Nature inspired

It's my turn to host the next Card Caravan and I chose the theme "nature".

I used the digital kit A Walk in the Park by Elise and Nicole.


Not my usual style, but it was fun to play around with a collage-type card!

I hope you'll check out the challenge at The Card Caravan !

Happy Birthday

It's PTI's April Blog Hop and here's the inspiration photo:

And my card:


I stamped the background using Damask Designs onto Vintage Cream cardstock. The flowers and leaves are from Rosie Posie, some cut by hand, some using the dies. The sentiment is found in Enjoy the Ride. I stamped a lined background onto the piece of Spring Rain cardstock using the little frame from Luck of the Irish.

Thanks for taking a look!

You are so sweet

Still playing with new stamps!! For this card, I stamped the large line image from Strawberry Patch, and then filled in each leaf, flower and berry with the solid image. So fun! I used Pure Poppy, New Leaf and Lemon Tart inks. The top portion was cut with an Edgers die and tied with a Lemon Tart twill ribbon. Photobucket Hope you're having a great weekend! Melissa

A note of thanks

I'm finally back to update my blog! So sorry to be gone for a month. We had spring break with a short trip out of town and then visitors. And of course, this is in addition to all the daily life activities of preschool, PTA, meetings, and training for my 10K next Sunday. I'm so pleased to report that I'm ready for the 10k and I've now lost 61 pounds since September! Anyway--here's a new card using new goodies! Photobucket I stamped the butterflies (from Beautiful Butterflies) onto the new Winter Wisteria paper, using Winter Wisteria ink. I then colored them a bit (not very neatly :) )with Copics. The frame (from Pretty Peonies) was stamped and cut out, and then I stamped the sentiment (from Happy Trails). The ribbon is also Winter Wisteria satin. The cardbase and scallop layer are Royal Velvet. I LOVE Winter Wisteria!!! Thanks for coming by! Melissa
