Inspired By All the Little Things #64

Today, I have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #64:

I just love the white flowers in these fun jars!
I decided to use my new Altenew Adore You stamp set to make my card:


I started by inking a panel of white cardstock with Altenew Tide Blue ink
and a blending tool.
Then, I pressed my versamark ink pad to the top part of my panel
and heat embossed it in a bronze gold.
I diecut my panel using a Neat & Tangled scalloped rectangle die.



I stamped my flowers onto vellum and heat embossed them in white, before diecutting
them with their coordinating diecuts and adhering them to my card.
 I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Spring Woods) & heat embossed it as well.

CAS(E) This Sketch #239

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #239 designed by Donna Mikasa:


Here's my card:


I started by stamping my Mama Elephant Three Amigo stamps along the front of 
a piece of watercolour paper in versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed them in clear.
I coloured them in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush,
as well as the grass.


I diecut my panel using a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Rectangle die,
as well as a PTI coaster, which I used to raise up my diecut piece.

The Card Concept #77 {Weathered Florals}

Today, I have four cards to share that I made, 


Isn't it gorgeous?
Our church hosts the birthday party every September for the residents
at the Tabor Home (our local nursing home.)
For the past five or so years, now, I've been asked to make cards for the 
residents who have birthdays this month.
This year, I needed to make four feminine cards and one masculine card.
This photo was absolutely perfect inspiration for me to make the feminine cards!

I decided to use my Wplus9 Modern Peonies to make them.


I started by stamping the leaves, bud and sentiment onto watercolour paper
in versafine onyx black ink and heat embossing them in clear.
Then, I coloured them in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers
and a water brush and ran them through my diecutting machine with my
Papertrey Ink Woodgrain Impression Plate.


I diecut repeated this stamping and colouring with the bloom and diecut them
out using their coordinating die, before adhering it to the card.
I matted it on Reverse Confetti cardstock.

I decided to colour each of them differently...

Inspired By All the Little Things #63

Inspired By All the Little Things is back after its summer break!
I am excited to have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #63:


I was inspired by the pretty colours of the flowers and the text paper underneath.
I decided to use my new Altenew Floral Fantasy stamp set to make my card:

Peach Perfect, Rouge and Mountain Mist and PTI's Melon Berry and Terracotta Tile inks.
I layered them over a strip of Authentique patterned paper and PTI Button Twine.
