big flowers...

What fun this card was to make.
Hobby Lobby has been clearing out a lot of their paper crafting items.
I found this package of paper flowers by Paper Studios called "Poppies & Paperie".
In the package the flowers came with clear crystals for the centers but I dug through my stash to find my large black brads and used them for the center.
The base card is white linen card stock on which I stamped the "smile" from a Momenta set with StazOn jet black ink.
Then it was time to put the flowers together and arrange them on the card front with heavy duty double back tape.
Once they were set I trimmed the edges with scissors.

one third...

What a quick and easy card only needing to fill one third of the card.
The card is white linen card stock.
The verse from Paper Smooches "Spreading Sunshine" is stamped with StazOn jet black ink.
Paper tape was used to tape down the MFT "Sun Ray" stencil.
Once it was taped down I sponged Distress squeezed lemonade ink.
Then I finished it b stamping the smile from Paper Smooches "Healthy Vibes" with the StazOn.

little birds...

Things are difficult at the moment as my computer froze so I have to use hubby's!
The card is white linen card stock.
The birds and balloons are from Paper Smooches "Smoocheroos" and I stamped them with MFT Premuim insulation pink.
The no line coloring was done with Prisma pencils.
The grass was made by making a mask from a post it note that I die cut with Taylored Expressions "Grass Border Die", then sponged with Distress twisted citron ink.

a little thanks...

So I have this friend who enjoys getting my cards and wants to reciprocate but doesn't stamps.
Instead she sews...

Well I just have to make her a thank you note and found the stamp that, sort of, matched the towel.
The card is made of white linen card stock.
Because I wanted to do a no line I chose this image by Inkadinkadoo and stamped it with Marvy Matchable pale orange ink.
The coloring was done with my Prisma pencils.

beauty in simplicity...

This verse seemed appropriate for "Less Is More".
The card is white linen card stock.
Using Tim Holtz layering stencil "Blossom", Distress inks crushed olive & worn lipstick and sponge daubers, I sponged the flowers on the card.
Using Tim Holtz "Perspective" set I stamped the verse using the crushed olive ink.
After allowing it to dry thoroughly I colored the word with Distress marker worn lipstick.
