Beautiful bowl of blooms

Happy Friday! As you read this I am in the mountains on a camping-jeeping trip probably freezing my tush off since there is snow. What am I thinking? I will tell you... I love my husband that much. hee hee  The things I do for that man. I enjoy it but the cold... not so much. On to my card that you came to see. 
This is the latest digi from Marcy called Bowl of Beauty and it SURE IS! I LOVE this new digi. She out did herself with all the digi's in the "bowl" theme if you ask me. 


Now my card is using two different pictures for my color inspiration. First is the deep pink/purple color combo for the Peony in this photo that I found on google. Sorry can't find it again to give the source, my bad.  :-( 


Isn't that so cool? I thought I can replicate that right... Well I tried to at least and it doesn't look too bad. 
Then I used this idea from Marcy's photo she put up on IG with the speckals in the Peonies. 

So back to my card again what do you think? Did I manage to get the essence of the flowers? A simple white background with some textured dots. A few pearl accents and a little bit of silver cord. Voila!

April basket of goodness

Welcome to the April Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge. Hope you an join us and play along. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week for my card and stamp set Simple Joys.


This was a quick card and I like how it turned out. Colored the basket of greenry with Copic markers and then added some sparkles. Used a strip of scrap paper and a strip of red for the top since I had flipped the sketch on the side. A few jewels and voila!

Cheery Hello

Happy Friday! Power Poppy has a weekend stamp deal for you on Happy Crabapple and Flowering Branches. Check out the PP Blog for all the details as this is a weekend steal only. 
This is a rather easy card as I trimmed down the image panel to fit the front of the card front. Colored with various Copic markers.


Added a textured pink panel for the base and some scallop behind the image panel. My sentiment with a pearl accent  and a few more for the top. Voila!

Welcome Lizzy Love

Happy Wednesday! Need a baby boy card for a friend and she loves giraffe's so I knew this Lizzy Love was going to be perfect! I colored her with various Copic markers and then die cut with a stitched rectangle. 


Die cut some matching stitched scallops that I am rather fond of as of late to the top and bottom of the gingham paper.  :-)  Die cut a few balloons and added sparkles. The sentiment is from TE Many Minis Occasions stamp set. Wrapped a little bit of twine through the button and voila! She is going to love this. Thanks for stopping by today.

We've got this...

This is a new from Sassy Cheryl's collection called Bunny Assistants. Too fun! This was perfect for an encouraging card that I need to hand out. A simple design as I colored the image and then die cut with a stitched rectangle. 


Added a bit of gingham paper and a scallop edge to the bottom. Wrapped a piece of orange ribbon above the gingham edge and tie a twine bow with a button. A little bit of sparkle and voila!

No Orchids here but on paper

Good morning. We surely do not have any flowers here right now as the snow has just finally melted. In fact today is the first day we are on the baseball fields. GASP!!! This is week 3 of baseball season and they are just now getting on the field. Its been a crazy year with our weather. The 3 double headers that were scheduled have been moved thankfully but that means long weeks ahead for April.
 Anyways... you didn't come here to hear about baseball. How about some flowers on paper?   This is Ruffled Wild Orchid from the Instant Garden collection oooohhhhaaaahhh! 


A simple design for this birthday card. I tucked the birthday sentiment in the corner of the leaves and then hit print.  Then colored with Copic markers in the lovely springy shades of purple. The scallop edge along the side and some silver cord. A few pearls and voila. Notice no sparkles? Yes I am feeling okay, just didn't put any on this one. HA!

Friend you amaze me

My card today is using the set Vibrant Thanks. This card has several layers on top of layers which was not intended at all. 
I stamped the flower off on scrap paper before I stamped it onto the white base layer for just a hint of the image. The sentiment and the main flower are stamped onto the center white base. 


Then when I laid the vellum over the white base I stamped the flower lightly as I did the background. It really brought the flower depth out quite a bit that way and I didn't intend for that to happen, but it looks cool. To cover the glue dots holding the vellum over the white layer I added sequins to the corners. I really like how this turned out, heavy card or not.  :-)  Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
