A Party without Cake..

Hello friends!!  Rosemary here today and I have a fun little card that I made using the super cute AJVD stamp set, Celebrate Cake.  This set has so many fun sentiments that can be used alone or stacked on top of the cute little cake plate.   For this card I used the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches so I will be posting there, as well.

I started by looking through a pad of Teresa Collins papers (from the Family Stories pad) that I had not yet put away and found this cute piece in a red/aqua color combo.  I cut the paper to fit my card based and adhered it.  White cardstock was cut, two corners rounded and the sentiment and cake plate stamped in aqua and red inks.  A strip of patterned paper was trimmed and adhered.  I added some scarlet satin AJVD sequins and then added some clear Wink of Stella to the word cake for a bit of sparkle.  Here is a close up so you can see the sparkle:

A Springy Hello Card

Spring is here ~ however, the weather doesn't feel it . . . been in the low 20's so it sure doesn't feel like Spring.
Don't you just love these soft colors of this card?
I used the Tag as the focal point, it was die cut from the new
Ken Oliver Crafts Watercolor paper.  I am loving his papers! Nice weight and one side is a bold design and the other is a subtle, washed out color of the bold side.  So versatile to use!
The Balloons were distressed with Broken China and Mustard Seed on the respective colored papers, which gave them some variations rather than just solid colored card stock.
Tied them withe Divine Twine and popped them out with the 3D Foam Squares!

An Easter Card

Hello friends!!  Rosemary here today sharing a little card I made.  Easter is right around the corner and the A Jillian Vance Design Simply Said:  He is Risen set is perfect for creating beautiful Easter cards.  

I started my card by water coloring a piece of water color paper with two different Ranger Distress inks:  Broken China and Faded Jeans.  After the panel had dried I trimmed it down and stamped the main sentiment from He is Risen using Memento London Fog ink.  I added some little banners cut from polka dot embossed vellum, a bit of off-white twine and then mounted the piece on light grey cardstock.  I really love the soft look that the water colored background provides for the beautiful sentiment.

Daisy Notes

 Hi, Lisa Lara here today, sharing these easy
CAS daisy notecards.
 These notes are 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 so they will fit in an A2 envelope with regular postage.
I used the stitched circle die from Sam E. Snowman Shaker Die  Set to emboss it in the center  of the front of the card.
 Next I made a mask by cutting a 4 1/4 square piece of copy paper and cutting the circle from the center.
 I put a tad of removable tape to hold mask in place and stamped the daisy using my set I illustrated Picking Daisies.  I stamped on a foam mat to help stamp over the copy paper mask for even coverage.
 After I colored my daisy I sponged a light grass and sky.
 I removed the mask then stamped the sentiment using the same stamp set.
 I used 110# paper, and you can see the ink went through a bit.
So I made a liner using copy paper that gave me a 1/8" border for the inside of the card.
Voila! These are easy to whip up, so I made a set!
