Flower Fancy

Playing the Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC122) with Karen over at the sweetest thing as I get back into the swing of things.

Creative Tips:

1. The flowers were stamped using the misting technique. Color your stamps with Stampin Write Markers and mist a little water before stamping. Produces a great watercolor effect.

2. The Perfect Details Texturz Plate added a great texture for the background. Looks a little like a trellis.

3. The Spritzer Tool creates a subtle aged vintage look to any card. Just slipped in a Soft Suede Stampin Write Marker and squeezed the barrel. It passed air across your marker spraying a fine mist of spattered color.

Happy Father’s Day

Created my first easel card for my son to give his father today. The picture was taken last summer on a mission trip to Lumberton, Georgia.

Creative Tips:

1. Add extra punch to your stamped greeting by layering with a different color card stock.

2. The Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon is soft and ties effortless bows.

3. Create a subtle background on your solid color card stock by stamping a tone on tone image.

Clearly For You

Creative Tips:

1. You can change the Clearly for You stamped image with a little layering. The butterfly was stamped, trimmed using the Paper Snips, and mounted with a Glue Dot.

2. The folded ribbon technique is easy and great when mailing your card. Cut several pieces, fold each in half, and seal open ends. Stagger and attach to base using Glue Dots.

3. The stamped image fit nicely in the Extra Large Oval Punch.
