Just for You


Today I have another card that was done for the one of the FB pages for Australian Demonstrators. The lady who runs the page did a cyberstamp event one weekend. She set challenges and we could do what ever ones we wanted. It was so much fun and stretched me creatively for some because it was either a colour combination I don't normally use, or a sketch that I had to recreate. Todays card is from one of those challenges.

Supplies used:-
Stamps: Elements of Style
Paper: Very Vanilla, Raspeberry Ripple, Pool Party
Inks: Raspberry Ripple, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Big Shot, Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Petals-a-Plenty Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sizzlits Large Delicate Doilies, Floral Fusion Sizzlits, Very Vanills 1/4" ribbon grossgrain (retired), jewels basic pearl large

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies used:-
Stamps: Hearts a Flutter, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Twitterpatted DSP
Inks: Bashful Blue, Merina Mist, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Big Shot, Hearts a Flutter Framelits, Certainly Celery 5/8" Satin Ribbon (retired), Dimensionals, Small Heart Punch
