I cut out two different sized circles with the Creative Memories cutting system out of Inkadinkado masking paper.

The stars aligned and the stamp set and die-cuts came together :)
Ink is Distress ink-Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans, and yellow is Squeezed Lemonade.
Black ink is Hero Arts. I love how dark and sharp it is.
I set a Making Memories eyelet for the hole on top and used Karen Foster floss as the hanging component.

Manly Monday Linus Baby Boy

A Little Something Purse card

I did brush some white powdered chalk on it.
The outside edges were inked with distress ink by Ranger (Spun Silk & Mahagony).

Just for You purple and pink

I stamped the Stampin Up flower stamp with lack ink onto white cardstock and colored it in with Copic Markers.

Crayon Resist technique

I stamped the Stampendous leaves stamp with black ink onto white cardstock. Then I colored it with SU colored pencils. From there I colored over the stamped image with a white crayon. I then inked the paper with blue distress ink and the crayon area resisted the ink.

Deep Red Stamps Tree of Life Friend Cards

I used the Tree of Life stamp by Deep Red Stamps
Heat embossed in gold and then copper. Random paper on the top one and sentiment die-cut by Clearly Besotted. The bottom card is not my favorite because the sentiment is too big and looks stupid. The sentiment is vellum by Creative Memories and I use Xyron create a sticker to adhere it. The image is on a Spellbinders die-cut that was inked with distress ink. The package for the burgundy patterned paper says, "Divine Collection". Hmm. The background patterned paper is by Prima.
