Here is the inspiration piece:

I went really literal with this one. I have a Heidi Swapp stencil that almost perfectly matched the inspiration. And I just played with my Distress Inks again, blending with an ink blending tool. The scrap of silver paper is a nod to PTI’s new metallic product line (although it is Recollections brand).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Papertray Ink White, Recollections Silver Mirror, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberries, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Tulip Note Card Boxed Set

It was bitterly cold here last week, and we had snow over the weekend. My mind is on SPRING.

I pulled out my Hero Arts Newspaper Tulips stamp, some old Stampin’ Up! markers, and made a set of 5 note cards.

You’re Amazing Card – Tag You’re It! Challenge #15

tag you're it 15 amazing v2

Here is my effort for the latest Tag You’re It! Challenge (#15) .

The inspiration, by Donna Mikasa:

TYIC #15-DonnaMikasa

I was leaning towards another literal interpretation (different shape, watercolored…), but then changed gears. I did stamp my flowers in multiple colors, but I was inspired by the tag treatment onĀ  this card by Heather Campbell, posted on Ellen Hutson’s The Classroom blog.

Instead of using foam tape under my tag, I built up layers of cardstock – and I used the colors that matched the colors of the flowers.

Sequins for flower centers (and sparkle!), and it is done.
