Getting Inky


2 of my favorite products here - Tim Holtz distress inks and Hero Arts stamps! I watched this great video on Lily Pad blog and was inspired ! I used distress inks and the foam applicator to apply the colors on the tag and butterfly. I think I'll do a tag series - I'd like to make a set of these and give them as a gift. I know someone who loves to give gifts to her friends and this will be perfect for her!

Mother's Day

Here is the card I made for my Mom. Thought I'd try a vintage-y style for her. I pulled out some old Basic Grey papers (I have an never-ending pile of the 6x6 pads!). I used several stamps from Poppy Stamps: Peony Branch stamp, Bamboo Shoot, background stamp Peach Blossom Poem. I was lucky enough to win a ton of stamps from them a few months ago. Check out their blog - they make a nice variety of stamps - super cute little gnomes (?), gorgeous floral images and Asian themed stamps.

The sentiment is embossed. I used it a lot on my cards this year - need to see who makes it. I will update.

Happy Mother's Day!

Wishing all Mothers a wonderful day! This one was sent to my fiance's Mom. Hope she like it! Very simple and quick card. Embossed Hero Art's stamp It's a Parade with Zing embossing powder in Blush. The base pattern paper is some older paper from A Muse Studio. The resin flower is from Michael's. Love it, but will be costly to mail :)

I will upload the one I made for my Mom. I uploaded it to Flickr at work and deleted the image from my camera, so I will upload it on Monday. Thanks for looking!
