I did a set of these in different colors. The green makes me think of mint ice cream and the pink of bubblegum ice cream- which I used to get all the time as a kid!
Ice cream cone and sentiment are from the Honeycomb Happiness set from Stampin Up. I also used some cute sequins from Paper Sweeties.
Used a sentiment from Stampin Up's Trust God set. Die cut cross from Taylored Expressions.
Background is embossed on vellum and sewn onto cardstock. Some layers of burlap and lace at the bottom.
This was another idea I took off of Pinterest.
Hello friends! Here's another card I copied from Pinterest...really love this one! I used the Fun Stamper's Journey Newsprint stamp for my background again. Stampin Up's Butterfly Basics for the rest. Colors are Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe. I used a watercolor brush to color the flowers.
Since I haven't posted in such a long time, here is something I've had done for a while and just haven't gotten around to sharing yet. Maybe it will serve to get me back in the swing of things.
I lifted this one from an idea on Pinterest. I used Stampin Up You're My Type, and a Fun Stamper's Journey Newsprint stamp.
Welcome everyone! My blogging has seen some serious neglect the last few months. Alas, it's not for lack of activity here in my studio, just too many other things on my plate! I am determined to get back into the swing of things and start posting on a more regular basis.
On with the challenge! Come join us over at House of Cards.
I made a pastel colored card this month which I usually don't have much luck with. For some reason pastels just don't speak to me, but I like how this one came out. I chose to use a pretty pre-printed vellum (which also happened to have a copyright printed on it from 2000!) It feels good to finally use something I've had that long!
What are some of your oldest supplies? Maybe it's time to dig them out and put them to good use! That's just my personal challenge to you this week...if you join in our House of Cards challenge be sure to use vellum or acetate on your card. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Happy April everyone! March sure seemed to fly by, and it's time once again for a new challenge at House of Cards. You can use the colors above and/or script for your creations this time...have fun with it! Here's what I made:
I made the background by covering some cardstock with a script washi tape, then using a die to cut out the leaves. So easy to do, and a fun and different technique using washi tape. What do you think?
