Wishing you get well wishes

This is a really cute card for someone who might not be having a good day. It is cheery, colorful and should put a smile on their face.
This was the quickest card that I have made in a long time. It when together really easy and fast. Add the layers, punch the corner and glue dot a penny in the slot and I added ribbon and done.
Inside the card:
This shouldn't look gray, it is actually white inside the base card.
My camera must have had a bad day.

Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: My Stash (you wouldn't believe my paper stash right now if you seen it, it is huge)
Ink: Memento Black
Embellishments: A corner Punch for the penny and ribbon with embroidery thread to tie the ribbon ends together.

Thank You

Another adorable creation made from the Two Step Bird Punch from Stampin Up. I think this bird wing made a cute tulip. I sponged the tulip with Pixie Pink Ink and glued the petals (wings) to form a tulip. And the branch of the Two Step Bird Punch made the stem for the tulip. I used a mint green for my base card, then I added the DP Map, a piece of scrap darker green for the stem and layered the mint green with pixie paper and of course Whisper White. I can't believe I didn't add ribbon or a brad somewhere on this card.

Paper: My stash
Ink: Memento Black and Pixie Pink
Punches: Two Step Bird Punch and Circle Punches from Stampin Up

It's all about You

It's all about you... Isn't that the best saying? I love it for a smaller child's birthday. With the colorful designer paper, perfect for a birthday. This card has a pull out sentiment. I colored the piece of cake with sparkle pens and cut it out and glued it on the bottom of the card. The cake looked like it was covered with glitter. Perfect for a birthday. The background stamp is from a Stampin Up wheel. The scalloped circle is from a nestie and the white circle, I did have a punch for it. Also I added black dots around the white circle with a gel pen and some pink ribbon. Love the sentiment for the insert. (At least for today).

Happy Birthday

Cute card today... I used this card for my workshop. And for the ladies that didn't have their moms anymore, this is what they made if they wanted. Otherwise the other ladies made this a Happy Mother's Day Card. I think the hat on the chair fit the Mother's Day theme perfect. I punched out some small flowers and cupped them a little bit and then added a black half circle for their centers. Also the ribbon choice was white sheer ribbon like this or some added black and white polka dot sheer ribbon. The black and white polka dot ribbon looked very nice. But I thought the white sheer was more elegant. I added the sentiment on a ribbon banner, which was popped up in the middle of the banner to give it some dimension. I really don't know the name of the designer paper, but if you want to know, email me and I will look it up and let you know what it is called. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog.

Friends are Flowers

I made this card with a new to me kind of ink or paint. I purchased some Smooch ink or paint. I thought this Smooch would match my designer paper perfect. The photo sure doesn't match the real card. The photo looks like the paper is pinky purple in some areas, but it really is a terra cotta or rusty color. Must have been the way the light glared on the card. Anyway, I loved using the Smooch, it paints on so perfect. It looks like a bottle of nail polish and comes in a lot of colors. And with this grapevine wreath stamp having tiny areas, it worked perfect. I added Olive Green Sheer Ribbon. Punched the corners and done.

Stamps: Great Impression and PSX (which is not in business now)
Paper: My stash
Embellishments: Ribbon and a corner punch.

Thinking of You

Don't you just love Teapots? I think they are so pretty. And this teapot has the prettiest tulips and pansies on it. I colored the flowers with my Tombows. Wow, I can just imagine what this would look like if it was colored with Copics. Gorgeous I'm sure. I used one of the labels from the Nesties. I used card stock from my stash. Love the silver paper. Added a bow, the sentiment and done.
Stamps are from Great Impressions.

Thank You for all your comments, I appreciate all of them.

Thank You

This is my card from using the wiper tutorial.
I think it turned out perfectly.
I used a whole lot of different stamp companies on this card. They range from There She goes, Hero and Clear Stamps.
Paper is from Bo Bunny.
Some Pink Gingham ribbon and a butterfly sticker. I love to do the piercing, so I did that in the two corners.

*Hope you stop back again to see more of my gallery of cards.

Happy Birthday

This is a very different Birthday Card. I love the background paper, from American Crafts I think. So simple and easy. I must say that the flower and card base is dark brown paper, not black. I know it looks really black, but it is brown. The ribbon is black polka dots. Hope you like it...
