Girlfriends Card

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink.  My card today is probably one of my favorites so far.  I decided to use just the top half of the Prima Doll stamps for this card.

Here are the products I used.

  • Prima Doll Stamp
  • Green card stock (Bazzil)
  • Copper card stock
  • Brown Swirl card stock (Canvas Corp)
  • Pearls
  • Sentiment  (computer generated)
  • ProMarkers (or any alcohol markers for colouring)
What I really love about this project is that I only used a couple of sheets of card stock (one plain, one patterned) and a few coordinating markers.  Here are a few close-ups. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Easter!

Hi there, It's Ceal here sharing with you today, with it being Easter I almost forgot to post.
I made this card a while back but never shared and it fits today perfectly. I used a set and dies from Sweet 'n Sassy which you can find at A Scrap N Place and if Terri doesn't have it she can get it for you :)

Springtime is here!

I do like spring!  I like being outside.  I wish I had a garden.  I just don't like bugs.  They make a mess of my car when I drive.  They want to be in the house...maybe they just want a warm night.  And I really don't like caterpillars...but I love butterflies!  They're so pretty!

This one is an orangey-red...like oriental poppies.  I used the complementary color of a greenish-blue to sponge the front panel.  The swirl die is in an avocado green textured cardstock.

Now, I was trying to give the impression of white fuzzy flowers on that flourish.  Don't know if I accomplished my goal. ;)

By the way, the card base here is narrow.  I think I cut it 4 inches wide instead of 4-1/4 and the greeting is wider, with the ends even with the edge of the card so the middle pops up.

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.

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.
