Enjoy


I began this A2-sized card by stamping the balloons on a scrap of white card stock using Brilliance Ink. Brilliance shimmers in the light. I cut them out with a die and glued the two on the ends to the card base. I used double-sided foam tape to lift the middle one up. I drew a line from each with a pencil. Then, I die cut the sentiment and glued it to the card base.

Celebrate


 I began this A2-sized card by stamping bubbles all over the front using Brilliance ink in three different colors. Brilliance gives a shimmery effect in the light. Then, I die cut the sentiment and glued it down.

Childhood is a Journey


 I began this A2-sized card by cutting a piece of white card stock for the top. I stamped the sentiment (Momenta) using Colorbox Chalk lipstick red and the tricycle (Unity) using Versafine Onyx. Then, I cut a piece of red card stock, which was slightly larger and adhered the two pieces together. Next, I adhered that onto the white card base.

Big Ben: London

I began this tag by stamping the clock (Inkadinkado) and Big Ben (Stampabilities) on scraps of white card stock with Versafine Onyx. I cut down the Big Ben image and colored it in with my Spectrum Noir colored pencils. Then, I die cut the tag which measures approximately 2 1/2" by 4 1/2". Next, I cut strips of white and red card stock and glued it to the tag. Then, I glued the clock face to the tag. After that, I used double-sided foam tape to adhere the other image to the tag. Then, I used my Silent Setter to bore a hole into the top middle of tag. I set in an eyelet and threaded a white ribbon through it.

Circles All Over


I began this tag by die cutting the black background. It measures approximately 3" by 3 1/4". Then, I stamped the image (Above the Mark) on a scrap of white card stock using Versafine Onyx. I glued that to the background. Next, I bored holes into the two top corners with my Silent Setter and set black eyelets into the holes. After that, I pushed through a white ribbon and tied it off.

"Earth Laughs in Flowers."


I began this A2-sized card by stamping the floral images (Magenta) with Versafine Onyx ink on a white card stock panel. Then, I colored the flowers using a blue chalk and the "stems" with green. Next, I stamped the sentiment (Great Impressions) using Vivid vintage green. Finally, I adhered the panel to a greenish card base with double-sided tape.

Fine French Grograin Ribbon


I began this A2-sized card by first stamping the label (Above the Mark) on manila-colored card stock with Vivid brown. Then, I cut the two strips, manila and light brown, one larger than the other, and adhered them together with double-sided tape. I adhered those to the brown card base. Next, I used double-sided tape to adhere the pieces of ribbon to the label. Finally, I used double-sided foam tape to adhere the label to the card stock strips.

Ostrich Races

This stamp cracks me up every time I use it!


I began this A2-sized card by stamping the ostriches (Mostly Animals) on a manila-colored card stock with Versafine Onyx. Then, I adhered that to a black piece of card stock to frame the image. Next, I cut the patterned scrapbook paper slightly smaller than the red card base and used double-sided tape to adhere the two together. Finally, I die cut the sentiment out of black card stock and glued it below the ostriches, because they make me laugh!

Woodcut birds


 I began this A2-sized card by stamping the woodcut-type birds (Inkadinkado) on the yellow gingham scrapbook paper with Versafine Onyx. Then, I cut black card stock slightly smaller than the manila-colored card base and adhered the two using double-sided tape. Next, I cut the floral and black scrapbook paper slightly smaller than the black card stock and adhered it. After that, I adhered the yellow gingham on top. That makes four layers.
