Relaxing Pineapple Retirement Card

I was inspired by a card that Erica Cerwin made using a different stamp set. She taught via video how to get this beautiful watercolor background for any card. I tried it and it really was as easy as she showed on her video.

The background was painted with and Aqua Painter and some ink on Water Color paper. This beautiful, shiny pineapple was cut from retired foil card stock after being clear-embossed. This card will be a nice retirement card for my sister-in-law.

Thanks for looking today - please leave me a comment! I love to read them all.

Mango Melody Peonies

Sentiment is from Many Mates. Dies on front are from Stitched So Sweetly.

After having a creative block for awhile, I started this card just by stamping the image using Memento Black Ink and then choosing the color: Mango Melody. It's a color I love, but one I do not use a lot. I knew I had some retired designer series paper in this color, so I quickly colored my blooms using the Stampin' Write Marker. I didn't do a lot of shading and then I cut my blooms out using the Peonies Dies.

I don't usually decorate the inside of cards, but I felt the front was kind of heavy in layers, so a piece of Whisper White card stock inside helps to balance that out. I used the smallest peony image and colored it like the front.

Thank you for looking today! I hope you will leave a comment so I know you were here.

World of Good Birthday Card

When you need a card in a hurry, there is nothing like having World of Good Memories and More Pack on hand to add to the beautiful Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Cards and Envelopes!

All I did was add a frame to one of the cards and then my sentiment and die cuts to say 'Happy Birthday.' The matching envelope really makes this project special, too! The extra sized card will give me plenty of room to write out my sentiment to the recipient.

Forever Blossoms Birthday Note Card

Using a previous layout and the same floral stem from Forever Blossoms, I made a birthday card (Note Card Size) using the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set. My sentiment was die cut using the Stitched Nested Dies. 

Also new on this card is the fabulous sheer Whisper White ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack. It has a heavenly feel to it and is easily tied in a bow or knot, but here I just let it drape down the card behind the blooms.

I thank you of stopping by to check out my card today. Please feel welcome to shop my Online Store. Let me know if you have any questions!
