Wedding Card

One of my students is going to a wedding at the Brookfield Zoo. She wanted a zoo themed card. This is what I came up with. Nothing is glued together yet, but isn't it cute? Not bad for a spur of the moment card.

Stretch Your Stamps Day 8

Today's class was all about outline stamps. Since I didn't have the right kind of ink pad to stamp and then use the Distress Ink watercolor technique, I decided to color my images with colored pencils.

I stamped the Hero Arts Peeking Posies on kraft card stock, colored them in and then outlined them with a black pencil.

Online Card Class Day 8

Ok so I'm a little behind in the Stretch Your Stamps Online Card Class. I've made cards for most of the days, I just haven't posted them yet.

Today's Class is using label stamps. I had this little flower stamp from the dollar bin at JoAnn's and it fit perfectly in the label stamp. I embossed them both in white and then colored them in with wild honey, scattered straw and tea dye distress inks. The papers are from the last two Simon Says Stamp monthly card kits - My Minds Eye Indie Chic and Pink Paislee London Market lines. (Love those kits!)

Thanks for stopping by.

New cards

I'm taking the Stretch Your Stamps class from Online Card Classes. Todays lesson was using background stamps.

I didn't have the right kind of flower stamp, so I improvised and cut my flowers out with my Cricut and then stamped them with the background stamp. I like the way the card turned out.

Happy 4th of July

Hope everyone is enjoying their 4th of July celebrations. We just finished watching the Arlington Heights parade, which goes right by our apartment, and are going to see the Spiderman movie this afternoon. 

I realized that I haven't posted the cards for this months Cricut Classes at Craft Fancy, so here they are.

A nice cold glass of lemonade would be a great thing to have on a hot day like today. This one is from the Savory Cartridge, with the scalloped rectangle from the Accent Essentials Cartridge.

The next card is from the Picturesque Cartridge. I love the paper from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh line. So pretty.

 Craft Fancy is celebrating Christmas in July, so I added a Christmas card to the mix. This one is from the Freshly Picked Cartridge and is a little whimsical. I've been wanting to use this gnome for a while, so I thought this was the perfect time!

Finally, someone asked for a wedding card, so here is one from the Wrap It Up and Elegant Edges cartridges. 

There will be one more card using the Country Life cartridge, but it isn't quite finished yet.

Thanks for stopping by!
