Happy Birthday

Love this stamp set.
I colored the flower with Tombow markers. The leaf is stamped with Old Olive Ink.
I cut both the flower and leaf out and popped them up off the card.
And added a piece of Design Paper for my background.
I used the border punch on the little piece of DP.
I put some Stickles in the centers of the little flowers so they would sparkle.
I don't think a card is done with out Ribbon, so I added white satin ribbon to it.
This is another way I used the stamp set.
I like this one also, the teal and black are fabulous together.
My white background is the Swiss Dots Folder.

Stamps: Stampin Up
Paper: Echo Park
Ink: Stampin Up & Memento Black
Ribbon: my stash
Embellish: Stickles Glitter

Happy Birthday Again

Here is another Birthday Card that might seem like it was here before. They are different only in the flower and the DP. This flower I just creased. I really like the other flower so much better. It is more dainty looking. What do you think?

Scroll down and check out the next card to see the difference in the flowers.

Happy Birthday

Love this card, the flowers are so pretty. I tried something new with them, first I punched them out with the flower punch and run then through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot Folder, second I creased them a little bit to make the petals curve some. And 3rd, I used vellum. They are just gorgeous. I did 2 flowers and off centered the petals put a little pink flower in the middle and then added a pale green brad.
The birthday sentiment is from Stampin Up, paper from a paper stack and the flower ribbon is from the Flower Factory.
Thank you for stopping by and come again soon.

Happy Valentine Day

This is the first Valentine Card I made for this year.
I think Red and Black are awesome for Valentine's Cards.
And the White makes the card more elegant.
I used the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss Folder for the background.
Isn't the size of LOVE awesome?
with the heart in the middle of the O, how cute.
Doesn't that make the card more special?
Always a card isn't done for me until I add the ribbon.
And last but not least I added the gel stones.
Gorgeous card.
Mostly Stampin Up items were used.

Christmas Spirit

Soon I will be done with all the Christmas Cards that I made a while ago. Most of them are so pretty, I really wanted to post them. Or they would be lost for ever in my computer somewhere until next year.
I just love the whimsical trees in this card. And really like the red and blue.
Stamps are Great Impressions. Colored with tombow markers and used a gold pen for the trimmings on the tree.

Thank You for stopping by and visiting my blog.
Have a great week...
