Sorry everyone... work has been short people and I have been working just TOO much!!

Being able to put together a small stamp camp was fun.. and you get to see the cards that the ladies made.

The inside is just a simple note and from Six Sided Sampler.
This card I admit is a CASE... from the new catalog.. see pg 164.
I love the front of this little journal but it really needed to be the front of a card!!

Isn't this an amazing saying!! 
The leaf was cut by hand, I am sorry, but it had to be.
The doily was just cut in half, the linen thread and ...

You know I had to use the butterfly too!!

I hope you enjoy a bit of kindness from me today!!

Have a Great day getting Crafty!!

Sorry guys just a quick post today...

Working on Masculine cards last night AND had a helper with organizing my retired stuff, I am sooo Thankful!!!

Organizing first... 

When stuff retires I pull it all and then pick thru what to keep and what to pass on to others..

Here is one of my two bookshelves

This one is now has all the stamps, paper, ribbon,big shot stuff and of course some Misc... 

Yes that is a lot of stamps.... but ohhh I have sold some 
and given some away.

Today's card is a Masculine card either birthday or even Father's Day.

Yes, posting from the craft room again....
The Hardwood stamp is such a universal stamp.

The Thick Bakers Twine in Baked Brown Sugar.

Touches of Cherry Cobbler just add a splash of color, the Banners smallest Frame for our postage mark.

Have a Great day getting Crafty!!

They came... They finally got here, my Blendabilities!!

Oh the poor UPS man, I could not wait for him to get to the door, I had to go to the truck... He didn't even have to get out of the truck.  ;-)

So, trying to figure out what stamp to use, one that I have not seen before... 
Then remembering that another graduation card is needed ... here is how it started, 
The graduates favorite color, Yellow!!

Using only two groups... Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.
Note... the table is somewhat clean... this did not last long... 
Today's post is from the craft room.... so you can see some of the steps.

She sure looks pretty,  

Starting with the middle shade of Rich Razzleberry, and thinking what was going to make the most impact...

Using the Momento Ink you can still see the details of the original stamp!!

Using the darkest Rich Razzleberry for depth towards the middle and on the outlines (which I did get slightly heavy handed with, but this is my first time using these)

The Old Olive middle shade was used on the middle wing section and the lighter shade was used on the body.

Just to give you the complete picture, here you can see how heavy handed I got...


Now onto the the card... 

Have you pulled ribbon and just wasn't sure which to start with??

Have you used more then one type of ribbon before? 
Here is a challenge for you... Make a card with a minimum of three different types of ribbon/twine and post on Whispers In Ink on Facebook!!

Pulling colors that looked like they would highlight the colors used on the butterfly, Hello Honey, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow, Linen Thread and Burlap Ribbon (which did not get used) I wondered where to take this card... Knowing that the Graduate would be getting a check as a gift.. The card needed an inner pocket, and wanting to use the butterfly on the inside...

Stamping off the Swallowtail a couple of times so it would just be a hint of the butterfly. 
Dark enough to see, but light enough to be able to write over it.

Loving all the textures this ribbon adds... 

Looking forward to getting some of the new stamps and playing more with the Blendabilities practice makes perfect, hahaha

Have a Great day getting Crafty!!
