Layers, layers, layers……I love ’em.  I’ve had this design in my mind for a couple of days; so glad I got a chance to sit down and work it out.    The frame treatment is much like a design I did back in February that you can see here.   There are already so many options with the Nestabilities that are available right now….can you imagine what it will be like when the new Nestabilities hit the market? 

The color of the scalloped circles are light coral and dark coral…I’m not sure why but it seems to be one of the hardest colors for me to photograph.  Anyways, I’m having a ton of fun stamping…thanks for stopping by to peek at what I’m working on.

    These colors together are incredible! Would love this pairing in my living room.
    I have added this photo to my lust file of cards. It doesn’t get better than this.ReplyCancel

I simply love this set of flowers!  They are designed so that they can be colored with markers and misted – quick and easy.   There are many more in the set, so I’m sure you’ll see more this week.    The flower image is slightly domed – I didn’t want it to lay completely flat –  and it is edged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. 

Thanks so much for stopping by…I have a number of things on my craft desk so I hope to be back with a card tomorrow.

I’m really enjoying a challenge that  I decided to participate in called the Divine Design Challenge; you can search for it on Splitcoaststampers under the keyword BVC08.  It is a Bible Verse Challenge where many stampers have made a commitment to offer a card on the 8th of each month that includes scripture that holds special meaning to them.  You can read more about the challenge on Lori Craig’s blog  here.

I can’t wait to see what all the others have pulled together for this month’s challenge.  I’ve added quite a few new scripture to my favorites folder through some of the awesome posts through this challenge.    I’ll be back soon with another post.

Stamps: Stampabilities – Scripture, Paper Inspirations – Brushed Flowers
Paper: Bazzill, Fabriano Acquarello Watercolor, NRN Designs

    This is absolutely stunning! I love the bright pink with all the white, and that’s such a wonderful verseReplyCancel

  • Kerry FitzpatrickJuly 9, 2008 - 12:46 pm

    I’ve been following the Divine Design Challenge and I’m so glad that you have joined. This Scripture is lovely on the watercolor looking flowers. I’m stashing your card idea in my collection of verses. I making a “recipe” box of cards for a friend for her Christmas present….12 cards for each month with a verse each to memorize. I’m making me one too.
    You’re card is LOVELY and a great addition to my ideas.
    THANK YOU!!!!!ReplyCancel

I’m gonna have to come back and study up on your organizational tips for ribbon (I’m doing the jar thing and it’s kind of a pain). TFS!

    Also, I thought I’d mention that I met Nancy B one time (at a CTMH convention in Portland a few years back)…we have the same upline (Cindy Baker). Small world. ;)ReplyCancel
