Using A Corner Punch To Make A Circle Medallion...

Today I'm happy to share with you this cute little medallion in the middle of
my card.  I have to give ALL CREDIT to Becca Feekan for this.  I used her very good directions and video of how to make this round medallion with a corner punch.
Yes, a CORNER PUNCH...who would of thought you could make a circle medallion
 with a corner punch????
Here is a direct link to her webpage and how to make this ~
(In case you might also want to give it a try, too?)

I couldn't have did this medallion without Becca's wonderful directions. Thank You Becca! I was quite pleased as to how it turned out and wanted to share this card right away with you all.  I decided on a monochromatic color of all purple and purple chalk ink for this card and hoped it might work well?  I think it did? 

I used my Spellbinders Frameabilities Decorative Frame this time.  When I first bought this frame, I was not to excited when I got it home and began using it.  I didn't care for the odd size and didn't know how to chalk the ink with my sponge dobbers through the frame.  I later learned that technique while scouting the web and came across someone who explained how to chalk through the frames small openings (don't remember who)?  It then hit me like a ton of bricks.  A light bulb moment.  Aah...
I had recently let my daughter borrow the Spellbinders frame because I wasn't crazy about it. After getting more info on how to use the chalking effect, I asked my daughter to bring it to me when she came at the Easter holiday's to visit with us this year.  I was eager to get chalking with the frame and try what I had read. 
I have also made another lovely card with this frame but you will have to wait till later in the year to see it.  Mainly because I will be giving it to a member of my family for their birthday and don't want the person to see it here before they receive it.   So bare with me.  I will show it later on.

Hope you like this card as much as I do? 
Till next week... Happy Stamping ~ Stampers.....

Periwinkle Blue and More Watercoloring...

I love the color Periwinkle Blue.   Something about periwinkle blue that is
pleasing to the eye.  The picture is just a "little bit darker"  than in person.  I tried to
get the picture as sharp as possible for you to see the water coloring.

 I used a stamp from Inkado Stamp Co. that I'm fond of, with a lovely flower and
hummingbird (Do not know the name of it.)  I used my water color paper and water colored it with my Tombo Ink Pens and then cut it out and attached to the background that was embossed with Stampin-Up's Perfect Polka Dots.  The polka dots are a bit hard to see in this picture.  I used periwinkle grosgrain ribbon and wove it between the beautiful white background that I made with my Martha Stewart Double Arch Punch Set.

In this picture you can see a close up of how the water coloring looks up close and
as well as the ribbon intertwined between the lovely boarder effect.

Hope your week is a pleasant one until next week.  See you then ladies.

Medallion and Brocade

 As I mentioned before I love working with pink.  I hope that
your not tired of seeing to much pink yet on my blog? 

I made this card for my sister-in-laws birthday in April. 
The single medallion stamp I used set it off nicely on 
 on the brocade background.  I then took my pink chalk ink and used my dobber to
softly chalk each brocade with the soft pink color.  The last step was setting it off
with a background with Stampin-Up' "Punch Around The Page Stamp", a bow, and
two pearls attached to the medallion stamp on the top and bottom of the Sea Shell Stamp used from Martha Stewart. 

Easy but elegant...

See you next week with another card for your insperation. 
I'm always tickled when you stop by ladies.
Hurry back....

Mistakes Happen...

Happy Monday Stampers....

As labeled "Mistakes Happen", this card was a mistake.  Yes..a mistake.  When I started out creating this card originally  I didn't like the way it looked. I put it down and forgot about it.  Then found it again, later on.   I began taking it apart and played with it again.  Things just started falling into place.  I know sometimes I'll do a card and leave it a day or two and go back and look at it and and say to myself...I don't like that! Or..  I should have did this or have a better idea to add something or move something when looking at it again. I bet you've done that too? When I was done playing I really began to like it.  This is the final result. 

As always...I'm so glad you joined me here today!
Till next weeks post, I hope you have a blessed week?

Wedding Blessings...

Welcome back friends. It's always nice having you stop by for another visit.
I look forward to having you drop by whenever you can?

May and June seems to popular
 months for weddings, most generally?
I felt in the wedding spirit and began creating.


So Today I share with you another
wedding card I made. I purchased a Martha Stewarts Double
Arch Punch and put it to use with this one.  The back round is embossed
with Cuttlebugs ~ Kassie's Brocade which very much reminds me of a wedding
background.  I love brocade on a wedding card.  I then computer generated
a wedding verse to the inside that I feel was fitting for the occasion
for any bride and groom.

Hope to hear from you with your thoughts on this one?

Blessings to all….Leanne
