Revisiting Easter Blossoms

These lovely blossoms make a beautiful Spring card.
The blossoms were stamped with Baked Brown Sugar ink on Pretty in Pink card stock.
The Thinking of you sentiment is from the Wetlands stamp set.
The tiny butterfly is from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.  The Accents Edgelit was used to create the graceful edge on the lower edge of the card, using Baked Brown Sugar card stock.
I also used the Stampin' chalk marker to accent the centers of some of the flowers.

Thanks for visiting!

Petal Punch and Thinlits

Here's a birthday card I made recently.  I used the new Hexagon thinlits to cut out the honeycomb pattern, then stamped it with the retired Weathered background stamp.
Next, the petite petals punch was used to create the flowers from more of the Watercolor wonder dsp.  Each flower was sponged with an ink dauber and decorated with a small rhinestone.  A  birthday banner was stamped with the Banner Greetings Hostess set to complete the card.

Back Yard Basics with Honeycomb

I love this cute bee from the Back Yard Basics stamp set.  It is fun to color and  easy to cut out with  the coordinating framelits dies.
The sentiment is from the Too Kind stamp set and is punched out with the extra large oval punch.
Card stock colors are Crushed Curry, Basic Black, and Whisper White.  The Honeycomb embossing folder is perfect for this card.

Simple Stems Card for Spring

These lovely flowers are from the Simple Stems stamp set (pg. 33 Occasions Catalog).  My  inspiration came from a layered card by Ann Schach.  I loved the combination of colors.  The DSP is one of the free Sale-a-Bration products available through March 31st  with a qualifying purchase.
There is lots of cutting and layering to give the 3-D look, but I enjoyed putting it all together.  The flowers are embellished with Basic Pearls of various sizes.
The Secret Garden Framelits Dies were used for the large flower and the leaf stem.
Paper Piercing adds detail on the white background. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Petals stamp set.

You have just a few more days left to make your purchase and earn a free Sale-a-bration product before it ends on March 31st. 

Thanks for stopping buy!

Too Kind meets Gorgeous Grunge

Two-Step stamping brings a bright burst of color to this card.
I used the flowers from the Too Kind stamp set, and added background with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
I chose Blushing Bride and Rose Red for the color combination, with Whisper White as the neutral shade.
When I decided to use three flowers on this card I discovered it qualified as an entry for the Less is More Challenge. I needed to use 3 of something in the design, and comment on 3 other entries in this challenge.
You may want to look at some of the fun cards that I found in this challenge:
