A Delightful Spring

As I post this with my happy title - they are predicting a snow storm for us starting today into tomorrow morning - a possible 6" in our area - Yikes!!  I'm sure it will melt quickly - but it's rather depressing isn't it??!!  So I'm going to focus on this delightfully bright and springy image!
The image is an older stamp I had in my Easter stamp draw from Alias Smith and Rowe.  I stamped it in Archival Jet Black ink, colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers and then went over the areas with my waterbrush.   The sentiment stamp is Wishing Easter from Verses Rubber Stamps.
 I die cut the panel with a Stitched Mat Rectangle from Lil' Inker Design and the sentiment with a square Nestability.  I adhered the sentiment onto the image panel with foam dots and added Lemonade Blend sequins from Avery Elle.
 I'm linking my card to the following:

It's all in the Chips!

Today's cards were made for the Weekly Double Dog Dare Challenge I do with some SCS friends. Beestamper (Beverly) was the host this week and her instructions were to make a card using a paint chip and a flower! Check out her fun blog here. I smudged several chips before I learned that I should let the ink dry overnight on the paint chip - so I have 2 cards to show you using different colors of chips!

This paint chip is Champagne Pink, Crystal Coral and Coral Reefe. Pretty isn't it?! I stamped one of the blooms from the Oh So Lovely set by Stampin Up. I used Onyx Black Versafine ink to get a dark image but as stated above - I had to let it dry overnight as the chip isn't very absorbant! The designer paper is PaperTreyInk Pink Patterns, the circle frame stamp is from PTI Boxes, bags and Tags, and the little heart is from PTI Borders, & Corners (Hearts). The sentiment is Verve Visual - Wonderful Wishes. The scalloped and round circles are punched and up on dimensionals. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch - I just love that punch!! I used a glue dot to attach it to the corner and folded it's wings up for dimension.
Stamps: Flower: Oh So Lovely - SU, Circle border - PTI Boxes, Bags & Tags, Heart: PTI Borders & Corners (Hearts), Sentiment: Verve Visual - Wonderful Wishes
Paper: White & DP Pink Patterns: PTI, basic Black - SU, paint chip
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, Groovy Guava - SU
Accessories: scalloped punch, round punch, dimensionals, butterfly punch: Martha Stewart, glue dot
On my second card I used a shades of green paint chip - Garden Path, Seawall, Lake Marsh and Bar Bronze.

I used the same flower stamp but added ribbon from Flourishes woven through a slot punch and attached on the back of the panel. I pierced the corners with my paper piercer, mat and graph set. The Sentiment is PapertreyInk - Mixed Messages set and it's stamped on a punched oval matted on a larger oval. That is mounted with dimensionals as is the larger panel.

Here is a close up of the sympathy sentiment I stamped inside the card. It's from Verses Rubber Stamps.

Thanks so much for coming over to take a look at my stuff today! Which paint chip card do you like better??

Promises of God

Hi, everyone! Hope all the Mother's had a nice Mother's Day and that you got to relax a little today! We had the DH's family over as well as my son and his fiance and everyone brought something towards the dinner so it was easy peasy.

My card today is for the Featured Stamper challenge on Split Coast. I chose this card of Jennifer's (Lovetostamp6) to CASE (copy and selectively edit). Here is the card I made.

I needed some encouragement cards and thought these colors would work well for this type of card. When you case you have to change at least 2 things from the original card - I changed the stamped sentiment to this nice verse from Verses Rubber Stamps but used the same layout and colors and I used punched stars instead of the birds. I don't have the long Nestability rectangles (yet!) so I punched 2 scalloped squares with my Marvy punch and put them together - I've seen this done before on SCS but never tried it myself - it works really well! I put my ribbon over the connecting point of the squares so it doesn't show.

Cutting it a little short tonight - I really want to try and get to bed early for once! but I may make a little stop in my stamping room first!! Thanks so much for sharing some time with me!

Today's thought from Poor Richard's Almanac: "He that's content hath enough. He that complains hath too much."
