Amazing Techniqe

Shelley Gardner demonstrated this card on stage at Leadership.  This is one of those techniques that looks a little different every time you do it!  The images are stamped on Shimmery White Paper, then spritzed with a little water so the colors bleed a bit. Let it dry.  You can either create the spatters with ink and a paint brush, or stamp the splatters from Gorgeous Grunge.  This card is embellished with some white Bakers Twine and the greeting punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Pin It!

Additional Supplies:  Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow and Shimmery White Card Stock; Black Memento Ink, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Soft Sky Classic Ink; Painted Petals Stamp Set, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (center of flowers)

Congratulations Mark & Angie!

About a month ago, our son and his girlfriend eloped!  They wanted a very low key event so they asked the man who introduced them to marry them in the restaurant they had their first date.  We are thrilled for them and happy to have Angie join our family.  

 I used product from the Something Borrowed Suite in the Occasions Catalog.  I didn't purchase the stamp set (had I known....) but I loved the designer series paper, Sahara Sand Lace Trim and the embellishments.  

The card measures 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 so I made the 6 x 6 envelope and the liner with the Envelope Punch Board,  I die cut the hearts with Hearts Collection.  The "Congratulations" is from the Bravo Stamp Set.

The second photo is the inside of the card.

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone has a happy and blessed Easter!    

I just love the Berry Basket die and decided to decorate out table with a basket for everyone.  I made punch art bunnies to embellish them (thanks M.E. Stites for the punch art bunny inspiration!) and filled them with a few treats.  The little name tags are made with the From the Garden stamp set and Handpicked Framelits dies.
