I'm Back!

Hi there and welcome back!
Yes, I know it's been a while since my last post but what can I say? Life gets CRAZY sometimes! LOL I've been busy though and have a few creations I'd like to share with you today.
The first two are altered journals I made for two friends from church. They saw my journal (you can see it in this post), and asked if I was able to make more for them. I actually made three but the third one was beautifully wrapped before I realised that I never took a picture of it!
The butterfly image on the left is from the Gina K. Whimsical Spring stamp set and the flower image on the right is also from Gina K. but the True Love stamp set. These journals are really good for using up all those little scraps of DP you don't want to get rid of.

The next item is a card I made for our pastor and his wife, who have gone to the US for a month. We wanted to wish them safe travels and I chose the bunny stamp from The Cat's Pajamas.

I stamped the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed it using black embossing powder. I tried stamping in black and using clear embossing powder but found that the black ink dried too fast for the embossing powder to stick properly. I coloured the bunny's nose and the inside of his goggles, but wanted to leave the rest black and white.

The last two items are get well cards for two ladies at church who have had surgery. I really like that flower image from the Gina K. True Love stamp set! I think it's the clean lines and you can literally colour it any which way you like and it always comes out beautifully! I started the black, white and yellow card for last week's Mix it up Monday challenge over on StampTV but didn't get around to finishing it in time to enter. I love combining one other colour with black and white and paired it with pink in the second card.
Well, thanks for looking! Don't forget to hop over to StampTV as Gina and the lovely DT ladies are unveiling their latest release today! 
See you soon!
PS: I haven't put any deets in this post but if you'd like to know anything about any of the products I used, please leave a comment and I will get back to you ASAP! :)
