Stargazer Lily

Hi everyone! I have been busy with the family, so please forgive my absence.

Today I have another shaped card. The base is Pink Passion, and was cut out with My Coluzzle Cutting System and the Circle template. The next layer (Basic Black) was also cut with my Coluzzle. The final white and Black circular layers were cut with my Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities & Big Shot. The Stargazer Lily stamp is from Starving Artistamps, and was stamped with Adirondack Pitch Black ink. I colored it with my Copic Sketch markers, and trimmed it out. I added sparkle to the lily with my Spica Clear glitter pen, then mounted it to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I decided to add a sentiment, and used my Sunspirit Studio Thank You sentiment with Whisper White Craft ink. The black dots were added along the perimeter of the base with my Micron Black pen and using my Paper Piercing template for spacing. The pretty sheer black ribbon is from A Muse.



Stamps: Stargazer (Starving Artistamps), Thanks (SunSpirit Studios)
Card Stock: Pink Passion, Basic Black, White
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Whisper White Craft, Copic Sketch markers, Clear Spica Glitter pen, Micron Pen (Black)
Accessories: Coluzzle Cutting System with Circle template, Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities & Big Shot, A Muse Sheer Black ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals & Glue Dots, Paper Piercing Template


This next beautiful card is a RAK from Alex. It's so pretty, and check out all of that stitching!! Wow...major patience there, Alex!! I love the colors and pretty papers, as well as those brads she built. Alex has a lot of beautiful "eye candy" at her blog, California Stampin' so you'll probably want to stop by. Thanks for the gorgeous card, Alex!!!

I am going on a field trip with my son and his class, so I won't be around for part of the day. I'm planning to catch up on some blurfing upon my return, and I look forward to seeing what you all are up to. Take care, and have a fabulous day!!
