MIM #106

Melissa Phillips takes the reins for Papertrey's MIM with Two Toned Stamped Flowers.
I'm the biggest fan of Melissa. Her picture is next to 'talent' in my book!
Her tutorial had us use 2 stamps to ink a flower.
Well I tried 2 of every color I had and settled with Summer Sunrise and Limeaid Ice.
Really thinking Spring. It's been in the 70's around here!
My heart is with those who are still, shall we say, enjoying a long winter?
Wanted to do cards for ladies in my Bible Study who have memorized  Psalm 121.
"I lift up my eyes to the hills- where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth."
Closeup will show that the center panel is diagonally stamped with the leaf border from My Mother My Friend in Smokey Shadow. The flowers are Mini Blooms with the triple dots stamped 3 times in Harvest Gold.
Then, like Melissa's, put in an embossing folder and run through the cuddlebug.
I love using vellum Photo Finishers. That got the sentiment, embossed with a die cut Framed Out #3.
The congrats is from Framed Out #7.
Dawn's Cutting Garden will not be put away for awhile, I'm so in love with it!
It got the 2-toned treatment, but then stamped again and spritzed with water. Kinda intensified the colors. That front leaf is ghost stamped. Am I a happy student of tutorials?
Honestly don't know a better way to spend Monday Mornings!
 
Limeaid Ice pattern pack paper behind the panel.
Beth Moore's series on the Psalms of the Ascents is our Bible Study.
She a gifted women's Bible teacher. If you've never taken one of her studies, she comes highly recommended by me!
Just beginning to decorate the house for Easter (early this year, it seems). Planning on the kids and a large group for the holiday. It doesn't get any better than that!

  1. This is gorgeous Nancy. The limeade ice stripe in the background is perfect. I'm in the midst of Beth Moore's Daniel study. It is excellent.
