you've got this...sss#279

hi tracey, momma, friends old and new!

found some time to stamp with tracey the other day...well, we did more talking than stamping and it was fun!  i was showing her how beautiful using aqua painters and alcohol with reinkers work together.  when i was left with a lovely flower, i truly wasn't sure how to use it on a card...until i saw this...

the sweet sunday sketch challenge was so perfect for my flower, i quickly put it on a 5x5 card, and voila!

you really must check out their design team creations for inspiration!  i particularly love vicki burdick's beauty from  she does such amazing work!

stamps:  you've got this, birthday blossoms
ink:  momento black, rich razzleberry, old olive
paper:  black, white, rich razzleberry, brights dsp
extras:  paper piercing tool, crushed curry stampin write marker, black permanent marker, vanilla seem binding ribbon, antique brads, aqua painters, alcohol, glue dots, dimensionals

i've also taken a bit of time to tangle.  i wanted to combine stampin and tangling and decided to use the same flower.  here is what i created...

not bad for being self-taught!  not nearly as amazing as others...but not bad!  

the romantic poet, william wordsworth, once wrote, "fill your paper with the breathings of your heart."  i believe i do that.  every.  single.  time.  i.  create.  

whether you write, stamp, zentangle, draw, type, text...whatever...i hope you do it with all your heart.

thank you for stopping by,
i appreciate you.

until next time,
peace be with you


  1. Very pretty card, good colors. Wow the second one must be time consuming but worth it. Is this a technique?

    1. thank you so much, gisela! the second flower was stamped and then filled in with tangles from an art form called Zentangle...purposeful patterns...very relaxing!! thank you for stopping by!
