Linen & canvas

Greetings and salutations! I made a card last night, which is very similar to this one from a few weeks ago. I tested out my brand new Linen & Canvas impression plate from PTI, and I'm in love!! This plate is just awesome!!

I have the Canvas background stamp from SU!, but this plate is just so much better. I can't stop ooh-ing and aah-ing over the texture on the CS. However, it was only after I adhered the black strip on the card that I realized my stamped panel was upside down! D'oh!! I really didn't have the heart to pull it all up, so hopefully it's not really all that noticable. Wishful thinking. :)

Baby argyle

Just a quick post (2nd post today! Shock!!), a baby card for a colleague who is expecting a little girl next month. I used PTI's Argyle impression plate and matching stamp set as well as their Star Prints set.


FTL 94

Since Crab & Company was still sitting out on the table from this card, I thought I'd use it together with the latest FTL sketch to make a birthday card for a friend.

Must dash, thanks for stopping by!

Crab & company

I thought I'd break out Crab & Company for Makeesha's latest sketch challenge, seeing as it hasn't been inked for a long time. I took a leaf out of Chantelle's book and flipped the sketch, and I really like the way it looks.

I love how happy and colourful the crab looks, but it was such a pain masking him (or her?) before rolling on the background with Versamark. I also like how colouring with Copics turns out of Kraft CS. Must try more if this in the future. Thanks for looking!

FTL 93

Have you ever looked at a sketch and fallen instantly in love with it? I fell for FTL 93, and I think it's da bomb!

I broke out my brand new Turning a New Leaf set from PTI as well as a sentiment from this year's anniversary set. After several weeks of crafter's block, it was a lot of fun to make something and enjoy the process. I'm tempted to use the same sketch with Fancy Flourishes next. Thanks for looking!
