January Cards

I had some ribbon scraps I decided to use up. I used the Paint Prints (retired) stamp set to make this card. To make the 2-tone petals I first inked the stamp in one color. Then I used the brush end of a marker to add the darker shading.

Build a Blossom

Here are a few things I have made while playing with my new stamp set and punch "Build a Blossom".

Black Magic

I used the black magic technique (directions can be found at
and the stamp set Eastern Blooms to create this card.

Circle Card Set

I found this set of 8 circle shaped cards at Michaels' for $1.00! I added a few stamps and are the results.
