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!

Sharing a branch with you

I made this card for my husband’s birthday. He loves birds, so I think it was appropriate! I used the soon-to-be retired Bird Banter stamp set. You can still get it until May 31 only!

The card base is from the Sale-a-bration Tutti-Frutti cards and envelopes pack. I also used the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

I colored the birds with the Stampin’ Blends markers. The birds were stamped directly on my Whisper White paper and I cut the flowers by hands to glue them on top of the branch. I sponged a little Soft Sky ink in the sky to add a little color to the background.

Colorful Seasons: Life is beautiful!

One new stamp set and matching Thinlits that immediately caught my eyes in the new catalogue is called “Colorful Seasons“. It’s such as beautiful set and it’s perfect for all year long! There’s everything you need for every season, from beautiful snowflakes to a nice Adirondack chair!

I’ve made this card thinking of a beautiful and relaxing day on the beach! Don’t you wish you were there?

To do the sky, I used the Color Theory Designer Series paper stack. I like how the blue has a nice color gradient to it! I used the darker side of the paper to do the water. A tear is perfect for this, leaving a nice white line perfect for the waves! For the chair, I used the Wood Textures Designer Series paper stack. The sun is made with the Swirly Bird stamp set.

Here’s the stamp set and thinlits:
