Take Care

Are you looking for a sweet simple set? Take Care is it! For this card I used very vanilla, tempting turquoise, and early espresso card stock. I used markers on the rubber (chocolate chip and old olive) for the branch. I stamped the nest on a vanilla scrap in soft suede, used a chocolate chip marker to highlight some of the twigs, and colored the leaves with an old olive marker. Then I sponged over the nest lightly with soft suede and cut it out. The eggs are embossed in tempting turquoise so they are shiny. I cut them out of course. The nest is mounted on the branch with a dimensional, the eggs are alos mounted on a dimensional. I sponged around the vanilla edge with olive and tied a piece of linen thread in with the olive ribbon. Blessings is stamped in chocolate chip.

Wouldn't this branch look cute with an owl on it? So many possibilities!

Elements of Style

If you like Melon Mambo this is the card for you! All I did was emboss the flowers from Elements of Style and the words from Blessing From Heaven in white. I added strips from the ribbon punch and some white ribbon. The center is actually a separate piece so I could slip the ribbon ends under it. The little butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die and my Big Shot. I added a small rhinestone for some sparkle. Pretty card!

The wisteria scallop circle is also mounted with dimensionals. The words are from Loving Thoughts. The colors are Whisper white, Wisteria Wonder, and Lucky Limeade.

Blooming With Kindness

This is one of my favorite cards ever! I wish I could get the camera to capture its true brilliance. Pool Party is the perfect color for this flower. I used a set called Blooming With Kindness. First, I covered the stamp with pool party using the pad. Then I took markers in baja breeze, tempting turquoise, and pacific point and scribbled the color on over the pool party ink. The more color you scribble on the prettier the effect. I stamped this on a whisper white scrap then use the new Floral Frames Framelits and my Big Shot to cut out the layers. I stamped an extra middle to cut out which I mounted on a pool party circle that I punched out. I used the Fan Folder embossing folder to add texture to the background and the flowers. Be sure to stamp your saying BEFORE you run the background through the Big Shot. I stamped mine in Pacific point. The bow is Pool Party Ruffled ribbon held on with a glue dot. There is large pearl in the center. This stamp set is wonderful!
