Please email me with your snail mail address Marlene so I can get these out to you.

Now on to my creations...

My first creation is one I made for Our Daily Bread Designs using this months new release Our Daily Bread designs release "Bless This Home"and an older set called Path of Life.  The two sets coordinate so well together!!

card 1

The card is 5 x 7. The image is stamped with Memento and colored with Copics and Prisma color pencils. The sky is sponged using a scalloped oval Baja Breeze ink and a large sponge.   Ultra Fine - Raspberry and Shamrock Flowersoft is used throughout for the the flowers and moss to give more detail and dimension. I used my new CB Brocade Window Embossing Plus Plate on Bitter Chocolate Bazzill CS to frame it as well as a MS fence border punch.
To finish off the card I added silver baubles, stitching and green grosgrain ribbon.

My next creations are made using Your next stamp sets.
Your Next Stamp is having a DT call right now looking for some new designers. When I saw this call I couldn't wait to give it a shot. I LOVE these images and the current team.
I wanted to share a few creations I made using these ADORABLE images.

My first card is using the Wedding Fhiona image. I used a variety of spellbinders and cuttlebug folders to frame the image.  If you click on the photo you can see the ribbon frame I created with the Lotus borders Spellbinders die.

card 2:

My next creation I made for the Your Next stamp challenge, flowers.  I created a set using Flower Bouquet Fiona and cosmo cricket dp (Earth Love).  The card uses the Friday Sketchers Sketch for this week.  The box is a Bag it Up template created by Leigh Ann Baird which can be found here.

set 3:

My next set I divided into two different pictures so you could have a closer look at each.  I wanted to create a card with a scene but did not have any background scenes to match so I used scissors, punches and dp to create my own.  The images are Flying High Foina and Ellie With Pressies

The fence I cut out posts and used the Distressed stamps embossing folder to make it look like wood.  The flowers use the fern punch from MS and buttons. I have a grass scissor...what a time saver!!

card 4
The box holds a cupcake and matches the card.  The dp is from Earth Love (Cosmo Cricket).  The Hey cupcake template is one which is again created by Leigh Ann Baird and can be found here.
