Fabulous Fern Fronds!

This card creation features a Hero Arts fern frond.  I embossed the stamped image with peppered turquoise opaque embossing powder.  The background paper was inked and blended with Ranger distress ink.  A card to send to someone special.

Have a Lovely Day! card

My Favorite Things stamps are so cute and can be used in a variety of ways.  This card is created like a paper doll. Each of the pieces of the little girl are stamped, colored with markers and are cut out.   All of the pieces are put back together.  Time to mail to a friend.Image 5

Happy Trees!

Time to think leaves!  I used a Hero Arts tree stamp, one I had used for a Christmas card last year, that I embossed with copper embossing powder, inked with Ranger distress ink, sprinkled on some water and added green leaves using a small leaf punch, added some words and a word banner.  Love the way it came out. Check out the post on Splitcoaststampers.com and on Flickr, too.  Don’t you love it?!Image

A Trio of Flowers!

I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and landscape arrangements at the Providence Flower show on Friday. So nice to see flowers in bloom, ponds and flowering trees. I created a card using a newly purchased Hero Arts flower stamp, embossed stamped background and a die cut vine tendril.  Think warm sunshine!Image

Sunny Yellow Flowers

Time to think sunny yellow!  I created this card last year and wanted to share it as yellow is a great color during the gray February days and snow on the ground. I used an embossed background stamp, cut out frame and two die cut flowers from Memory Box. I was inspired by a post on Pinterest and made some changes-of course.  Use my card to get you started! Happy stamping!


Happy Daisy Hello Card

This is an easy card as I used the Hero Arts daisy stamp which I have had for a long time.  I think I even got it on sale some place a long time ago.  I colored the stamp with brush tipped markers and stamped it on a piece of lined loose leaf paper.Image I printed the hello banner on the computer and cut it to size. I also colored the sides of the paper with Ranger Ink in a blue/gray color, tied a simple cord on the top and it is ready to send to a friend.
