Pen & Ink Monograms



I spent Saturday creating some art, rather than the usual card making frenzy.  I love creating pen and ink monograms and rather than using only black and white I opted to dig out my Zig Memory Writers and my Prisma Color Pencils.

Scrap Stash Busting - Shades of Grey Hello Cards




I keep a basket on my desk to corral all my little bits and yesterday morning I decided to make some cards from the bits in the basket.  These three cards are the result.  The scraps are the patterned bits on each card, the trimming of these cards.  When I used Distress Inks I can't bring myself to toss the little stips and bits.  I just love the colors they create and I have to use all the little pieces.

Casing Pinterest - Hello Lovely

This week's Casing Pinterest features the lovely Jennifer McGuire.  I just love this card from her blog, but vellum and I aren't compatible.


I struggle with adhering vellum to the card, and to be quite honest I tired, but yet again I failed.  I really did try and it was a disaster, so I tore the vellum off and used card stock.  In the end, I love how it turned out.
