It's all about bling, flowers, and sweet girly touches for any of your

my latest:

A simple, pretty fall card....the 4th and final of the cards for
the Glimmer Mist (GM) card class I am teaching at Hannah's, the LSS.
The leaf stamp is from Unity (Simple Blessings....truly a versatile
set!) I used Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge for the stamping, and for
the soft inked edges. The soft background pieces were made using
the Sugar Maple and Deep Plum GM and a "wash effect" first
spray, then quickly swipe the extra off. It leaves that soft brushed pretty!

Really amazing if you look back at all four cards, how different they
can look using the same 3 colors of GM, but using very different

Well....time to get inky...hope this inspires you to go get crafty!!
