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.

Thanks for visiting!

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:

Masculine Get Well

I made this card for a masculine get well card. 
I chose the Crushed Curry because the color reminds me of Chicken Soup, definitely a get well remedy!
The idea came from a card by Mary Fish, and I loved the layout.

I used Perfectly Penned for the sentiment, and the mug is from Scentsational Seasons stamp set, retired. The Chevron embossing folder adds a great textured background.  The grosgrain ribbon was tinted with a Crushed Curry ink pad and a sponge.

Thanks for visiting!
