Hi all. We had a few days of nice warm weather and most of the snow melted. Yesterday got up to 55. Today was a bit cooler, around 40, but it rained all morning. I needed to do a bunch of laundry and this afternoon, we met with the tax lady. It's always nice to get that all done.
I did get to spend some time with my stamps today. I made a card for the Gina K forum challenge on splitcoast, get krafty (or use kraft card stock on your card). Years ago, when I became a SU demo, I did not like kraft. But in recent years, I've seen some others make wonderful cards using it, so I've learned to like it, although I still don't use it very much.
For this card, I used the Gina K set botanical dreams (again). I need to get some more of her stamps. I stamped the image in stazon on kraft card stock and colored it with colored pencils and gamsol. I didn't bother coloring the flowers, since I knew I was going to cover them up anyway.
Yesterday, I was at Michaels and another Martha punch jumped right into my basket, so I had to use it on my card. The flowers are made with my new hydrangea punch. I sponged the edges and placed two together with brad in the center for each flower. I also used my doily lace punch for a lacy edging.
What's in it?
stamps: botanical dreams (Gina K)
ink: jet black stazon, ruby red
paper: basic black, white, ruby red, kraft, dp (old world mat stack - DCWV)
other: koh-i-noor colored pencils, gamsol, sponge, doily lace & hydrangea punches (Martha Stewart), piercing tool, black brads, dimensionals
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be blessed.
