Crumpled flower card

I was trying to push my boundries a little this summer and I had seen several different versions of crumpled paper flowers on the web and I thought I would give it a try.  This card is one of the results.  I really liked making these flowers and did several of them this summer.  I did not post one earlier so I thought I would share it with you now.

This is one of the techniques I'll be teaching at my next card club meeting.  Once again all papers, inks and stamps are from Close to My Heart.  Thanks for looking in on me and I'll talk to you soon!

September Stamp of the Month Mojo

Hi everyone!  This week's mojo sketch was a perfect match to the Close to My Heart stamp of the month.  As soon as I saw the sketch this set popped into my brain.
I also used some of my favorite papers from the Silhouette paper pack.  The stamp set is call "Treasures".  I hope you are having a great week.  Thanks for stopping by I'll talk to you again soon.

Mojo 103

Hi Everyone.  I hope you all had a fun and restful three day weekend.  We were able to get a few things done around the house.  I always feel a sense of accomplishment when I can do that.  So my theme for this week's Mojo Monday challenge was "There's no place like home".
Here is the actual sketch.
Here is my take on it.  I used some of the cute new stamps from Close to My Heart.  The background was stamped using one of the stamps from the set "Welcome Home" with Vineyard Berry ink and then I brayered over the top with Indian Corn Blue.  I think it gives it a kind of victorian feel. 
Hey, thanks for stopping by and I'll talk to you again soon.

Another Tag Tuesday

Here's a quick little card with a tag.  This is a 3x3 card layout from the "Wishes" card making book by Janette Lynton.  I used some scraps from my scrap box and a little snip of ribbon and a matching brad.  It only took a couple of minutes.
Have a super day and thanks for stopping by.  I'll talk to you again soon.

Everything except the ribbon is from Close to My Heart
