Scrap card!

I made this card using scraps from my craft table.  The Winter Frost DSP is leftover from my Christmas cards.  They were already 1 1/2" wide, so I just had to trim them down to 3 3/4".  I adhered them to a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Island Indigo cardstock.  I tied Coastal Cabana ribbon around that and adhered it to a Coastal Cabana cardbase.
The flower from Secret Garden and the Island Indigo punched flower were already on my craft table.  I added the Smoky Slate scallop circle and a silver button (from the Occasions Mini) tied with Island Indigo bakers twine.
Happy stamping!

Make a Wish watercolor card

This card was inspired by one that Lyssa Zwolanek posted on Facebook.  She has a watercolor drip tutorial on her blog, Song of My Heart Stampers.  I did mine a little bit differently than hers; mine was more coloring and less dripping, LOL. The ink colors I used were Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, and Elegant Eggplant. I colored each band with ink and an aquapainter.  I added water to the paper before adding the ink, and then I squeezed the aquapainter a bit to make the drips.
The cardbase is Daffodil Delight.  I added a layer of Basic Black to make the colors pop then put the watercolor paper on top.
I stamped the sentiment from Perfect Pennants with VersaMark and embossed with black EP.  I cut it out with the Big Shot and Chalk Talk framelits then added a loop of Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon behind it.  The final touch is Candy Dots in the corners.
Happy stamping!

You make me happy!

I made this card for Mama using products from the new Occasions catalog and Saleabration catalog.
The cardbase is Soft Sky, and I embossed hearts on the bottom using the Big Shot and Adorning Accents embossing folder.  I also added Daffodil Delight binding ribbon.
The sun is made with a paper doily that I sponged with Daffodil Delight ink.  I cut the edge with the new fringe scissors.
The sentiment is from a SAB set, See Ya Later.  Mama used to sing You Are My Sunshine to me when I was little, so I thought of her right away when I saw that sentiment!  I colored it with Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Basic Gray markers.  I layered the sentiment on top of a tag made from Sweet Sorbet DSP (from SAB) and cut out with Chalk Talk framelits.
Happy stamping!
