flower thank you


Using this fun stamp set, I stamped out the leaves and the flower on whip cream cardstock then cut them out with our fantastic detail fine point scissors. The thank you stamp was stamped prior to mounting the die cut card with the foam dots. I layed the card panel over the folded card and stamped. YES! It was that simple. Added the simple flower in the corner really made this card pop.

Thanks for looking and I hope you are inspired to make something yourself this week.

pink birthday sparkle card


This is one of my favorite sets, it is so veritile and that cute label stamp is so fun! I used the tecnique of second generation stamping, for the lighter colors directly over the leaves. I cuto out the other flowers and popped them up with foam squares. I have to admit, I did that because I was too lazy to do any masking. The sponge effect really pulled those sequins into the center point of the card.

Hope you enjoy the card and are imspired to make your own card this week.

embossed white butterfly


This is such a fun technique, I stamped the image in our pigment whip cream ink and embossed with clear powder. Used our wonderful matching dies to cut out the butterfly. Added the strip of the pattern ribbon really made this pop off the page.

Hope you enjoy this quick and simple card and it inspires you to make something.

green thank you


This is one of my go too cards when I am in a hurry for a thank you. It would work well for any sentiment in theory. The thank you stamp is popped up on foam squares and the heart has journey glaze and glitter added to it for an extra special fancy effect.

Paris in the distance


A bit of my shabby chic side came out when making this card. I used the second generation inked stamp for the dress form and offset the postage stamps to not be squared on the card. I then cut a circle in the card to allow the Eiffel Tower image to show through, which was stamped on the base of the card. Finishing if off with a bit of sponging with the oatmeal cookie ink pad.

Crown Attitude


I loved how the stamp of the month image fit perfectly with the crowns. I used the journey glaze mixed with glitter on a few of the jewels of the crown and enjoyed the layering to finish the look of this card.
