Out West Coasters

Good morning! I've really love my new stamp sets here is another
using "Out West" set by Theresa Momber. The coaster set I got at Michael's it comes with a black holder you can keep them in. You can change the inserts as you like. I tend to do a seasonal theme. Next, I think I will use my new set " guiding light" by Rupa Shevde.
I used copic's to color the images. Hope you have a wonderful day!

In the stables

Hi all, Hope you had a nice weekend. I did, I got to spend a little time with my girls and that always makes my day. Here's my first card using my daughter Theresa's new stamp set "Out West" by Gina K Designs. I've been real excited about this and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I used wood graining to make the stable, copics to color the horse some brads and some twine.
The wood graining is on creamy Carmel paper and the ink I used is white and chocolate chip. Hope you like it. Have a good one.

Califorina Poppies

Hi everyone, Hope you all are well! Here's a new card I wanted to share. It's from a set called " Poppy Patch" by Flourishes. I stamped the image on white cardstock, colored it with copics. I then went over the whole image with my versa mark pen and embossed it with clear. I stamped another image of the leaves colored, embossed and cut it out, then added it to my card. I used nesties and some ribbon. I sponged so saffron around the image but it didn't show up in my photo. The copics I used are: R08, YR15, R02, Y11 and YG03.
I want to welcome two new followers to my blog, Cat and Phree, you made my day. Thank you!

Botanial Green

I made this card for stamptv potluck Friday challenge. We are to incorporate stamping with material or object that is not a stamp. I decided on grass. I found some but not easy here as winter has not let go yet! I tied a tie wrap around it and pressed it on my stamp pad and then pressed it on my card stock I had to use a paper towel to press it on. The paper I used SU. Always artichoke and old olive. The ink pad is wild wasabi. The stamp set is from Gina k. Botanical garden by Asela. I hope you have a great day.
