About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

March Birthday Card

     Well, it's that time of the month for the Monthly Gigglers Birthday dinner with Sally and Sheila being the guest of honor.  I wasn't able to make it, but I meet up with them at our Monthly Stampin Up party hosted by Lou Ann (Crooked Stamper).  It is also the month of my mothers birthday.  So I made the same card, but with different sentiments. 
     I've been watching alot of Darlene Designs and have really learned alot.  Many of the elements and techniques on this card are hers. 
     I used Dusty Concord Distress Ink on a 5 3/8 X 4 1/8 using my blender.  I then inked a block script stamp with the same ink and stamped it once on scrap paper and then on my inked panel.  I stamped the flower in Rich Cocoa I used copics and SU markers to color.  Then I had to cut it out (Boohoo, no die for that-I'm sssssssooooooo spoiled)and used SU Crumb Cake around the edges that showed a bit of white.  The stem is a piece of SU cardstock with a little copic coloring for shadow.  The sentiment is from SU and stamped in the same Dusty Concord.  This card has "Wonderful Mother" and the Gigglers cards had Happy Birthday.  I used the Pop-dots raised up the sentiment and the flower, and then it was ready for my 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 base.
