More from Pagemaps!

This quarter there's tons of fun going on over at Pagemaps.com! There's a whole new batch of creative inspiration for card makers! I was lucky enough to make a sample for this latest round of quarterly card maps! You can click HERE to see September's Cardmaps! Want a peek at the sketch I did?

Here goes.....


And, here's one of the cards I came up with!

This card was easy peasy! All of the stamps are from Impression Obsession. Paper is K and Company and My Mind's Eye. The ivory paper is Flourishes Classic Ivory. I used Tombow markers in two shades of red and two shades of green to color up my flowers (Impression Obsession Peony), huff and stamp! Stamp the sentiment (Fragrance by Impression Obsession)and sponge around the circle with some Antique Linen Distress Ink. That's pretty much it! The punched border is the Apron Lace border from Fiskars. I also did something fun -- I punched the border on a piece of green cardstock and then cut it into strips and used those strips to edge my circle and create a scalloped border. I thought this was fun to do! Add a silk ribbon bow (created thanks to the Bow Easy!) and... you're done with a quick and easy card for any occassion!

Hope your week is going well! I'll see you back here tomorrow for another IO challenge! So... stay tuned!
