Secret Garden

  • The card base is Pear Pizzazz with the front of the card embossed with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.
  • I stamped the flowers from Secret Garden was stamped on Naturals White CS with Versamark and Heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge Crushed Curry Ink on the centers of the flowers then worked out from the centers with Daffodil Delight Ink. I ran them through the Big Shot with the Secret Garden Framelits.
  •  On a piece of Naturals White CS I stamped the greeting from Bring on the Cake in Versamark and heat embossed it with Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder. I cut it with a Circle Collection Framelit and layered it on a circle of Daffodil Delight CS. I layered it on a Tea Lace Paper Doily and then layered it on the card base.
  • I adhered two of the flowers and a leaf cut from Pear Pizzazz CS to the card base, I added Dimensionals to the back of the third flower and popped it up over the two flowers on the base.

  • I colored the stamp of the poppy from Simply Sketched with markers and then stamped it on a piece of Whisper White CS.
  • I colored the phrase from the same set with markers and stamped it on a scrap of Whisper White CS and cut it out with a Labels Framelit.  I sponged the edges with Calypso Coral Ink then added Dimensionals to pop it up on the card base.

Thoughts & Prayers, Love & Sympathy

I saw this picture on Pinterest and loved the color combo, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede or Backed Brown Sugar and Gold, I worked most of the colors into my card.

  • The card base is Baked Brown Sugar CS. I used the Envelope Punch Bourd to round the lower right and upper left corner. I layered it with Cherry Cobbler then Night of Navy CS rounding the same two corners.
  • On a piece of Natural White CS I stamped the floral spray from Thought & Prayers with Versamark and heat embossed it with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. I stamp the sentiment from Love and Sympathy in Versamark and heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. I layered it onto the layered card base.

Happy Birthday

I love the winged starburst from Great Sport, I have never used it with any of the stamps from the same set but have used it with stamps from Blue Ribbon.

  • The card base is Pool Party CS layer with Whisper White and then Pacific Point.
  • With Versamark I stamped the image from Great Sport and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.
  • I stamped the greeting from Blue Ribbon in Pacific Point onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and the punched it out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and popped it up with Dimensionals and centered it in the embossed image.
Fast and easy, my kind of card.

Simply Fabulous Simply Sent

I love the laser cut of the of the Simply Fabulous kit, I love it as a layer on a card.

  • The card base is Smoky Slate, layered with the piece from the Simply Fabulous Simply Sent Kit.
  • I added a layer of Crisp Cantaloup then another of Whisper White. I stamped the floral image from Forever With You in Crisp Cantaloup, twice.
  • On a scrap of Whisper White I stamped the phrase from Best of Greetings in Versamark and heat embossed it with Pewter Embossing Powder. I cut it out with the Labels Collection Framelits and popped it up with Dimensionals over the stamped images on the card front.
I think it makes a pretty card.
