{Stamp Simply} Everyday Dress

Today's Stamp Simply card features the coordinating "Anna Marie" paper and "Everyday Dress" stamp set by  Prima.  I stamped the dress in Versafine Black on Ranger Watercolor paper and then used my Distress Markers and a small paintbrush of water to add some color. The sentiment is from the JustRite set "Hugs and Kisses".  I stamped it on a Scalloped Oval diecut that I had sponged with ink before removing from the die.  After assembling all of my layers, I adhered them to the card base, and added some twill and a single hot pink rhinestone as embellishments.  Quick and easy!!

Here's today's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store shopping list:

{Our Daily Bread} Birthday Pansies

Good morning!  Would you like a cup of tea?  I'm so enjoying my time as a guest designer for Our Daily Bread this month, and today I have a tea and flower themed birthday card to share.

I used my distress markers to watercolor the sweet pansy-filled teacup from the Our Daily Bread Designs Birthday Blessings set for today's card.  I added a strip of paper from the Heart and Soul Collection across the bottom to hold my greeting, then camouflaged the seam with some pink seam binding.  The black mat makes the picture stand out a little more and the rhinestones draw your eye from the buds in the saucer to the flowers themselves and then up to the corner of the card.  A simple touch to complete the look!

Have a blessed day!

{Deedee's Digi's} Monthly Challenge

Hi everyone!

My card today is for Deedee's Digis' monthly challenge.  If you make a card with this month's featured set, you get next month's set FREE!  Can't beat that, can you??

I kept my card super simple.  I colored the owl pair with copics and cut them out with my Stitched Circle dies (mft) and made the mat with Large Circle Nestibilities.  The paper is Kaisercraft Summer Breeze from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and the little tag was cut with the Framed Up 2 Cut Ups (tcp).

Thanks for stopping by!

{ODBDSLC197} The Strength of my Heart

Hello friends!

I just got back from vacation, but I really wanted to play along with this week's ODBD Shining the Light Challenge to use Rain or Water or the color Aqua, so I squeezed in some time to play.

For my aqua card, I paired this beautiful verse from ODBD's Psalm 73 with the Violet stamp, and they go together so sweetly!  After I colored my violets with copics, I cut the violets and some leaves out of the main image and stacked them a little differently to make a cluster on the edge of my diecut verse.  I used the largest Antique Labels die for the verse and then cut around it with my scissors to make the larger kraft mat.  Then I layered it over my "signature" dotted ribbon and finished off my card base with some Kaisercraft Spring Bloom paper and Latte Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by!

{Stamp Simply} Thank You

Good morning, friends!

I have a card in calm and soothing colors this morning, after my bright and cheery one from yesterday.  The pretty paper is from the Hello Pastel pad and this piece has such lovely muted colors to work with!  I cut a flower from a couple of different patterns using the Blooms Three dies, and then added a Sprig below and a pink rhinestone on top to finish it off.  I stamped my sentiment (from JustRite Seeds of Summer) on a strip of white cardstock that I separated from the patterned paper by a strip of 1/8" velvet ribbon that I attached with ScorTape.

Thank you so much for dropping by today!  Here are the Stamp Simply products I used on my card today...
