Crazy, Sketch & Featured Stamper















I just adore inspiration photos, especially when they are as gorgeous as this one from Crazy 4 Challenges. I just had to play. I did my favorite technique - Direct to Paper (use ink pad directly to paper) for my focal image, using the newly released Gina K Designs set Dreams with the sentiment from Hopeful Hearts.This fabulous sketch is from Sketch For You To Try.  Perfect sketch to highlight my image.  I am thrilled with this card and I LOVED the inspiration purse!





Once again, I did not know the Featured Stamper, and once again, she also has an amazing gallery too! [I think I want this Hostess' job! Finding all these fabulous stampers].  I am really loving the stamped designer paper look.  What is funny is Taylor's card is from 3 YEARS ago - gee, I guess it's not a new technique huh? :)  I used the to-be-released (this Tuesday) Mark's Finest Papers stamp set - Sand.Surf.Relax.  Totally love this set!  You can find my Sailor's knott here.



On a side note, yesterday I found a fabulous VERY HELPFUL ppd that Asela Hopkins created.  Do you own Ciao Copics?  Are they labeled?  Well they can be now!  Check out this awesome download that Asela created!  Here is what my copics look like now.
 Awesome huh?  Love that I found this!  To use labels, I punched them out and glue dotted them to the end of the pen.  Easy peasy and WHAT a time saver now!
Thanks for stopping by on this Sunday afternoon.  Hope you had a great week end~

These are wonderful cards. The first one I love the colors you used. The way you did the inside of the circle is so interesting.
Knot is great. beautiful schell. The flourishes are so pretty.
