New Cards...(Finally)




I made a couple of cards...yay!! The first one is for a friend who is going through a rough time right now. I used my new hostess set, Garden Silhouettes. The flowers were stamped with Mellow Moss, and highlighted with my Signo White Gel Pen. I roughed up the edges of the Moss piece with my Cutter Kit.

My second card uses the Hero Arts Decorative Birds, and Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl Sofie designer paper. The large flower eyelet is retired from SU, and I used an A Muse mini dot twinkle sticker for the center (from Ellen's store). The ribbon is May Arts from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.

Thanks for checking out my blog today!

Wow and wow! I love them both! I think that may be my favorite of the Garden Silhouettes stamps--gorgeous card! The second card is a perfect use of the designer paper. Love the way you utilized the big pattern for your background. Very creative! You're an amazing stamper!

I just love these cards! I'm such a fan of River Rock and have a Hero Arts stamp similar to the dill weed SU stamp, so I will definitely try that combo of colors. Thanks for sharing!
