Lots of new items listed in my sale pages, in case you're looking for a bargain.
I have several C&9 Turnabout Stamp Alignment Guides I don't need & am happy to pass on to you at no cost. Contact me to see if I have what you want.
I love heat & dry embossing, so didn't want to miss the May Memory Box Challenge. One of my older dies is the MB Woodland Branch. I haven't used it very much, although I really like it. Decided to try dry embossing it on a kraft panel & just love the look.
I already have another card idea in mind. I sponged the edges & over the branch with Distress Ink vintage photo. The sentiment from Poppystamps Hope and Thanks was stamped in Versafine Clair Acorn. I used a Zig to add brown splatters. MB Kaleidoscope Butterfly was die cut 3 times, colored with Distress Marker picked raspberry & heat embossed with Hero Arts Sparkle embossing powder.
I attached the butterflies just in the center & gently bent the wings up. Finished by matting the panel with brown cardstock close to the color of the sentiment & glued on brown sequins. I'm also entering JUGs & SSS Wednesday
A craft store not too far from me had a big sale last weekend & it included pearl Alcohol Inks. Even though I've barely used the AIs I have, couldn't resist getting a rainbow of colors. Here's my first attempt using them on a piece of Yupo paper sent to me long ago by a friend.
I swiped with a green & a blue. Really do need to practice, but at least there was enough usable for the background of the SSS Sweet Tulip die which I layered 3 high. The sentiment from SSS Sketch Ranunculus was stamped in Brilliance Gamma Green & trimmed into a little flag.
The shine from the pearl ink is so pretty in person & changes depending on the light. I didn't add any embellishments yet as I think this could even go to a guy who likes gardening. I'm entering SSS Flickr Challenge 122, SSS Wednesday & Flickr Love Handmade Cards Challenge 41.
