For Queen Karen, Splitcoaststampers Queen for the Day! …

16 Jul

Okay I can’t help myself, I just can’t put these Martha Stewart Punch around the Page punches down!  Hopefully soon I will break away and do something different, but for now I am just going to go with it and have fun! 😉 The punch set I used this time is the Double Arches set.  I thought I would try some new flowers this time.  here is Karen’s beautiful card that inspired me:  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1977299?&cat=500&ppuser=5282  Here is what I came up with… I feel that my punch around the page obsession is justified because she used part of a punch around the page set on her card on the right and the bottom card.  Anyway… that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! 😉

Here’s what I came up with….

I have been drooling over the flowers made by a lady that goes by kittie747 on Splitcoaststampers.  Her blog is an absolute thing of beauty!  She has loads of tutorials on there and tons and tons of inspiration!  Her blog address is:  http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/kittiekraft/  Thanks Kittie for all the wonderful tips and inspiration!

The stamp I used for this card is made by Inkadinkado – Flower Flourishes.  I stamped it with my embossing pad and heat embossed it using Martha Stewart’s Turquoise embossing glitter.

Here’s another look from a different angle…

 I am sitting here smiling because I finally managed to take a picture without my shadow in it! LOL!  I feel the need to apologize for my photography skills again… I really am trying to improve (although it’s very hard to tell) 😉

Now a close up of the Kittie inspired flowers….

 I hope my little card making obsession gives you inspiration, as always I welcome your comments!  They make my day 🙂

Happy Stamping!

Lisa 🙂
