Climbing Orchids and Jar of Love

My card today is the card I made for my Mother’s birthday. I used the beautiful Climbing Orchids stamp set, with the branch from Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the jar stamp from “Jar of Love”. The orchids were stamped with Melon Mambo ink and then colored with the Aquapainter. I really like the watercolor effect!

Colorful season wedding card

Today’s card is a beautiful wedding card I made for my cousin’s wedding. I used the new framelits Seasonal layers (matching the Colorful Season stamp set) to cut the flowers and branch. To add a little bit of pink to my flowers, I added a touch of pink with the watercolor pencils and used the blender pen to soften it. The birds were cut with the Bird builder punch (now retired). For the background, I used the Hardwood background stamp, with White craft ink on Crumb cake card stock.

Finally the greeting is from Essence de Rose stamp set and I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the stitched oval.

Lift me up… to retirement!

The Lift me up beautiful stamp set and matching Thinlits is the perfect set for masculine cards but also for anybody going on a trip, new adventures or retirement! I made this card for a co-worker who just retired. My favorite part in this set is certainly this beautiful hot air balloon! I used Night of Navy card stock for the outer, with Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight in the background. I used the sponge dauber to add some Night of Navy ink on the outside to add more depth to my hot air balloon. This bundle also has beautiful clouds framelits! I also sponged the clouds’ borders with Pool Party ink and used dimensionals to raise a few up, to add dimension to the card.

The background is made with a designer series paper from the last Occasion catalogue called Cupcake and Carousel.

Greetings is from the stamp set called “Fleurs de l’âge”. (Wild about flowers)
