Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulously talented Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a Tic-Tac-Toe for us. I decided to vertical on the right hand column: flower, sequins and any shade of yellow. I began by stamping the image from my Penny Black Fragrant set onto X-press IT paper. My favorite cardstock for Copic coloring. I used Memento Black ink and then went to work with my markers. Once I was happy with the image, I die cut it using my Oval dies and used some Soft Sky polka dot DSP as... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. I have a quick post for you today featuring a PTI set called Latte Love. I have had this set for about a year and rarely use it, but this great sketch across at Sunday Stamps prompted me to pull it out of my stash and ink it up! Isn't that a great sketch? The circular element was what prompted me to use this set. I realized it would be perfect for one of the sentiments. I had great fun coloring the cups, too! Here's my card: Some of you might recognize the DSP...... it's a... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Friday. Oh... I am so glad that it is Friday! I saw this great sketch across at Hand Stamped Sentiments It took me a little while to decide what I wanted to use for the circular element and then realized that the bird and branch from the Stampin' Up!

I then stamped the image again over the branch - as I didn't... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Ann-Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch for us: It's very rare that I use square elements on a card and, even though A-M said we could use any shape, I decided to push myself and go with a square. With apologies to Barbra Streisand.... it seem's I'm in a flower state of mind right now! Mind you, I'm always in a New York State of Mind, too! Love the place! But... I digress... back to my card! I have a new stamp from Penny... Read more →
