This is a emboss resist card that I made with stamps from CHF (Stained Glass BGer and Large Daisy Detail stamps). I used Stampin' Up inks barely banana, only orange, ruby red, tempting turquoise, lovely lilac and ballet blue as well as clear and black detail embossing powder on Versamark ink. Cardstock is SU whisper white and basic black, Current Inc. designer paper. The button is from my button box and the embroidery floss from my cross-stitching days (probably DMC). A great tutorial by Keri Sereika is on CHF forum. Try it out! It's easy!
This is another card, unfortunately made from necessity, as we had an old friend pass from this earth unexpectedly this week. I made this card for the family. This is one of my favorite SU stamp sets, Close as a Memory. I love the sentiments. I also used versamark on the background and flowers, and Pearl Ex on the flowers. Ink colors for the sentiment were in Elegant Eggplant. I'm pretty sure the cardstock was plum and lilac colors from SU, but they were in a pile of scraps, so you'll have to take my word for it :)
If you can stand one more creation in the bunch, here is my first attempt at coloring one of the Thomas Kinkade images from CHF. I only have one stamp and this one is called "Wish Cottage". I actually stamped and colored it a week ago, but I found it takes me that long to like it well enough to share it with others who dare to venture onto my post! It's inked in Ranger's Distress ink, Walnut stain (also from CHF) and colored with Crayola colored pencils.
Well that's the time I have for today...and it's really tomorrow! Eeek! My daughter leaves for a week at a Christian Youth Camp tomorrow (um...today! :) and I've got to get rested up for the trip! (Read: the goodbye!) Have a blessed Sunday everyone!
