I am back from my weekend retreat; it was restful but thought-provoking. If you are ever on Long Beach Island, New Jersey, be sure to check out Harvey Cedars Bible Conference. It is a very peaceful place, and the island is not as commercially developed as some shore towns are!! We had a great time! But I am ready to stamp again!
I thought I would take a cue from Tammy at Stamp Happy and try to combine my posts so you aren't getting tons of email!! I hope this works! The first card I want to show you is with an image my SCS friend Anne sent and I am finally getting around to coloring it! I don't know where the image is from but the background paper is Basic Grey's Boxer, the sentiment is from PTI Mixed Message. It was colored with an aquapainter & ink pads, then accented with vintage brads. It was stamped on watercolor paper; the card is Naturals White and Wild Wasabi!
Stamps: Unknown Image, A to Z Accents, PTI Mixed Messages
Paper: Naturals White, Wild Wasabi, Ruby Red, More Mustard, BG Boxer
Ink: Stazon, Misc color ink pads
This next one is the card I plan to mass-produce for my men's birthday cards for this month. I always send birthday cards to the adults in my church, and I literally made 4 cards in 10 minutes. The DP is again, Boxer, and I liked the geometric design of it. I stamped the lighthouse in Night of Navy on Confetti White. I was going to mount it on another piece of NON but I pulled out some strips I had left over from another project and decided to use them. Wow, I can use something leftover!! Yippee!! I stamped a little smudge from A to Z Accents on them, mounted the whole thing on a card & was done. EASY!!!
Stamps: Nautical (Impression Obsession), A to Z Accents
Paper: Kraft, Confetti White, Night of Navy, Basic Grey Boxer
Ink: Night of Navy
Finally, this card is for Sharon's weekend challenge: Think Spring, a flowered card in pink & green. I had been wanting to stamp a card with this Papertrey flower, so I thought this would be the perfect time. It's hard to see but there are Stickles on the flower centers--I always forget that I have them, and they look so pretty! Thanks for looking!
