I have had lots of fun creating cards for this hop so my post is quite long !!
My first card features the clear set "New Baby" and also "Pinstripes "Background". I have stamped and embossed in white the Pinstripes horizontally and vertically to create a check background which I have then coloured in with copics.
Next I made a set of Thank You cards using the new "Jumping Flowers" stamp the "Say it all " sentiment set and Shadow inks in, Orange Soda, Raspberry Jam, Tide Pool and Grape Juice.
Sorry for the poor photographs but the weather has be dark and overcast lately.
For my last two cards I have used perhaps, my favourite new stamp "Looped Flower Pattern" cling.
For the background I inked the stamp with Bundled Sage and Faded Jeans distress ink spritzed with water and stamped, I then distressed with the same inks and a Distressing sponge. The "Jumping Flowers " are stamped in Tide Pool Ink and highlighted with my Distress Markers. The sentiment is the C5594 woodblock sentiment stamp.
And for my final card I stamped and embossed in white the "Looped Flower Pattern" onto pale blue cardstock. The sentiment is from an old HA set CL148 "Happiness Messages" and the butterfly is from the "Antique Engravings" set.
I hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, now you need to hop along and visit Marcy's gorgeous blog.
Have fun and thanks for all your comments!!!
