Lots of Lace

lots of laceI think the detail in the detail in the Viola’s Lace wheel is so pretty.  So I decided to make my own custom-made dsp with it.  I will say that I think it is so much easier to unmount the stamp from the wheel, and add some clear-mount cling foam to the stamp.  Then you can just position it on a clear block and stamp away.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!


A Multi-layered Flower

Layered Cantaloupe Flower

It’s so quick to make multi-layered flowers like this one when you have punches to help you out.  I used a watercolor brush and Crisp Cantaloupe ink to color some watercolor paper, which I punched out with the Pansy punch.    I also used the new Dictionary background stamp to stamp Baked Brown Sugar ink on the Baked Brown Sugar card stock.  The splatters come from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  This is a note-card sized card — 3-1/2″ x 5″.

Last week was my last as a guest designer for the Paper Players.  I don’t really have to worry about withdrawal too much though, as I still plan on participating in many of their challenges as a participant.  You just won’t see my cards for that posted here on Sundays anymore.  You can go check out what the challenge for this week is here.

Enjoy your Sunday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Flower Shop and Chevrons

Stamp sets that have coordinating punches are so much fun!  They make creating so much easier and faster.  I have been enjoying playing with the new Flower Shop stamp set and the coordinating Pansy Punch.  I also used the new Dictionary Background stamp on the Soft Sky card base.  Love this!

Flower Shop Patterns

I was also playing around with some different color combinations, and I decided that I really like this one — Soft Sky, Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, and Smoky Slate.  I threw in a little Pear Pizzazz for the leaves as well.
