Orchid is my favorite

Welcome back to my blog.

In this post I am sharing a scrapbook page layout.  In the background of the photo there is a pot of beautiful orchids.  So I use that as the inspiration for my layout.

I used several color combinations to stamp the orchids, and I used the Nesting Tea Cup Infinity Dies to create my pot, I just trimmed off the handle after die cutting it.

Flowers makes me happy


Spring is here... at least on the calendar.  And of course Spring + Flower seems goes hand in hand.  So when I saw that there are multiple challenges themes that involves flowers and/or Spring, I jump right in.  :D

I used a couple SSS stamp sets to create my card, even though one is outline stamp and the other is solid, I think it worked out just fine.  I first stamped the outline florals using archival ink and then watercolored.  Then I stamped the solid ones with various inks.  Lastly I spritzed some some Mica Spray.  I love that extra bit of shimmer.  Here's a close up.

The framed sentiment is stamped with archival ink on vellum.

Hero Arts Classic Numbers Milestone on a2z


It's my turn to post on a2z, and I am sharing a CAS milestone birthday card.

I used to rely on number stickers for the milestone occasion, and I am left with a bunch of extras that I can't use (at the least not yet).  LOL  

Well no more, I got myself the Hero Arts Classic Numbers Frame Cut, so I could always die cut my number using my card stock and/or pattern paper which will match my card perfectly and no leftovers!!  :)

Like in this card, I heat embossed the background with Brass embossing powder, and I die cut the numbers out of a panel I heat embossed using the same embossing powder.  I really like how this turned out.  Hop over to the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies challenge blog to check the details.
