Leslie's technique

I needed a thank you card, I haven't had a lot of stamping time so this is what I came up with. I love Leslierich's blog and check it daily! One day she showed us a very cool background using toilet paper Leslie calls it the TP technique you can see it here Scroll about half way down the page to see her tutorial. I love the softness of the background.

Stamps: Art Of Life, It's Your Birthday
Ink: Regal Rose, Old Olive, Pretty In Pink
Cardstock: WW, Pretty In Pink
other: Ribbon, Cord, Toilet Paper (LOL)

Hope you have a great day!

Another Pollen Dust Card

My mind is racing with ideas for this set! I jumped out of bed this morning and started stamping, talk about a great start to a day:) For this card I stamped the flowers on Basic Grey paper and cut them out. I then layered the smaller flower in the center and added a white brad. I used craft white ink on the Kraft paper and stamped the words with my colorbox fluid chalk. I used the same colorbox ink to stamp the flowers.
I hope you have a great Saturday :)
Happy Stampin and thanks for stopping by!

New Stamps

Hi there! I'm so excited I got my order in from Jacksonbelle Lindsey is such a pleasure to work with, I hope you will visit her store. Back to my new toys the set I used for this card is called Simply Stated by Fancy Pants Designs. I stamped the image with Black StazON on Pretty In Pink CS. I colored it first with markers and went over it with Prisma Colored Pencils. Then I cut it out and glued it on the Mellow Moss CS that was stamped with Canvas BG stamp. I stamped Paisley BG stamp on the Rose Red CS. The Thank You is a Basic Grey Rub On.
Happy Stampin!

Year After Year Swap

Well I've been so busy! Currently working on a swap I picked Year After Year for my new catty swap set. In the past I've had swaps lost in the mail, I always forget to take pictures of them. This time I thought I would share the process I use to get them finished. Here are the 38 bows I tied and the 40 images I've stamped. I have almost all of them colored now. I'm not using the new IN Colors mainly because I think there will be several swaps done with them. The colors I used are Regal Rose, Blush, and Old Olive. I will be back with updated photos.
Happy Stamping!

Here's how I made the background


I hope you found this helpful! Enjoy your day:)

Father's Day Card

Here's one of my Father's Day cards. There is no designer paper on this card I created the background using direct to paper technique, sponging, and over stamping. The faux stitching was done using all in a row stamp set. Beate Rocks she posted it on her blog, I tried it and love it.
