Spring Tulips

My turn to provide the shoebox project for stamp club in May and this was my original project but decided to change it up so posting this card now.

The kraft cardstock is Crumb Cake from Stampin' Up. The main image is a vintage stamp from Stampa Rosa which is no longer in business to my knowledge. (I keep many of my old favorite stamps.) I stamped the image on the kraft cs in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils then trimmed by hand. The sentiment is from Flourishes and stamped in the same black ink and cut with Spellbinders Labels Four and mounted behind the main image. The background is a Sizzix embossing folder embossed on the kraft paper then swiped with Colorbox's white pigment ink then mounted on white folded cardstock. I'm lovin' the look of white and kraft together and coloring with prismacolor pencils. My newest favorite technique.

DH's Birthday Card

Here's my take on a card I case'd from Artistic Outpost.  (Love their stamps btw.)  The name of the stamp set is "Charles and Amelia".  My hubby is a pilot and aviation enthusiast so thought he would enjoy a flying-themed card.

The kraft cardstock is crumb cake from Stampin' Up. I made a modified Z fold card.  The kraft pieces were stamped with the Antique Map image from Flourishes with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  All  other stamped images were stamped in Versafine black ink.  The edges were also distressed with tea dye ink.

 The propeller was cut out and mounted on a circle so it rotates....too clever I thought of me:)  Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday to Karen

I made this for my friend Karen's birthday this past weekend.  Happy Birthday, Karen!  The square card is dark green cardstock by Bazzill.  The designer paper is from Memory Box and I have completely forgotten the name of the 6x6 paper pack!  Two of the dp edges were punched with an older Martha Stewart punch. Coordinating dp was stamped with an old TAC solid flower stamp square set in clear ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  The flowers were colored with Tombow markers.  Hope you had a wonderful spring day in your neck of the woods.
