MDS Tuesday

Hello Peeps !!!

Happy Tuesday !!!

It has been a while since I did a scrapbook page using the MDS, so today I decided to do a page.
This picture I borrowed from my son's girlfriend- her niece Taylor who is  just absolutely precious.
I did a custom on the background and love the effect.  I used the Jumbo Outline alphabet and the Sweetness Unlimited stamp set. I added the daisies and the striped ribbon. Hope you like it.

Consider It Cased 87



Hello Peeps !!!

Happy Saturday !!!

Can you already tell one of my favorite stamp sets from the Occasions Mini?  I am really enjoying using this Bordering on Romance stamp set and I am not the only one. My inspiration came from Natasha's blog ( Inking Out of the Box) who used this set to make not one but three beautiful cards. I cased the third one with minor changes.  I added the circle frame down the bottom and instead of DSP, I just used the striped ribbon.
I also embellished with eyelets- still my all time fav accent.  I added the adorning accents EF and edgelit which make a cute border.  Hope you like it.
Thank you so much Natasha for this wonderful opportunity to cased you
Hop over to jean's blog ( Bear Hugs and Inky Paws) and see who she cased.

RECIPE:
Stamps:  Bordering on Romance
Paper:  Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Ink:  basic Black, markers
Accessories: striped Riding Hood ribbon, eyelets, dazzling details Cherry Cobbler
Tools:  Big Shot, Adorning Accents edgelit and EF
