I finally got my act together and made my cards for Darnell's Twofer #3 - which is flowers. I made 2 cards using a floral stamp from a SU! Live Your Dream stamp set.
For the Mother's Day card I started with a pastel pink card base and die-cut the larger oval along with a border using a MS arched lattice punch. The white border was done with a SU! lacy chain punch. The background was stamped randomly with Versamark and the floral stamp, then embossed with white ep, and sponged with Spun Sugar distress ink. The ovals were cut with Gina Marie Designs stitched ovals and the sentiment is from Verve. For the final touch, I added some pink Nuvo drops.
This birthday make began with a Bazzill pastel blue background which I embossed with a WeRMemory Keepers next level Gemstone ef. I grabbed a snippet of green paper lying on my table and punched one side with a MS doily punch. I stamped 3 squares with the floral stamp by coloring it with SU! markers before stamping, then die-cut them with a GMD stitched square die. I matted each square with a snippet of pastel green cardstock and placed them evenly on the green panel. I tied some SU! bashful blue ribbon into a knot and added a SU! white heat-embossed sentiment which I attached with a glue dot under the knot. For the final touch, I added some tiny blue gemstones to the flower centers that I got from Pizzazz Aplenty.
This is what I see when I look out my front door today.........and it's not supposed to stop snowing until around 11 PM. A few vehicles ventured up the road, but you can see that at nearly 3PM we still haven't seen the plow open up our road. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that we don't lose power this time around. They're calling for 1-3" to fall every hour this afternoon and we already have about 6 inches on the ground. Predictions are for accumulations around 1 foot (or more!)
How's that for the first day of spring????
Thanks for stopping by and I hope it's warm where you are!!
