Happy Wedensday








I know that it has been awhile, sorry , but I was away visiting my beautiful daughter in Windsor . We had a great visit even though the weather was soooo hot and sticky, thank goodness for air conditioning . I will try to post every few days. I hope that the pictures I posted come out cause when I previewed them they were huge. I told you that I wasn't that great with this computer thing..






I would love to hear from you, please leave a comment or email me privately nmanel@rogers.com









I thought that I would share a masculine card with you as it is Father's Day this weekend. All stamps from http://www.stampingbella.com/



I made this card awhile back and just love the splooch under the golf bag and the scalloped circles for the background are so much fun and so easy to align.






The second card is the daisy within daisy . I chalked the background and stamped the daisy with black permanent ink (Memories), I really like the soft subtle colours and I am not sure if you can see the glitter, but there is lots of glitter in the center of the daisy and around the sentiment.






As you can tell by now I love square cards. This card is actually Bazzill Dahlia (purple) but I don't know if the colour shows as the true colour or blue . I used mineral spirits and Lyra coloured pencils to colour the vase and flower .






I hope that you all explore all of the fabulous background stamps that are in the Stamping Bella line. I use them all of the time in my classes and everyone loves them.









Card stock - Prism , Bazzill






Hope you enjoy



Hugs

Love the cards Nicky! I really like the golf clubs one with the brass brads or bobbles on the tags. Really gives it that masculine touch.

The vase and flowers are also lovely and the colours are perfect.

Can't wait to see what we'll be doing next week!!
