Inspiration Showcase Day One Card Sample

Good evening fellow bloggers.....I have not posted anything for over a month I know, but I was overwhelmed with last minute wedding details for my sons wedding.  The wedding was over last weekend and was a beautiful affair.   I  now officially have the most awesome daughter-in-law!   This is especially exciting for me as I never had any daughters of my own, only sisters either!  So....Another female has been long overdue.  WELCOME Becky to our family!!  I plan to post some pics of the invites and favors we did for the wedding later this month.

With the wedding over and my design team term with Skipping Stones Design completed in August also I was looking for a new project and found it!!  A wonderful on-line class from the fabulous Jennifer Maquire.  It is a technique class and I will hopefully have time to not only get the technique projects done, but also post some of the creations I try as I go. 
The first day was 5 different resist techniques.  This is the card I created using one of the resist tips:

I first stamped the text in black ink on while CS,  then the leaf background stamp over it in versamark ink, embossing it with clear embossing powder.  I then sponged the background in with distress inks and this is the magic that happened!  Fun! 

I am going to keep playing and hopefully will share a creation from Day 2 later this week.

Have a wonderful week!


  1. Beautiful job! Love the text background with the flowers.Gorgeous card. I only made a couple of cards, hoping to get time this weekend. Your puppy is adorable :)

  2. Wow Tammie, love this! I think I'm having withdrawals from the DT! So happy the wedding went well...I know the feeling, 3 sons-no daughters, 2 brothers-no grandchildren yet...maybe some day I'll get a granddaughter! Glad to see you back!

  3. Just dropped by to say that I love your card.
