Freshly Made Sketches #200

Hi Everyone,

I am back from vacation and totally out of practice - could not get into my card room yesterday - no inspiration, whatsoever....but today with a looming deadline over at Freshly Made Sketches - would not want to miss their fantastic celebration!!!!! Yeahh for Freshly Made Sketches - BIG CONGRATS!!!!!
So I finally got an idea... Still drawing on Jennifer McGuire's fab faux metal technique and getting the colors from Color Throwdown

So pleased with the outcome - its just an amazing technique. Using my  new WRMK (We're Memory Keepers) embossing folder. Inked with distress inks and Perfect Pearls. The sentiment and die cut are by Papertrey. The little butterfly is a punch by Martha Stewart. Used some Washi tape and glossy accents. 

Here is another view - just love the way it looks.

 the Snippets Playground - use a snippet - butterfly and die cut

So, wanna know what I did on vacation? Guess - I met THE FAMOUS, FABULOUS, ONLY TENIA NELSON from Jazzy paper Design!
and I have picture to prove it:

From left to right - my hubby, my son, me, Tenia, her adorable son and wonderful husband.
We had a delicious meal together and it was FUN!

It's wonderful to be able to meet in real life - such a treat! Hi Tenia - hope you get to NY/NJ one day:)

I'll show you some more pics in future posts - for now its bed time for me....

Beautiful card, simple and very pretty. what does "WRMK" stand for?
conil said…
Well, shut my mouth. If that card isn't the winner I, for one, will want to know why. It's incredible. Actually stunning. I still can't get the drool off my chin (ooh, that's sounds gross). Better to say A-MAZ-iING. And you got to meet with Tenia and family. What fun. Let's see, did you talk about cardmaking??? Thanks so much for sharing this beauty.

Don't you just LOVE this faux metallic technique of Jennifer's? It really does make a huge difference to have the next level ef's, and I only scored one (and not the ones I wanted!) at Stampaway. Everyone seems to be out of stock of the ones that Jen used. Love, love your take on this technique. Just awesome looks and especially with the dual color combo top & bottom. Really like this! TFS & Hugs (enjoyed seeing the picture of two bloggers meet up. That's also so fantastic, isn't it?)

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
