Graphic 45 - Little Women Cards


This weekend I put together some Little Women Cards from
Graphic 45's new line of paper.  Tim's new Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide
ink is the perfect match to the bright blue in the line!
The card base is hand cut to match the die shape.


This one is an A-2 size with stitched die cut layers from My Favorite Things.
The pink rose is curled and popped with silicone.



This ones a 6 1/4" x 5" big card.  In the picture you can barely see it 
but there is a G45 key glued above the gingham bow.


Lots of layers on this 4 7/8" square card with a black base.
These cards are on display at Impressive Ideas in Norcross, Georgia!

  • Graphic 45:  Little Women 12x12 papers, Metal key
  • My Favorite Things: A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 & 2, Single Stitch Line Tag Corner Square Frames

Serendipity Stamps - February Blog Hop #2


Welcome to Serendipity's 2nd HOP for February!
You should have arrived here from Beth Chiu's blog.

Today I'm showcasing one of Mary's new sentiment stamps!
Awhile ago I was working on an all blue card and I wished I had
the sentiment, "I'm BLUE without you".  So, I asked Mary 
to create one and she did!


I used 2 colors of Distress Oxide inks for the sentiment,
The whole sentiment is stamped in Salty Ocean then I went
over BLUE with Faded Jeans using my MISTI tool.



Here is the inside view.  
The card measures 5 1/8 x 3 7/8.

The HOP Prize is a $20 Serendipity Stamps 
Gift Certificate to a random commenter.
