I have been playing with my black and white cards for a swap. I tried the Split Negative technique but I think I like the traditional stamped image better. I used Whisper White and Basic Black card stock and added a splash of color with the Real Red Satin Ribbon. The motorcycle stamp is in the Summer Mini. My sketch is last week's Stamping 411. Maybe this week I will actually get my card done early enough to post on their blog.

Jaxen's Gems magnetic board

I made this magnetic board for my daughter-in-law for her birthday. I used jersey shore dsp with Wild Wasabi cs. I cut the letters and sesame street characters out with my cricut. I miss stamping this week but I love being with my son, his wife and grandbaby. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Awash with Flowers - Lynne

For this card I stamped on vellum card stock with with craft ink. I then embossed with black embossing powder. I flipped the vellum over and used my markers and blending pen to color the flowers. I fell in love with a card Gretch Barron did using this technique so I had to give it a shot.

Earth Elements Swap

The last swap I did our challenge was to use Sahara Sand cs and one color from the Earth Elements family. These are samples that I received in return.

Patriotic Swap

I love participating in swaps so I joined a Patriotic swap and this is what I came up with. I used Sahara Sand, Real Red and Night of Navy cardstock. I used white craft ink with the stamp set Courage and the wheel Hero. A little star with a brass brad finishes it off. I have not received my swap cards yet but am very excited to see what everyone else did.

Easter Page CASE

This page idea I CASEd from France Martin. I fell in love with her bunny so I changed up the colors just a bit to make it my own. Hope you enjoy!
