Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! :):) I hope you are all having a wonderful Easter weekend. It's been a quiet weekend here so far, but luckily, my family lives close by so hubby and I are going to my dad's house tomorrow for all the Easter festivities. I actually have two cards for you today so I'll get to it :)
For my first card today, I decided to ink up these adorable stamps from Whiff of Joy's new Medieval Collection. I just love these stamps, they are just my style :) I inked Maid Charlotte and the Castle with Memento Black Ink, stamped them onto PTI cardstock, and colored them with copics. I added Diamond Glaze to the water in the moat surrounding the castle. I used Karen Foster's Pink Scrapper's Floss for the laces in Charlotte's bodice. I then used Flower Soft on the bouquet and Shimmerz on the flowers in her hair.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for my layout (I love this layout and will definitely be using this one again. All cardstock is from SU (Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose) and my design paper is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I added a brown sheer ribbon and pearls. The sentiment is from Verve and I used my circle nestabilities and my scalloped circle nesties to cut it out. All image panels and the sentiment panel are adhered to the card base with dimensionals. I was really pleased with the way this one turned out. What do you think?
For my second card, I decided to ink up this gorgeous Sweet Peas Image from Karen Lockhart. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with my copics. I added Diamond Glaze to the vase and then added this gorgeous Flower Soft to the flowers. I inked around the image with SU's Old Olive ink. All cardstock is from SU (Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery). I used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added pearls. I ran my Pretty in Pink cardstock through the Cuddlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder. My design paper is from DCWV's Nana's Nursery stack. I added a pink ribbon, then adhered the image panel to the card base with dimensionals.
Whew, sorry for the super long post today :) Thanks so much for stopping by. I'd love to see what you think of my projects. I wish you all a wonderful Easter.
