Stamp is from Blazing Poppy Vase. I colored the rubber with brush markers and filled in with chalk and pencils. The dies are Spellbinder and the border punch is Fiskars. Papers are from Berry Cafe.
My first attempt at layered stamping. The stamps, inks, and stitched die are from Ali Express. The lacy die is Spellbinders. The papers are Teresa Collins. My sewing machine was giving me fits so I tried a white pen by Ranger. Not a good purchase. That pen is going in the trash.
An attempt to use up the last of this paper collection by Teresa Collins. Definitely one of her prettiest! The stamped roses are PSX and I colored the image with Staedtler pencils. The dies are Spellbinders and the sentiment tag is from Pebbles.
A generic card for a variety of occasions. The flowers, leaves, and pearl flourishes are from Recollections and the papers are from Colorbok. My sewing machine was down for the count so I added defining borders with a black Micron pen. The yellow poppy card? I dunno. Crate Paper?
