OverallsIs there anything cozier than blue jean overalls? I don’t think they ever go out of style. This is one of my very favorite stamps by Alesa Baker and distributed by Impression-Obsession. It has never fully seen ink although every time I look at it reminds me of an adorable pair of overalls I used to dress my daughter in when she was a wee one. I stamped this up to participate in a SplitcoastStampers Challenge – Limited Supplies Challenge 151 where we were encourage to make the use of a background stamp instead of DP, one main stamp and sentiment and to use two colors and one neutral. So…..using white as my neutral color, I layered green and blue paper, stamping the blue with a vine stamp also by Alesa Baker, available through Impression-Obsession. Stamped with Black Brilliance, the overalls were cut out and colored with an aquapainter using SU Not Quite Navy while the flowers were colored by Copics. Showcased by a frame cut and embossed by Nestabilities. Supplies: Stamps: Jeans and Vine Stamp – Alesa Baker – Impression-Obsession; Sentiment – My Sentiments Exactly Paper: Colormates Ink: Black Brilliance, SU Not Quite Navy Accessories: Copics, Dew Drops, Walmart Ribbon, Prima Flowers, Nestabilities, Aquapainter

Ordinary Fairytale
Can you believe that Valentines Day is so close? I pulled together something for my sweetie and the sentiment is one that I absolutely love but it has not seen ink in it’s lifetime with me. Well, I remedied that! Here’s the card I made for my husband for Valentines Day (don’t look honey). It is also a layout challenge from Splitcoaststampers – SC161. The card is embellished with a three dimensional heart and filigree from Some Assembly Required, embossed in black. The Sentiment is a wonderful stamp from Stampers Anonymous. Embellished by two heart pins and two pearl dew drops. Another view – wrbf-012c-2008.jpg

ere’s a card I made recently attempting to use several new things I added to my stash. Working with Bazzill papers, I folded the purple paper and layered on top pink paper and a polka dotted panel from Nana’s Kids. From Nestabilities I cut a purple scallop and white circle. Stamped with one of my favorite old Penny Black stamps and colored with Copics. Then, punched the scalloped border from vellum paper and added the sentiment from For Giving Souls All Night Media with purple embossing power and secured with two pick brads. Lastly I tied on the pink grosgrain ribbon. I think I’m getting the knack of those Copics. I’m finding out at each sitting that there are so many ways to use them and hoping over time, that I’ll become better with them. Oh, and I sure am finding out that you don’t really know what colors you need until you sit down to work with them and reach for a shade that you don’t have. Yeah, you can do some blending and pulling off of color and mixing but you really do get a good feel if a color you want is missing. Supplies: Stamps: Penny Black, For Giving Souls – All Night Media Paper: Nana’s Kids, Bazzill Other: Embossing power, brads, vellum, ribbon, Nestabilities, copics

    I just love your cards. Your videos make things look so easy.

    I would like to ask you and your viewers a question. Once before I got so involved with card-making, I saw a symathy card made with white paper, using an oblong or square plain spellbinder in the center, also using the score pal on the top or bottom. It had “With Symathy” in the center. Plus one of the had a single flower with stem on it.

    I have spent hours and days looking for this card, and I know if anyone can help me it would be you and your team. Thanks and God Bless You…..Betty (Becky)ReplyCancel
