    For my card, I stamped and water colored both of the images  ( Light of Life and Sweet Friendship) and used my out of the box Nestie technique to die cut it using a Spellbinders labels 18.  I added an extra cut out lantern on top of the base image for a little dimension.  On the frame, I cut the inside out and attached the quote  (from Spread Light) behind it.

    The top background was done with a Cuttlebug distressed stripe embossing folder. I inked the top side of the folder using the Memento inks before I ran it through the Grand Calibur.  On the bottom, I stamped the Honeycomb Background on the dk brown c/s w/ the cocoa ink. It reminded me of chicken wire and I thought that would fit in w/ my rustic looking card. Two screw head brads complete the 4.25 x 5.50 card.

  • Nautical Vignette

    I loved today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC324) site and I was so happy to make a sample for Stef! I chose This for my inspiration. Instead of the beautiful colors they used, I just went w/ a more distressed look but I really loved the triple vignette layout.

    All images are Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the lighthouse twice and selected different areas of it and also the mighty sea scene. I used circle dies to cut them out and for the maroon frame, I used two sizes of circle dies to cut out the “porthole” frames.

    I stamped portions of the hymn on the crackled looking dp and distressed the edges w/ a tool and also w/ the tea dye ink. The netting was added on the left and the finished card fits in a #10 business envelope.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • 2 Birds, 1 Ball

    Fun challenge on Splitcoast today! Make your own backgrounds (F4A85)!

    The weekend is almost here and some of you are probably planning on a friendly golf game. The only golf I’ve ever played is miniature, but there are a lot of golfers in my family. So I think this would be the perfect masculine birthday card for one of them. All except my aunt Mary, that it is, lol. She LOVES to play golf. You could use it for other occasions, but I used the Above Par Birthday Greeting on the inside.

    This golfer reminds me a little of my husband. A long time ago, in a city far, far way,  we lived in a partially finished subdivision and he was out in front practicing his swing. He used to hit balls across the several unfinished streets and pay neighbor kids to shag the balls. So he’s out there one day and my daughter and I are on the couch in the living room. All of a sudden, there is a big CRASH, my glasses fly off my face and this golf ball lands about 3 inches in front of the tv. I wish I had a picture of the look on his face. When he shanked that ball, it hit the curb across the street and bounced back through the front window of our house. I guess if he had hit it any harder, he’d have hit two birds w/ one ball. Me and the tv, lol.

    All images are DRS Designs. For my self made backgrounds, I used a little stack of pigment inks that comes in coordinating colors to stamp the Golf word repeatedly. I also used it to make the narrow woven plaid strip. Golfer Duff was colored with markers and given a little out of the box treatment.The finished card is 4.25 x 5.5.

    Thanks so much for looking!
