designed by Shari, stamped by me. Here we punched plain white tissue paper up into a ball, then smooth it back out and glue to a piece of whisper white card stock. then ink up your swallowtail stamp good and stamp that baby on there. Used a little 2 way glue pen on the wing to add some dazzling diamonds for a bit of sparkle.

paper: pumpkin pie, basic black, whisper white, tissue paper
ink: basic black, pumpkin pie
stamps: swallowtail, petite pairs
tools: scallop oval punch, large oval punch,

magnificent maple

designed by Shari and stamped by me!;) This was a fun technique. we took painters tape, ripped of a small piece, pressed it onto an open ink pad and then tape it to the white piece and rip it back off. the ink stays put and the ugly tape is gone! The ink splatters are from the stamp set gorgeous grunge.

ink: rich razzleberry, always artichoke, so saffron
stamps: magnificent maple, gorgeous grunge, sassy salutations
tools: big shot, hounds tooth embossing folder, large oval punch, labels collection framelit

flower shop

very clean and simple. I needed a few cards quickly and this is what came together! I stamped that flower first in raspberry ripple and then used my watercolor pen and strawberry slush ink to color the tips of the petals. Like I've said before quick and kinda sloppy is key so it doesn't look so perfect!;)
