One Layer Wednesday 25: Birds in the Trees

by Meghan Rowe on October 21, 2010, 4 comments

Even though I have already posted twice this evening, I couldn’t resist playing along with Styles Ink OLW 25. Here is my interpretation of the challenge (it only took me three tries to get the sentiment somewhat level, and sadly that was using stamp-a-ma-jig): Stamps: SU Of the EarthPaper: SU KraftInk: SU Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, […]

Oh How I Love Square Cards

As the title reads, I love making square cards – I love how they look, I love the balance, I love the size! These cards were made for a friend of mine who recently had a lovely little boy.

Just a Pretty Little Girly Card

A few nights ago when I should have been: a) working on my upcoming SU workshop, or b) in bed, I made this card: I love how this image looks cut out! Stamps: SU Elizabeth, Just Believe Paper: SU Regal Rose, Basic BlackInk: SU Regal Rose, Basic BlackAccessories: Buttons from my stash

In My Nest

I got the idea for tonight’s card from one of my daughter’s board books; ‘In My Nest’ by Sara Gillingham and Lorena Siminovich. It is as much a pleasure to read as it is to look at the artwork and use of color. This card is a little more detailed and time consuming than I […]

A Card Re-visited

by Meghan Rowe on October 10, 2010, 2 comments

Since posting this card, I have felt like something was missing. The control freak in me hoped for better results so I worked on version #2 today and I am much happier with the way the image and sentiment fill the white space. Stamps: SU Kindred Spirits, Wishing You, Fiskars Baby Clear StampsPaper: SU Whisper WhiteInk: SU Old Olive, Ruby Red, Basic […]

The Last Card

I have finished the last card for my sister’s Christmas ‘stamp a stack’. Its funny, I purchased this set thinking that I would do so much with it, but instead I struggled to come up with even one good design. Thank goodness for today’s FTL 111 sketch at CAS – it was perfect! On another note I just […]

One Layer Wednesday 23

In an effort to be more creative I am trying out Simplicity’s OLW challenge. I love Susan’s blog; her posts have given me the freedom to step away from making cards with too many layers and is a constant source of inspiration! The image is stamped in silver ink, though it does not translate well […]

I recently signed up to be a SU Demonstrator, and couldn’t be more excited; but with the new title also comes the pressure to produce a quality cards that other people might actually want to make. I am organizing a Christmas ‘stamp a stack’ for my sister and her friends; so last Saturday I set […]
