First is a card I made yesterday for the Hero Arts Flickr Scramble.
I brayered a piece of glossy photo paper with HA red to pink ombre ink pad & then stamped the 2009 Large Dot Flourish in Brilliance Graphite Black. The HA sentiment from 1996 is stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer. I'm entering a2z, Retro Rubber & Word Art Wednesday.
The next 3 cards are for the PTI challenges which have given me so much inspiration to use the sets I currently own! The first one is for Celebrating 2008 & Nichole's Out on a Limb card inspired me to use one of my earliest purchases--Lovely Leaves.
The berries are so tiny I decided to add shimmer to the leaves instead & it's really pretty in real life.
My card for Celebrating 2009 uses Guide Lines--a stamp set I bought from a blogger doing a purge several years ago & I'd never used it. As soon as I saw Nichole's card using Giga Guidelines I thought maybe I could use a small image stamped multiple times for the same idea--& it worked!
I used Lavender Moon for the image & mat & Brilliance Starlite Black for the sentiment from Splits: Just a Note. Clearly my taste runs to simple, as this is one of my favorite cards. I want to try the other images & various color combos--could make a nice gift set. I'm also entering ATSM & The Playground.
Last is my card for Celebrating 2014 inspired by Dawn's card. I usually stamp black, brown or white on kraft, but really love the look of these colors that Dawn used: New Leaf, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse & Pinefeather.
The stamp sets are Meadow Greens & Twig Wreath. I used AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop Dies. I'm also entering Dies R Us. Thanks so much for making it through this long post--I appreciate every one of you!
