Art Neko ~ Peonies

Here is a card I made for Art Neko Rubber Stamps.   I used the Art Neko Peonies
stamp.  I incorpotated it with a couple Splitcoast Stampers challenges.  For the Free 4 All challenge, it was a Valentine theme and the MIX challenge was to make a  triptych card.   I added gold glitter to the Peonies.

Thank you for coming by today.  I hope you have a great week.

Friends Of Flourishes - Love Makes The World Go Around

Good Morning, friends.  It is Shirley posting today.  I have made a card to share with you using a new Flourishes release called "Funny Valentine".   I challenged the Friends of Flourishes design team to make a card using the theme “Love Makes The World Go Around”.   I thought this was a really cute set and of course I had to color the heart in pink .   Pink is my  favorite color.  I pulled a piece of Valentine themed paper,  a piece of glitter paper, black and pink card stock  from my stash to use for my card design.  I added a glittery heart and locket to my card as the finishing touch.

We appreciate you coming by today and I hope you will visit my team mates blogs to see their “Love Makes The World Go Around” cards.

Friends of Flourishes Shimmer and Shine

The challenge for the Friends of Flourishes Blog is Shimmer and Shine.    My silver card stock definitely  has shimmer and shine.    I used the Flourishes Winter Blooms stamp set.  (my first Christmas card for 2017)   I used a Spellbinders die to showcase the winter cactus flower pot.    I used lace with a poinsettia on it and I put blue card stock behind it to make it show up better.  I decided it needed just a little more of the shimmer and shine so I added some rhinestones.  The image was colored with copics.

Be sure and check out the other team members blogs.

Looking Good in Red - A Red Car, That Is

I made this card using a stamp from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps. For the F4A challenge today the requirement was to use a die. I used a Memory Box die for the two trees on the upper right of my card. I wish I had a small church to add to it. That would have been perfect. The scene is actually a snow scene, but I wanted to see grass today since I see snow out my windows.  The image I used  - "Car With  Scene".

  I made the background with my gelli plate, then stamped the Blue Knight Image on top of it when it was dry. I used my copics to give the image color. I gold embossed the verse. This works out well for a sympathy card that I am needing.

ArtNeko - Pretty Pink Peonies & Kanji

I made this card for the ArtNeko Blog.   I used the stamps Peonies and Kanji.   

I started by stamping my peonies on white card stock. I colored them with copics. I stamped the Kanji using Versamark ink, sprinkled gold embossing powder over it and used my heat gun to activate the embossing powder.
I added an olive lacy square  (Our Daily Bread die) over the top of the image. I adhered the lace square to my designer paper and the olive card base.
Thank you, for stopping in to look at my card today.
