It's All White!

Well, a little break in pickling and visitors so I took the opportunity to make one card design using all white. I brought out a NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) die from Crafter's Companion called Birthday Flowers from the Creat-A-Card Collection. After I had the design cut out from a matte white card stock I layered it onto some glossy white card stock. Then my panel was ready to add to a white card base.

Once I had my layers added to the base I then took some Nuvo White Glitter Drops and added them to the center of the flowers and also in various places on the card.

I think normally I would have used a more colorful background but since the Double D's Blog Challenge is to use all white I decided to try it. So this will be my entry. I know it is not a very elaborate design but you know me....I am a CAS person by nature. LOL

Well, I hope your week is off to a great start. Take care and thanks for visiting and commenting.

God bless,

I am pretty well recuperated from the flu I had earlier but then I went and hurt my ankle so I was babying that by elevating my leg a lot. With all that and the garden it is hard to find any stamping time. But this was a quick design I made for a sympathy type card.

This was made for a gentleman who made his living as a trucker and then in later life was a mechanic and worked on semi tractors and trailers. My husband worked with him for several years so we became good friends. He was tragically killed in a vehicle accident so it was a real shock to hear he had died.

The semi tractor is from Stampitcrazy, the trees are from Sutter Stamps and the sentiments are from A Jillian Vance Design. I used a Cottage Cutz Double Stitched die to cut out the scene and I chose not to color it in.

I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge which says we need to feature wheels.

Thanks for visiting and for always leaving such wonderful comments.

God bless,

Fishing Scene

I realize it has been a few days since I posted a card. The first part of the week I was busy with gardening and preserving and then the last part of the week I have been sick. I caught a flu of some sort and had fever, joint aches, severe headache and just wanted to sleep all the time. Well, I am glad to say I am feeling some better but still very weak as it seems I do a little bit and I am all tuckered out again. But at any rate I wanted to share a card I made several weeks ago using all stamp images from Stampscapes. I just love those stamps for nice scene cards.

This was done very quickly by me and used for a sympathy card for a gentleman who had died but who always enjoyed fishing so very much. I thought this was an appropriate card in memory of him. And, I made it a sunset card.

The scene was stamped out with Versafine black ink and then I sponged on colors using Gina K. Designs inks. I used a double stitched Cottage Cutz oval die to cut the scene out and another die from My Favorite Things to make a frame. This panel was then mounted to a white card base.

Well that is all from me this week. I am so far behind on things that it may not be until later in the next week before I post again. And, forgive me if I have not commented on all of your blog posts too. I just have not been very energetic with this bug I caught. At any rate I hope the coming week will be a great one for all of us.

God bless,
