Get Well Wishes

How fun is this Fringe Flower!  Since we got it in, I use it A LOT!!! You can do so much layering and make them as full as you want. Leave it flat or use a pen to curl the petals like I did on this one.

It is another great new floral die from A Jillian Vance Design! So many good ones this Spring!!
Along with the new Vase Die which was a request from several customers at one of our shows, I cut it out using Silver Mirracard card stock which adds so much elegance!!
The Sentimental Script Background Builder Stamp is the perfect backdrop to this silver Vase and fun Fringe Flower!
Certainly a cheery Get Well Card with the sentiment from Get Well Wishes Stamp Set!

a mother's day rose...

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Hope your week is going well.  I have another Mother's day card to share with you.  This one was created with the Beautiful Rose die as well as the Art Deco Backdrop die set. 
This card actually started out as something different.  I wasn't super crazy about the direction I was going in so I set everything aside and worked on a few other things.  The other day I came back to it and decided to scrap the first idea.  I kept the rose that I had created using patterned papers from a Teresa Collins pad.  I had a couple of papers from that pad that coordinated with the rose and I used one to die cut the Art Deco frame.  A second frame was die cut and the two were adhered together to give the frame a bit more heft.  The woodgrain piece was die cut using one of the inner dies that comes in the set.  After adhering the frame to the card base I added the woodgrain panel and rose using pop dots.  That was going to be the end of it, but then I decided to create a panel for the inside of the card.  You can see in the photo that I hadn't adhered it inside, but it is there now!  I stamped the sentiment and flowers from the Mother's Day stamp set in VersaFine Smoky Gray.  Then I colored the little flowers using two shades of pink Prisma pencils and a mint green Prisma pencil.  Going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

Be Still...Watercolored Pansies!

Aren't these the sweetest Pansies? I love the new Pansy Die Set by A Jillian Vance Design!
It features 3 different sizes of blooms to be layered!  Doesn't it look great with that Mini Bow?  Some cards you finish and just LOVE and this is one of them!  Hello, Bunny here today.

I started out with watercolor paper and Distress inks in Wilted Violet and Mowed Lawn.  Then I picked the areas I like to cut into the petals, bow, stem and leaves.  Easy Peasy using a Tim Holtz watercolor brush!
And my favorite bible verse from Get Well Wishes Stamp Set just completes this card!

Celebrate Spring!

Hello, Lisa here with a card that celebrates spring! All the trees are greening up nicely around here and it is beautiful to see. It's also Arbor Day next Friday so I thought this card was appropriate:

 I hand cut some foliage pieces to cover the Towering Tree die cut. They were colored with various inks and sprays. I used the Tim Holtz Rays stencil for the background. That is one shiny tree lol! I misted coffee filters and cut the grass out of them with the Stitched Fringe die. Coffee filters look like tissue but they are much stronger and you can color them anything you like. Some machine stitching around the edge added more interest and texture.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a creative week. ;-)

I'm stuck on you

Hey y'all! Shelly, here!
Happy Friday!!

Today, I'm sharing a fun and cute little card with you! Playing around with the new Cute Cactus die and Succa For You stamp set, this is what I came up with...

See?!...Cute, yeah?!...I thought I'd have some fun with my cactus die and decided to trim off the one cactus arm on the left side. After, I used a little bit of ink to add some more color to my cactus and then to make it even cuter, I added some little googly eyes. One done, I added my little flower with a jewel drop in the center of it to my cactus.

To finish my card off, I added some striped patterned paper for my background. Then added my sentiment to a strip of white cardstock, which I let hang over both edges of the card by just a little bit. Fun and cute, yeah?!...
