New Colors

I would really like to give away the products that are shown at the top of this page. However, I cannot seem to get a hold of Jane. Jane, please email me at so I can arrange to ship these goodies out to you. Because I would like to share these items with those of you that were kind enough to visit, I am going to do another drawing on June 1 if I do not here from Jane by then.

The card at the top has a Spiced Marmalade background. I stamped the bird and the black speckles in black soot. I also colored some paper in Black Soot and then used a corner puncher to get the corner accents. The outer part of the card was distressed with Spiced Marmalade, Brick Red, and Vintage Photo. I then used Antiqued Bronze Distressed Stickles to go over the outside of the card.

This has been such a great week. Sunday, it was my birthday and once again I would like to thank those of you that stopped by. I have been itching to make more cards but there was some other things that I needed to do. And, yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our 14th Wedding Anniversary. He took the day off and we saw Date Night which was a funny and overall terrific movie. So today when I was trying to decide what to do, I decided to work with colors that I do not use very often but like. I used a variety of colors for this card. First I used some Spiced Marmalade and then spritzed with the Mini Mister. I had a concoction of Berry Twist Perfect Pearls, a drop of Antique Linen Re-inker and water. I then stamped a floral stamp with Worn Lipstick all over the card. I then spritzed once again with the Mini Mister. Then I used Black Soot (my first time I've used this color), I brushed on Blue Patina with the smaller brush and then used the larger to brush off the excess and once again used my Mini Mister. I decided to add a small "Get Well" tag that was colored using Mustard Seed and a spritz with the Mini Mister.
