no fuss

No fuss, no muss – just a quick and easy card for today!

The paper is from Basic Grey’s Green at Heart line.  The sentiment and die cut are from Papertrey.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento ink and looks like a better match for the backround paper IRL than in the photo.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

bright poppies

I’ve always loved the bright colors of poppies.  When we lived in California each spring some of the hillsides would be covered with pretty orange poppy blooms and we would  drive up the coast to take in natures splendor.  Those orange poppies set against a bright green field of grass was so pretty, but many people know poppies only in bright red.  I made this card for a recent sketch challenge at SCS.

The poppy image is from Technique Tuesday and was colored with copics.  The designer paper is from Basic Grey’s Indian Summer line – my favorite line of from them.  I only have a few sheets left and will be sad when it is gone!  The sentiment is from Papertrey and both it and the poppy were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  The red cardstock is from Bazzill and the white from Neenah.

fly away

Hello friends!  I hope your week is starting off well. Summer is in full swing here..we have family coming in this weekend to spend a week with us and next week will be filled with lots of beach time.

This card was created for Impression Obsession’s Fly Away challenge – details shown HERE.

This clean and simple card uses three images from IO’s clear set #CL112 called Flowers.  It has several wonderful floral and leaf images.  I used one to make the butterfly!

First I stamped the two flower images on white cardstock and lightly colored with copic markers.  To make the butterfly, I stamped the image on a scrap piece of paper, colored it in and then cut it out.  By turning the image on its side I created a side view of the butterfly wings.   Here’s a look.

All I had to do was draw the body in with a black pen and I was good to go!  The sentiment was handwritten on a scrap of Basic Grey paper.  I think it’s nice to handwrite sometimes instead of using a stamped sentiment.

The base card was embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder.
