Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other craft projects. Might even share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

From the Heart Rich Pacific Delight

This card was quite easy to do. I used the color challenge from SCS for the week of June1 CC325 and a Sketch from quite awhile ago SC209.  The colors to use were Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight:

I started with a Daffodil background.  Then mounted the pieced I marbled onto a Pacific. To marble paper is quite easy. I took three marbles and placed in a tiny jar with 3-4 drops of refill ink starting with the lightest color. I then dumped them onto White paper that was in a shallow box and rolled thee marbles around a few times. then clean jar and marbles until water is clear and repeat with next color. I repeated this technique twice with each color. You do not usually need to add anymore ink the second time. Then I cut the paper to size I wanted and using the better patterned pieces. Then used a scrap of Razzleberry with a Yellow corduroy button attached through with a small piece of burgundy ribbon.  Then stamped my flower and sentiment with Daffodil and mounted on Pacific. 

Stamps: Watercolor Trio
Paper; Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point & Daffodil Delight
Ink: Same colors as above
Accessories: Yellow Corduroy Button from SU and a small piece of Offray burgundy ribbon

Cute by the Inch Friends

Keywords: CC287 Cute by the Inch
Stamps: Cute by the Inch
Paper: Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz
Ink: Concord Crush
Accessories: Organza ribbon white, SU Flower brads, SU Scallop square punch, SU small label punch, Dimensional

This was for a Color Challenge CC287 titled Concord Parfait Pizzazz.  I love using the color challenges for inspiration. I had not used this stamp set yet so decided I needed to get it worked in a bit and came up with this. The center is a label and some organza ribbon and a large flower SU brad used .  I also used dimensionals under each squared that was adhered to the scallop punched squares.

Thanks for looking and any comments are greatly appreciated.
