Design Team Post


Sorry I have been absent from the blog this past week, but I am sick at the moment and can't seem to shake it :(

Anyway, lets see what the girls have been up to.

Here is a super sweet baby card that Joy made using the new Lawn Fawn set 'Plus One'. Love all the glitter and those gorgeous pink buttons!


Ange has made a fun birthday card using the new Hero Arts / Basic Grey combo set called 'Life of the Party Cutouts'. And don't you just love that gingham paper... just can't get enough of this stuff!

I decided to use some of my Practicing Creativity stamps that have not seen ink for a while. The houndstooth pattern is from 'Retro Christmas Backgrounds' and I just stamped this with Versamark ink and then clear embossed. The central panel was done by dabbing various distress inks onto my clear stamp block and then spritzing with water. The sentiment from 'Everyday Prints' was also stamped with distress inks.

My husband likes the individual elements but does not believe the pink panel goes very well on the kraft card stock. Ummm... I may just agree with him.

Thanks for stopping by.

Judith, these are all beautiful, and what do you mean about the pink not going with the kraft? EVERYthing goes with kraft! LOL Can you tell I LOVE kraft? Your card is fabulous and even with the reds and pinks, it would be great for a guy. I hope you're feeling better soon!!
