Being a consultant for over 17 years, I have found a great satisfaction in giving people quality tools to help them preserve memories in scrapbooks to last a lifetime and to create beautiful gifts and sentiments by hand. We have moved to a new area in northeastern Oklahoma and people who were long-time friends will notice a shift in the way I do business. I hope you will enjoy shopping and creating with me!

July 2013 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop--"Sweet Life"
Celebrate the "Sweet Life" with the fruits of your artistry in this hand-drawn look stamp set with beautiful apple, peaches and cherries and sentiments to coordinate.
While the photography may look a little messy, I wanted you to see the technique with which I colored in the images. You stamp the image on some glossy or photo paper and cut out certain parts of the image to create a template. Stamp the image on your card piece and lay the template over your image so you can sponge color onto your card. I also used the Desert Sand watercolor pencil to color in the branches. The white blossoms were made with our Chalk Marker. The Glitter paper adds some dazzle to the look. I used the Desert Sand pencil lightly with cross hatch marks around the fruit for a bit more texture. I loved the look of these cards when I finished! Now hop on over to Jean McNulty's Stampin' in Maui to complete your journey.
