Wishes card...

Here is another card using the Good Friend set that I used yesterday but this time, no bird! I know..., I love the bird but the reason I wanted this set is because I could see it being used in this way as well, making a fun pattern using just the flowers. I love it when a set has pieces in it that make it versatile like that!

I wanted this set to have a soft spring feel and I love how that one flower looks like it could be a dandelion, blowing in the wind. I used only two stamps from that set with two shades of purple and certainly celery to create a soft look. Then I used the wishes stamp from the Heard from the Heart set to complete the feel. I love how simple this card was to make and how soft and pretty it turned out. Can you believe it's the same stamp set as that bright fun card from yesterday? I love how versatile it is!

stamps:Good Friend, Heard from the Heart
ink: Certainly Celery, Almost amethyst, Lavender Lace, Chocolate Chip
paper:Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, Whisper white
other:Certainly Celery, Whisper white

Big bird card!

So, even though I live in Wisconsin and it actually SNOWED this last weekend (boo), I'm being optimistic and ready for spring. Nothing says spring to me like flowers and singing birds and this card has both. I used the large bird from the Good Friend set, (which coordinates with the Cheep Talk set I showed yesterday). I love this bird but he's a little bigger than I realized! He takes up almost the whole card so he was a little challenging to work with, but I love how this turned out. I stamped and cut out the bird and his legs and used dimensionals to attach him to this card. For the background I used a flower from this set and stamped it in baja breeze and kiwi kiss inks, leaving a spot for my sentiment. I stamped the sentiment, "a special note of thanks" from the cheep talk set to finish it off. It makes a great springy thank-you card!

stamps:Cheep Talk, Good Friend
ink:Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, black
paper:Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White
other: dimensionals

Little bird card!

Hello there! Sorry I've been away from my blog for awhile. Life has been busy... but I've got some really cute new stuff to show you!

This is one of my favorite new sets from this catalog. I just love these little birdies and how cute they are on the branch. I love using these images with bright bold colors! For this card I used pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, taken with teal and white card stock. The stamp set is called Cheep Talk and I can see it having so many uses! I used the "you've got a friend in me" sentiment on this one but it also has a "hello" and a "special note of thanks" which makes it really versatile. Plus you can decorate the branch in different ways too. I used the mini flower on this one but the set also includes a larger flower (which I used on the teal strip running across the card), heart and pear. You'll see some more cards using this set soon! I also popped up the one bird with a dimensional and added some pink ribbon. What a perfect spring card to send a friend!!

stamps: Cheep Talk
ink:Tempting turquoise, certainly celery, regal rose, pumpkin pie
paper: Pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, whisper white, taken with teal
other: scallop border punch, rose grosgrain ribbon, dimensional
