It's Not All Black and White

Grow With Love

Can you believe I actually have something for you on a Saturday? For once, I have a few extra cards at the end of the week. I hope you like it!
I used this week's Lizzie Anne sketch by Kendra, though I forgot to add in the twist of adding some gems to your card. (oops) I stamped the July release single, Grow with Love, using Memento ink on Papertrey white card stock and die cut with the Spellbinder's Labels 4 dies, including a mat for layering.

Money saving tip: Just buy white thread (and maybe brown and black). Then, before sewing, color a length with a Copic marker to match any project. It only takes a few seconds. I leave my machine threaded. Pull the thread out past the needle, and color. Then re-wind the spool. That way you don't have to go through the whole up, down, loop, over, in, etc. threading process.

You can now find all of the new Lizzie Anne stamps available for sale, here, on their new release page.

So far, my plans are pretty low key for the next couple of days. I hope you have a great weekend.

What's In It?
Stamps: Grow with Love (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: pink pirouette, soft sky (SU), white (pti), lily pad (Bazzill), pretty please: flower drops (my mind's eye)
Ink: tuxedo black (memento)
Copics: B00, R43, R24, YR04, YG91, BG93
Other: labels 4 nesties (Spellbinders), ribbon (american crafts), SEI brad, thread, sewing machine
ETA: I just found out that Lizzie Anne is having their Spellbinder's dies 40%!!! Holy freakin' deal. I'll let you know if I get any more details. Get them before they're gone. I know I'm going shopping.

Dear Bethany, I occasionally landed on your blog and like what I see here. You do wonderful artwork! And so I will make a visit again on your place from time to time to see what's new.
Love from Switzerland,

This is just the cheery kind of card I love. I don't make enough of them 'cuz, you know, I'm always doing all that flowery stuff. This is really sweet and charming, Bethany. Good tip about the stitching. I haven't tried my Copics on anything but cardstock yet.
