Summery Lizzie Anne!!


I just received my very first Lizzie Anne stamps from Lindsey (Jacksonbelle) the other day. She is having a little contest where you could win a Gift Certificate to use in her online store........how great is that?? There is still time to enter, so go here for details!!

Anyhoo, they arrived in my mailbox on my day off so I got to make a couple of cards with my new Jolies Fleurs set over the last couple of days. I have been eyeing this set for a while now and the contest sort of pushed me over the edge......like that was really hard!!

For this card I used the daily Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS to make a summery coloured card and combined it with a Dirty Girl Challenge which was to use a lot of brads on your card. Well, I am a hoarder by trade ya know, so using all those brads was really HARD, but I did it!! Anyway, my jump off point was the We R Memory Keepers patterned paper with all those lovely colours. I stamped the big flower image on Shimmery White cardstock with Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and used my SU markers to colour it in. I went back with the same markers and went over certain areas in the same colours to shade and I don't know if you can tell in the photo, but in real life, it almost looks 3-D. I punched out the image with my Mega Circle Punch and layered it on a Giga Scalloped Circle Punch in Ruby Red. The card base is Old Olive with a layer of Ruby Red, two different coordinating patterned papers then a strip of Old Olive with some Ruby Red brads. I added some Old Olive brads in the four corners and pop dotted the center image. The sentiment at the bottom is done using my Paper Tray stamp set and the word window punch!

So I've entered this one in the contest and another one too, but I'll share it on another day. I've gotta get ready to go to work now........work on a Saturday....boooo!! Have a great weekend!!

Great Card, and I understand about the hoarding and using! I also want to thank you for posting about the black ink that you used -- I have been ordering all the different black inks that I hear/see being talked about -- and I am impressed by how different inks react with different papers. The Archival Versafine is amazing! Thanks for sharing about it.
