Here is the card I made for this week's sketch MFTWSC213. Don't look too close at the coloring - realized I have the shading on opposite side of what it should be with the sunshine from the top corner. Oh well.

Made this card today after seeing a beautiful card by Jan Tink where she used the new Stampin Up Lotus Blossom. She had a single flower floating on rippling blue water. I have also been wanting to try the shaving cream reinker technique so I made this background paper using several blue and green reinkers. Then I stamped 3 lotus flowers but only used the 1st 2 layers of the stamp. The set has 3 layers to the flower but I like how it looks using only 2. I then added some pearls, the sentiment and a few highlights with my white pen.

I finally finished my first ever Jelly Roll Quilt. I think it turned out pretty well. Still have many things I need to improve on. I did much better on the binding than on previous projects. Now if I could learn how to sew straight.
I made this card for the weekly challenge - USEIT2015. Every week I choose a stamp I have never used or at least haven't used in a long time. This stamp has never seen ink - First Love from The Artful Stamper. I really like how it turned out. A quick and easy Valentine :)

I made this card and am using it for 3 challenges: Week 1 of a new challenge I am going to try and do called USE IT 2015. I also am submitting the card for the MFTWSC210 and MFT Monthly Color Challenge 13. For the USE IT 2015 weekly challenge I have to choose any stamp set that has never seen ink or is rarely used and decide how many cards I will make with the stamp. I then post the set and # of cards on Splitcoast stampers and hopefully make the card and upload it to the gallery. This will sort of force me to use stamps I have never used - something I have wanting to do. So here is week 1.

Today I made this tag based on the Tim Holtz January tag of the month series. He has such great technique ideas. I just about made his exact tag with a few differences based on the supplies I had on hand. I sure do love the distress stain and want to get some of his new stain in a spray bottle.
