sunday stamps-hello there


hello and welcome to the sunday stamps challenge, we have an amazing color combo to share with you. These are my colors for sure, luv the greens and blues. I have used the freshly made sketch for today's card. The flower is from prima and I luv it...it is multi layered and you can create a sweet flower with the layers. It is called bayou flower, I added a little stickles to the center; a super simple but sweet card. I cannot wait to see what you create with the colors this week!

words with meaning - attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

I am super excited about today's simon says stamp project, I have created a cute little gift bag to hold the adorable thank you cards I created a few weeks back. Do you remember them here, I am totally luvin the lawn fawn notecards...sweeeeet! These are a small gift for a friend, I created a felt flower using the simon die plush bloom, I only used the two smaller sections for the flower. I then attached it to the layered watercolor paper and added a cute sentiment, clothespin, and the enamel dots. A super quick and easy giftie...have fun!

I have used the layering prima stamp set called bayou, the flowers are really pretty! I have stamped all three pieces of one of the flowers and the darlin leaves. I have used tim holtz distress inks. I framed it with a square frame using pretty pink posh scalloped square dies...these dies are so fun! I used foam adhesive to pop the flowers up a bit, a super simple card but pretty! 

words with meaning - respect is earned. honesty is appreciated. trust is gained. loyalty is returned.
