Smack Down Technique

The Smack Down Technique was featured at my May Technique Class.  In playing with this technique, I realized that the end result was different using an open image stamp vs. a solid image stamp.  Who would of thunk-it.  Here's the technique using an open image seashell stamp from the Seaside Notions stamp set.


Here's a close up of the technique


I appreciate you stopping by today!


You're Amazing

I used the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks stamp set for this stunning card.  The greeting and floral image were both stamped in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing power. The flowers were stamped on watercolor paper and colored using watercolor pencils.  


Thank you for visiting with me today!


Happiest of Birthdays

I love the greetings and different fonts featured in the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set on page 103 in the annual Catalog.  I used the new In Color Cinnamon Cider for the card base and added a strip of Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper.  The greeting was stamped on Whisper White using Cinnamon Cider ink and matted on Basic Black cardstock.  This is a perfect masculine birthday card.


Have a creative day!


Lovely You

This card was super easy to make.  I stamped the greeting in Balmy Blue ink using the Lovely You stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  This was popped up with dimensionals on a piece of Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.  I colored Pearl Basic Jewels using a Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends.  Easy-peasy!
