Sympathy Card

Always hard when you need to make a sympathy card. I like clean and simple to be able to express myself inside.

September Stamp 'n Chat card

This was my card for this month's chat. I used the stamp set "Hello Color" for the main focus of the card. The greeting is from "Happy Birthday Gorgeous."  I used the watercolor pencils for the coloring and then the aqua painter to blend and brighten them.  The flower is die cut from the gold foil card stock with the Sunshine Wishes thinlits.
It took me a while when I was creating this to get just the effect that I wanted. I think it ended up looking very nice.

July Stamp 'n Chat Card

This was my card for last evening's stamp 'n chat. I used some of the new stamps, inks, and DSP from the newest Stampin' Up catalog.  Thank you to Lyssa Zwolanek for the instructions for the card construction.

Some fun new birthday cards

I recently found these cute girl stamps by The Greeting Farm and thought they would be perfect for some upcoming family birthdays! I am hoping to get the boy set soon so I can make some cards for my grandsons too!

June Stamp 'n Chat

This was my card for this month's chat. I hadn't yet received my new items from Stampin' Up and their new in-colors, so I used some from the previous year.  This involved some 2-step stamping and some stamping off of the solid images.  I also gave the gals the option of mounting it horizontally rather than vertically.
