Wings of Friendship

Another avian card today, but this card is using the pretty little bird image from the Stampin' Up Wings of Friendship Hostess Level 2 set. I used Taken With Teal and Pumpkin Pie in both ink and cardstock. The piece of designer paper is from the Sweet Pea paper pack available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I can't seem to stop using the papers out of this pack. I keep going back to them again and again. Do you think Stampin' Up put something in the adhesive holding this pad together? It's addictive!
I popped up the wing as well as the larger flower on Stampin' Dimensionals. The flower has a clear rhinestone center and the bird has a tiny black rhinestone for his eye. Looks really pretty in person. Wish the picture was better. Oh well, I guess it will have to do.
Thanks for stopping by to visit today.

Blooming Irises

I love, love, love this card. Could be because I love purple and green together, could be because I love irises, could be all these things combined.
I used Copic markers to color in the iris image and then cut out the completed image with Nestabilities. I combined Certainly Celery and Lavender Lace cardstock with some patterned paper from Kaiser. The card was then topped off with a satin ribbon and dew drops.
This card just makes me happy. The irises should be blooming soon in the backyard of my childhood home. Sweet memories!
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to visit again soon.

Floating Flowers

Another pretty flower image to share. The flowers appear to be floating across the card. I used Stampin' Up Markers to color the flowers. The whole card is done in Taken With Teal and Whisper White from the cardstock to the designer paper. The DP is from the Welcome Neighbor paper pad that was available free (with a qualifying purchase) in the Sale-a-Bration catalog this year. I used the Scalloped Border punch that was also available for free in the Sale-a-Bration catalog. But there is good news because this border punch will be available for purchase in the future.

Thanks for stopping to visit.

This card was made yesterday at the Beach Senior Center and all the ladies loved it.

The three layer flower is made with the Scalloped Circle punch. Each Pretty in Pink circle was sponged with Pixie Pink ink on the edges, crumpled and then reformed into the flower you see here. I again used the Little Leaves die from Sizzix to complete the flowery display. Cardstock colors are Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana and Whisper White (embossed with a Cuddlebug folder).

See you soon.
