My first sample is By the Sea and the beautiful paper, By the Shore. I also used Pierced Squares and Squares dies. The image is colored with copics, sky with a cloud template, distress ink and acrylic paint. The sand and shells are from Mudd Puddles.

My next sample uses By the Sea again for the sentiment and another piece from the awesome paper, By the Shore (it’s hard to cover up any of this paper!!). I also used Flip Flop Fun, Ornate Ovals, Ovals, and Flip Flops

This one is very CAS for me, I just wanted that paper to  pop!! I even used the piece trimmed from the side for the sentiment.

VintageBirdLabelsTri-frt

My first sample uses a tri-shutter from Fun and Fancy Folds and the new revised set, Vintage Bird Labels. This is a set I designed several years ago that now coordinates with Vintage Borders and Vintage Labels…two of my favorites die sets! I also used Ornate Ovals, Ovals, and some paper from Blushing Rose Collection.

I used Colorbox chalk ink, Dark Moss, Cheeky, and Splash to carefully ink up the images. I also used a stamp positioner so I could ink up one color at a time. I added a little fine tip marker to fill in some of the flowers.

VintageBirdLabelsTri-clsupI used the 3 individual stamps from the set to make the border. The edges of each panel and label are sponged with Distress Frayed Burlap.

ManyBlessingsFL-LatticeFragWM

My next sample uses a new stamp/die duo, Many Blessings and the new Flower Lattice die. I used the Flower Lattice die to make a background framed by Pierced Squares. Fragrance, is colored with Copics and cut with Layered Lacey Ovals on Ovals colored to match.
