Bermuda Bay, Baby

I stamped and colored this stamp before I knew what paper I was going to use.  I used SU! Watercolor pencils.  I then had a hard time figuring out what paper to pair with it.  I later realized the green watercolor pencil I used on her dress actually matches Bermuda Bay very nicely.  I inked the edge with Very Vanilla ink before mounting the cut out stamped image to the center.  This ribbon is BEAUTIFUL!  I picked it up at Joann's.  I think I'm in love....
This is another similar card to last week (another Go To Sketch).  I used Basic Grey papers for this one.  I added a sentiment from the Say it with Style set.  I loved the limeade colored buttons - I was so glad I got to use them.  
OK, another Go to Sketch (aren't they fabulous?).  This time I was actually inspired by the shoes of a little girl at church.  (Seeing card design ideas everywhere, that's when you KNOW you have a problem.)  Her shoes were a dark gray and had spots in these colors stitched on them.  Very cute.  Anywho, I actually had another idea with stitching and paper tearing which I'll try later, but for now, I came up with this.


  1. That top one is so fun! how do you ink the edge? Do you just use a stamp pad?

  2. Robin, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the flower card! Smashing darlin' and the circle card - fabulous. Love your recent posts.

  3. Oh so beautiful....... I really love the 2nd card with all the flowers.
