Good News about Art Neko

Hi everyone!  I know I promised to share another sneak peek of card with brand new Art Neko stamps today, but guess what?  The Art Neko store is moving to a brand new website and it is offline for at least a few weeks while they get that all fixed up.  So please don't freak out if you try to go shopping there or check out the Art Neko blog and you get error messages.  We will be back with lots of great artwork and some fun giveaways with prizes!

I'll let you know when the store and blog are back up and running.  In the meantime, here's some of my past Art Neko artwork to feast your eyes on.  :-)

Vintage Skeleton Leaves - Thinking of You

Hi everyone!  Are you enjoying your weekend?  I'm popping in to share a bunch of brand new stamps from Art Neko.  See those skeleton leaves?  The sentiment?  The gorgeous frame?  Those are all brand new stamps, and they are here just in time for all our fall projects.  Aren't those leaves GORGEOUS??  I'm in love!!!

I started by stamping the leaves with a taupe ink onto white cardstock.  I cut these out and basically drooled over them for a few hours.  LOL  Honestly!  Then I pulled out some of the other brand new fall-themed stamps and formulated an idea to showcase the gorgeous leaves.  I stamped the ornate frame with the same taupe ink and cut that out.  The leaves were arranged on the side of the frame, and then I stamped the sentiment, cut it out, and placed it over the leaves inside the frame.  

I loved the taupe and white color combo, so I just added some taupe lace and placed the frame with the leaves and sentiment right over the lace.  I kept my background white so it would show off the gorgeous leaves.  Here are the links to the brand new stamps that I used:

There were so many ideas going around in my head for these leaves, and I have another card that I can't wait to show you.  Come on back on Wednesday and I'll share a totally different card using the same skeleton leaves.  Enjoy your weekend!!
