Peach Parfait flowers

I haven't posted in a while, so here's a few to look at.

I had these flowers made and the CAS116 was to use 3 of something. I rolled the petals to give them some dimension. You can't really see it in the picture but the ribbon has a pnkish strip running thru the center.

CS: Peach parfait, Groovy guava, pear pizzazz, bashful blue


I always enjoy it when I have the time to pahy tribute to a featured stamper. This week I chose this card for inspiration

Cardstock: Rose red

DP: Springtime Vintage

I got this set in the morning and had an opportunity to ink it up that very afternoon. Unfortunately a friend's father died.

The edges of the scallop circle are sponged with Vintage photo ink.

Oval Tulips

I was inspired by this week's featured stamper, Becky, to do this card. I also was imspired byt this week's free for all to do embodded embossing. I love the way this card turned out.

Cardstock: Real red, So saffron

Ink: CTMH Ponderosa pine, vintage photo distress

Stamps: Whimsical words

Made the tulips with the punched out ovals, sponged all edges with vintage photo distress ink. Cuttlebug Swiss dot embossing folder.

This is Becky's card


I lost my Mojo so I went way back to 2009 Mojo Mondays and picked week #88 to use as inspiration for this card. My demo showed me how to cut the punched out label so it becomes a background layer.

Cardstock: Not quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz

DP: Springtime vintage

Christmas card #8

Here's an idea I stole from my demo this week. She made this card in pink as a birthday card and I thought it would make a great Christmas card. We did a class this week where all the cards were made with punches. This one uses the 1" circle punch. She didn't post hers, so I'll post mine.

Cardstock: Always Artichoke

Ink: Cherry cobbler, circles sponged with Vintage photo distress

Retired Red Riding Hood ribbon, silver stickles, twine.
