Hi all! You are in for a real treat today! We've got some beautiful cards from special guest, Barb Engler!
Barb is an incredible stamper with a knack for adding details to her cards. She's also a master at using color. You can find her handmade cards on her blog, as well on her Instagram account. Her body of work is fantastic! By the way, she's also the host of the Simon Says Stamp! Flickr challenge and is just a very kind, big-hearted crafter! We are so happy to share some of her work with you today!
This first card from Barb is sure a stunner.
The Coreopsis flowers looks beautiful in purple! Such a great color choice for them! And check out how she gave the flowers some extra dimension by adding a little bit of detail with a white gel pen. Absolute perfection!
Her card also has some beautiful movement going on with the addition of the three stamped bees (also from the Coreopsis stamp set) and the strategic placement of the five sequins. Awesome!
If you liked that card, you are going to love this second one!
Talk about a beautiful job coloring! Barb once again used a white gel pen to give the flowers (from the Hi Bouquet stamp set) a little extra pop. LOVE that. Anyone else anxious to give that a try on their next handmade card?
Another fun idea from Barb is she made her own background paper for this card! She took a gray piece of cardstock and then stamped one of the individual flowers from the Hi Bouquet stamp set all over it. That's a great idea!
Let's give Barb a big hand!
Be sure to tune in tomorrow! We have one more beautiful card by Barb to share with you! I think you will find it to be a real hoot! Wait. I said too much! Wink! See you Tuesday!
