Its been a little bit since I posted my computer picked up a virus that I had to get cleaned off before I could use it. Now that everything is running smooth again I will be putting some new pictures on. I just wanted to let you know why I haven't been here, so I will be back in a little bit with the pictures.
Thanks Becky

got a few cards done today

This first card is from D1362 Happy Healing My Acrylix stamp set. X5681 Sunkiss yellow textured cs, Z2119 Dutch Blue ink. ran the textured cs though the cuttlebug. Used my prisma coloring pencils, Pc927, Pc1001, Pc1034, Pc941, Pc904, Pc 1054, Pc 1050, Pc 903, Pc 997, Pc 942, Pc917.

In 2007 CTMH had a paper pack called X7076B Sonata (retired now) so I found this set and had used most of the papers for scrapbooking, I had a scrap or two left so I made a birthday card out of it last week, well someone took a liking to the card and ask me to make them a set. When I went looking for more of this in my stash I couldn't find any of the B&T that I needed so I pulled out the D1189 Floral Delights My Acrylix stamp set that went with this paper, did some random stamping and made my own B&T. This looks close to the original but it is missing the yellow flowers and the design is different, for those of you who have the original I hope you like my take on it.
D1309 Heartthrob, Z2311 Chocolate marker, Z2328 Hollyhock marker, Z2163 White Daisy ink, Z2133 Lilac Mist ink, I used my heat tool to get the white daisy ink dry a little faster.

These are the cards I make using the B&T paper. I cannot remeber who did this card originally so long ago but I changed it up some, the original didn't have butterflies. D1186 Rustic Flowers My Acrylix stamp set. Z2110 Buttercup ink, Z2133 Lilac Mist ink, Z658 Buttercup Embossing powder, 1271 Buttercup Cs, 1295Lilac Mist CS, Z1300 White daisy paper flower pk. Z1212 Spring Harmony asst. yellow brads, Z726 sponge dauber, rhinestones are from Recollections and MS butterfly punch.

This card is using C1395 Enjoy Every Moment My Acrylix stamp set. The morning glories are colored using my Copic markers. 5596 Pansy Purple Cs, 1245 Olive Cs, cuttlebug. Copics used BV00, BV31, BV13, YG95

It has been a little while since I have been here, but since I am no longer working Saturdays, I will try to be better at posting. The first 2 cards I have are using CTMH's April stamp of the month, I really like these little flowers and flower pots. The flowers are stamped in Z2120 garden green, then I stamped them again on scrap paper in Z2166 Tulip and cut them out, the flower pots were stamped and the colored with my Copic markers then cut out and pop dotted on using Z1151 foam tape. I used Z2119 Dutch Blue Ink for the thanks and Z2138 Orange for the Happy Birthday. My Acrylix Stamp sets used D1409 Flower pot April SOTM and D1283 Say it in Style. Copic markers used are B24, B32, and YR16, YR68

This one uses D1409 Flower pot also, did some masking on it, used 5590 Purple Pansy and X5667 petal cardstock, Z2161 Petal ink and copic markers for coloring, copics used YG95, BV13, BV31, YR24. The little flowers in the lower right corner were cut out and popdotted on. used foam tape and ran pansy purple cs though the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.

The little dress is a baby shower card that I made, I used 1299 Baby Pink and 1381 White Daisy for the dress, I ran the white though the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder, the pink flowers are from Prima, Z1284 Winter craft buttons blush, Z1219 Essential collection Brads and the white ribbon is just some that I had layin around so I am not sure where it is from. I have a template that I got off line for the dress.

This next card is one that I made at EJ's the other week it is really cute, I dont know the names of all of the items used. I need to get a list from her.

I got a new phone so I just wanted to show it, the reason I got it is because the old one wasn't takin good pictures and since I don't talk alot on it I did want something that could take good pictures and this one does. It also does good video which is fun, I can also see the clock on this without my glasses which is nice sometimes.

This is just a few samples of what can be done with X5747 Basic Textured CS, I made this for someone, just a couple of ideas.
used the black/grey textured and White Daisy. That is one of the good things about CTMH's textured cs is that it is dark on side and light on the other.

This is the card that I made with the samples when I was done. Also using the April SOTM.

Thanks for stopping by and seeing the new artwork, comments are always welcome.
Have a wonderful day.
