Greetings! So nice of all of you to drop by today. My post today is for the Word Wednesday Challenge over at 365 Cards. Our word this week is "Soft." I chose this beautifully soft NiceCrane Designs focal image. The die cut is by Alterations and was painted with Ranger Crackle Paint in Milled Lavender. The background and sentiment by Oxford Impressions were stamped with Regal Purple StazOn Ink. Distress Glitter in Rock Candy was added to the card for sparkle. I look forward to seeing what you create for the challenge. Hugs, Yvonne

Greetings! Just a quick post to share with you another card created with one of those lovely NiceCrane Design images. I layered the image over several sizes of paper doilies. Tucked behind the image is an image by Oxford Impressions. The corner images and sentiment are from the same plate by Oxford Impressions.
Finishing touches include paper flowers, Dresden Snowflakes by Retro Art Cafe, some gem pearls and vintage seam binding. I hope you are having a good weekend. Thanks as always for dropping by. Yvonne
Greetings! It is time once again for a new challenge over at Inkspirational. This time, we are working from the Photo below as inspiration. You will want to be sure to pop over and see what the rest of the design team has created and I hope you will consider entering a project of your own.
For my card, I was inspired by the colors and the bird. I chose a set of images from Oxford Impressions for my card. StazOn Ink and Distress Markers were used to color in the image. Old Page Distress Ink was blended over the images to mute the color a bit. Thanks for dropping by. Hugs, Yvonne

I recently rediscovered NiceCrane and just fell in love with their vintage Christmas images. I just had to use one right away! I kept the tones of my card to Vintage Photo, Kraft and Bright White. I am so far behind with being ready for the Holidays! How about you? The next few weeks should be quite interesting. Hoping all of you are doing well. Hugs, Yvonne

Greetings! It is Wednesday and time for another Word Challenge over at 365 Cards. Our word this week is "Feathered." How will you interpret the challenge? I chose to work with this gorgeous plate of images from Artistic Outpost called MidWinter. Most of the images were stamped with Timber Brown StazOn Ink and the images were colored in with Fired Brick, Walnut Stain and Iced Spruce Distress Inks. I added Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter for sparkle. It can be seen a bit better in the closeup below.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with for today's challenge. I am also submitting today's card for the December Referral Program over at Artistic Outpost. Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Yvonne

Greetings and welcome to all my new and faithful followers. There's a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this time you will have all of December to submit your project. Our theme is "In the Holiday Spirit" and Anything Goes! Please pop over to see what my brilliant Design Team Sisters have dreamed up for you and then I hope you will submit an entry of your own. One lucky submitter will win a $20 gift voucher from our sponsor "FlonzCraft." For my own piece I began with a piece of background paper by Tim Holtz. The focal image is a new image by Crafty Individuals, which was painted with Distress Markers and glittered with Distress Glitter. The sentiment, bear, candy cane and train engine at the bottom of the page are by Oxford Impressions. The Dresden Tree is from Retro Art Cafe. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs, Yvonne

Greetings Followers! Today's post is for Word Wednesday over at 365 Cards. Our word this week is "Thankful." I was excited to be able to ink up this adorable pilgrim child by Lost Coast Design. I stamped the focal image onto a manila tag, added some vines by Artistic Outpost along the bottom of the tag and distressed the entire tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The digital image to the right of the focal image, the leaves at the top and the sentiment are all by Gecko Galz. I stained a paper doily with Wild Honey Distress Stain and layered all the pieces over a white card blank that was distressed with Vintage Photo and Wild Honey Distress Stain. A bit of spritz and flick technique and the corners were stamped with a complimentary stamp I received recently from Crafty Individuals. The pumpkin dye cuts were left over from an earlier project as was the seam binding bow that was colored with Distress Paint. A bit of brown burlap string and some buttons from my stash from my stash complete my card. For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, Happy Thanksgiving. It is nice to stop for a day and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives, to eat too much and spend time with family. Hugs, Yvonne
