BEWARE!! this will be a long post I have some catching up to do so please be patient with me. Been busy this weekend catching up on the challenges..WOW. So here it goes.
This OLC is for Create a Scene:Inside the garden
I love garden weddings near the water. There is something about it that is so romantic. I don't know if it's the couple starting a new journey or the setting of the garden with the arch framing the lake. Stamps -Art Impression, Studio 112 and Stampscapes. The scene was stamped in Black Archival ink and Tim Holtz distress ink.
This Card is for the challenge at For Your Inspiration Challenge # 33 this was the lovely picture they gave as your inspiration. I love the rich colors of the greens and blue tones. I love structural details of the arches on the gazebo. It reminded me of the garden arches that I have seen for weddings like the one in the previous picture. I bought this stamp set last year on vacation and didn't know how to use it. This picture gave me the inspiration to try and found that I love this new stamp set. Since I love stampscapes modular system this seem natural to use. I water colored this picture using 140lb cold press watercolor paper, Tim Holtz seasonal Distress Ink and Art impression stamps. The arbor trees framed in the gazebo so I added a frame around my arch.
OLW#96 Birthday Blings
This is a one layer card stamped in Black Archival ink. The stamp is from Studio 112. I love cupcakes and butter cream frosting. I fell in love with this stamp. Now the craze is cupcakes for birthdays, graduation and weddings with a small cake for the bide and groom. when I worked I would make cupcakes and bring them into work (before I was married and had kids eons ago) I remember one of the Dr's saying aren't we a little to old to be making cupcakes. Well! This stamp explains it all..lol I embossed this with Oval spellbinder and added bling from gems that I have no idea were they came from. They showed up on my desk one day. The inside says: you can have your cake and eat it too life is short Happy Birthday!
Final Card Challenge is from Less Is More Challenge #76 One Layer~3 of Anything
While trying to beat the 95-100' temps we have been watching movies in the air conditioning. This card was inspired by the movie" Sabrina" it was a remake with Harrison Ford. The guys would call it a chick flick and yep it is! My daughter and I watch it and dream of someday going to Paris. She is taking French class and is hoping they go there for school of course she will need a chaperon and I gladly volunteer...lol. I used 3 stamps and 3 different inks. The stamps were Tim Holtz (Script), Studio 112(sentiment) and Stampabilities(Eiffel Tower). The Inks were Tim Holtz Distress Black Soot, Red Staz On and Black Archival.
