Back to School

If you were a teacher and not necessarily excited for the new school year, would you like this card? :) I hope so. Anyways, another version using the same supplies. I used the sketch from this week's Farm Fresh Friday.

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Wild Sprouts Annika
Ink: Versamagic Dew Drops Ocean Depth
Paper: SU Old Olive, SU Buckaroo Blue, SU Pumpkin Pie, MM Chloe's Closet
Other: Fiskars border punch, A Muse ribbon, MM Chloe's Closet embellishments
, Nestabilities, Large Oval Punch


I finally had some time to play with new toys. The notebook paper punch - how cute is that? And also the stamped image. I really love this line from The Greeting Farm. The little girls are so adorable! On the image, I was trying out for the first time the coloring technique that I've been seeing on everybody's cards. Using a few Copic colors to make pretty highlighted hair. I need to practice more!! I hope V likes this - it's been awhile since I've sent her a card !

I found a new challenge blog (from The Daily Dare) called Anyone For Anya? - it was perfect - I played along with their first sketch challenge !

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Wild Sprouts Annika, $ stamp
Ink: Versamagic Dew Drops Ocean Depth
Paper: SU Certainly Celery, SU Buckaroo Blue, MM Chloe's Closet

Shower Blooms

Sorry for the awful picture - I didn't have sunlight when I took this photo. This is a shower card that I made with some new stamps and ribbon from PTI. When I saw this "In Bloom" set and all the samples, I had to have it. So many possibilities. I also bought some new Spring Moss paper and ribbon. Actually, I used a Memory Box card as a base. Not a direct match, but in the same family I think :) I popped up the flowers and used a Dollar Stamp for the sentiment. I think the stitched ribbon is my favorite of all the ribbon styles that PTI offers.

Stamps: PTI In Bloom, $ stamp
Ink: PTI Raspberry Fizz, Versamark
Paper: Mermory Box Card/Envelope, PTI Spring Moss, PTI Raspberry Fizz, SU Vanilla
Other: Nestabilities, Fiskars border punch, PTI ribbon, Pearls, Dimensional tape
