Picture Purse

Well this is my first attempt at trying to make a template of my own, after seeing several this was what I came up with, a picture will go on the buttercup matting. I have to keep trying and when I get a final product I am happy with, I will try and share a template or tutorial. This one just used CTMH'S Emporium paper pack and stickease.

Treetops and buttons?

For this card I whipped out some older paper(Paper Garden) and I used the oh so adorable Treetops ss, as well as Garden Green and Blush Ric-rak over wide white grossgrain. The little dream sentiment is from the Geometric Thoughts ss(retired)and I rubbed alittle chalk over it. It definatley did not turn out like I was expecting but I guess that is just an opportunity for me to play more with this set.

Another Wishes Card

Here is another card using the circle template from the CTMH Wishes book, I love that book and template cd. I also used Free Spirit, You're A Hoot, Treetops and Whoo Loves Ya stamp sets. The paper is from the Bella paper pack and the ribbon is hollyhock stiched. Everything was distressed in Desert Sand ink.

Elaina and her posing!

This child of mine loves to have her picture taken, and she is very photogenic if I do say so myself.

Is it the 4th of July already?

I just felt like making a patriotic card so that is what I did.

I used Creative Imaginations paper, the flower is from Petaloo, the little girl is from H&M Stamps a set called Celebrate the Day and was colored with Copics, the God Bless America and star stamp are from CTMH's July Word Puzzle. I also used a Label Nestability Die and everything was distressed in Desert Sand Ink. Well hopefully this is a better picture than the last one, which if you notice I deleted.
