Single Cone

Here is a card I made using the StampTV sketch - STVSC21.

I used images from the 100% Sweet set from Gina K Designs. The green patterned background papers are part of the 100% Sweet digital papers available for download at StampTV in the freebies section. I inked up the cone image using a brown and pink Marvy LePlume II marker to stamp out the image. I colored it in using Prismacolor pencils.

Happy 4th of July!

In celebration of the 4th, I pulled out some 4th of July stamps to make a card using this week's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You.

The fireworks image by Anita's stamps, is heat embossed with red and blue embossing powders. The circular sentiment, stars, and firecracker images are Inque Boutique stamps. The strip of ribbon in the top corner of the main panel is by Morex. I used the Fiskars threading water punch for the scalloped edge and I used a paper punch to cut out the stars.

Be safe and have a nice holiday!

Things You Do

Over at the Hero Arts blog, there is a challenge to use a photo on a card. I have never done this so I thought I would take the challenge.

Earlier this Spring, I took pictures of these beautiful tulips, and a few other flowers, that had bloomed in my yard. I couldn't believe how open they were and I really love this orange color with a hint of yellow.

For the card, I printed the photo and used a Marvy scalloped square paper punch to cut out just the flowers, focusing on their beauty. I used a Hero Arts sentiment stamp, ribbon I found at the $1 bin from Target, Stampin Up card stock and ink and the Fiskars threading water scalloped edge punch for the bottom edge on the card front.
