Purple-Flowered Get Well

Another very simple card - my favorite kind:) I was going through a large folder of stamped images a couple weeks ago and pulled out some to color and use. This is one of them. I simply colored the flowers and leaves with Copics. I added lines on the sides of the image panel instead of matting - it matches exactly that way! I have no idea who makes the stamps. I also added tiny, clear gems for the flower centers.

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

Masculine Birthday

Oops, I forgot to get this written up and posted. So, a little late, here is my next card. Just a simple one, but it was nice to get a couple cards made.

I started with a kraft card base. The patterned paper is from Gina K. I've had some twine for quite a while, but I had never used it, that I can remember. The sentiment is an old Stampin' Up tag set and punches. That's it:)

Finally!

Finally I had some time to make a card. Actually, I have three new ones to share - one at a time.

I'm sending this to a friend from our stamping group. I used Gina K stamps and dies for the leaves and flower. The sentiment is from Stampabilities. I mounted the flower on foam squares. I used some copper Glimmer Mist over the flower and also over the image panel. I matted with coordinating cardstock.

Pink Daisies for Nancy

Today is the birthday of a woman in our stamping group. She lives in Florida and we've never had the pleasure of meeting her in person. Here is the card I sent to her.

I cut the four smaller diamond-shaped pieces out of white, then temporarily taped them together. I stamped the images (two separate stamps) and colored them with Copic markers. I added some "specks" with an ancient Stampin' Up! stamp. I cut a large diamond out of black, separated the four smaller diamonds, and added them to the large diamond. The sentiment is from a different unbranded set.The diamonds were cut with QuicKutz dies.

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

Anniversary Celebrations

Paper piecing! I haven't done this for quite a while. I stamped the flowers and leaves on patterned paper and cut them all out. I added embellishments for the flower centers and popped the flowers up on foam squares. I added the leaves directly to the patterned paper layer. The flowers are from a new-to-me unbranded set and the sentiment is from Maya Road. Oh, and I drew in the stems with a fine point black marker.
