Mothers Garden Woohoo, two more never seen ink stamps! How cool is that sentiment? I jumped at the chance to complete another SplitcoastStamper Challenge SC-160 with this classic, balanced layout. Perfect for smaller stamps, I pulled out this set of vintage gardening gloves by Alesa Baker, distributed by Impression-Obsession and stamped them in Brilliance Black, coloring them with both copics and an aquapainter brush and SU Ink pads. Using my stampamajig I was able to place the sentiment from Rubber Soul in the tight space within the border. Layered on mauve and sage colored Colormates paper as well as K & Co. Classic K Bailey design paper and finished off with dew drops and and a bow with ribbon from Michaels. Supplies: Stamps: Gloves – Impression-Obsession; Sentiment – Rubber Soul Paper: Colormates, K&Co – Classic K Bailey Ink: Black Brilliance, SU Creamy Caramel, SU Close to Cocoa Accessories: Copics, Aquapainter, EK Success Punch, Michaels Ribbon, Dew Drops

    The card is very nice & I like the way you used the corner punch.
    I never tire of looking at your work.

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
