Beautiful Promenade of Anniversary Wishes

This card is almost embarrassingly simple.  I stamped the flower from Beautiful Promenade in Calypso Coral and Gray Granite and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz.  I took a watercolor pencil and shaded lightly inside the flowers for some extra color.  Then, I trimmed them out with a scissors (because I was too lazy to run them through my die cut machine!) and attached them to my card base (which was a leftover from a Paper Pumpkin kit) with Snail adhesive and Dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped in Calypso Coral and I tied a little bow with a few strands of linen thread and attached it with a pop dot.  I think it took me longer to type this out than to make the card!

Happy Life

Here's a simple card that uses an unlikely stamp set!

I bought the Tabs for Everything set to use in my Big Plans Planner - but when I saw these sweet elephants, they just screamed to be a baby card.  Only I don't really need a baby card right now.  So how about a "Be Yourself" kind of card??  I think this will be fun to send to my daughter that lives on the other side of the country as a note of encouragement.  Or to one of my school age friends.

I used Pool Party, So Saffron and Whisper White Cardstock; Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Gray Granite Inks; and a bit of linen thread along with the Tabs for Everything set.

Super simple!

Pretty Kitty in Pear Pizzazz

Hello again!

Today I have a super sweet card featuring another kitty in the Pretty Kitty set.  This is such a fun set to color!  (I say that every time I think.  I do love to color!!)  I stamped the kitty in Memento Black ink and colored it with a mixture of Stampin' Blend markers and watercolor pencils.  I did just a tiny bit of blending around the image with a blender pen.  The sentiment is from the A Good Day set and the leaves that I stamped along the side of the card are from Beautiful Promenade.  I love it when my stamps play well together!!

I've been working on my list of goodies that I want to get in my next order.  I saw a set and some samples in our last demonstrator magazine  that really, really caught my eye, but I have so many ideas and a limited budget, so I am going to try to be really, really careful.  I definitely want to save up some money so I can place a preorder from the Holiday catalog in August, so I am determined to stay in my budget.  I just love all the perks I have access to as a demo!!  It was so worth the $99 I spent... especially since I got $125 in product!

Don't forget about my Anniversary Host Code if you are placing an order in the next week!  I'd love to send some happy mail your way!!

Back to my list!!
