Bear Hugs

     Hello friends!  Looks like it's been awhile!  Today's card is Hugs from Concord and 9th.  I think it's a hoot!
Linda Carson
     The bear was colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers on water colored paper.  It's the first time I've used them.  I think I'm hooked.  I may need a different brand of paper though. 
     The hills are dies from MFT.  As you can see I ran them through an embossing folder.  I'm not sure who made the clouds.  The sky was airbrushed. 
      Thanks for stopping by!  Considered yourself hugged!!

I've Become My Mother

     Welcome!  I may have shown this image before but I can't locate it.  I may have forgotten to label it at the time.   
     It's such a hoot though and who doesn't need a smile these days!
Linda Carson, ARt Impressions
     This card has been my most requested to make!  I bet I've sold over 20 of these!  Just last month I had a request for 8!  It wasn't that bad.  I made other cards in-between.  I also had all the measurements written down and it went fast.
Linda Carson, Art Impressions
      You have to admit it's a great way to use up some scraps!  The image is Art Impressions.  Sentiment is my own.  I'm becoming more like my Mother day by day!!  Just ask my husband!!
     Enjoy your weekend!

Home Sweet Home

     Hi friends!  Today's card features not a bit of stamping.  It's all die cutting except for the brick stencil. 
Linda Carson, ODBD
     The majority of this well built home is thanks to Our Daily Bread Designs.  The exception is the black cat which is Memory Box and the grass die from Taylored Expressions.
     I sponged the brick stencil from MFT with Fire Brick Distressed ink.  Maybe next time I should add some textured paste.
     Thanks for visiting my make believe home.  Come back again soon....I'll leave the light on for you!!

A Friend Loves

     Welcome all!  If this card looks a bit familiar it's because I made one similar just two posts down.  I updated that photo by the way.  The card looks better.
     Moving on.  I really wanted to see what it would look like with a red/white color combo.
Linda Carson, ODBD


     This time I used every petal in the Pretty Posies die set for one main flower.  I think this makes the scroll work on the Majestic Medallion shine.  Once again I used the Stick It adhesive on the medallion die.  Great stuff!!
     The verse is from the Zinnia set.  Papers are Bazzill Basics.
     Sure do appreciate your visits and comments!  Until next time have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!

Hello Friend

     Hello!  I recently joined Instagram and I'm hooked!  It has opened up a world of beautiful cards, talented bloggers and new to me stamp companies. 
     Some of these companies I have heard of but never really noticed until Instagram.
Linda Carson, Concordand9th
       This card was made using the Flourish set by Concord and 9th.  I wish the photo did it justice because I used Brilliance ink.
      Concord and 9th made this set especially for the Mini Misti.  I love this new stamping tool.  It has already saved me time and messes!  Plus, I made three of these cards in no time.
     The hello die is from WPlus9.  I built up the die by cutting it out four times.  A few sequins finished it up.
     If you're on Instagram just search my name and join me.  I'll be happy to follow you too.
     Thanks for visiting!

Whispered Prayers

     Hello friends!  Today I'm playing with some new dies from Our Daily Bread  Designs.

Linda Carson, ODBD

       I love these sweet Pretty Posies dies because of their heart shape petal design.  The base of the card is the Majestic Medallion dies.  The center die is Flourishy Frame.
     Paper is also ODBD as well as the sentiment.
     I hope you like this "busy" design!  I think it works. 
     Have a wonderful day!

Proverbs 3:5

 
     Hi friends!  It's been awhile!  I'm such a horrible blogger but I do have good intentions!
 
Linda Carson, Memory Box, PTI
    I've been playing with Color Bursts again.  This time I used a couple of Memory Box dies and made one huge flower.  I really love the vivid colors.
     Ken Oliver makes Color Bursts as well as an adhesive product called Stick It.  It is made especially for those delicate dies.  I used it on the white outline die of the flower.  Easy to use and saves one from a sticky mess!  I highly recommend it!        
     Papertrey Ink restocked the Lord die and Lord mini stamp set so I jumped all over it!  I hope they come out with more scriptures to use with this die.  It's so pretty. 
     Thanks for visiting!  Please take a moment to leave a comment just to stay in touch.  It's been a long 6 weeks for me.  I needed this scripture!  Take care and hope to be back real soon!
