About Me

My photo
I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Friday tomorrow. Yea! It's been a busy work week for me but I did manage to sneak in some stamping time last night to make a card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #167. My Sept. KI pack was on my table so naturally, I choose it for my papers. I need a couple birthday cards for October birthdays, so with that in mind, here's what I came up with.

The daisies are from the TE set Oops-A-Daisy. I stamped them on some TE watercolor paper and colored them with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. (I'm still getting the hang of coloring with them) I used my aqua painter to push the color around. The flat flower was cut out with the circle Nestie. The other two were cut out with the TE coordinating die, then popped up on dimensionals to make the arrangement. I sponged around the first flower with some pink SU in before adding the other two flowers.

The distress markers used are: bundled sage, barn door, antique linen, spun sugar and tattered rose. (Don't you just love the color names on these markers?)

Stamps: Opps-A-Daisy set by Taylored Expressions
Paper: Sept KI Kit, red and pink card stock and MME "The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine" patterned papers and Taylored Expressions watercolor paper
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, SU Pink Pirouette, and Tim Holtz Distress Markers
Other: classic circle Nesties, TE Oops-A-Daisy and small scalloped border dies, TE ribbon (KI kit), Want-2-Scrap pearls (KI kit), aqua painter, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

Happy Friday all, and thanks for looking in,
