The beans are spilled!


Hi all! I can finally spill the beans tonite, to let you know why I've been a slacker-blogger lately! I was asked to be on the Dirty Dozen design team at Splitcoaststampers, so I will be sharing my creations in the dirty dozen gallery for the next 6 months! For those of you unfamiliar with Splitcoast, they have a special hidden gallery that you can subscribe to, where you have access to new ROCKSTAR stampers every month! Hopefully everyone can be patient with me & the blog, as I'm freaking out a little bit, wondering how I'm going to handle a blog, the dirty dozen team, Crafty Secrets, a full-time job, and a BOWLING LEAGUE?! I'll git-r-done, it's just a bit overwhelming right now! The other new addition to the dirty girls team this month is Jessie Rone, whose incredible creations grace her blog HERE!
So on to tonite's cards. I was at Michaels last month and happened to catch my local store clearancing out a bunch of Anna Griffin stamps. I actually paid only $2.50 for this floral stamp that fills almost the entire front of the cards that I'm posting tonite! I stamped them off with Brilliance Black ink, heat set it, and then set about coloring the flowers my Copic markers, shading in the dark areas, like I did with the Flourishes Peony tutorial I did HERE.

The oval "thanks" was done with a Justrite Oval stamp (brayton font) on some striped green patterned paper scraps I had in my scrap bin.

We finally closed the cabin last weekend, so I'm looking forward to being home now and settling into fall and stamping season! Oh and one more thing; I wanted to tell everyone thank you for always supporting me and for leaving such kind comments for me. It is truly what keeps me going!

Congatulations on becoming a Dirty girl. You're a mighty talented and inspirational lady and the invitation is well deserved.

I've had this stamp for several years and it never occurred to me to colour it in such "strong" colours. Works a treat! Another super card.

Thanks
