Thank You Card

Today, I want to share a card that I created for a swap. Yes, it's some more lovely Anna Griffin paper. I aged it with some Tim Holtz Linen Paper ink and coordinated the paper with some SU cardstock. The "Thank You" stamp is by Penny Black and I actually picked that up from my local stamp and scrapbook store, Family Memories. I had to mention that since I typically order a great deal of my goodies online. I really enjoyed creating the card. I hope that you enjoy viewing it...:)

Sketch Challenge

Hi there, I decided to work with a sketch from Priscilla's website-loved the challenge. I started this card by using my Scor-Pal to create the background. I then sanded the cardstock (CTMH) to expose the white core with a sanding bar. I then pulled out some of that reliable, lovely, elegant paper by Anna Griffin. It coordinated beautifully with CTMH's Chocolate cardstock. Now this challenge required a tag. Well, I knew that I didn't want to cover up much of this paper, but I did want to use it for the challenge. So, I decided to create a tag using a coordinating transparency by Anna Griffin. I used my big shot and flower die to create the flower and added an antique brad along with some ribbon from the ribbon stash. This was a happy ending-loved the sketch and loved the final product. Join me in the next challenge. Hugs, K

Vintage ATC's

Hi there, I recently made some ATC's for a swap. The theme was Vintage. I knew that I wanted to use some product that I had not touched in ages. That product turned out to be some 3-D stickers called Life's Journey by K & Co. It was so great to use some of my old stash. I also used some embossed paper by K & Co. and some Paper Studio scrapbook paper. The papers were aged with some Old Paper ink to tie in with that old vintage feel. The paper selection was sort of timeless and the clocks were perfect for this theme. I really enjoyed creating these. I hope that you will enjoy viewing...
