Gorgeous Flowers Blooming just for you!

Happy New Year! We hope you have had a wonderful time over the holidays and wish you an amazing 2015!

Today we are excited to be sharing a new release of beautifully illustrated flower stamps from Make it Crafty. They are intricate and delicate with lots of detail and are the perfect choice for many occasions.

These gorgeous new flowers are available in both digital and rubber and the rubber stamps also come with a hand written sentiment, which of course you could use between all the different flowers.

I am so happy to be participating in Make it Crafty's January Blog Hop.  The two stamps that I am using are Birthday Daisies and Roses of Love

I stamped PTI's Stone cardstock with MFT'S wood plank background stamp using MFT Grout Gray hybrid ink.  Over that I stamped MIC's new Birthday Daisies using MFT'S hybrid Licorice Black.
For the colored panel I stamped Neenah Solar white in MFT'S Grout Gray to create a very soft image.  The image was colored with my new Faber Castell Polychromos.  These are an ink based pencil and I love how smooth they go on the paper and how well they blend without a build up of wax.
I then attached the ribbon from my stash to the back of the image and attached it with dimensional tape. 













For the Roses of Love I wanted to try a watercolor resist so I stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I watercolored with with Kuretake watercolors and then tried the hot iron technique to remove the embossing.  It almost worked, you can't feel the raised embossing but you can still see a little shimmer of it on the image.  I then took Simon Says Stamps Stitched Square dies and placed three together on the image and ran it through my big shot but kept them attached to each other with washi on the back side.  I matted with a piece of Bazzill gold metallic paper onto PTI 120 lb white cardstock and embossed the sentiment from the stamp in Filigree gold embossing powder.

ANOTHER PTI MAKE IT MONDAY CHALLENGE # 193

Friday, December 19, 2014


So much fun to make a baby card after all the Christmas cards.  I used a variety of pigment inks to blend the background of the card and even used them to color the train stamp from Lawn Fawn.  The PTI hearts were cut from a ruined spare background. I just love the way the pigment inks blend together.
