Since I got this announced let me show you the third stamp sheet that is available now. It is called Gloxinia (yep, that's the name and it is a flower). I have seen Gloxinia's before and have wondered what they were called. Now, that I work for a stamp designer I know :D:D:D.
This one was not easy for me, because I have to admit, that I do not own any of those cool markers everybody seems to have. I guess I'll have to earn some extra points with my hubby to get some now, because I would love to give those stamps the needed attention, if you know what I mean!? ;P.
So, here is my version of the Gloxinia
Paper: Bazzill Vanilla textured cs, K&Company mat stack, the circle is purchased pre-cut from http://www.limelightcrafts.com/
Ink: SU Mellow Moss, VersaMagic Chalk Spanish Olive, Sage and Wheat
Stamps: Gloxinia by ISC
Accessories: Kaiser half pearls, corner embellishments from my stash(I believe they came from Mike's), sponge, foam tape waterbased markers (I borrowed from my 7 y.o. ;P)
The image is very muted, which I like for this one since I was going for the Vintage feel. You may laugh, but the flower itself was colored with my daughter's markers she uses on a regular basis to color stuff for school. They work, but I do need to buy some REAL markers for myself. I know I have said this about 5 times in this short post so far, but I am trying to figure out how to tell my hubby that I NEED to have some special markers to make my cards look better, hehe!!
Wait, don't go anywhere yet, I have one more Gloxinia for you.
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, K&Company mat stack
Ink: VersaMagic Spanish Olive
Stamps: ISC Gloxinia
Accessories: cotton tri, from my stash, Kaiser half pearls, SU Designer punch, dimensionals, Le Plum Marker in Vintage red
This is a very simple card, but I thought I'd leave it like that since this image is so pretty.
If you like all of the stamps that I have shown you over the last few days, you might want to hop on over to Connie's blog, you know Connie from mcstampindusktildawn , she has some beauties to show.
All right, this is it for now. I'll have to get some sewing done today and I am way behind. I have to have 3 lap handkerchiefs done by tomorrow afternoon, yikes!!!!
See you all later and thank you so very much for stopping by today.
