Here is another card inspired by one I found in the Verve Stamps Gallery. I embossed the “frame” with a rectangular Nestabilities die. The flowers were colored with markers. The centers of the flowers are from a couple of inexpensive bags of gem stones I found at Wal-Mart. I used Liquid Glass to glue them to my card.
Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Cocoa cardstock; Cocoa ink pad; Sunflower, Goldrush, and Garden Green markers; Verve Stamps Many Blessings stamp set; Gem stones from Wal-Mart; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Rectangles set.
This second card is my take on FTL #113 on the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. It’s a great, classic layout that can either be dressed up or dressed down. My Simple Saturday card is a dressed down version. The only “extra” thing I did was sponge some ink around the edges of stamped images and the card base, adding depth to what otherwise would have been a pretty “flat” card.
Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Goldrush, and Cocoa cardstock; Cocoa, Goldrush, Sunflower, Autumn Terracotta, and Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distressing Ink stamp pads; Verve Stamps Autumn Splendor and Happy Fall stamp sets; Round sponges.
A Slice of Life: There will be no more stamping for this girl until she cleans up her corner. It’s to the point where I have to jump in and jump out of my chair, which, I’ve learned in the past, can be hazardous. Even if I had the athletic prowess to leap into place, there is less than a 6 by 6-inch square of workplace left on my desk. Thus, I am off to clean up my corner and a few other hot spots in my tiny abode. With some fun-looking sketch challenges offered in the blogosphere, I am hoping to get back to my corner later in the day.
Have a great Saturday, my friends, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
