I see a trend - Another bookmark/tag for the Divas!

I just LOVED this weeks colour combo of Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Wild Wasabi. It sounded so much like Spring...and then it snowed...again...*sigh*

I can't believe that it's March 18th and there's STILL all that snow on the ground - ARGH!!

Perhaps this will brighten up that dreariness outside:


My favourite part is that big fat Wisteria Wonder Chevron Ribbon at the top. :)

I used my markers to colour in the stems (Wild Wasabi) and the flowers (a blend of Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum) and then stamped them on the Very Vanilla Cardstock. I then stamped the flowers several more times and fussy cut them to add some dimension to the top most flower.

If you're coming to class on April 5th, this is one of the items we'll be creating!

What do you think?

STAMPS: Blessed Easter
INK: None, I used Markers
PAPERS: Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Dies, Chevron Ribbon, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'!

Utah Divas Flowers!

I won't bore you to tears with another diatribe on my dislike of Summer Starfruit...instead, I'll just show you what I created:


I decided on a bookmark for this week and I used one of the stamp sets from the Occasions Catalogue called Blessed Easter.

I used the direct to rubber technique with markers, blending the Gumball Green and Garden Green for the stems and adding Summer Starfruit to the flowers.

It's my mom's birthday today, so I think I'll send it to her! She's an "old school" reader, like me - preferring books to a kindle/e-reader. This bookmark would be just perfect!


What do you think?

STAMPS: Blessed Easter
INK: No actual ink pads were used in the creation of this bookmark :)
