Just a little stamping.....

Howdy y'all.  Made a rather pretty card for a friend's up coming birthday next Wednesday.  She is super sweet and I just love her.  I hope she likes the card, she does not like a lot of fuss about her day so I always just mail her cards and leave it at that.  I used Brusho Powders for the background and then stamped the flower in Momento tuxedo black.  Stamped one extra flower and used foam tape to raise it up a bit.  Added some colored bling dots to flower centers just cause it needed something....
Used some glittery paper and black to bring it all together.  then fussy cut a little banner and stamped Happy birthday.  The inside, I used the same black and a light lavender paper,  layered and stamped one lone flower in one corner to finish the card off.  I am really digging this one.  Hope y'all like it too.  Well be sure to pop by again soon as I am making several more cards this weekend hopefully......
and now for the card: 
Oh I forgot I also stamped the envy too....  Thanks for popping by.  See you again soon.

Until Next Time,

Q quickie card and some alcohol ink backgrounds

Hi Peeps, here is a super quick card I just made for a Pen Pal swap over on Stamp Nation.  Used one of the alcohol ink backgrounds I made over the weekend and used a very old floral stamp that I love and the sentiment is from Her arts form long ago also.   But i do believe it came out pretty nice!   Also here is a picture of the assorted backgrounds I did with my alcohol inks.   Just had not played with them in such a long time and came across them when looking for something else and thought why not!  
 



Well that's it folks.  Thanks bunches for stopping by and I hope you'll leave a comment and let me know what you think of these.  

Until Next Time

Played around with backgrounds

Hello all.   I wanted to make some water color backgrounds so I pulled out my Brusho Powders and made these backgrounds.  I am thrilled with how they came out.  I still have one more panel left and no idea what I wanna do with it yet, ahh well.....  Anyway here is what I did.  I used a stamp I have had forever from Stampin Up, this perty peacock, don't ya just love her?    The other is a hero arts floral stamp.


Well was just so happy with these I just had to share with y'all....  Thanks for popping by.

Until next time

A couple Raks - Made with Altenew Layering Stamps

Hello Peeps.  Happy Sunday Evening to all.  Hope those of you getting the really cold weather are staying warm....  I made a promise to myself that this year in 2017 that I would start sending out more RAK Cards.  So I made 2 today for no other reason but to just let someone know I am thinking of them...  I used the Altenew layering stamps Beautiful Day set.  And I used Tim Holtz distress inks mini's to ink them all up.  All in all I am very happy with them.  No to get them addressed and out in the morning post.  Thanks for popping by and visiting.
