A Country Card

February.18.2010

I finally got some Ippity stamps this week.

My crafty friend, Rachel, also sent me a great big package of paper just right for cards.

So you know I had to use it right away.

Aren’t those the cutest papers?

I just had to put some inside too.

But now that I look at it, I wish I would have inked the paper inside too.

Oh well.

I Love Earth Love

January.21.2010

I was talking to my crafty internet friend, Katy early today.

I gave her an assignment.  I told her she either had to make a baby card using her Basic Grey chipboard stickers or she could make a Valentine.

Haha.

I’m the boss.

She told me I had to make a birthday card and I had to use my Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper pack.  I wanted it soooo bad, then I got it for Christmas and hadn’t opened it before tonight.

When I was blog surfing today I saw a sketch challenge over on the Limelight blog.  They were also trying to get everyone to incorporate canvas into their projects.

So here’s what I made:

I cut that piece of Ranger sticky-back canvas out with my handy Cuttlebug and the Label 4 Nesties.  Then I inked it up with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink.

After that I stamped the border with a Waltzingmouse stamp using some new Papertrey Ink ink that I just got today.  I love it!  Then I stamped the flower image from Unity Stamp Co. with some brown Memento ink.  I colored the little leaves in with a Copic marker.  It bled a little bit, but you can’t really tell.

The sentiment is from Through the Trees by Papertrey Ink (I HAD to play with my new toys!)

As I did in the last card I shared, I put a sentiment inside this one too.  I stamped the Unity flower again and then added a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages by Papertrey Ink.

Just so you know, I love this card!  LOL  Aren’t the colors so calm and soothing?

Can it be true?

Did you think I fell off the face of the earth?  Quit making cards?  Just plain disappear?  Really?

Well no, I’m still here.

I blame it on a combination of the holidays and pure laziness for my lack of blog postings.

But I have 2 cards to share tonight.

Let me know what you think.

Just wanted to mention two stamp companies that I am totally loving at the moment:  Papertrey Ink and Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I have had this Sassafrass paper pad practically forever!  Special thanks to Katy for helping me think of a sentiment.
