Flower Power Thank You Card

I purchased the Flower Power Card Elements kit on page 167 in the catalog. I have never purchased any of the kits before. This was very easy to do. All supplies are included and the directions to make the cards. Each kit makes 9 cards (3 each in 3 styles). This is one of the styles I created tonight. All you need is the Wow Flowers stamp set, stamp pads, adhesive and envelopes. Everything else is provided. Great idea for a new stamper.

We are going to creating one of the cards at the Retirement Party on Saturday. Sure hope that you enjoyed your visit.

God Bless.

Happy Father's Day

Here is the card I created for Father's Day. This was a fun card that I tried making it look like a license plate. I stamped the letter using the Jumbo Outline Alphabet and then filled in the letter with the marker.

Sure hope that you have a fun time today with your own dad. We are going to spend the day with my dad. He has four daughters, so he is special to all of us.

Have a blessed day.

Brayed Roses

Here is fun card that created after seeing how Patty Bennett used the brayer to add color to the roses. It is fun and easy card to create. There are 3 colors in the roses. First use the Manhattan Flower textured impressions die on the white shimmery card stock. Turn the flowers over so you are coloring with the brayer on side where the lines are the flowers are in (usually we use the line out). Use the brayer to add the color (rose red, blush blossom and so saffron). You start out with the darkest color to the lightest color. Run the brayer over the flower (it's OK to have no color on some space). Each color adds more color to the flower.

Sure hope that you enjoyed your visit today. This card looks so good in person. God Bless.

Graduation card for my niece Alyssa

Today is my mom's birthday, "Happy Birthday to you Mom".

Here is a graduation card that I created for my niece Alyssa. She loves the zebra print and pink. So this card was designed just for her. I used the retired graduation stamp set with basic black and rose red card stock plus the zebra print paper I found at the scrapbook store. The black ribbon on the front is from the Ribbon Originals package and also I used the scallop punch.

Sure hope you enjoyed your visit today. Again Happy Birthday Mom.
