Glittery Flowers


I finally inked up my Women of Life stamp set.  I stamped the image on Kraft cardstock with Ocean Tides ink.  It really does show up better in real life than this photo.  I added glitter to the flowers using a glue pen and glitter, then added the buttons from my Aqua Mist and Ocean Tides collections.  I inked all the edges with Fresh Snow ink.  The sentiment is from Everyday Button Bits and is also stamped in Ocean Tides.  I’m sorry this picture is so lousy, I had to take the picture on a rainy day.  No matter how much I played with it in Photoshop, I just couldn’t capture the “realness” of the card. 

Here are the supplies I used.

Stamps Women of Life, Everyday Button Bits (Papertrey)
Paper Kraft, Aqua Mist Bitty Dot Basics (Papertrey)
Ink Ocean Tides, Fresh Snow
Embellishments Aqua Mist & Ocean Tides Buttons, twine (Papertrey),  glitter, white sheer ribbon
Tools glue pen, Apron Lace border punch (Fiskars), corner chomper,


Thanks for stopping by.

Karen this a real pretty and clean card. I love the kraft paper with the aqua mist. And those sparkly flowers, just beautiful. I used your word art on one of my cards yesterday. If your interested in seeing it, my blog is:

And thank you by the way in being so generous with your lovely scripture word art! Blessings, B
