Colorful Flower

I made a spring card using the inspiration from the Altenew April Challenge with the Mega Succulent Stamp Set. These colors are not my usual color combination, but I liked it at the end. It was fun to step out of my comfort zone a bit. Thank you for the inspiration!

Ombre Mother's Day

Mother's day is coming. My friends and I have a moms' gathering early May every year before Mother's Day and I made cards for my friends every year. This year, I plan to make ombre cards for my dear friends.

I cut thin strips of different shads of pink and glued them together on a white cardstock. I then die cut the word happy from the ombre piece I glued together. I dried embossed a piece of a beige card stock as the background and stamped the other half of the sentiment on another pink strip. Two small hearts with foam tapes were added to finish the card.

Here are close ups.

I had fun making this card! OK! One card down! Six or Seven more to go! Hope my friends will be happy when they receive the cards. Happy Mother's Day!!

Lovely Spring Day

Spring is here! We had a lovely afternoon last Saturday. The temperature reached 70 degrees. Then the next day it went back to the 50s. Typical spring...

But we enjoyed last Saturday tremendously. What a lovely day to spend the afternoon in the park. I can't wait for spring to come!

Here is a card I made for the spring day. I used Altenew's Story of Us stamp set for the flowers and leaves with various pink and green inks. The sentiment is from Altenew's Inked Floral stamp set. Pink and green are definitely spring colors.

Thank you for visiting. Have a lovely day!

Here is a close up.

I love Altenew's card blog. I always get so inspired after visiting there. Today is no exception. After I saw this card made by Norine Borys, I just had to try the pen and ink technique.

This is my first attempt with Norine's layout and using the same stamp set. The end result was not as pretty as her cards, but I was still happy and felt like an artist!

I will try this technique again with other solid stamp set.
