Grace’s Garden

Grace’s Garden was the first bundle I had to own when the mini catalog first came out. Here is one of the cards I made with the bundle.

I love the flowers in Grace’s Garden. There are also sentiments in the set although I didn’t use them for this card. I colored in the (more…)

Parisian Blossoms

The Parisian Blossoms Suite has many items to create beautiful floral cards. Here are a couple cards I made with the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I love the soft colors in these cards. The metal edge ribbon give just the right amount of bling and pop to the card. I made this card for a (more…)

Positive Thoughts

How appropriate is the name of this stamp set for these days? The Positive Thoughts stamp set is a great choice whether you need a birthday, anniversary, get well or thinking of you card. Find a color combination you like, gather your supplies and start creating! Here is a card we made at my last workshop.

I trimmed down the 6″ side to layer with coordinating cardstock because layering makes the colors pop off the designer paper and adds more interest. I added some of the Peaceful Poppies Sequins for more dimension. It’s a nice touch to stamp the envelope with a coordinating stamp to the card inside. This time I sponged a little color on the image.

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

Happy Birthday To You

I have a couple of friends who are blessed to start off the new year with their birthdays so I usually make them a card using a new stamp set from the new Mini catalog or the new Sale-A-Bration catalog. It gets my creative juices going after the holidays. This time I chose the Happy Birthday To You stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. You can get this set for Free with a $50 purchase. Isn’t is beautiful?

The flowers can be colored in with watercolor pencils however (more…)
