Penny Black Card

  Happy Friday to all my stamping friends!

I hope your looking forward to a nice weekend,
 I am planning on playing in my stamp room if at all possible.
 Today was a shopping day with some stamping friends to
one of my favorite little stamp stores called,
 Stoltzfus Stamp Shack, out in Amish country,
in West Farmington, Ohio. Owned by my good friend
Mary Ann Stoltzfus. We had just a delightful day.
 Well enough about my day, I wanted to share with you
 a Penny Black card I made. Such a cute image!!!

I used SU cardstock and designer paper. Martha Stewart
punch, some old buttons from my stash.I colored it all
with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Love those pencils,
so easy to work with! As I said the cute girl stamp is from
Penny Black, the saying stamps, one is unknown,
 the other is Art Impression. Well that it is for now,
 I am worn out from all that shopping LOL
So for now God bless you all and hope to see you soon !

Another Graphic 45

   Happy Monday!

It's been a busy day today doing the normal household tasks,
like laundry and cleaning. Phew glad it's done for now.
Well it's time for another Graphic's 45 card I made, again
this one is out of scraps I had left from another project.
Hope you like it.

The colors did not photograph good for some reason,
probably due to my lack of skill with a camera LOL
I used a great stamp from Hampton Art that I got at
Michael's. I used Prismacolor pencils for a touch
of color. The beautiful paper is from Graphic's 45,
 the CS is SU and the background stamp is also SU and
 I used black embossing for it. The ribbon is from
Walmart. The flower I made using the Core D' ination
 CS, then used the Nestibilities to cut it out and then
 used the Cuttlebug embossing folder, then lightly sanded it.
The flower looks pink but in real life it isn't that bright.
The brad in the center of the flower I made using
the Graphic's 45 paper and the I-Top brad maker.
That is a cool tool to play with. And there you have
it another easy peasy card.
Bless you for stopping by and taking a look.
I would love if you would leave a comment
and let me know what you think of my art work
good or bad.

Graphic 45

Hello Everyone,

Hope your enjoying your weekend. Did you
notice I changed my blog background ? This is the
 first time I have done it by myself and I am sooo happy
 I was able to do it. But I won't tell you how long it took
me LOL. Of course I had a fabulous teacher,Darlene
 thank you!!!  Please let me know what you think of it.
Well on to my project for today.

This card was made out of scraps I had left over
 from the scissor wall art I did in a previous posting.
I used Graphic 45 paper, SU cardstock and Stamp,
a Martha Stewart punch, Tim Holtz Distress ink
and ribbon from Michaels. A very fast and easy
card to make and I love how it turned
out very Vintage looking. That's it for right
now have to run, hope to post more later today.
