Leafy Thank You

After the recent floods we had here in Brisbane, I made these cards up for my Mother-in-law to give to all the men who helped her get stuff up off the floor and help clean up after the water went right through her whole house. I came up with this one which she absolutely adored. The colours are Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. I put the bottom section through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder and used the bit we usualy throw away from the little leaves Die and raised it up on dimensionals for a different look. Then I spritzed all over it with the Early Espresso marker. Ever since Regionals I've fallen in love with that Spritzer Tool. It's a really good masculine card I think. Happy Stamping Tina

Elements of Style

I did a workshop for some craft ladies last weekend and so I wanted to make something really special for the Hostess as a thank you gift for having me. I just love this set Elements of Style so I had a bit of a play and came up with this lovely little gift box which I filled with Coffee Bags.

I have used my Spritzer tool to make the splatting marks and the distressing tool to rough up all the edges. I also used the lovely little vintage trinkets and the lace trim from the Summer Mini which finished this off beautifully.

Overall I was sooooooo pleased with this. I'm going to turn it into a class with a matching card I think.

The colours used are Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Bravo Burgundy and Early Espresso to stamp the rose image. Blender pens were used to colour the image in.

If you are interested in a class, please let me know and I schedule one in.

Happy Stamping everyone.

Friends Vintage

Im being a bit partial to the vintage look lately (had you guessed). Anyway, this is a quite simple card. The main features to note - the very vanilla piece has been embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and then I used a piece of sponge and lightly dabbed it in the River Rock ink then brushed it lightly over the raised parts of the embossing. I roughed up the edges with the edge of my scissors. The piece of Early Espresso has been scrunched up completely and then flattened out again to give a rustic look as well. The image is from Just Believe Stamp Set. I love these types of stamps as well. More Vintage Stuff coming soon. Tina
