Rosette Flowers

Hello to my faithful few! I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! I was playing around with the flowers again and came up with this card. I think the rosette flowers are so pretty, and I seem to see them everywhere so decided to make some myself. I'm still trying to use up those scraps, and this was the perfect card for that, so some of the papers may look familiar to you! I used a couple of M.S. punches for the rosettes, some leftover kraft for the card, and a Sizzix Framelit for the label. The flowers came from my stash as did the banner. I embossed (debossed) the mat, stamped my sentiment and called it done! I am entering this in the following challeges: and

Clean and Simple

Hey Ya'll! Just a quick post with a quick and easy card. I bought this stamp awile ago and just got around to using it. I stamped the typewriter and an extra piece of paper to insert into the typewriter to give it more demension.I then added some vintage seam binding (to mimic typewriter ribbon) and some typewriter keys to that. I left the inside blank so that I could write whatever I wanted when I wanted. Short and sweet. Hope you like and thanks for taking a peek!

Belated Mother's Day

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day, and now that it's over I can post these last two cards. This first one was made for my Mother. I got the idea from the March issue of Cardmaker magazine. I bought this issue because it had so many flower embellishments in it. I used pinking shears on the edges of my mat and did some sewing. The "flowers" were made using Spirelli(string art), and I added buttons to the centers. Added a vintage seam binding bow and stamped a tiny tag. The inside sentiment was computer generated.
Supplies: Cardstock- Stampin' Up, Paper- October Afternoon,Modern Homemaker 8x8 pad, Disk for flowers- Mother's Day Bouquet, Sunburst flower. This second card was made for my Daughter who is forever washing clothes! With a Husband and two boys there are alot of dirty clothes! So, with that in mind , here's a basket full of dirty laundry and clean ones on the line. The sentiments inside and out were computer generated, and the washing machine was an altered stove cut done on my Gypsy. Thanks for looking!

Hello everyone! I have been playing around with this idea for a while. Over at :// there is a challenge for Spectacular Spectacles that I decided to enter. I used Iris Folding for the inside of the glasses. I had forgotten how much fun this is to do, plus you can use your scraps! Win, win! I embossed the card with a Quickutz folder, stamped a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Alterations line, and added bakers twine and a button to finish it off. Hope you enjoy, and thanks for peeking!

Mother's Day Flowers

Hey Ya'll! I thought I would post this card that I made for my Mother-in-Law for Mom's Day. I purchased a Cardmaker magazine last month that had several different flowers in it and I have been making them right and left! These are called Kusudama flowers and are folded Origami. I thought they were very pretty and different, but again they will have to have a special box made to send them in if you were to mail them. Lucky me, I get to hand deliver! I will be entering this in challenge #54- Mother's Day at Thanks for looking!
