Dimensional Ruffle Card

Operation Write Home had the most amazing card tutorial on their blog a couple of days ago. It was a Dimensional Ruffle Card tutorial I fell in love with it and couldn't wait to try it. Love how the choice of my top layer paper made mine look like an awning over a shop.  Check out this link and see if you are inspired to try.

Wish I could give the company names of all the different papers but I just started pulling papers and didn't write them down.
Punch: Martha Stewart ~  Edge Punch Doily Lace
Flower: PaperTrey Ink ~ Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection
Flower Petals: WPLUS9 ~ Folk Art Floral Dies WP9D-014
Sentiment: Hero Arts ~ Truly Appreciated (I cut just the "hello" portion of the stamp to use)

Have a blessed day ~

Old and New

I don't know how "Clean and Simple"  this is but I am entering this in this weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

I fell in love with the new Hero Arts Tiny Flags stamp and used it with one of my older Hero Arts Flower Corsage. The background is stamped with Hero Arts Mid-Tone Cornflower and Butter Bar. I added that sweet and rather large "HELLO" die from Simon Says stamp. When I cut it out I used white card stock and decided it look too bland so I went over it with a green from my Paintbox Option Pad by ColorBox. I used Lawn Fawn circle dies for the frame around the flowers. Colored the flowers with copics.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by!

Catch Up

I have been away from my blog for several weeks so I am playing "catch up". I took a couple of weeks to prepare about 50 Easter cards. l used several different brands of stamps but basically the same design.
I didn't have a sentiment stamp that I wanted so I printed this one out and used the Simon Says Stamp Tilted Banners on some of them.

We have so enjoyed the sunshine over the last several days here in south Georgia and hope you are experiencing good weather also.

 Hero Arts: K5376 Hydrangea
Cuttlebug Embossing folder

 The Craft's Meow: Potted Garden
I so enjoyed their stamps and sad that they are no longer in business.

Stampendous: Star Lilies P115

I actually got tired of coloring after about 25 cards so I found some stamps that were solid and stamped them with various inks that I have.
 LOVE this Verve Stamp Set: So Fluttery VS-0190
If you have never tried them, take a look at their site:  The Verve Store

Thank you for stopping by and I pray that your Easter was blessed.

I love this card that Lucy Abrams made with the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month March 2014. I think the kit is sold out but the stamp is available here.

So I just had to totally CASE it.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
