Southern Blends

These cards feature a stamp set in the new Occasions catalog that I think is easily overlooked. It’s on page 49; opposite of the Waterfront set, which is getting a lot of (rightly deserved) attention.  I bought the set knowing that I wanted to use the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers. I also popped on a few of the Glitter Epoxy Shapes. I thought the iridescence of them would help to highlight the Clear Wink of Stella shimmer that I added to the flowers. It’s so hard to get that shimmer to show up in the photo. You’ll just have to take my word for it. The yellow one is my favorite. Which is yours?

Perfect Plum Painted Harvest

I can’t get enough of this Painted Harvest stamp set! It is so beyond versatile and I really like using them as my own “Designer Series Paper” for backgrounds. Since the last card I made using this set was super bright, I thought I’d tone it down a little and focus on purples. So happy with this!

Jar of Flowers for Mother’s Day

It’s pretty obvious who this card was given to today. My mother is a wonderful woman that is always there for me. I love her tremendously! She bought me the Jar of Love bundle for Christmas last year, so I thought it would be fun to use it for her. Yellow, green and blue are her favorite colors and I threw a splash of pink in there for good measure. It was a little time consuming with all the die cutting, but she is totally worth it!

Delicate Birthday Blossoms

And today’s card is the second one I had my fun group of ladies at church make. This one features the Emboss Resist Technique.  It was more involved, which is why the entire class ended up being about 3 hours. Bless them for putting up with me for that long! I had them emboss the Delicate Details stamps in white and then use sponge daubers to add color. I also had them use the daubers to add a little bit of Peekaboo Peach to the Daffodil Delight flowers on the front. So bright and springy!
