Blooms Banners and Blends

I am sharing this with Hunter’s permission.  She put together this pretty card that uses the Birthday Blooms flower. She used Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to color it in and it is gorgeous! She used sentiments and the leaf sprig from the Banners for You set, which I am not sure I would’ve even thought to pair with the flower, but they look like they could’ve come from the same set. She added quiet dimension by gluing the flower panel down flat, then the strip above is popped up on one layer of Dimensionals and the right side panel is popped up on two layers. I tried to capture a little of the shadow…can you tell? It’s a beautiful card with rich, vibrant colors and perfect for spring. Thank you, Hunter!

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!

Dragonfly Thoughts

Here’s an encore using the Dragonfly Dreams bundle and some lovely accessories.  This is a “Thinking of You” card that I’m sending to a long-distance friend. I hope it puts a smile on her face!

I die cut the intricate dragonfly die in blushing bride. Layered behind it is the dragonfly’s wings that are stamped in Sahara Sand. Then I used the “Rock n Roll” technique to roll the bottom of the stamp along the Soft Sky ink pad. Makes for a lovely, muted background behind the intricate one.

Hunter Thinks I’m Sweet!

This year for my Birthday, sweet Hunter Danette

Hunter

made me a set of 13 cards. I wanted to showcase this one today because it uses what would typically be considered a Valentine’s stamp set.  We show our love 364 other days of the year, too, so why keep this cute set confined to just one day?  Nice job, Hunter!
