This turned out to be a pretty thank you card.  I started with cream card stock.  Using a freebe stencil that came with a set of clear stamps.  I stenciled a blending of Tim Holtz Broken China and Wild Honey.    I blended more Broken China on a piece of scrap and die cut the hearts out.  I covered them with Ranger Liquid Pearls in silver to make them shine.  I used dimensional squares to add them to the card. The sentiment is Inkadinkado 'Thank you Words' in Broken China as well. Mounting it all onto black card stock and then again onto a cream base.

Thank you for the opportunity to add this to the Happy Little Stampers April Challenge

Grad 1

Ok .. .so we're coming to that time of year when Graduation Cards are in the making and this year I'm going to need a bunch.  Here is the first one.  The school colors are Black and Blue.
I started with black card stock that I embossed with the Cuttlebug using Swiss Dots.  The printed paper is from Recollections.  The stars are cut with my Cricut and then highlighted with gel pens.  The sentiment is stamped using Tim Holtz "Saying Stuff" and embossed in white powder and black rhinestones on the top.  Here's to the first of many.

I'd like to submit this to the Fusion Sketch challenge

splatter 2

In my first attempt of the splatter fun.  I use Tim Holtz Distressed Ink on white card stock in the colors of Wild Honey, Peeled Paint and Broken China.  I smudged and blended them - dried and then splattered water over the blend.
The bees are dimensional stickers from Jolee's Boutique. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp "Saying Stuff' using Memento Tuxedo Black and the black gel pen to stitch the path of the bees.

I would also like to add this one to Less is Morris Splatter Challenge

Anything for you...................
Starting with white card stock ... I used Tim Holtz inks in Blues, Orange and Greens (Wild Honey, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo) and brushed it onto the card body.  Adding the sentiment with a rubber stamp from the bargain barrel at the craft store "Anything for you" with Memento Luxe: Tuxedo Black. The flowers are from Recollections (left over from a baby album I just made).

Mostly Black

The first one out on the drawing board is one for Less is More.  The theme of the week is mostly black.  The card base is out of white card stock.  The main layer is black card stock.  I embossed a very pretty lady bug from Inkadinkado.  The sentiment was stamped from a collections of  Tim Holtz and all were embossed with white embossing powder.  The lady bug was embellished with pearls and stones in the wings.

Back in the saddle

So, it's been forever but I'm back in the saddle.  I brushed off my stamps and dusted off my circuit.  It's time to get my Muse back in action.  I know she was lonely.  So let's do this.   It's time to get some cards rolling again.
