Get Well Soup



I certainly hope we are finishing up cold and flu season but at least there are cute cards to send out.  Get Well Soup is a fun large image stamp to use over and over. I stamped the bowl on Carried Away Designer Series paper and then cut it out and glued it over the full image of the bowl.  You can watercolor the bowl too - or any technique you like.  That nice big space gives you lots of options.

Special Reason Bundle with Cupcakes and Carousels Paper Pack





I bring you this cards straight from the Occasions Catalog.  I am obsessed with the paper.  As soon as I got the catalog I loved this card and I began searching for that paper.  Are those microscopic sea creatures?  What are those swirly twirly things? I finally found it - Cupcakes and Carousels!  This is not what I think of when I think of circus tents.  There are several papers that I am loving in this paper pack.  This Occasions Catalog is truly outstanding. I am on my 3rd pack!  

The relief in Very Vanilla is cut at 3" x 4" and the sentiment on Peekaboo Peach is 3/4" x 4 1/4".  Comparing mine to the catalog, you could bring up the length by 1/2" and they used twine instead of the thick Calypso Coral twine.

Dragonfly Dreams but with Bees!


Seeing and feeling this multi-layered card in person makes all the difference.  It has texture and movement that doesn't come across quite as well in a photo.  The layering make this a beautiful and substantial card.  

Measurements:  

So Saffron 5 1/4 x 4"
Black 4 1/4 x 3 1/4"
Very Vanilla 4 x 3"
Falling in Love DSP 4 x 2"

*The stamped bees are in Crumb Cake, stamped off twice before they are stamped on the Very Vanilla Card Stock.

Avant Garden Elegance



I have shamelessly cased this card from Lynn at Stamptastic Designs.  It is beautiful, clean, elegant.  I couldn't help myself.  I think it would work well for Mother's Day or a sympathy card as well. Ok for just about anything.  

The Mint Macaroon is cut at 3 1/3" x 3 1/4" and the center white is 3" x 3".
