Floral with Die Cut Backgound


Hello Everyone

Today I would like to share more of the cards I have been making lately.  The cards showcase a floral image added to a die cut background.  I am afraid I really got carried away making this design.  I just wanted to see how it looked in every color.  LOL.  But the upside is that I ended up with lots of beautiful cards. 

Floral stamp, Beautifully Happy, is from Stampin' Up

Pink Tulle was added as an embellishment on most of the cards.

Die cut is from Sizzix

Looks great in any color.  I took inspiration from a design I saw on a Stampin' Up blog.  I changed it a bit with the addition of the tulle and a different die cut.

I think the cards could even be used for a wedding celebration.  I will add sentiments to the cards I keep for myself as I need them. The rest of the cards will go to my BFFs.  

So happy you stopped by today.  I will be back next time with another set of cards made with this same stamp and a different background. 

Hope you are having a lovely day!!

Ferns and Florals

 Hello Everyone,

Hope you are having a great day. I have been making lots of cards lately. Most will go to friends that need cards to send out.  I always make extras for myself too. I find it so fun to just get the creativity going and make a stack of cards.  I have a few new stamp sets that I want to try out too.  Everybody is happy. LOL 

I made hand stamped backgrounds for all of the cards. The first card has a script stamped background which was distressed with inks.

Stamps: All from Stampin' Up except large script which is from AMuse stamps

The second card has the script stamping with more distressing with distress inks.

On the next card I used smaller stamps to create the background and then large leaf designs were stamped.  And then I did the distressing.

This card uses different stamps with the same technique.  I continued the red and pink color scheme and added some purple.

The cards were fun to make and will make great all occasion cards.  You may have noticed that there are no sentiments on the cards.  My BFF did not want any sentiments.  She said that then she could use any card for any occasion.  She will write a message on the inside.  

So glad you topped by today.  See you next time!!

Happy St Patrick's Day

 Hello Everyone

I wanted to make a quick post today to share a few St Patty's Day cards I made for friends and family.  

I started with a green color scheme, of course.  The sentiment was stamped with green ink, die cut, layered, and added to card front.  Beer mugs were stamped, die cut, and added with dimensional adhesive.

Supplies used:
Green cardstock and decorative papers from Stampin' Up
Green doily
Green pearls
Green ribbons
Stamps: Beer mugs from Stampin' Up, Humorous sentiment from Funny Bones
Die cuts

Hope you are enjoying a mug of green beer to celebrate the day!  Irish blessing to you!!  

So glad you stopped by today and I will be soon with more cardmaking ideas.
