FB Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop

Hi blog hop friends, 

This is my first OBG FB blog hop and I hope I'm doing this right.   If I've done this right, you should have hopped here from Maria Matter's blog JoyfulStamper.  You can see the whole hop from the beginning at Heather Dennis' blog.
The rules of this hop are Create a project with at least 1 item that you have had in your supplies but have not used in 6 months.

My card is made using a stamp from Gina K Design called "Gleefully Yours"  illustrated by Nina Brackett and I think it makes a great birthday card for a guy or a girl. 

Details:  CS GKD Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss and Creme de Menthe.  The image was stamped with Versamark and embossed with white ep.  Die cut with Nestabilities Labels and Fancy Tags.  I used Prismacolor Pencils and OMS to color the image. 

Thanks for hopping by, now hop on over to Linda Reed Anderson's blog and see her fabulous creations.

Be The Change

In this post, I'm playing along with three challenges, although two of the three are combined.  Clean & Simple FTL 153 and CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #15 have joined hands and are combining their challenges.  How fun is this?

The other challenge I'm entering this card in is Less is More Week 28 Challenge.  This challenge requires a one layer card using ink!

For my card I actually came up with this technique - using a dryer sheet.  It actually has a texture to it - not sure if the camera picked that up.  I'm going to keep playing with this technique.  I really liked the results.

I used a stamp set from Gina K Design, "Follow Your Dreams" illustrated by Theresa Momber.  I stamped the threes using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped the sentiment using DI "Walnut Stain".

Have a great week!


Card Patterns Sketch 128

Hi blogger friend!
Today I'm playing along with Card Patterns sketch challenge #128.  Love the sketch and love the work by the DT so I had to play along.  

Here's my card:
Details:  CS - Gina K Designs "Sand" and "Bubble Gum Pink".  DP is from Basic Grey "White Paper Pad" and Prima "Madeline".  Some lace and seam binding ribbon, MS punch and pearl flourish give the vintage background look to the handmade lace flower, layered with a crocheted flower and topped with a mulberry rose.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you for the comments.  I love reading them.
