"Flower Girl"

Sunday, June 26, 2011

It has been an interesting two weeks. We have had some pretty good winds that have taken down a lot of trees. It has really kept the utility companies busy restoring power. The big problem has been that we have gotten very little rain. Rain is what we really need.

Seeing that my power was not off, I did have a chance to clearup some cards that were in progress on my desk. Hopefully I can finish up the rest this week.

The card that I am posting today is from a set from " Stampin' Up" called "Bouquet Pascal". It's a cute set that the sentiments come in either French or English.

I call the card "Flower Girl" and it was made as a Birthday card. And here is the card;

"Flower Girl"

I used alot of different tools to make this card. The first one was an "Impressabilities" embossing plate from Spellbinders of butterflies, that has since I believe has been dicontinued. The second tool that I used was a punch from "Martha Stewart" call "Butterflies Deep Edge Punch". I used a Gold Glitter Pen to color the butterflies.

The last tool that I used, or should I say stamp set, was from "Just-Rite" and is called "Happy Everything Mini Tag Making Kit". The set is worth while because it has 18 different sentiment stamps, 5 dies to use with the sentiments and even a stamp block.

There was not much coloring on this card, except for the flowers and the easter eggs. I finished up the card with some Gold Stickles.

If you have any questions about this card, please leave it in the comments section. I will answer.

Hope you enjoy my card and that it will inspire you to try one of your own.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

"My Tummy Tickles......"

Monday, June 20, 2011

Todays card is from a very cheap stamp set that I bought at "The Stamping Place". Well, to tell you the truth, I did not really pick it out my wife did. She is always picking up stamp sets. She never colors any of them, but she likes them.

The stamp set is from S.W.A.L.K. Crafters Companion. The set cost $4.95, a very good price. Below is a picture of the stamp set;

"Thinking of You"

For the price it has enough elements in the set to make it interesting. And here is the card that I made with the set;

"My Tummy Tickles"

After the image was colored with copic markers, I cut the image out. As you can see the sentiments are arched. I cut these out with a Spellbinder , Scalloped Circle die using the two cut method to give me the top and bottom sentiments.

The image and sentiments elements were mounted with pop dots. Some red Stickles were added to give it some sparkle.

Hope you like the card and will leave a comment.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
