Live, Dance, Laugh

This is my final week as the Guest Designer for Inky Antics. Thanks, Jackie for this wonderful opportunity, I've had a wonderful time designing samples with these great stamps.

In case you are on Christmas overload, here are a few "think spring" cards. It is never too early to "think spring" in snow country! This Brushed Calligraphy #2 set (11013SC) was a delight to work with.

The flower stamp was colored with markers, sprayed with a fine mist of water, stamped and then fussy cut. The flowers were foam mounted on the center panel which had been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The next card, using the same stamp set looks completely different.

On this window card the verse is stamped on the inside and the pearls are mounted on the acetate that forms the window. This flower was also done with markers but was sprayed with a 'perfect pearls and water' mix. The flower petals were highlighted with some Ultra fine glitter. The stick pin was made from jewels etc that were purchased at JoAnns.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
