Watercolor Vintage Leaves

Watercolor

I am part of a regional team and we host a group on FB called Maryland Stampers. Every other week we have a Sketch and there is a prize for the best card. I am in charge of sending out the prize and this was my card for the winner this week. I have been following Mimi A La Carte lately and want to learn to stamp like she does. Here is my first attempt.

On Stage 2016

Good Morning.  Let me start off with a moment of jealousy.  I am in Virginia and not in Salt Lake City UT where Onstage is happening and the new catalog is in the hands of many demonstrators.  But alas,  I  am here and can share a sneak peek of some of the new colors.  Whoot Whoot..

Photo Card Father's Day

This is the last project for my May Club. It's a wonderful little Father's day card that hold pictures. The weight of the card allows it to remain open for the receiver to enjoy the pictures for years to come.

Masculine Card

I have been doing a lot of research lately so that I can use some new techniques with my stamping. Thank you to my friend Cathy Williams ( http://inkingitupwithcathy.blogspot.com/) for introducing me to your way of doing boards for the cards. I fell in love with the Star framelits the day I watched a video that has consumed me on You Tube a simple concept using the framelits so I put it into practice with this star card. I have been trying to use up my scraps from clubs past in different ways so I have an alternative card in the instructions. Be sure and check it out.

Father's Day Bakers Box

What a way to celebrate Father's day by letting him know that he's your lucky star. I love the Going Global set in the Occasions catalog.

Alternative Card #1

Baby_deer

When I was sorting out the box containing the bunny card there were pieces missing. Instead of just scrapping the whole project I improvised and created this cute deer card.
