Cranes - LIM using scraps


Hi everyone... above is link to the Less is More challenge of using your scraps.  This is my second entry.  Guess I have lots of scraps.  Hmmm don't we all?  The bird stamp is an Inkadinkado stamp that I already had stamped on this white scrap. I layered it onto another purple scrap.  Then i found this blueish/purple scrap that was already embossed and fit perfectly.  Let me know what you think and have a great day!

Birds - LIM using scraps

Hello... Above is the link to the "Less is More" challenge.  This week it's using your scraps.  My scraps are the "grass" that the birds are standing on.  The birds are from my new Dylusions stamps by Dyan Reaveley.  Dylusions are one of my favorite companies.  I colored them with the new Tim Holtz Distress markers.  The great thing about these markers is you can color a large stamp with multiple markers.  Then you "HUFF" on it and it comes out beautiful, not all dried out like with other markers.  I have to say the picture of the card did not come out as well as I had hoped.  It's a lot darker in person.  Well that's it for today... let me know what you think.  XX

Butterfly card

Hello all.  Today i have a butterfly card.  I do like the way this one came out though i have to say there is not much stamping involved.  The top layer is K&Company 3D butterflies, put on a cream panel stamped with Stampin' up French Script, put on a black panel. The bottom layer is TH Kraft Resist butterfly panel on a black panel on a white card.  Ribbon and gems are from my stash.  Let me know what you think.  Have a great day.

Birthday Truck


Hello again everyone.  Today i am sharing with you a card i made for a guy friend.  I find, as i am sure you do too, that guy cards are not always easy to think up.  The truck stamp is one of Wendy Vecchi's Stampers Anonymous stamps.  The words are Hero Arts.  My background is made using various distress inks in brown, green, blue, red, orange and yellow.  Then i splattered it with water to give it an even more distressed look. I stamped the truck and words in distress Gathered Twigs ink.  To give some dimension to the card i added black buttons with string through the holes to the wheels.  The truck looked like it was floating in the air till i added the ribbon to look like a
road.   Then it was all put on on a dark brown card.  Hope you enjoy my card.  Let me know what you think.

Flower by Magenta

My card for today is a Magenta flower.  This is a sympathy card I made for a friend of mine who lost his father.  I stamped it in black and went around the edges with blue distress ink.  It's layered onto a white panel that I went down the sides with a push pin and the Tim Holtz ruler.  His ruler makes it so easy to do this.  Finally it's all put on a blue lined card with a black and white ribbon in between.  Let me know what you think.  Have a great day!
