I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

Keepin' It Simple Sunday - Special Edition

I say "special" because, well, it IS. I sent off a request to an artist that I've admired for some time now, e-mailed her some of the cards that I had made with her work, and asked her permission to share them with you.

I'm humbled, honored, and tickled pink that she kindly said YES! {Dork Dancing} So, without further fanfare, my cards for Keepin It Simple Sunday featuring the artwork of the EXTREMELY talented Leanne Ellis....{applause}



"Pursuit of Happiness"


"Sincerely" (close-up)

Card ingredients:
papers from My Mind's Eye, K&Co, Making Memories, & ProvoCraft
digital paper from Wench'd Grafix (punhed strip used in "Pursuit of Happiness")
punches from Martha Stewart & EK Success
Memento Inks in London Fog ("Sincerely" & "Pursuit of Happiness") and Tuxedo Black ("Gifted") from Tsukeniko
Ranger Distress Inks - walnut ("Time") and vintage photo ("Complicated")
Distress tool from Heidi Swapp ("Time")
paper doily ("Gifted")
COPIC markers used to accent the lovely sepia & black/white artwork

"Thinking of You" and "I miss you!" stamps from The Angel Company

I'd like to say a BIG thank you to Leanne for so generously allowing me to use her beautiful artwork. I really had a great time putting these pieces together & will be doing more in the future {wink}. I hope you all agree that Keepin' It Simple doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice beauty.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
