While I do love diamonds, I am always drawn to pearls in jewelry. I love chunky pearls, delicate pearls, necklaces, bracelets, rings.... And I know our Lobsters from The Rabbit Hole Designs May release love these pearl rings!
I stamped the pearl oyster image from Lobsters for Life three times on white cardstock and colored in with alcohol markers. The sentiment was stamped and wonky cut for a fun look. I added pearls to match for extra bling!
You know, looking at these, they make cute pacifiers too, for a fun baby card!
Recently I had a far away friend lose a dear family member, and I wanted to send a card. I love this sentiment of remembrance from Stamp Simply.
I made a background with acetate and three Distress Oxide inks on white watercolor cardstock. When dry, I stamped my sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I stamped my Coneflower in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored in with Copic markers, and cut with the coordinating die from the Bundle. I adhered it to the card panel with foam tape, and embellished with rhinestones. A light pink mat, and a hot pink folded card base, and voila!
Supplies from Stamp Simply:
- hot pink, light pink, white cardstock
- foam tape, liquid glue, acetate
- alcohol markers
- Distress Oxide inks
- Elizabeth Craft Designs blanket stitch rectangle die
Today's share from The Rabbit Hole Designs is made with my husband and me in mind. We will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary in July. Our married life has been such a fun adventure, and we have traveled many places together by car. So my inspiration for this card came from our explorations of the country and the world over the last several decades! Wow, that sounds OLD. Anyway -----
I used a hand cut cloud stencil that a stamping friend made for me many years ago to make the subtle sky, and stamped my sentiment (Just Married 4x4) on top. I then masked and stenciled a road-shaped section from the new Fiddlehead Stencil 6x6, and adhered it to the card front. I thought it made a cute "cobblestone" type design for the car. I stamped, clear embossed, and colored the car image (Copic markers), and then cut it out with the Coordinating Die. It looks like they are ready for another adventure!
Thanks for stopping by today!
It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches! Sweet and talented Amy is our hostess this week!
I absolutely ADORE the stamps from AALL & Create, and I have quite a collection! I have decided that they need ink, rather than me just adoring them from afar. Ha! So today I am using the Serengeti stamp set.
I used the A5 #136 stencil with two different DOX inks (Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive), and made some "grass." I then stamped the tree in Memento Black Ink and colored with Copics. I did the same with that CUTE lion, and fussy cut him out, popping him up with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment (me telling me that at this busy time of year at my work) and cut out a fishtail banner (SB) to follow the sketch. I think it's SO cute!
I hope you will join our sketch challenge, and add your creations to our gallery! This challenge will end at 3:00 EDT time on Monday, May 9. Be sure to take a peek at the gorgeous cards my teammates have made on the FMS blog to inspire you!

I cut three circles, my cups/handles, and the Coffee word die out of the 6x6 paper pad. My sentiment and tag were cut from white cardstock, and a seam binding bow was tied around the tag. I arranged my circles on the kraft card panel, and adhered them with liquid glue, and did the same with the cups on the tag. I popped the tag up with foam tape and adhered it to the kraft card panel. I cut an extra Coffee Word Die out of white cardstock for stability, and glued it to the patterned die, then adhered partially to the tag piece.
I stamped my sentiment in black ink, and popped it up with foam tape. I added a few enamel dots to pick up the peach color in the paper and adhered the entire panel to a moss green cardstock folded card base.
