Something Old, Something New...........

Something Borrowed, Something Blue


Judy is hosting the Limited Supplies challenge on Splitcoast today. What a fun one, I ended up making 2 cards. Both cards feature images from a stamp set to be released by Innovative Stamp Creations the week of 9/2. I know I have used these stamps several times, but I just love the new images coming out! This set is called Marvels of Nature II.

Old: Textile Embossing Folder (it is the first one I ever bought)

New: Images & Blue/Brown Ribbon

Borrowed: Ribbon Treatment & Sentiment layer inspired by Nitestamper/Chat as seen HERE

Blue: Baja Breeze CS (new as of Tuesday) Ribbons, Ink


LSC183Love Bird_SaK

Marvels of Nature II was used on this card as well. Love was stamped in Stazon on the opaque tag is from the Artsy Mini Book Shapes Series Circle sheet.

Here's the run down:

Old: Retired SU! Elizabeth Fancy Fibers meant to be dyed w/ reinkers. (never before used, does that make it new too?)

New: Sneak Peek of new stamp sheet to be released by Innovative Stamp Creations the week of 9/2

Borrowed: Colors and inspiration from Lost in the 60's/Diane ensemble seen HERE

Blue: Fibers dyed with Faded Jeans Distress ink. Pearlized Distress Mist/Faded Jeans Distress Ink-Perfect Pearls-Water. Sponged edges Faded Jeans.
