Happy Birthday to You

I am back again with a card I made over the weekend using Flourishes Summer Blossoms.  I love the rainbow look that I ended up with.  It kinda reminds me of rainbow sherbet.

I couldn't decide which color looked best with the pretty papers so I decided to use all 3.  If you come here often you know I usually stick with my usual natural and white cardstock for my card and base.  I felt like some color was in order on this one.  I love the bright colors!


I used the sketch at Cardabilities.

MFT Thank You

Hello again!  I had some time to get in my craft room this afternoon and play along with the newest MFT Wednesday Stamp Club.  I ordered these cute new LJD Sweet Roses stamp set and matching die-namics dies.  I made sure to order them on release night.  I made a HUGE mistake and didn't order the Poppies last month and they are still on back order.  I hate it when I do that!

As you can see, I die cut the flowers in patterned paper then stamped the outline image on top.  Do you like the die tab with the sentiment stamped on it?  Funny how that happened.  I originally stamped it directly onto the graph patterned paper BUT, it was crooked.  So instead of ripping it off I covered up my boo boo with a band aid.  I actually like how it looks this way better.  The paper I used is from Echo Park called Sweet Girl.


Thanks so much for stopping by,

Welcome to the NinaB Designs Blog Hop! The theme of this month's hop is Stamping Techniques. Nina challenged the team to do a technique, which could be as simple as coloring, die-cutting or more involved like emboss resist, making your own embellishments, etc.

For my card I used the beautiful set from The Craft's Meow called Flower Garden.  With different flower head and leaf choices this set has so many possibilities.  I stamped my flowers and stems with two shades of ink color to give it that little extra affect.  The cute little tag is from Love Dwells Here stamp set and matching dies.  The border die is one of Nina's designs called Classic Petal.


The NinaB Designs team is giving away these TWO PRIZE PACKAGES:
Prize #1
 Prize #2: TCM's Crafty Shelf and Retired LOC Elegant Labels set
Winners will be picked randomly from 2 of the designers' blogs:

There are always flowers...

First, I want to say thank you for all the sweet comments that everyone has left on my blog the last couple days.  I am glad you have enjoyed the new release.  After a few days of peeks and tons of eye candy courtesy of the Flourishes Design Team, we're happy to share that the April sneaks are over and all of the sets we've been showing off are LIVE in the Flourishes Store HERE! Today, we bring you one more hop and this one will have you hopping past the garden gate to see a bevy of beautiful roses!

I love the beautiful roses in this set.  I decided to stamp and cut the flowers out and place them along the side of the sentiment.  This is a more CAS design compared to what I normally do.  I really liked the yellow and turquoise papers together with the roses, don't you?



Garden Gate, illustrated by Marcella Hawley, takes the beauty of a shrub rose and makes it a card maker's delight! The set features one beautiful arched shrub rose branch and a fun-filled,whimsical scene welcoming you beyond the garden's gate. This 4 by 6" set also offers 5 beautifully scripted sentiments. Would you like to win this set? Well, just as we have done in past release weeks, we offer our little guessing game of….
