Where does time go?

It seems like just a week or two ago I mentioned I was working on a new type of card (at least a new one for me).  It was actually over a month & half ago that I mentioned the new type of card.  Where does time go?

My first ever easel card was inspired by Tim Holtz' cards he created for the Hero Arts Blog Hop back in December 2009!   I created the background using the "smoosh" method (distress ink on the craft mat misted with water).   I used Hero Arts' "Dandelion Frame" with water misted distress ink.  Not sure who made the "happy birthday" stamps, no labels.  The metal butterfly is inked with alcohol ink. . . it was on clearance and intended for stepping stones and is  from JoAnn's, (the label is gone).

The second card was created using Hanko Designs quilting pattern, papers and charms!  The card base is core'dination paper.  It was really a fun card to make.  I love the quilting!   The sentiment stamp is Hero Arts' "Birthday and Always".

What new technique or style have you tried lately?

Have fun and play!


  1. Gorgeous cards, Linda. Love the colors on the first, isn't that dandelion stamp awesome? The quilted look on the second is just gorgeous. Love it.

  2. I love these cards. I want to learn that quilting & constructing too. I'm going to stop calling you Linda & just call you Teacher!

  3. Wow, I loved both of these cards! I've enjoyed browsing your blog this morning, it's fantastic.
