In Case You Were Wondering...

...where I've been,  my younger son was creating a fantastic crafting space for me which is now finished.  I also just replaced my worn out printer/scanner. It's such a joy to have a place for everything and plenty of space to create!

The first two cards are Newborn Congratulations, the third uses Loreley Sands and Shells, a digital stamp by CS Designs, as is the sentiment, and the fourth is a birthday card for the creator of my crafting space.

The Peter Rabbit background was done with masking and sponging. The frames are SU Framelits Labels, popped up on SU Dimensionals. Peter is also attached with Dimensionals.

This is the first time I've used the babies from the SU set, Baby Firsts, but I've got to find an excuse for using them again--I love them! More babies were stamped on the background, using Versamark ink.
The background of the Loreley card was stamped with a PSX sailboat image and Versamark. The sea turtle is also PSX. My first stamps were from that company, which made such quality images. I treasure those I have!
Loreley will be entered in the Art With No Boundaries Bonus challenge, Rhythm of the Sea.

The sun in the birthday card background was made by sponging ink over a circle punched mask. The grass and sentiment are SU Inspired by Nature. I cased this card from Cat Spicer;

FAbulous cards and yes, I was wondering where you were. Peter Rabbit is adorable. Love the sponged and masked backgrounds. Those babies are hilarious. The expressions are just priceless. Loreley looks gorgeous on that watermark stamped background. Very effective. The sponging on the sun in the last card is so dramatic. It looks amazing with that stamp over it. Well done. Glad you're back.

You're putting your new space to great use. Love all your cards, but especially the Loreley card. Love the colors and the added sea turtle really makes it look under the sea. Thanks for entering Art With No Boundaries.

Kathleen, All are such lovely cards. I like how you colored Loreley, the bright colors add a look of dimension. It sounds wonderful to have a new room to play in. Hope that means you are going to be spending more time creating now. Thank you for sharing these little lovelies on Art With No Boundaries.
