Rustic Rooster-Trivet

I used the brown Stazon that Stampin' UP used to carry to stamp the rooster and the border on this tile. I used the felt pads used for chair legs to keep them from scratching floors, to keep the tile from scratching the counter top. Really simple to make.

Fun & Fast Notes-Wedding

I used the Stampin' UP Simple Flower for the back ground of this card, I dabbed a little Pretty in Pink chalk on the center of each of the flowers. I stamped the image in Stazon on Whisper White CS and colored it with Going Grey, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, and Barely Banana Stampin' Write markers. I matted it with Pink Pirouette CS than centered it on the card front. I used the Organza Ribbon tied on the side.

A Beautiful Thing/One of a Kind

One of a Kind, Fresh Cuts, A Beautiful Thing, are all stamp sets I used for this card. I think I should have stamped 2/3 of the card and only left 1/3 blank. I done like the simple look of this card.

Friendly Words/Great Friend

A simple card to make! I ran the wheel over my Bordering Blue pad, then colored over one of the phrases with my Chocolate Chip Marker, rolled it on Whisper White. I used Chocolate Chip CS to mat the phrase and the piece of Designer paper from Bella Birds. The butterfly is fro Great friends I stamped it with Bordering Blue then cut it out attached it with Mini Glue Dots. The base is Pink Pirouette CS.

Thoughts of Father

Watercoloring is my favorite! I used ink pads this time it makes the watercoloring a little more vibrant. After folding the Very Vanilla in half I cut 1 3/4" off the front, from this scrap I used 1" for the band. I used the word window punch for the slot that the band goes into. I matted the image with Tangerine Tango as well as the yellow print of the designer paper. (I thought until recently that the image was a watering can, I laughed when I found out it was an oil can)

Oval All and Walk in the Park

These are a fun and easy card to make, Finished size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I used three sides of the Walk in the Park designer paper from the Occasions Mini. I love punches so it was funny that when I pre-ordered I didn't even notice the new punch until after I turned my order in, I now own it, but didn't when I made these cards. The base of the card was cut at 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" then folded to the 5 1/2" you can adapt the top piece to fit what ever you want to show.

Great Friend

The colors don't show real well, they are So Saffron and Basic Black. I used the Manhattan Flower die on the Basic Black, then mounted it on the So Saffron card base. I stamped the butterfly from the Occasions mini in Stazon (I like stazon black better then basic Black) on So Saffron then cut it out, folded it then used mini glue dots on the fold but placed dimentionals under the wings to keep them up. The "for you" is stamped on So Saffron and place in the Hodgepodge Hardware Designer Label. I layered Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon on So Saffron Grosgrain ribbon, then mounted the hardware on top.

The paper on this card is fro the "To the Nines" the colors in it are Sahara Sands, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow. I used the image from "Say It with Scallops", I just punched it with the 1 3/8" Circle punch, after stamping it with Sage Shadow on Whisper White. The card base is Sahara Sands

b is for birthday

I like this card! The designer paper is from Bella Rose and Candy Lane They are matted on Close to Cocoa and Riding Hood Red. I used Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, and Ruby Red markers to color the stamp, before stamping it on Whisper White. I used a Rhinestone Brad in the center of the flower and ties the narrow band of paper with the double side Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon.

Easter Wishes

I made this card during Sale-a-bration but didn't get it posted because of computer issues. I decided since it's an Easter card to post it anyway. Card base is Sahara Sand, Layered with Bashful Blue, So Saffron, and Certainly Celery. I used an image watercolored from Pocket Silhouettes. The band across the top is the Sale-a-bration designer paper Bordered by Whisper White. I also used the Sale-a-bration ribbon.
