Yellow Thank You

I made a card to enter the Paper Smooches' June Challenge. I used the colors from the Challenge to paint my flowers. Then I chose blue from the color chart to mat the flower panel and chose a yellow card base for my card. The yellow card base is such a sweet color for the card! Love it!

Mother's Day Roses Too

Following the previous post and using the left over roses, I made a card for my mom. I used pink and purple inks for the roses and used grey as the background color. 

Love the Altenew vintage roses!! Once I started making the roses, I just couldn't stop! And I still have bunch of roses to make more cards. Nice!

Mother's Day Roses

Happy Mother's Day! To celebrate Mother's Day with some dear friends, we had a party together and I made Mother's Day cards for them using Altenew's vintage roses stamp set. I made six cards in total. Each card has the same background but with a different design. For the roses with four layers, I used embossing powder for the forth/top layer. I also added some pearls around the roses. 

It was a great party with my friends. And I hope these cards made my friends a very happy Mother's Day.

Here are the cards in pairs.

Here are the cards one by one.

Purple Thanks

I made a purple flower card inspired by Paper Smooches' inspiration photo for April challenge. This stamp set, Blossoming Buds, is one of my favorite stamp sets from Paper Smooches. I used watercolor to color all the flowers and leaves. I then added a gray wash around the flowers. A few sequins were also added for some sparkles.

Here is a close up.

Rainbow Love

I painted a pretty rainbow background with watercolor and made two cards out of it. The sentiments were first die cut from the rainbow background and white watercolor paper. I then inlaid the white sentiment on the watercolor background and watercolor sentiment on the white background. Sequins with matching colors were also added on both ends to finish up the cards.

This is the card with watercolor background and white sentiment.

This is the card with white background and watercolor sentiment. 

 Two cards side by side.

I like the soft watercolor rainbow background and the pretty sentiments. The cards are good for any occasions and also perfect for Easter!

Spreading Wings Butterflies

I just got a sentiment stamp from Hobby Lobby's clearance. "Until you spread your wings, you have no idea how far you'll fly." What is the perfect stamp to use with the sentiment? Butterfly! Of course!

I ran through all my stamp sets and tried to find the perfect butterfly. This is what I came up with. I used memento dew drop ink pads to ink up the entire butterfly stamp with the lightest color Angle Pink first as a base color, then I dabbed Rose Bud, Lulu Lavendar, Lilac Posies, Sweet Plum on the stamp randomly here and there to make the butterflies all colorful.

Then I suddenly remembered my beloved but recently neglected big butterfly stamp and I had to use it to make another card. The same method was used for this big beauty.


Here is a close up.

Pink Kind Bear

I am sharing an easy to make die cuts only card using the so cute Kind Bear Die from Paper Smooches again. The sentiment was also die cut using pink cardstock to match the pink flower.

Here is a close up. I added some shimmers with Wink of Stella glitter brush on the flower and the sentiment.
