A Touch of Elegance

I don't know what it is about black and white with a bit of silver thrown in but to me it seems very elegant which is what I have for you today...  a touch of elegance.

This card was created by stamping the black Stamptangle Feather #1 directly onto the card panel then embossing with black ep. I then used a sponge dauber to apply a couple shades of Memento grey ink over two thirds of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and mounted it on a black card blank.

The Stamptangle Feather #3 (silver feather) was stamped using VersaMark ink on white cardstock and embossed with silver ep. I then fussy cut the feather out and mounted it on the card and added the bow and sequins to finish it off.

Be sure to check out all of the beautiful new feather stamps in the 2015 Summer New Arrivals page.

Spread your Wings...

and fly...

Cattails are one of my favorite sights here in Indiana during late summer.  The warm summer sun on your back, a light breeze shaking the fuzzy brown heads on the tall green stalks, the frogs singing their song along side the locust buzzing away.  Makes you wish that summer days like that could go on forever.

Hi there!!

It's me, Kim B.  I am anxiously awaiting fall.  So, I thought I would use this beautiful new stamp from Just for Fun Stamps new release.  A Maple leaf, oh how I love, a falling leaf.  I can't wait to see all the leaves fall.   It has been so hot and humid here that I am so excited for fall. 

I arranged lots of paper strips to create this background.   I used several color inks to stamp this Stamptangle Maple leaf  for the card.  Welcome Fall!!!

Have a great day!

Hi! Its Kim here today.

Hello there!!!
How are you all today?  I created this CAS card. 
 Don't you love this new Just for Fun Stamptangle House Wren bird stamp? 
 One of my new favorites.   I thought the sentiment Lets Talk was appropriate
 because he just looks like he is ready to say something.  
I used the distressed inks on the edges. 
 I used colored pencils and markers on the wings and beak.  

Find that special someone, give them a call and talk (maybe about rubber stamping-L.O.L.)
Have a great day!


Supplies:  Cardstock, Inks, ribbon

Vintage Bathing Suits...

Enjoying a beautiful day at the beach....

Both of these fun summery cards were made using the new Vintage Bathing Suits image.  The suits were stamped and colored with Inktense watercolor pencils on the top card; the suits in the bottom card were stamped on pattern papers and then pieced back together on the card.

Hope you're having a wonderful summer day!

Happy August!

Hi Everyone!

August already!!   Today I have a very green card for you.

This card was a lot of fun to make.  I like to sit and just stamp sometimes.  Its fun! 
I used two stamps which I stamped many times.  The trees I kept stamping in green.  Then stamped the balloon in green also, highlight with color and stickles.  Both images are popped out to create a dimensional effect.  

Using Just for Fun Stamps:  Fir Tree (just one stamped many times and layered)
Stamptangle Balloon (stamped twice and popped up)

Have a happy day!!!
