Today is Teapot Tuesday, and Barbara20 is hostessing for Mothermark this week. She's got a fabulous nautical-themed teapot she's given us for our inspiration this week. You can get the details here. This is a one-layer card. I brayered all the various colors to create my sand, ocean, and sky. I used my Cricut Life's a Beach cartridge for the ship, lighthouse, sand dollar, and starfish. I used Liquid Applique for the water's foam.
My next card is in honor of my friend and fellow Rubbernecker DT member, Cathleen (aka ctorina), who was chosen as the featured stamper on Splitcoast this past Sunday. Cathleen makes such elegant and beautiful cards. It was an honor to case her. After I settled on wanting to use Blush Blossom, I knew I was going to have to make my own designer paper, which I love to do. I stamped Baroque Motifs and Linen bg in Blush Blossom and then finger walked French Script in True Thyme over that. I used my finger dauber in Blush Blossom reinker to sponge the edges of each piece of cardstock.
This last card I made for the Inspiration Challenge this past Saturday. I used a napkin transfer technique. This is where you split the top layer of the napkin from the back, place it on the shiny side of freezer paper, put a piece of paper on top of the napkin and press with a hot iron. The napkin sticks to the freezer paper. Then you can adhere this to a piece of cardstock. I love these napkins I bought at Michael's.
Thanks for stopping in! I hope to get to your blog soon, too!
