Good Morning!! I have been busy yesterday and in the wee hours of this a.m. trying to get together some sneak peeks for you using the new Spiral Whisper digital images that will be available on Monday, April 27. There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day to homeschool my girls, keep up my house, and stamp too along with all my church and outside activities for the girls and I! Seems like I am getting less and less sleep. Hopefully after this weekend things will slow down and I can "Take Time to Smell the Roses". Speaking of roses, I really have to go into my perenial gardens and pick all those weeds and some dead stuff out before the flowers come. Oh I can't wait for all the flowers!! This weekend is suppose to be warm and sunny without the 30 to 40 mph winds we have been having this week. they are. Two were made for LSC217 to use the colors from rooms in your house. The other was just for fun! These images are perfect for a teenage girl. I don't know about you but I find teenage cards difficult. There seems to be more and more "teenage images" coming out.
This first card uses the colors from my bathroom and the digital image "Independant" from Spiral Whisper. The image is colored in copics. The DP is from K&CO Que Sera Lera and SU Afternoon Tea. The CS is Groovy Guava, Very Vanilla, and Bitter Chocolate (Bazzill). I am not sure of the name of this embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The punch I used on the thin panel is from EK Success.
Card 1 Recipe
Stamps: Spiral Whisper Digital "Independant" Image
Paper: K&CO Que Sera Lera, SU Afternoon Tea, Bitter Chocolate, Groovy Guava, Very Vanilla
Accessories: EK Success punch, Prima Flowers (Essentials), Hero Arts flower, Window punch (SU), Ribbon Bowtique Ribbon, circle nesties, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, hero arts pearls
This next card uses the colors from my living room. It also uses an image from Spiral Whisper's Independant Set (Digital Images). I colored it with copics. The dp is from Basic Grey Euphoria. The sketch I used is SC218 from SC. The flower is a recycled flower that my daughter rescued from Michael's before an employee threw it in the garbage. My daughter is a pack rat and collects everything. This is one time that her collecting paid off. I was embarassed at the time (I don't know why because she is always looking on the ground for little treasures) It is perfect for this card. Thanks Nicki! The buttons are from my mending jar. Lol! These are buttons that need to be sewed back on clothes. I have so many now I don't even know what they belong to.
Card 2 Recipe
Stamps: Spiral Whisper Independant Digital image
Paper: Basic Grey Euphoria, K&Co. Denim (Paper pieced on skirt), Magenta, Navy, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Ek Success Punch, Mega Rectangle Nesties, Textile Embossing folder, crimper, circle nesties
The last card uses the Sweet stack from DCWV. I thought the cupcake paper was a perfect match for a birthday card. I colored the image in prisma color pencils and gamsol. Again I used one of my favorite nesties (Mega Rectangle). I love the shape of it. The punches are from Martha stewart (larger punch on the side) and EK Success heart border punch. The flowers are from the Fusion Too set and prima. The mini rose prima is from Michaels. The ribbon is Ribbon Bowtique that I purchased around the holidays.
Card Recipe
Stamps: Spiral Whisper Celebrations Digital Image, sentiment is from SU but I am unsure of the title of it
Paper: DCWV Sweets Stack, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: Primas, Flower Fusion Too, SU Scalloped cirle punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, Ribbon Bowtique Ribbon, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder, Martha Stewart Spiral Border Punch, EK Success heart border punch
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like today's projects. Tomorrow I have a card that I made for yesterday's Way to Use it Challenge. I also hope I will have an Our Daily Bread designs sneak peek for next week's release. Sometime over the weekend I also want to share a few awards that I received and pass them on to others. Thanks to all those who gave me these awards. I feel so incredibly honored. I would love to award all my blogging friends. You are all so special to me and I so appreciate your kind words!
Have a great day!
