I made this card for a contest. It had to be crackled or cracked so I did both! The images are from Innovative Stamp Creations....the butterfly and flower are from the Friendship set and the trees and sentiment are from the Marvels of Nature set. They have such a different variety, I love their stamps! This is my first attempt at the cracked glass....
I have been wanting this stamp set for so long and I finally got it! Now I am happy......well at least at this very moment, then I will want something else...lol.
Anyway, I was jsut messing with my stamps and did the images. I ended up just throwing these cards together and I love them...especially the one that looks like it all foggy.

This one is probably my favorite brayered card that I have done (with the exception of what I did in class with Michelle). I love the way the colors blended and the simplicity of it. Needed something on the top and didn't want a sentiment to I put a simple knotted bow to take up some space.
Still working that brayer! I liked this card until I put the brads in the corner. Too many, too close and I think it ruined the card, but I will give it away or something so I don't have to look at it....I might try taking 2 out and movin them and just putting a couple more holes in the edge....it would look like I meant to have those holes there then....lol.
OK!!!!! I updated the card and the pic but left the old one in so you could see the before and after on them. I like it better....still not my favorite card, but better than it was. The photo corners helped but would have probably been better with nothing or just a single brad....next time!!!
I saw this tutorial on how to use a punch to make this medallion. Can't remember exactly where it came from this minute but I will find it and post the link here.
Anyway, I think this is one of my favorite cards that I have made to date. It just all fell together for me...I love when that happens!
The stamp sets are Bella's Rose and Heard from the Heart from Stampin' Up! and it is all Stampin' Up! products and inks.
OK...found the tutorial....It was done by Becca (that is what I was thinking earlier but wanted to be sure before I posted that). Anyway, here is the link to the tutorial...
I went to a Michelle Zindorf workshop today in Dayton, Ohio. She is remarkable! I loved it...we made 3 full cards and the image to a fourth since we had some extra time. I matted and finished it when I got home (the first one posted). I hope you all like them, I was really happy with the way they all turned out.
If you ever get a chance to go to one of her workshops, GO!!
