I hoard way to much stuff, saving it for a rainy day i guess. But the time has come to use it or (shock) I can't get anything new. I know I need to say it like I mean it. Thanks for stopping by and have a good day!

All in all a pretty simple card but it looks very striking in real life.
I am working on my photography skills, I think the pictures are getting better. Hopefully! :)

I had forgotten just how pretty Bashful blue and Pretty in Pink look together. I chose the stamp set Bloomin' Beautiful. I can't resist a Hydrangea.this is such a pretty stamp.
I water coloured it with Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Lavender Lace. On the Bashful Blue background I stamped it first with chocolate chip craft ink, and when it was dry I ran it through the cuttle bug using the distressed stripes folder. I finished it off with some pretty Taffeta ribbon I don't know why I waited so long to buy it, it's sooo pretty. I also used some of my silver hardware from the new mini catty. I am a hardware hoarder. It is so hard to use it cause then it will be gone and the catty only runs til May 31st. Hopefully it will be in the new catty in August.

This is my favorite card from VSN it was a sketch challenge. You can find all of the challenges here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=338125
This is the sketch pattern. Really fun! It gave me a chance to try out the new carousel Notes from the SU! Occasions Mini.
My sample is a 6x6 card, I cut it from Wild Wasabi. The carousel note is in Groovy Guava, I used a lid to make the Whisper White circle. The stamp set is Live your Dream and the designer paper is afternoon tea all from the new mini.
I used my paper piercer and pierced just about everything. I used my quickie glue pen and added glitter to the circular piece and topped it off with a crystal brad.
I used a blender pen and Guava and Wasabi reinker to add colour to the stamp. The background and sentiment are both stamped with craft ink Chocolate Chip and embossed with clear ep.
I have not made a square card before but I really love the look. I will be sharing more projects this week. see ya then.
