Kinda moody

That's the feeling this card makes me think of.  :)

I started off with Curio PP and built everything around it.  I wanted the stamped flowers to come out brown, but the ink turned black on the image and I think it probably turned out better as a result.  I actually decapitated the butterfly a bit as it was just a little too big.  The ribbon is the shade of Pinefeather - not one I thought I'd reach for so soon. 

Supplies - Stamps - Delightful dahlia, Envelope pattern, Fancy flourishes, BB: text, Mat stack 1 (sentiments), Paper - Curio PP (Basic grey), Spring moss, Lemon tart, kraft, Other - Love lives here dies, Tag sale die, Delightful dahlia dies (for masking), Tea dye distress ink (TH), Flowers (Prima), Lemon tart button, seam binding (matches Pinefeather).

PTI blog hop - Melon dahlias

The minute I saw the challange photo, I was drawn to the floral pillow.  Although this is such an awesome photo, I've already got two other ideas for future cards!

And here's my card -

A one layer copic card.  The details got washed out a little when I edited the lighting, so here's an unedited version.

I embossed the dahlias is white, then coloured in with R00, R02, R20, YG91 and LOTS of blender pen.  The sentiment is one of my all times most used - from Giga guidelines.

Supplies; Stamps - Delightful dahlias, Giga guidelines (sentiment), Paper - white, Other - copics, white embossing powder.

Palate cleanse

I've been doing a lot of layered cards lately, so I needed something CAS to clear my mind and eye.

I used the strip from Mat stack 1 collection, in two inks, sometimes stamping off once in between.

And a little label popped up.

Supplies; Stamps - Mat stack 1 collection, Label basics, Tag-its 1 (sentiment), Paper - white and kraft.

Make it mondays: pocket card

When I saw this this evening, I just had to make one.  Such an inspiring, fun challenge!

I wanted to use the Roadtrip PP, and to echo it with, Melon berry, cream and kraft with some brown accents.  Please excuse the maligned versamark dots on the pocket - it was too late to start over.  The lines around the sentiment are from the Labels basics set, again, a little crooked.

I used the little leaf from Postmarks to make my own 'Tag its'  :)

Supplies: Stamps - BB: Polka dots 2, Postmarks, Label basics, Mat stack 2, Tiny tags, Paper - Roadtrip PP, Melon berry, cream, kraft, Other - Doily details dies, Large scallop border die, Melon berry bitty dot satin ribbon, Chocolate button.

Dad's garden

A card for my Dad - a man who reads voraciously, and not unlike how he eats berries from his garden too.

It's almost a one layer card, and that's how my Dad likes them.  Anything extra would be seen as silly.  So, patterened paper stamped with images from Garden variety (with a little bit of masking), and a sentiment.

Supplies; Stamps - Garden variety, In a Garden (IO), Paper - Botanical (Prima), Fine linen.
