I really like sunflowers so I needed to play with the sunflower stamp in the Jar of Flowers stamp set. I always need more thank you cards so this was what I came up with. Of course this would make nice birthday or thinking of you cards too!
I used the Blends to color in the stamped image. Remember to only color (more…)

Check out the Peaceful Poppies Suite on page 24 in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. The bright colors and beautiful flowers just jump off the page!
I love the different patterns on each page of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper because they are wonderful for making some quick cards or scrapbook pages.

This card also uses the Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper. A large sentiment looks (more…)
