...My most favorite stamps lately have been Magnolia Stamps and I have truly fallen in LOVE with some of the newest images, yet I still enjoy using some of the older images too. This card is a card I created using a "Masking" technique. It will be submitted to Magnolia Down Under for "Challenge 42 Masking"today.
I have also submitted this card for the "Create A Scene" challenge over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers. I created a mask of the "Fence" and the "Butterfly Floral" images in the background, behind the lovely Miss Tilda. It was a fun card to make and I hope to try more, using the Masking Method.
If you have never tried masking, you can find a fun tutorial by Stephanie Barnard, over on You Tube - simply Click Here !! Another good one you can find HERE, by Jennifer McGuire, one of my favorite stampers!!
Hope you try it and HAVE FUN!!!
And on a very personal note, I want to say how much I wish my infant daughter "Kristyn Alyssa", was here with me today. On this day she would have turned 19. April 19th, will always be a very bittersweet day to me. The day I lost my only daughter...one of the greatest heart aches of my life. She will always be in my heart and my 'forever" infant daughter in heaven. My Baby Girl Angel!
A Little About Me
- Northeastern, Massachusetts, United States
- Purple is my favorite color and ironically - Purple is the Awareness Ribbon color for Fibromyalgia, an illness I personally live with. I had to stop working in 2006 due to Fibro and Degenerative Disc Disease. It's been a tough road at times, but I have a wonderful family and fantastic friends. I am a Mom to two awesome sons (Ages 21 and 26) and a wife and friend to a wonderful Hubby. We live in a tiny coastal community in Massachusetts and have lived here all my life. My hubby and my boys are my whole world and mean every thing to me! I cherish all three of my guys!! I am very lucky to be blessed with wonderful friends. I adore and cherish each of my friends as much as my family! I am an avid card-maker and love all types and stamping, and also love coloring with my Copics. I'm very lucky to have this whole new world on online friends that I've met through my Craft Groups. HUGS TO YOU ALL!!
