Journey card


Today I have a quick card to show, that I made while at a crop this past weekend.  The colors are from Pals Paper Arts' challenge this week:

One of my favorite color combos!  I'll miss Bermuda Bay, but I'm so excited that Soft Suede is joining the Color Collections!

I figured out how to play around more with colors in my photos, so we'll see how that goes!  I don't know what it is, probably just the perfectionist in me.. but it bothers me when the colors aren't true to seeing it in real life.  This is as close as I could get it!  :)  Haha, I figure it's probably different on some of you all's screens, so this was probably for nothing.  Well, I just won't look at it on another computer to save my own sanity.  LOL

Anyway, so this card was created using one of my new stamp sets, Sentimental Journey.  I repeatedly stamped images from the set in VersaMark on the card base, and used the plane on my focal piece.  Lots of distressing going on here as well.

Journey card supplies:
Stamps:  Sentimental Journey
Ink:  Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin' Pads, VersaMark ink
Paper:  Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Whisper White cardstock
Accessories/Tools:  Linen Thread, Soft Suede 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Mini Library Clip, Cutter Kit, Stampin' Sponge


  1. Great style to this card! Love the smudging and the twine! Thanks for joining us at PPA!

  2. Very pretty! I like your distressing. I am sorry to see curry and bermuda retiring also, but am also happy Suede is staying around a while. :)

  3. I am always in love with every card you do, Melissa!!! Everyone becomes my favorite! LOL These colors look great on my computer, but I know what you mean. I start a LO at work and bring it up at home and go whoa!!! That's not right!!! LOL

    This is another great card. Love it!

  4. Very pretty card. I love Bermuda Bay. I even love the name of it. Bermuda Bay...just beckons to me. Wish I was there right now instead of sitting at my computer screen at work. Don't you wish you were there, too?


I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.. it makes my day!
