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.

Saying good-bye to ”You’ve Got This” stamp set

This stamp set will be retiring at the end of May, so get it before it’s too late!  I used the Aquapainter to color the flower, simply pulling the Blackberry ink from the lines. I like the watercolor effect!  The background is stamped with the Timeless Texture stamp set to create a vintage look.
