Oh So Pretty

I was really disappointed when the "5th Avenue Floral" set retired a few years ago. But when SU retires something they usually replace it with something even better. So with the Occasions catalog 2016 we got the "Rose Garden Thinlits Dies" and they are sooooo pretty. 



For this card I cut out a window frame from Whisper White cardcstock. Then I cut the rose and the leaves and glued it to the back of my frame. To make it pop I used some Calypso Coral cardstock as the background and mounted the layers on a white card. Finish it off with some color coordinating ribbon and done! So stunning!

Too Cute!

Happy Valentine's day everybody! I just love this little bird.  For the card below I used watercolor paper and the SU! markers. To blend the ink I used a blender pen and an Aqua Painter.

Less is More

This is another spin on the card I posted yesterday. It is simplified but that puts the balloon even more into focus and really makes it pop. Simple cards are sometimes a real challenge for me but I totally like how this one turned out.



Happy stamping,

Valentine's Balloon

Balloons are always fun but the coordinating balloon punch makes them even more fun! It just makes creating and assembling cards so quick and easy. For those of you who still need an inspiration for Valentine's Day, here we go.

More tea?

I sure hope you are not getting tired of this bundle yet because I am not done playing with it any time soon. This is a perfect card for those make ahead cards to add to your stack for when you need one on the fly. With that sentiment the card can be used for many different occasions whether it's a birthday, a thank you or even Valentine's Day.


Happy stamping,

My Cup of Tea

I finally had time to play with the with the "A Nice Cuppa" stamp set and the coordinating dies from the occasions catalog. The new background set "Timeless Textures" is a perfect match for that bundle. I like to think a little out of the box when using my stamp sets  or dies and I challenged myself to use this one for Valentine's cards. I think it turned out really cute.



Did you discover the new  "Wink of Stella Glitter Brush" yet? So easy and clean to apply some sparkle to the cards with that pen. It's kind of hard to capture that in a picture but I applied it to all the little hearts and it look really pretty.
