Getting back to basics…


I decided to make a couple cards and get back to some basics.  No colouring, just inking and stamping.  I actually had alot of fun making these 2 cards, and will probably try to go back to basics a bit more often.  It’s kind of nice to be able to make a couple quick cards, something I rarely do!  I am one of those people that take FOREVER to make 1 card!  I am sure some of you know what I mean! lol

Anyway, here are the cards.  The main images are from Inkadinkado, as well as the Party stamp.  You light up my life is from Amuse.  All flourishes are from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I just love their stamps.  They are mounted on cling, and stamp so beautifully!  All I did for these is use Rosebud Red and Tangerine Momento inks, inking the whole images with the pink, then going over a few spots with the orange. 

I decided to stop by Michael’s tonight, and was so happy to see the new Tim Holtz Visual Artistry line of stamps!  They are exclusive to M’s, and a bit pricey, but when you use a 40% off coupon, it’s definitely worth it!  I was bad and went through 2 different cashiers so I could use 2 coupons and buy 2 sets! lol  Here is the link if you would like to see the new stamps -

Thank you so much for stopping by tonight!

Hi Kim -

I love all three cards, they are just so sweet. The wedding card is extra special, very beautiful. And believe me, I completely understand the length of time it takes to make one card - been there, done that!

Oh and by the, have done the same thing at Michael's myself!!!
