Color Pop

One of the techniques you see around the various card making blogs and in the magazines is a card designed with most of the stamping done in dark or neutral colors and then one item done in a bright color.  I tried that with this card using the Gina K With Love and Prayers mini stamp set from the Stamp TV kit Journey of the Heart.  The sentiment is from another of the mini stamp sets from the same kit, Little Branches.  I stamped the flower and branches using Memento brown and then I stamped a flower using two shades of orange for the petals and brown for the center, I then fussy cut it and adhered it over one of the brown flowers.  I added the sentiment over a thin strip of dark brown card stock.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Purple and Yellow Tulips

Large stamps are the most wonderful stamps to have if you don't want to do a lot of layers.  I have this tulip stamp from Northwoods Rubber Stamps that is so great to color.  I have two sympathy cards that I made with this image that I just love.  I really like this frilly tulip and I think it makes a wonderful card.  What do you think.  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Mary

Today is my sister's birthday and so I thought this would be an appropriate card for a retired school teacher.  The stamp is from Lockhart Stamps.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Sick as a Dog

I've had two stamps in my collection from different companies, a sentiment from Custer's Last Stamp and an image from Great Impressions, that go perfectly together. So I made these cards and I hope you like them and thanks for stopping by.

Signs of Spring

We see3med to have skipped right over spring and gone back to fall, maybe we'll get another stab at summer but I'm really beginning to wonder.  We just changed over from flannel sheets to cotton and the temps dropped right back down to where I need a sweatshirt to be comfortable. I needed a taste of spring or summer so I decided to post this card using the Gina K set Signs of Spring set designed by Theresa Momber. This is a great flower to color and if you watch this video you'll see how easy it is to color. Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by.
