Birthday Card

While I was traveling recently, I found these wonderful spiritual coloring cards at the airport gift shop. I love to do coloring in my spare time and these are nice and small so that they can be finished quickly. I knew I would be able to mount them on cards and have a really fun spiritual and colorful card. I created this one recently to put on a card for my son's birthday.  I also used pearlescent watercolor paints for the background. (unfortunately, this does not show up well in the photo) I layered it on an embossed card before mounting it to the main card.

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.

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.
