About Me

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

Thank You


I hope your Saturday and weekend is off to a good start. I had some weekend chores to do this morning and when those were done, I treated myself to some stamping time. Looking around at some of the weekly challenges, I decided to pick Leslie's Inspired By All the Little Things inspiration challenge and combined it with the current CAS(E) This Sketch.

Many companies are coming out with fun flower sets that are kind of "funky." They appeal to me because they are easily colored and I do love to get my Copics out. These images don't really require much shading and blending, though you could if you wanted to.

Here is my card:

I die cut the panel first then placed it in my Misti mini stamping tool. I put all of the stamp images in place then inked them with Memento tuxedo black and stamped them all at once. I do love the Misti! I used a few R and RV Copics to color the flowers in various shades of pink using the inspiration photo. I used a white gel pen for the flower centers instead of introducing a new color.

The panel is glued to a piece of fun foam so I raise it above the card base, which I covered in black and white gingham patterned paper. Finally, I placed some black sequin around the front of the card for embellishment.

Thanks for looking in today. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for my Paper Players card.

Have a good Saturday evening and Sunday,

Stamps:  Floral Frame set by Avery Elle
Paper: SU Whisper White, X-Press It Blending card stocks and Pebbles Walnut Grove patterned paper
Ink: Memento tuxedo black and Copics
Other: Mama Elephant scalloped die, sequin, the Big Shot, fun foam
