Large Flower "best wishes"

This large flower is stamped with a wood-mounted stamp that I recently received from a friend (in the two huge totes that I got and sorted through.) I thought I would use it before I put it away. I stamped it three times on water color cardstock. I colored each one with Zig Clean Color Markers, basically the same on each one, but with different colors of green for the leaves and stem. I matted each with purple cardstock and added some sequins from Gina K. The patterned paper on each is from Gina K, also. I added a thin strip of the same purple cardstock along the edge of each patterned paper.

Simple Thinking of You

Just a very simple "thinking of you" card for today. I made two of these. I had a piece of this patterned paper in 12 x 12. I cut it down to place around a can for storage in my stamping room, and had a leftover (approximately 2 1/2 x 12) piece. Hence these cards. I added a strip of the green cardstock, which I embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, and also the sentiment. I

Glitter Flowers

When I recently cut out a sentiment from glitter cardstock, I used some flower dies to cut these out of the left-over. I used them on this card, rather than put them into my card parts. I glued them onto some black cardstock and then embossed the entire panel with a Darice embossing folder - my favorite one. I added it to some purple cardstock and then another layer of black. I added the sentiment and added it to an ivory card base.

Birthday Wishes

Another simple card for today - my favorite kind. This image is from Gina K's incentive kit from last month. The sentiment is from the set, too, as is the patterned paper on the edges. I simply stamped the image and colored with Copic markers. I also added thin metallic sticker strips on each side of the white panel. I made three of these cards - one to keep to two to give away.

"Up-cycled" Thank You

For some reason, I like to "up-cycle" thank you notes that we receive. The floral piece on this card was one of those cards. I matted it, added the sentiment, and then popped up a piece of ephemera from a Gina K card kit on it. The striped paper background is from a very ancient matstack - circa 2003!
