Tiny Flowers

A simple card using die cuts, sticker, gems, stamp, markers and punch:) The image panel was a left-over die cut. I stamped the green with a Gina K stamp. The flowers were punched out of white and colored with three colors of Copics. I added gems for the centers. I cut a white mat and used a Copic to color the edges of it. I added anther die-cut layer with a stitched square die. The card base and layers are ivory.

Die-Cut Flower Silhouettes and Sticker Sentiments

I received a set of flower silhouette dies and have used them all on today's cards. They are unbranded. When I was in Des Moines, I bought a package of Mrs. Grossman birthday sentiment stickers. I like the fonts on them. There were three sheets in the package and each sheet consists of two sets of the same sentiment fonts. I have used up one complete set so far ... five to go!

The image panel on this first one is mounted on foam squares.
For this second one, I embossed the background with a Darice Wire Fence folder and scored a line between the embossing and the sentiment. Then I added color with the matting.
I had this die-cut (almost) square laying on my table from a short while ago, and also the punched butterfly had been on my table for a long, long time. I added black gems for the butterfly's body and mounted the panel on foam squares. I also added a thin strip of black.
I added two of the die cuts to this card.

Happy Birthday, Joyce!

A birthday card for a group member. Her birthday was yesterday. The image was stamped a couple years ago at our Gathering. I believe it's from Penny Black, but I'm not certain. It was done by coloring the rubber stamp with markers, misting slightly and then stamping. The sentiment is a sticker. I matted with matching cardstock. Hard to see, but I also added three drops of Nuvo Drops.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Cute Critters

I cut these elephants, giraffes and lions last month in Des Moines. They are so cute. I added tiny gems for the elephants' and the giraffes' eyes. For this first card, I used a square of light pink and matted with gray. I mounted the elephant on foam squares. The sentiment is stamped in gray and is from Papertrey Ink.
I cut the lions out of yellow and also out of brown, and used the brown for his mane. He is mounted on foam squares. I used a strip of yellow and brown for him to rest on. The sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink.
I cut the shape for the elephant to rest on using an oval die. The elephant is popped up. I embossed the background piece using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment is from PTI.
I made two cards exactly like this one. I matted an ivory panel with brown cardstock and added a sticker sentiment. The giraffe is mounted on foam squares.

And one last card, using another lion. The sentiment on this one is also a sticker.
