Petal Party

This card is a little different.  The paper was cut 4 x 11 and scored at the 5.5 fold line.  The flower was stamped and then cut by hand so that it lifts up.  The sentiment was stamped below on what is the inside of the card.  This was mounted on a light green that was cut to an A2 size.  The stamp is Penny Black "Petal Party" and was stamped with memento Love Letter and Bamboo Leaves.  Distress markers Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters were used on the center.  A light green button was then placed in the center.  The idea for this card came from the Online Card class that I have been taking.

tutu sweet

This card is for a very special little granddaughter that is turning 4.  Her favorite color is purple, hence the color selection for this card.  The stamp is from Penny Black "tutu sweet" and it really is.  Copic markers were used to color the image -BV00, BV01, BV0000,  BV08, E00, E35, Y21, R20.  Stickles was used on the tutu and the heart.  A Spellbinders oval was cut in the Little Darlings paper.  Since the paper is flowers with green leaves the oval background is another Little Darlings.  The stamped image was fussy cut and popped on the card to give the effect she is dancing.  Hero Hue gems make a frame as if a picture and stars cut from the same Bazzill as the card base are from Memory Box. The Happy Birthday is from a Paper Smooches set.   I had fun making this card.  Hope you enjoy.

Warm Heart

I found the inspiration for this card n the internet.  It is a little fussy to make, but I enjoyed the final product.  With the heat of summer this past week, something a little wintery seems good.  This was another card from my summer Christmas card class.  It is an A2 card.  Paper Smooches "Warm Heart" is the stamp set used.  Spellbinder Tags and Pagemap borders are the dies used.  Memento ink and copic markers G24, R59 and E25 along with some twine, paper of your choice (scraps for the trees) and some Antique Linen Distress Ink gives you a final card.  Hope you enjoy

Happy Anniversary

A simple card using Hero Arts Tall flowers, Copic Markers and a sentiment of your choice.  The flowers were stamped twice with masking paper used to prevent the full stem from stamping on the card stock.  Add a little stickles on some of the flowers for some bling.  Hope you enjoy.

Another Christmas in July card

Another of my Christmas summer workshop cards.  I was looking for ideas and found a card similar to this and used it for my inspiration on the internet.  The snow was created using 1 1/2 inch score tape and Rock candy glitter.  If you have not tried that technique put your tape on cardstock.  Peel the cover paper off to expose the sticky and spread the glitter and press it in.  Remove the excess glitter and cut to the shape you want.  Stickles was added as a glitter effect to the trees.  This is an A2 card.  Hope you enjoy


Paper:  Echo Park 'winter wishes'
Score tape
Dies:  Memory Box deer and trees
sentiment of your choice
