamped the poppies repeatedly around the circle using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloring with Copic markers: R14, R17, YG63, G24, E18. I then stamped the sentiment onto that main panel. I backed that circle with the scalloped circle cut from black. I used just part of the embossing folder to emboss just that bit of flourish on the right side of the card.

Thanks for looking.
I created this card for two SCS challenges: The colors are one of them and the shape is the other. Does it look like a dodge ball? hee hee hee Well, a very bejeweled dodge ball maybe and those scallops would make for some crazy bounces.
The card base is kraft card stock, cut/embossed using a Spellbinders Grand Big Scalloped Circles die. I then cut another of the same shape from vanilla and stamped the pansies with navy ink and clear embossed. I colored those with Copic markers. I then stamped the pansies again onto the cherry cobbler cs and clear embossed before cutting out and popping up onto the stamped image. I added jewels to the centers of the flowers and at each scallop. I then added the seam binding bow.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
The poppies are inked with Vintage Photo distress ink and stamped onto vanilla card stock and clear embossed before coloring with Copic markers Y08, Y11, Y13, G24, G28. I then over-stamped it using the crackle background which was also inked with the vintage photo ink and stamped off once. I then tore the edge of the poppies panel and sponged the edges. The strip of dp was added to the card front, then the poppies panel adhered over the top before embossing with the Cuttlebug Textile Texture folder and sponging all the edges and lightly running the sponge over the whole thing to catch the high spots of the embossing. I scrunched and sponged the seam binding before adding it to the image panel.
Thanks for taking a peek!

This card is a 5-1/2” square, a size I don’t often create, but I wanted to use this gorgeous butterfly die and it is LARGE, so needed a bigger card.
The card front is Old Olive cs. I then added a square of Webster’s Pages. The beautiful new sentiment from Rubbernecker is stamped onto a piece of vellum and the top and bottom edges of that are torn. To attach it to the card I hid the adhesive behind the strip of pink DCWV Mariposa card paper. I used that same paper to cut/emboss the butterfly which is the Spellbinders Fanciful Flight die. I also added the Fleur de Lis Accent border again using the green card stock.

I wanted to try this color combo on another card, so I created this one:
I think I started channeling my friend Kittie. wink wink
First I stamped the chicken wire bg using brown ink, then I inked, off-stamped the leaf vine and stamped several times. Next I inked the stamp again and stamped two more times with full strength ink and then clear embossed. This really gave the vine a lot more dimension.Then came the Kittifying where I added the punched fronds and then the brown flowers. I added stickles to the centers of the flower. I also added the flourish from using Spellbinders Fleur de Lis accents to the lower corner. That panel is matted with brown before adding to the green card. The image is stamped with brown ink onto vanilla card stock, then cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels ten and I stamped through the die using the same leaf vine stamped off once. I added markers and AtYou spica pens to the edge of the sentiment panel and popped it up onto the card front. A small bow of ribbon and it was finished.
In case you can't read the sentiment, it says: Sorrow looks at yesterday
Worry looks at today
Faith looks at tomorrow

I really like the new stamp set – All Aboard – released by Mark’s Finest Papers this month. This scene stamp can be colored and looks really wonderful, but I used it today by simply stamping it with the brown ink and cutting into the one inch tiles. I then mounted them just a bit away from each other onto a green square and then embossed that with the Sizzix bricked folder. I then sponged a little more of the brown ink on to distress and bring out the embossed brick pattern.
That square is mounted onto the brown. The card front is vanilla, but I smudged it so had to distress it by sponging. Trust me, it was a good boo boo as it really looks better. I then added the tracks at the bottom of the card and the sentiment. I wanted a little ribbon or something on the bottom, but ribbon just didn’t look right, so I stamped some twill tape with another stamp from the set - the rail road crossing stamp, knotted it, and attached to the tracks.
Thanks for stopping by once again. Please come back soon.

I just love this cute little train by Mark’s Finest Paper from the new set called All Aboard. I like using just one color on white for a very simple yet striking look.
I stamped the train using Barn Door Distress ink, then I masked it and stamped the tracks all across the card. The top of the card front is embossed with the Cuttlebug Diamonds in the Rough folder to coordinate with the design on the train. The sentiment was easily curved to create a smoke like look coming from the engine. I added a length of ribbon (also from MFP) and there you have it.
I also stamped the tracks on the inside of the card. It adds such a nice touch.

to you? It does to me.
This color and the new background stamp from Rubbernecker really remind me of Delft Blue China. I'm lovin' it.
I stamped the bg image using Chipped Sapphire ink onto white card stock then cut into 1" squares and attached to the white card front. The bottom of the card is punched with the MS Arch Lattice punch and I put a strip of the stamped bg on the inside of the card to show through. The sentiment is a new one from Rubbernecker also called Happy Thoughts and is stamped with the same ink onto white cs and cut/embossed with a Spellbinders oval die. Behind that (you have to look closely) is vellum cut with Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two. I added the ribbon bow and ~ ta da!
