Connor baby page

I just LOVE scrap booking baby pictures! For this page I used Teal blue and a light brown as the "theme"
I used a stencil and Glimmer mist on the page first.
I double matted the picture using a torn edge for the bottom mat and inked around the edges. I then used coordinating Thickers to spell out his name. And used ribbon and paper to make the lines ad banner.
Even though Connor is a boy I still used flowers. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE flowers I think the blue flowers with the wooden buttons makes it more masculine.

Journey card

I love Heartfelt Creation stamps! They are so versatile. For this card I used a Darice embossing folder for the white backdrop. I stamped the heart and the key with a coordinating ink from Close to My Heart. I then used 2 large flowers as a base to make the card "POP" the image  and added a ribbon to the side to give added texture. I topped it off by adding stickles to the key hole, outline the key and a couple of dots on the embossed backdrop. 

I really love flowers. They are can go on any project you are working on to add "POP"

Tea cup card

Hello ya'll. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Here is another card make with spellbinder die cuts. Since spring is just around the corner, I decided to use pastel colors.
I used colored pencils to color in the flowers and teacup and then worked it in with gamisol. I love the soft blended look that it gives.

Masculine cards

Sometimes it is a little harder to make a masculine card. I like to start by choosing a masculine stamp, like this truck stamp by Tim Holtz. I then picked a masculine embossing folder by Tim Holtz. That was enough to get my creative juices going.
This card is layered in 2 different colors and textures. Then an embossed tag. I then layered a scrap piece of sewing pattern paper just to offset the stamp o the truck. 
This card has two layered pieces of card stock. I inked the bottom layer and added a piece of ric rac to offset the layers. I embossed the tag and inked it. I used a torn piece of dictionary page to backdrop the stamp.

Monochromatic spellbinders card

I love using spellbinders!!! This is a monochromatic card I made for a good friend on mine. It was very easy to do. I just cut out a few spellbinders and layered them one on top another. I then added some white brads and even layered the butterfly. It was very simple yet elegant.
