Flower Patch and Fabulous Four

This card is really pretty.  I love the beautiful samples floating around using the Flower Patch stamp set and Flower Fair framelits!!  Pretty colors!  Even though this card has a lot of white space and is straight forward to make, it is a little bit time consuming.  There's a lot of stamping.  I do try to be efficient with the die cutting and send several framelits through the Big Shot at once.

Some people at my Card Buffet workshops tend to struggle getting good stamped images with the largest flower.  I really don't.  I recommend being careful and patient when inking, using a foam mat under your card stock when stamping, and watching through the block and stamp as you press it down to actually see the ink transfer to the card stock.

For the bling, I colored rhinestones with an orange Bic permanent  marker.

Bootiful Occasions || Kick up yer Heels!

This card was offered on my Card Buffet in May and June.  My daughter and I both love it so I cut lots of kits in hopes of having leftovers to make for us.  

In the Bootiful Occasions stamp set, each boot image came with a sentiment on the same stamp.  I cut most of the apart to add versatility and ease of stamping with more than one color.

Kinda Eclectic

One of the bummers about sharing cards is the photography.   This card is so much prettier in real life.  It is simple and clean but not plain.  I love it!  I also like having a few cards that don't need a sentiment.

The dsp is old; I think its Sweet Pea.

July 4th Work of Art

Great stamps, framelits and a punch made this an easy card.  The only thing that was time-consuming was cutting little pieces of dimensional to put behind the stars.

Flower Shop Bouquet

I started this card for Mother's Day but got distracted and didn't finish it in time.  So now it's just in my stash for an "any occasion" card.  It's really cute and cheerful.
