another good day...

today was a good day at work, got good news (work related something that i mostly did myself that was a pain in the everything and it paid off) and got to leave early. and even better had this stamp in my mail box to come home to :)
peek at the diamond glaze...
I am such a sucker for tulips, this is an Inkadinkado tin can mail line collage stamp. its stamped with versafine vintage sepia on a piece of old basic grey pp and the edges are torn and inked with distress inks, the green distressed looking pp is also basic grey (something in the stores now) the black mat is Bazzill as is the green cardbase. black eyelets are unknown, hemp strings from walmart. there is some diamond glaze on the one red colored with markers tulip. the sentiments from A Muse. this is an Hand deliverable size card... 7 1/2 X 4 1/2 inches in real life.
When i was looking at the cut off piece of green cardstock from the tulips card above i thought oh that's nearly big enough for a card... so this ones 4 1/4 Square in real life, the Always birdy is stamped with versafine vintage sepia ink on a scrap of Neenah cardstock that was colored with peeled paint distress ink and sprayed with glimmer mist (sage) spray . the pp is basic grey, the mat is Paper Trey Inks ocean tides (totally yummy color note to self gotta order some of this one for sure) the mini brads were a free gift recently from atrs (when i bought a handful of stampscapes stamps recently) (see some of them below)
Bought this mousie for Alice since it was on her wish list, colored this a long time ago and finally got it onto a card today. basic grey pp, bazzill cardstocks & May Arts ribbons. its A-6 in real life. Sentiments from the su freebie set last winter called "congrats"
another scene card intending to send out as a dad's day card.
the scene it in a garden sets from su, the largest flower pot is from rubber stamps of America, the med and sm flower pot(up on a pop dot) are from 100 proof press, the sentiments from Printworks (Annette Allen Watkins line) the inks on this are Memento tuxedo black and rich cocoa Versafine Habanero & Toffee. used SU Earth Elements and Staedtler (basic colors) watercolor crayons with an aqua brush to color this, all the images are stamped on Canson Watercolor paper. The Mats river rock cs from SU and the blue base is Not Quite Navy. this ones 5X7 in real life.
This is another dad's day card... the PSX boats tied to the dock are stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on Paper trey ink ocean tides cardstock These samples of this cardstock came to me via wish rak from Delse (Thanks Deb!) the sentiments from the SU set Many Happy Returns. the mat is a piece of Canson Watercolor paper sprayed with glimmer mist spray shimmery ink (sage and sea glass) the pp under that is from K& Co. (a pad they had at walmart a few years ago. the cardbase is unknown.
This is last nights experimental scene card... for the heck of it I made a pile of all the stamps and inks and papers on this very simple looking flat card... (yes this is a "big bucks") card... lol
its 5X7 in real life, with the following stamps: Sentiments from Savvy stamps in versafine onyx black ink, the stampscapes stamps are named: Meadow Large, Cloud Bar, Pines and rocks sm, pine row, fir tree, tallgrasses sm, lilly grasses, duck trio in flight, buck.
inks are: memento Rich Cocoa & London Fog, Ranger Tim Holtz Distress inks: Vintage Photo, tea dye, weathered wood, broken china, pine needles, shabby shutters, and Peeled Paint. the blue cardstocks unknown the brown is from paper trey ink and the green is river rock from SU. the images are stamped on Neenah Solar white #110.
and the reason its an "iffy" card for me is the colors i didn't get them blended as much as i wanted to and i had a hard time not tying ribbon along the side... lol
