HI Everyone. Happy Saturday. This is my second post today :-). I'm popping in to share a card I made for The Card Concept and Freshly Made Sketches Here's the sketch from FMS: and here's the inspiration photo from Card Concept: As soon as I saw the inspiration photo from the Card Concept I knew what I was going to do. I pulled out a very old piece of photo DSP from Stampin' Up! and blended Broken China ink over the top of it to give it a similar color to the inspiration photo. I then stamped and fussy cut...

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch challenge for us and it is such a great sketch: I wasn't quite sure where to go with this, but I looked in my stash and realized that I had a couple of newish stamp sets that would work really well.

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. This is my second post for today - and it's a quick one. I wanted to share a masculine birthday card I made for a bestie. I love the Altenew "Be a Lighthouse" set for masculine cards. It's easy to stamp the images and it's also easy to color. to add to the masculine feel, I added some striped DSP from a very, very old pack of SU DSP. I think it's so old it pre-dates this decade!
