    Happy Saturday! I hope y’all are having a great weekend!

    I made this for today’s Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast. All images are Our Daily Bread designs and are new June releases. I stamped the psalm and cut it out w/ a rectangle nestie then punched the lower border and the corners. It’s attached to a baby blue panel and I added some faux pearls in the flower centers.

    The background was embossed w/ a CB folder and attached to blue then to a 5.5 x 4.25 (A2) white card. I’m terrible w/ ribbon but after a 20 minute struggle, I managed to tie this bow. I even used the bow easy. Ha ha, I know. I made a 1/2 inch faux brad and glued it to the center of my bow.

    Another fabulous inspiration site for today’s Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast.! After a lot of browsing, I picked this Party Tray.

    All images, embossing powders and adhesives are Sparkle N Sprinkle. For my card, I stamped and white embossed the rose image multiple times on water color paper, masking where needed. I wet the entire background and floated in reinker colors.

    I used darker colors on the two extra roses I embossed on a separate piece of w/c paper, and cut these two out. I partially cut some of the petals and layered this on top of the other image w/ foam tape for a little lift.

    The greeting was stamped w/ the pine ink and the lower edge punched. I added a trimmed off strip as the horizontal band and a faux brad.

  • ISC April Inspiration Challenge

    This month, ISC has an Inspiration Challenge for you! Betsy chose this wonderful picture for the inspiration piece. Don’t you just love the colors and images? Want to win a free sheet of ISC images? To be eligible to win, use the picture as your inspiration and create a card or other project using ISC images only, and link your creation to the ISC Blog by May 9th.


    And this is my version. I really picked up on the orange colors, the flower and butterflies. Although it may look like there are layers or cut outs, there’s really only one layer attached to the card, three punched butterflies and one die cut sentiment. I started with a piece of white c/s slightly smaller than my 4.25 x 5.5 (A2) white card. I stamped the medium and small Bush Flowers with black ink, masking when needed. I added just a touch of color by lightly swiping sponges w/ yellow, orange and pink inks haphazardly across the flowers. I colored over all of the petals w/ a VersaMark pen and clear embossed them. A few specks of embossing powder were spread out around the flowers, but I like the splatter look so I left them and even added a few more.

    Yellow, orange, pink, ginger and cranberry inks were then sponged over the entire piece and I used more of the darker colors around the flowers to add more contrast. The excess ink was wiped off of the clear embossed flowers. The script from Odd Findings was stamped over the top with ginger ink.  I stamped a butterfly from  Friends are Special using the yellow, orange and cranberry inks on a scrap of white then I used a butterfly punch. The punch didn’t exactly line up w/ the image, but I like it anyway.  I traced around it on a piece of white and cut the inside out, leaving just a white frame of the butterfly. I used this as my base to attach to the card and popped the butterfly up on top. I added two more small punched white butterflies and the sentiment (also from Bush Flowers). I edged the entire piece w/ a black marker and added a piece of cardboard underneath for a little dimension before attaching it to my card.
