More Crafty Secret Fun

This is one of the Crafty Secrets Cotton Scraps that my friend Jan shared with me.  I entered this into the Crafty Secrets Sketch challenge over at Split Coast Stampers.  I really had fun making this card, I had an opportunity to use a lot of my new products and use up some of my old stash.  I am really getting hooked on Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Ink's, this one is Scattered Straw they are really easy to work with.    I used Anna Griffins The Wedding Studio print it yourself programs. I found them on clearance, the lovely flourish was already printed on 2 sides, I saw lots of possibility's.  I also added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Wheatfields.  It gave me the exact shade in the Crafty Secrets Cotton Scrap.  I found a local craft store that sells card stock by the pound and it is really nice and heavy, and I love that shade of red.  I embossed with Stampin Up Big Shot Texturz Plate Perfect Details another of my new favorites.  I also used Stampin Up Big Shot Texturz Plate Backgrounds #1.  I have had the ribbon forever, it is actually bright white but the Ranger ink took care of that. I love the button I used, it's vintage and the tiny plastic faux pearls are naturally yellowed.  Thanks for looking, ~Diane


  1. So, so pretty! Wonderful card, Diane. You always seem to find the best vintage images.


  2. Very pretty card Diane! That ribbon adds such a nice touch :) TFS

  3. This is so pretty, Diane! I love the paper, the image, and that ribbon! I like your double layered flower too. And then I noticed the embossing on the red layer. You always know just how to make your cards say WOW, and it really shows that you put your heart into your art!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a sweet comment, they really make my day!
