Poppies & Grunge

Another card using Gorgeous Grunge, Truly Grateful, Express Yourself along with Pleasant Poppies.

I used Chalktalk framelit on Whisper White before I stamped the poppies; then colored Poppies with copic markers. Adhered poppy image to black matting and trimmed edges.

Lakeside Cove Scenes

Playing around again with large lakeside cove set from Stampscapes.

All scenes were created by starting with glossy white paper, stamping the components of the scenes with memento ink, and then brayering the different colors over the top.

If interested in ordering, I ordered directly from and the set was Lakeside Cove Large - Nature Unmounted sheet.

Sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Really Good Greetings set.

This is a CASE of one created by Kevin Nakagawa. Added word window punch and decorative brads.

My computer is down so I will post details later. It has been way too long since my last post :) I have been enjoying summertime while it's here. Lots of good times with friends and family. But I was able to sneak in a little play time with some of the new goodies from the 2013 - 2014 catalog!
