Then when you pull the blue ribbon tab, this is what it looks like. I just love this kind of card! The cupcake stamps were Inkadinkado stamps that I found recently. I stamped the cupcakes with black Memento ink and then colored them with my Copic Markers.Check out the video tutorial on Michelle's blog...then try one of these cards. SO much fun! Until next time.... Hugs!

It's that time again. The One Layer Wednesday challenge from Susan Raihala's blog Simplicity .
For this week's challenge, we were to use a stamp that is considered a faux embellishment. I chose to use a scallop stitch stamp on my card.
Then I stamped a few blooms between the "stitching" and colored them with my Prismacolor pencils.

Recently I was given the opportunity to create with some of the fabulous GCD Lydia collection. This is another layout I've completed from that collection. This one is all boy! I love how the papers were so perfect for the "John Deere" layout!
The little tags at the top were some pictures I found. The big tractor is from a photo and I cut it out and put it on pop dots. I stitched some "tracks" for the tractor wheels and added a little faux stitching around the yellow background. The title letters were cut with the Silhouette and mounted with pop dots.
These photos are three of my grandsons - Adam, Allen, and Jacob. We were at the Jay Peanut Festival (we live in the country - what can I say!) The festival had 20+ John Deere tractors displayed and these boys climbed on almost every one of them! We also had the opportunity to taste-test boiled peanuts (YUM!), fried peanuts, roasted peanuts...and of course, we bought a few green peanuts to bring home with us to boil and freeze. YUM-M-M-M-Y!!! Nothing better than a salty boiled peanut. (I've been told that's a "Southern" thing! LOL!).
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time...
