Here is another card made with the Nature Walk set. It is absolutely a great set. I used River rock, baja breeze, Rose red and very vanilla.
I love this new Tulip boarder embossing folder too. Easy to make pretty vintagy cards.

This was a special request. For an over sized pink and feminine Birthday card. I loved making it.
The card is 5 1/2 by 51/2 square. It was made with pink pirouette, regal rose and pretty in pink. I embossed it with the elegant lines folder so pretty! I used lot's of bling, those fabulous pearls and dazzling diamonds glitter.
To do the ribbon I ran it through the sewing machine with a basting stitch, I gathered it and adhered to the card using sticky strip.
I really like how it turned out.

I really love how this card turned out. I used a colour combo of River Rock, Baja Breeze, Rose Red and Very Vanilla.
I stamped the main image with black Stazon and then cut it out. I watercoloured using the aqua painter and reinkers. I then adorned the image with the pearls. I love these, one of my fave products in the catty.
The ribbon roses are new as well in the Occasions Mini, they come in very vanilla but I used my rose red marker to colour it to match. I also adore the seam binding ribbon, so pretty.
I ran the river rock piece through the big shot with the elegant lines folder and then gave it a quick spritz with the log cabin smoosh spritz.
I love the vintage feel of this.

Due to weather today and a long power outage. I will start listing my online garage sale items tomorrow.

The colour scheme is River Rock, Baja Breeze, Rose Red and Very Vanilla. I used the new Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon. It is so sheer and shiny and so vintage.

Variations on a theme. I really do love this colour combo. For some reason I am on a Valentines day kick. Thses are both based on the stamping 411 sketch.
I have not had time to stamp yet this week as I am working all week and have a super nasty head cold.
I was hoping to stamp tonight but I feel worse than I did at work. That's just not fair.

This sketch was a Saturday sketch challenge from Stamping 411.

They are an excellent source of inspiration. I didn't get this one posted in time. My goal is to do and link all the challenges I can this year. I can do better than last year I'm sure.

The colours are Regal Rose, Rose Red, Vanilla and Old Olive. An all time fave of mine.

I used a jumbo wheel and a 3 ink cartridge that I inked myself. The heart i stamped then cut out. I used dazzling diamonds and a few rhinestones for the bling factor.

I have a few more from this sketch to post later in the week.

Wow, I can't believe this is my first card posting for the new year and it is already the 9th. I have some other cards to post this week, but I am working.... (at a real job) this week and will be short on time. I am grateful for the work though.
This card is made from Bashful Blue and whisper white. I embossed it with the elegant lines embossing folder and then lightly sponged ink over the top of the embossed lines. The image is from the Friends 24-7 set, item number 113218.
I set a couple of rhinestones into the image for a bit of bling. Added bashful blue satin ribbon bow, finished off with a antique brad. I LOVE the brads so pretty!
For me this is a pretty simple card and looks beautiful. imo. :)
