My post is a quick one, as we have spent most of the day celebrating my husbands birthday.   We are so blessed for having all of our children close to us and able to spend time as a family. For a couple of minutes,  I was able to steal away to finish up this card.  This card may look like several recent posts – I have a small stash of Stampers Anonymous stamps that I have dreamed of using and am finally inking up.  They are so artsy and I’ve fallen in love with creating aged and slightly distressed looking pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – I love them!!   Quite a few inks went into this card so I’ll be sure to list them in my supplies.

The pictures on this one were difficult because it is such a dark card, I hope you can see all the details. 

Stamps:  Stampers Anonymous; Baroque Motifs; PTI – sentiment
Paper:  HOTP Paper; Bazzill
Inks:  Distress Inks – Black Soot, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Weathered Wood, Peeled Paint; SU Close to Cocoa, Versamark
Accessories:  Ribbon, Brads, Oval Punch, Round Punch, Round Punch, Prima Flowers


Have a great week!

 What a glorious day!!!  I worked out in the yard, mowed the grass and breathed in spring like there was no tomorrow.   I have a post for this evening and the sentiment that I used on my card is no small coincidence.    This is a stamp that I don’t store with the others….since purchasing it several years ago, it sits permanently on my desk to remind me that it really is all about today!

The flowers are by Magenta – so, so cute and quick to color up.  The ribbon treatment was something I had written down in my sketch book and I was tickled to put it to use.  I used Copics on the flowers and since I don’t have the a really light blue copic, I used a blue prismacolor pencil with OMS around each flower.


Stamps:  Magenta – Flowers; Hero Arts – Sentiment
Paper:  Making Memories – All Girl; Bazzill
Ink:  Black Brilliance: Colorbox Chalk – Warm Red
Accessories:  Tonic Punch; White Satin Ribbon; Paper Studio Button; Copic Markers; Prismacolor and OMS

Don’t laugh but I think I figured out something I didn’t know how to do on this blog.  If I’ve done it correctly, clicking on my picture should bring up a larger picture.  I have so much yet to learn!!!  Thanks for bearing with me.

Today’s a busy day, but I have a quick post for a challenge that I worked on in between things.  The challenge is A Sketch for you to Try and can be found here on Jen del Muro’s blog, I{heart}2stamp.

Another classic layout that nicely showcases a single image.  I picked a cute Magenta flower that I’ve had in my stash for some time and colored it up quickly with my Copics. 

Stamps:  Magenta – Flower; Stampa Rosa  Sentiment
Ink:  Black Brilliance
Paper:  K&Co – Classic K Bailey, Bazzill
