Caring Flowers

Our Aunt had open heart surgery to replace/repair to faulty valves in her heart. Since I cannot be there in person to give her flowers... what better way to cheer her up than sending cheerful flowers that will never wilt!

I used the Falling Flowers stamp set with the coordinating May Flowers Framelits. I didn't have a "current" Get Well wish sentiment, so I used a retired stamp from the Kind and Caring Thoughts stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets - Falling Flowers, Kind and Caring Thoughts
Ink - Soft Suede
Paper - Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Peekaboo Peach, Very Vanilla
Accessories - Big Shot, May Flowers Framelits, Basic Pearls, dimensionals, glue dots

More Leaves

I'm loving the cooler weather along with the color of Fall leaves. For my Thanksgiving cards this year, I wanted it to keep it simple, so I paired the stamp sets "And Many More" with "Vintage Leaves". Perfect!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets - Vintage Leaves, And Many More
Ink - Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke
Paper - Early Espresso, Whisper White

Thoughtful Friend

My niece loves her little black kitty, so I thought I'd make a kitty card for her.... and her favorite color is blue, so I used Bermuda Bay with the matching polka dotted ribbon (retired).

I couldn't make a black kitty due to the fact the eyes and whiskers wouldn't show up on black ink, so I used Basic Gray instead. So it's a little gray kitty. LOL!

I used the heart within in the Foxy Friends stamp set on this card. I just inked up the middle size heart instead of the heart bubble that is within the set.

Thanks for taking a quick look!

Supplies Used
Stamp Sets - Foxy Friends, Thoughtful Banners
Ink - Basic Gray, Memento, Bermuda Bay
Paper - Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Accessories - Grosgrain Polka Dotted Ribbon (Bermuda Bay)

Swirly Year

I saw a cute card on Pinterest with the word "SMILE" in cut out letters on a card and thought what a cute idea.... I could do that for a Happy Birthday card. I think it turned out great! I added a few flowers around too to make it more feminine.

Now, I do have to say... the colors in the photo are off... it looks blue. The color is actually green -- the new In-Color - Emerald Envy. I'm sure any color would work well with this though. =)

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies Used
Stamp Sets - Number of Years, Swirly Bird
Ink - Emerald Envy
Paper - Whisper White (thick), Emerald Envy, Basic Black, Emerald Envy DSP
Accessories - Big Shot, Large Numbers Framelits, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Large Letters Framelits, glue dots, rhinestones

I saw a card very similar on Pinterest (but with different colors)... I wanted to keep mine masculine for my nephews birthday.  Not sure if you can see it or not, but I used the Party Punch Pack (balloon) to punch out the balloon and added a glue dot behind to make it pop up a bit!

Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies Used
Stamp Sets - Party Wishes
Ink - Memento, Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron
Paper - It's My Party DSP, Mint Macaron, Whisper White
Accessories - Party Punch Pack (Balloon)
