Simple card one stamp and saying??


This is a card I did with just one flower stamp and one saying.I stamped the saying on the card and then stamped the flowers on the cards in a random way as to fill the whole card. I used a momemnto flannel grey ink to give a soft look to the flowers. I colored them with Copic markers in soft muted colors.The stamps are from JustRite stampers ( Botanical Medallions and Banners).This was a stretch for me. I love how it turned out. This card is being entered in Mod Squads challenge blog DYI challenge to make your own designer paper or back ground paper. Be sure to stop over and see all of the wonderful cards the other  talented paper crafter's cards.

Spring purse card ready for Easter




I am still coloring flowers trying to get in the spring mood here. I had some purse cards setting around and I decided to use them as my card base. I embossed the bottom of the purse with a sizzix embossing folder. I then stamped my flowers on a circle of water color paper and one all by it self that I will cut out. I used water color pencils to color them. I cut out the one flower I had stamped on it's own. I die cut a doily from some pastel paper. I layered the doily,flower circle and then the single flower( with a pop dot) on the front of the purse flap.I added some sheer ribbon for the handle and I ended up with a very spring looking purse card. I did 3 different colors just for fun. I can not decide which one I like best.

Pretty pink roses


Well I am longing for spring like many of you out there. I pulled out some flower stamps to get me in a better mood.Pink makes me think of spring and all the things that spring brings like Easter,Weddings, first communions,Proms.
  This card is a pretty pop of pink with the roses colored with water color pencils on water color paper. I did a little masking with the rose stamp to pull the flowers into a tighter arrangement. I matted them with a pretty spellbinders pink mat and then to give it an even softer pink look I attached it to a soft pink gingham paper.
  The stamp I used is a rose from Raisin Boats Blissfull Blossoms
   Pull out some of your flower stamps and play it will hopefully give you some joy and hope that spring is coming.
