STAMPIN' UP! - Wonderland

I love this stamp set!  I inked up the trees with Garden Green ink and stamped once on the left of the card white layer.  I inked it up again, stamped on the right side and then without reinking the stamp, I stamped it again in the middle.  The design was matted and added to the white base.

Thank you for coming by today!

POPPY STAMPS - Gentle Leaf Collage

Over the weekend I cut several of this design using ivory/cream card stock.  The other two were pretty much identical to what I have posted in the past.  I decided to use the third one and mount it with foam dots on the same card stock.  I like it.  What do you think?

I'm trying to get back to making some cards and I do have some lined up for the next three days.  I hope you will come back again to check them out.

When two of our granddaughters visit, one of their favorite things to do is play with my alcohol inks and Yupo paper.  They have made some great backgrounds for me.

Recently I cut the die with the trees and deer and wanted to put an alcohol ink background behind it and started looking through the ones that I hadn't used yet.  I had forgotten about this one and it was perfect.  The "moon" was actually very close to the left side of the design but worked out to be in just the right place.  If I try to create a background like the one my granddaughter did, I'm not sure I'll be as lucky.

Another of the I. O. stamps that only include a Part # but no name otherwise.  This is a Tara Caldwell design.  I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment is a stamp from Paper Inspirations.

When I use this design again, I believe I will cut it out with either a rectangle or oval die so that it can be matted and then added to the card base.

Thank you for stopping by!

I have eight stamps from Impression Obsession and the only thing on the package to identify the image is a Part #.  Somewhere I did find a name for two of them but I cannot find the others. This flower is an Alesa Baker design.

I added a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white card stock which was embossed with a Darice "Crackle" folder to the white card base.  The image was colored with Copic markers, cut & then embossed with a Spellbinders oval die. The image was mounted on Stampin' Up! Lavender Lace card stock and then added to the card using foam dots.

Both of the cards made below were made using a Whipper Snapper stamp.  I made these cards back in November but hadn't shared them yet and since I don't have anything else to offer right now, I decided to post them.  I sold the stamp but before doing so I stamped off several of them.  It's such a cute, happy design.  

Thank you for stopping by!

This is the card I sent to the couple who rent my mother's farmland.  If I had to do another one I would use a smaller die for the pine cones.  

My husband and I are off to see "Vice".  Last week we went to see "Mule".  During the holidays we usually try to get to a couple of movies.  

Thank you for coming by!
