I'm a born again Christian, married to a wonderful husband for 17 years. I have three children, and five grandchildren. I also have two step-daughters. We are empty nesters though, so in my spare time, I love to go to my little craft area and make cards. It is an addiction...
I've always had some kind of artistic craft going on in my life. Quilting, Counted cross stitch, scrapbooking, you name it. But when I purchased my first stamps, I knew it was something I could really love. It really grew after I was led to Splitcoaststampers, where I learned a lot about design, techniques and products to help my creativity! Now, I am totally addicted to Papertrey Ink. They have wonderful designers, and fabulous products. And, I've made some really nice blog friends too.
Well, I love my dies, but it was great to see tips from Ashley this week for fussy cutting things without a die. It really helped! I went to Pinterest for some inspiration, as I knew I wanted to use a sentiment from Fancy Folk Art for my card.
I found this beauty! I just loved the yellow background, and I used that for my starting point.
This is my finished card. I used Copics to color the main image, instead of stamping, and the technique for cutting the sentiment worked perfectly!
