A Little Behind....

I've gotten a little behind on my posts, so hold onto your hats, because I have lots to show you : ) This first card is one I posted yesterday, but I just didn't quite like it, so I tweaked it. It just really seemed off balance, and I like this version much better! I used my set from Artful INKables called Sunburst Dandies. I love this set, because the color combinations you can use with this beautiful bloom are endless, and it's soooo easy! I stamped the flowers in Tempting Turquoise, and the center with Pumpkin Pie. The stem is Kiwi Kiss. The dp is from DCWV Citrus Matpack. I used my new SU Eyelet Border Punch and added some Dew Drops and ribbon for embellishments. The sentiment was cut out with Shapeabilities Ribbon Tag Trio and sponged with Tempting Turquoise. I hope you like it!

This next card I made for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. My sister recently asked me if I could make some Cinco de Mayo invitations for a party her and her husband are having. I really didn't know what to do, but I found this stamp at a Hobby Lobby while we were on vacation. When I saw today's layout, I thought it was perfect! I colored the image in with Prismacolor Premier Pencils and used Turpenoid and blending stumps to blend. The dp comes from SU Washington Apple DSP. I used my Eyelet Border Punch once again and some Dew Drops and ribbon. The bg is embossed with my Swiss Dots CB Folder. Hopefully my sister will like them, and I better get busy because I need to make 25 of them!Finally this last card is my submission for this week's
Fun-Frilled Challenge to make an Easter card. My inspiration came from this card by Amy Sheffer (PickleTree on SCS). The stamps are from the I Am the Way set by Our Daily Bread Designs. I stamped the lilies each twice, cut out the flowers, and popped them up on dimensionals. I colored the stems in with Sage Shadow. The frame is a Bosskut die called Vintage Tag and the dp is from Making Memories Flower Patch. I added some paper piercing, the ribbon, and Kaiser Latte Pearls and it was complete!
