Penny Black Garden...

Penny Black has some beautiful options...with a stamp set called Blooming Garden and this die called Field of Dreams.  For this image, I colored the stamp with markers and stamped on white cardstock, then cut with the die.  It cuts RIGHT on the edge of the image.  Beautiful results!



I like this asymmetrical layout with this paper.  It has become a popular layout online recently.

Supplies:
White Cardstock
Patterned paper from Authentique...Promise Two
Poppies stamp and die from Penny Black
Inks and greeting from Stampin' Up
Pearls from Zva Creative

Simple Tag (Prima Doll)

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink, and I have another Prima Doll project for you all.  It is just a very simple tag - this time I did a little paper piecing with her clothes (I felt like a little girl again.)



Here are the products I used.
  • Prima Doll Stamp
  • Authentique Paper – Abroad Collection “Away”
  • Glitz ‘Yours Truly’ 6 x 6 paper pack
  • Ribbon
  • Black pearls
Here are a couple of close-ups.




What I especially loved about this project was the sentiment, it comes from the top of the 12 x 12 Authentique paper - you know the part we usually trim off and throw away?  I have decided that from here on in I am going to check those strips of paper and cut off the sentiments/quotes and save them for my projects.

See you next time.

Joyful Easter


Happy Sunday! 
It's Ceal here (Yep I am back) to share an Easter card with you using supplies that can be found at A Scrap N Place.  The paper I used is from Authentique's Easter collection.  The dies are from two different companies, The basket is from Impression Obsession and the grass die along with the sentiment are from Sweet 'n Sassy. You know I love me some sequins so I used those as my eggs. I added some ribbon and a doily to finish it off.

Butterfly season


I used the same lovely butterfly from Impression Obsession again on this week's card. 


I am loving working with that die.  It cuts beautifully, the two layers line up perfectly (well, as good as my old eyes work anyway!).    The circle is cut with a Spellbinders circle...use your choice of size.

Supplies:
White and black cardstock
The golden brown is the reverse side of the Glitz designer paper I've been using for the last couple of cards, the Chevron is Hippity Hoppity paper from Echo Park...and is mounted directly to the card front.
The bow is tied around the top cardstock layer only...from the circle to the edge.  It is crinkly paper ribbon from May Arts that looks like rope until you fan it out...CAREFULLY!  Ask me how I know!
Pearls are Zva Creative

The 'Right Shoes' Card (Prima Dolls)

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink - as always thank you Terri for having me.  Today for my card  I am using the Prima Doll stamps again - but in a slightly different way.  


This was just so much fun to use only part of the stamps for a quick and fun card for a girlfriend.  Here is a list of the products I used:
  • Prima Doll Stamps
  • Glitz ‘Your Truly’ 6 x 6 paper pack
  • White card stock
  • White gel pen
  • ‘Clear Star’ gel pen
  • ProMarkers (or an alcohol marker for colouring)
Here are a few close-ups.





Thanks for stopping by today.  See you next time.
