Cards cards cards

A few cards I've completed recently, most were in preparation for a gathering.

I absolutely love this stamp set, Flower Child, as well as Color My World. I used some papers from Sweet Pea paper kit but random stamped with Color My World on the left-hand card. I used coloring pencils and/or watercolor pencils for the children. Lilac Mist cardstock (on left) and Baby Pink cardstock (on right). I added Prisma Glitter to the petals on the large flower child and a Baby Pink My Accents spiral clip to the card on the right.

Also used Sweet Pea papers for this card, with Baby Pink and White Daisy cardstocks. Random stamped the sentiment "Happy Birthday" with For All Occasions stamp set in Baby Pink and sponged Breeze ink. Another fave, the Just Blooms Big Pinks flower in the center, adorned with a Spring craft button and Natural Hemp for the hole-fillers.

More Sweet Pea paper on the left and stamped with Color My World. The edges of the mats (Spring Iris and White Daisy) were distressed with our Edge Distresser and bottom edges torn to show the white core and so the stamped border would show. Some White Daisy ribbon (two pieces used: a straight piece with a knot, then a smaller folded piece folded and glued underneath). Ink colors were Citrus Leaf, Lilac Mist and Spring Iris.

The card on right was first stamped with VersaMark using the Simple Stitches stamp set, randomly placing the flowers on base. Lilac Mist used on the brayer and covered the base. White Daisy mat stamped with a sentiment from For All Occasions and Simple Stitches for the "stitching". I used a waterbrush to color a Just Blooms White Daisy flower, giving it a multi-color effect and added an Amethyst Bigger Brad.

Ah, the Creative Basics in the Spring 08 Idea Book. Love 'em. Sentiment and clock were stamped with Make It Count in Black ink. A Window Charms circle was added to the clock. The ribbon was from the Creative Basics kit.

Layouts layouts layouts

Trying to play catch-up again...a few layouts to add.

My grandson in the snow. Used CTMH (of course LOL) Just Chillin' papers with Vineyard Berry cardstock. Letters stamped with Essential Alphabet. White Daisy cardstock is the base, random stamped with New Fallen Snow in Vineyard Berry and Breeze. White Daisy cardstock torn for "drifts". Letters and "drifts" with 3-D Foam Squares underneath to add dimension. Some Snowflake craft buttons for embellies.

Products used for this layout were: My Acrylix stamp sets – “Soul Mates” and “Stitch Alpha”, My Reflections™ Silhouette Level 2 paper kit (Polka Dot and Multi-colored Floral), Cardstock - Black, Cranberry, and Colonial White, Designer Ribbon Rounds – Black Collection, Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads – Cranberry and Black, Sparkles – red, Waxy Flax – Black, and Coluzzle File Folder template (to hide journaling).

Yay! Visitors :)
