Ismaki Challenge #21

I missed Ismaki Challenge so much and today I managed to make a card based on the sketch from Claudia. I changed a bit the sketch and I hope it's OK:-))

I love Lizabeth biking stamp very much and can't resist to color her for making the card.I want to share with you about the black circle on my card, it was actually the ribbon's cover, you know the two circle that glued on top and bottom of the ribbon pack. I found it accidentally lying on my craft table when I unpack my new ribbon, so, what do you think about it? sure it looks like the old tape music, I quickly added it on my card, so we can always find art/embelishments around us :-) I also used old postcard
in this card and old saying too:-) I had fun making this card.

Supplies Used:

Stamp-High Hopes Rubberstamps -Lizabeth Biking Angel

Inks: Versafine Ink (Onxy Black), Distress Inks(Vintage Photo)

Patterned Paper: Stamp It, K & Co Company

Embelishments: Prima Flowers-flowers embelishments, Artful Collage Flowers, string, rhinstones,making memories brads,stickles from Ranger.

I need your help, please:-)

I love vintage/shabby/victorian stuff and am wonder where could I buy them online ? for example lace, ribbons, charms, etc....all for cardmaking, collage making. Thank you very much.

Thank God It's Friday ~ Paper Rests

I was a little bit late for the TGIF challenge:-( The challenge was Paper Rests, we need to use our left over papers to make something.Luckily I can make a card today with my Little Missy stamp from High Hopes Rubberstamps. I had so much fun making this card with some left over papers.

Firstly, Stamped the Little Missy stamp and colored with colored pencil. This time I don't use sansodor and paper stump, just color as a kid :-) After that,I stamped the "thanks" saying with clear ink pad then embossed with sparkle embossing powder on left over cardstock, then torn the edge and inked with distress ink.

Secondly,inked the "thanks"saying again on vellum in rectangle shape.Then, sponged Broken China distress ink on puzzle then inked the "thanks" saying again with metalic ink.Stick the "thanks" sticker on it.Put three rhinestones around it.

Gathered all the prima flowers , added with brad and put a little bit magenta stickles on the brad.

Stamped diamond shaped stamp on Fancy Pants Patterned Paper on the left side.Draw some stitches around the patterned paper, then added some thank you rub on on the bottom of right hand side.

Tied the ribbon on the patterned paper and arranged all the elements prepared on the patterned paper. I don't follow any sketch recently as I had fun play with all the details on the patterned paper. Lastly, added three spiral clips with magenta stickles on them.

Lot's of work but it really fun ! I hope you like it too.:-) Thanks for looking.
