Everyday Possibility



Hello Friends,

I'm playing along with 
Freshly Made Sketches today with my
card using the sweetest stamp set
called Everyday Miracles by 

I brought out my distress inks
again (they are really getting a work out lately! :)
and brushed on some ink in various colors
to my spritzed water color paper panel.
They I simply stamped my image and sentiment
in Staz-On ink over the top once the paper was dry.
I found some lovely BasicGey paper that I 
thought really worked well with my colors
for the background pieces.

My embellie is a double loop piece of twine
glued down to the paper with two sparkly 
sequins adhered on top.

Wishing you a bright day filled 
with possibilities!

Without You



 I'm playing catch up on a Friday night,
after a super busy week, with two challenges.  
These summer days just fly by don't they?

The sketch this week from CAS(E) this Sketch 
was just too irresistible to resist!
I combined it with Challenge #61 - 
One Layer from CAS on Sunday


I choose two sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps for my card.
The first set, Long Stem Silhouettes, worked perfectly
for a corner "branch".  After I sponged the entire 
card front using distress ink pads and a sponge dauber, 
I colored up the stamp with distress markers
 and stamped over the background.  
I love the faux water color effect!

The second stamp set which includes the sentiment
and dragon flies unfortunately is no longer available.
Wouldn't you know, the one time I didn't check...
However, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has a wonderful array
of sentiment stamps sure to please that would
work equally well with this card.

Wishing you a weekend full of 
sunshine and smiles!

Two Paper Divas - Love with your Heart



Isn't this sentiment by Two Paper Divas Stamps
to die for?  It's actually one stamp but I masked off
each section so I could spread it out 
and place it where I wanted. 

Today is my last day designing for Two Paper Divas
and I am going to miss both Gayla and Melissa.
Both such fabulous ladies and super easy to work with!

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Loves Rubber Stamps - #157 Use a Die Cut
Craft Your Passion - #267 Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations - Dies and Punches

Hope your day is fabulous!
