From the Garden

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday,

Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals Blog.  I chose to use 
Pea Pods for my inspiration today.  This is my second project this month using this delish stamp. I recently tried to buy a stamp from a different manufacturer that is nearly identical to this one and it was sold out.  Silly me I only had to look at Victorine Originals and it was right there!!

Tag Recipe:
Pea Pod stamped on Craft cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, I colored in the image using Prismacolor Premier pencils and then used Gansai Tambi Starry watercolors in gold to add the highlights to the vines, leaves and to flick lil dots of gold across the whole front of image to add a bit of shimmer. I then used a long strip of washi tape from my stash folded in half and added to the layer as pictured. Lastly I die cut the layer using KatScrappiness Stitched Rectangle dies and adhered the layer to the front of a craft colored tag base. I did this so the tag would have weight and be thicker. I used a scrap piece of brown ribbon for my picture, but you could use anything you wish to attach to your project.

Don't forget there is still time to enter your "PURPLE" themed projects into our challenge, we now have 3 ways to play along. Check out this lovely inspiration board for the current challenge.

Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!  
I look forward to visiting your blogs.
Thank you for visiting today and have a great day!

Thanks for being you

Thanks for being you

Good morning VO friends! Amy here to share a Thank You card I made using a fun Angel from the Beautiful Angel set.    (10566-X)
(74407-B) from Victorine Originals 

I thought of making a Thank you card because I am so thankful for my DT sisters and Sabrina for covering for me the last few weeks while I dealt with a death in my family of a very important person to me.  
So to all of you, really a Thank you doesn't seems to be enough. But a huge

And the inside

I started out by choosing some fun and colorful papers from my stash. 
I then die cut the pretty design and backed it in white card stock.
I then stamped directly on the paper.
I also die cut for the sentiment.  I layered a few colors and attached them to my card. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today. 
Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to join in our challenge which will be ending soon. 
Here's the mood board again for that challenge

Be sure to join in and please stop by my blog for my inspiration peice I made for the challenge.

Just For You

Happy Sunday, everyone and welcome. Today I'm sharing a simple design that reminded me of some of my first cards minus the sequins, of course. Do you ever look back at past projects to see how far along you've progressed? For me the difference is night and day.  

Using the Victorine Originals Just For You sentiment and Flowers stamp, I stamped the image  and sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink, add a little color with Zig Pens, die-cut an oval to frame image, adhered with 3D mounting foam, finished off with sequins. So simple, just the way I like it lately.

As always, thanks for joining us!

Snail Mail - Thinking of You

Hello everyone and welcome.
Heather from SuprFox Designs here today with this cute little snail image from the Mini Animals and Flowers set

These little critters are so cute and versatile and I saw this little snail and thought a Thinking of You card would be perfect.  I started with a 3 x 3 piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock and stamped the snail in TH Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers (OMG, this color is so pretty!) then I added the Thinking of You sentiment from my crafty stash and wanted to showcase more of that beautiful color, so dug around in my big box of stencils and found this distressed bubble one and added some more ink to the top left of my white panel.  

I then cut out a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 square of Poppy colored paper to mat my snail piece onto.  I put it all onto an A2 sized piece of grey card stock and added some glitter washi tape down the side for a bit more interest. These colors really pop and are so pretty together. 

Don't forget to join us for the current challenge going on right now, you can use the theme, images and/or colors for inspiration!  

See you all soon

Butterfly Frame Card

Hello all!  Happy Wednesday.  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with a lovely butterfly card.
I created this card using a butterfly stamp from the VO Wings set and the sentiment stamp from the VO Butterfly set.   Both were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on prints from DCWV's Lilac Love stack.  The butterfly was embellished with White Nuvo Crystal Drops and white gel pen.
Additional products used include GMD Triburst stencil with homemade embossing paste, Grape Fizz Trendy Twine, GMD Floral Frame set die, GMD Spring Flower Arrangements dies and sage green paint. The recipe I used for the embossing paste is:  1/4 cup corn starch, 1 Tbsp. Elmer's School Glue, 1 Tbsp. Acrylic Paint (I used white but you can use any color) and small amount of water, just enough to make the mix into a paste.  I used the paste on watercolor paper for extra stability.
Remember, we have our Purple challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.
