Masking card

This is a card that I made using a masking type tape. It is a tape that is somewhat sticky but you can use it over and over. So I took a piece of the tape and tore it in half. I then placed one piece at the top and another piece half way down the card. I picked 3 different colors and inked in between the masking tape blending the colors slightly as they meet. 

I then took off the tape and stamped the wisps.  I then stamped the flower and the saying. The inks and stamps are Close to my Heart.

Rose Spellbinder card

Here is another card made from Spellbinder dies. Spellbinders dies are so versatile. Just cut them out and layer them and they make a beautiful card. 

For this card I used a rose colored card stock and inked the edges of the large frame (which is the first layer) I then inked the rest of the cut out dies with a coordinating ink. (Close to My Heart). I used pop dots to raise the center and added some dew drops. To finish it off I added an organza bow.

You are my Sunshine

Have I told you that I love flowers? This was such an easy card. First I picked 3 different shades of yellow. I then tore them in half and adhered them to the card from dark to light.  

Then I cut out 2 flowers with a Spellbinder die. I folded the flowers in half and glued them to the card. I stamped "You are my sunshine" and the flower stems (from Close to my Heart) To top off the card and add dimension I added a dew drop to each flower.

Real friends

Here is another card I made using scraps of paper I had. I first came across the blue and brown lined paper and then found the patterned paper. I only had a small stripe of the lined paper so I placed that on the bottom with the patterned paper on the top. I then added the flower in the center.
It did take me a few minutes to find the sticker that ties it all together. You could also used a coordinating piece of ribbon to bring the bottom and top together.

Under the weather

I made this card using scraps of left over paper. I know everyone's scrap paper container can get overwhelming at times. Every so often I will challenge myself to make some cards just using my scraps. 
I start by picking out a patterned paper and find one or two coordinating papers. I used a Darice embossing folder for the pink paper to add texture. I then stamped and colored the umbrella in coordinating colors.

Delight card

I just love the elegance of this card!. I first inked the edges with a light blue and light brown ink. I used a shiny foil type paper and used a Spellbinder die. This is actually 2 different dies that are placed together.

I then used another Spellbinders die to make the flowers. I inked them in blue and placed a brad in the center. The Delight stamp is from Close to My Heart.
