Waltzingmouse June 2012 Blog Party Post

It’s time for the Waltzingmouse June Blog Party (it’s always the 17th of every month).  This month’s is a gorgeous color inspiration.  I love teal so was a happy camper making up this card.  The card details are below.  Happy blog hopping! 

I embossed the doilie image and then used the distress inks to make a saturated background.  I broke up the very strong panel so that the sentiment would be eye-catching.  And then added the gorgeous sparklets to finish off the card.  I am loving this card! 

Hope you are having a blissful day!  Thanks for stopping by….

  5. ACK, Kristie! What a unique card, it’s so amazing! I just love the way you split the panel and blended the inks over the doily images! The little flower baubles are perfect for this design!

  16. This card is SO inspiring – it’s a technique I’ve done but not recently – but what you did by breaking up the bold design and placing the sentiment there is just spectacular – it makes this so very interesting! Great design element – I love it and will keep it with my “fab” ideas to try to imitate folder. HUGS!

    I love how you have used the emboss resist technique with the doily stamp set – its gorgeous. The sentiment really does ‘pop’. I was laughing at your ‘about me’ summary – I am a 40-something Mom of 3 boys and I craft at night too when they’re asleep and the house is quite. lol

  18. This is amazing. Love the resist technique with this doily stamp, but the Distress Strains really make it glow!

  19. Beautiful and I love the embossed images , so pretty!

  20. LOVE LOVE LOVE ~ I love the tie dye feel of this SO MUCH!!! I am going to have to try my hand at this but I will for sure need to have the right stamps ~

  21. wow you are pretty much a genius with ink blending!

  22. Love it!! My kids are in love with tie dye right now because it is a tradition for each class at their school to have class shirts made by some of the moms for field days near the end of school year. I will have to make their end of year cards with this method. TFS your great card!
