Flower Happy

If you are a follower of my blog you know how much I love floral images, so when I saw some fabulous images from Our Daily Bread Designs when I was at the York, PA show last weekend I had to pick some up.

This post is going to be quick as the kids and hubby are all gone and I've got to get some laundry done and in between hoping to get my stamp on.

My first card uses the CAS(E) this sketch and is for Bev's challenge to use lots of sparkle at Hope You Can Cling to Challenge at SCS.  I used my 2way glue pen and applied lots of glitter to my Poppies.

Card details:
Stamps: Crocheted Poppy from Our Daily Bread Designs, Sweet Pea from There She Goes Clear Stamps
Cardstock: Gina K. Luxury White
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, copic
Embellishments: Art Glitter-crystal


My Happy Birthday card uses the die cut that coordinates with the image above.  Can't wait to use them together but since the other one was CAS, I didn't want to add another layer.

I tried my hand at the 10 minute craft dash challenge again, but this time I failed by completing this in 13:29 or somewhere close to that...all I know was I was over the 10 minute mark.  Darn embellishments!

Thanks to my friend Chera for pointing out these gorgeous ornate flowers that I was able to print out on my Silhouette cameo.

Card details:
Stamps: Treasured Words by Verve Stamps
Cardstock: Confetti White,  Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Paint the Town Pink, Authentique-Gathering
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Paint the Town Pink


For my last card I created a pretty simple card using the Violet image from Our Daily Bread Designs as my focal point.  After finishing the card, I'm wishing I would have used a different background color as this is so light it was hard to capture the true color (a very pale purple).

Card details:
Stamps: Violet  from Our Daily Bread Designs, Good Times from Mama Elephant
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, VIP Purple, Gina K. Luxury White
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, copic
Embellishments: Zva Creative Self-Adhesive Embellishment-Pearl White, Viva Pearl Pen-cream, dimensionals
Hope you have a great Saturday-off to change out the laundry!
