This (was never photographed last year) when Tim turned 40 this was the outside of his secret party invites ( which never came to pass as we planned the party over the mountains out of town and it snowed like crazy the weekend we were to hold the party) so, he ended up being the only person in his family to get out of the dreaded 40 party. ( which makes him smile to this day) The quail is the only wood mounted stamp i own with no mfg info on it what so ever. the french script background is stamped with versafine vintage sepia on a piece of foil transferred tea dye distress on hammermill 110 cream cardstock. the sentiment's from Hero Arts. the mini brads are creative impressions, the pp is from Basic Grey. The cardstocks are Bazzill. (how's that for a memory? it could be better i guess but really that is off the top of my head)
I had a box of Happy Mail arrive from Dick at HM Stamps last Saturday evening and so far two of the images have become cards...This top one is exactly how i feel every time i have a cup of coffee, how can anyone resist that face is beyond me, this was the first image into my shopping cart haha. They are both stamped with versafine ink on Georgia Pacific 110. and colored with Prisma Pencils. the paisley Background is stamped with Old Olive on Hammermill 110 (staples office supplies) The sentiment's from the SU set so many sayings and punched with the word window punch. the sheer polka dots ribbon is May Arts, and the gold cord is from SU. The green textured cardstock is Bazzill. this card is 4X6 in real life.
This one i did as a take off of the current color combo challenge i have going on in the stamp shack this month. ( which i can post here now, so will work on that later) but the colors are neutral ( black, cream white with pale green) this green (certainly celery) is pushing the neutral part a little, but i think not everyone has the pale quiet colors in their stash... and you know it really doesn't matter in the long run, i did this mostly to say to those people who want to play in the challenges its OK to use what you have. it really is.
This card is 5X7 in real life, the sentiments from the su set called so many sayings and colored with an tombow marker and the ribbon is from Joann's, and the black mulberry is from one of those old mat stack pads.
This is another quickie Christmas card. I have been working on these for the split coast challenge, and I am falling behind this month. sentiment's from SU (yep, same as the cards above) i tend to use what ever is on the table... which makes the cards go together quickly. ( and is a good thing if you only have a couple of days of the week to do that in) my bin of colored images is growing.
This image is from PSX, stamped on very vanilla cardstock and colored with prisma pencils. the brown and green textured cardstocks are bazzill. the velvet is unknown. its about 5X6 in real life.
