More Cards Today!

I have been working on cards this week. Here are a few of the sets I made. The first set is using Bold Butterfly. This is one of my favorite Stampin Up! sets. I used Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery. The words are from different stamp sets. I orgainze my stamps by keeping all the words/expressions together so I can make cards for every occasion in each set. I did use a small flower from my Little Lady set. I added larger eyelets and sheer lavender dotted ribbon from Hobby Lobby (on sale, of course). I lined the back of the inside of the card with white because the cardstock was either dark or textured.

The next card is using Polka-dot Posies set by Stampin' Up. I love dots. This green paper is by Creative Memories and comes in orange and purple, too. The solid paper is also Creative Memories. Ink is by Colorbox. I added some orange dotted ribbon and also lined the inside in white. I love this stamp set so I would love to see your ideas for more cards posted below.

This next card is made with the Defintiely Decorative Daisy set by SU! By this time you may have figured out that I like to make larger cards as well as use larger stamps. Paper is Creative Memories. I added some pink and white ribbon to the pink card and orange to the other two color variations. I also used small brads or eyelets.

My last card is one of my first attempts at using Watercolor Pencils. My son Daniel bought me a set for Mother's Day. I used a Butterfly stamp by Stampendous. It reminds me of frilly nylon nightgowns I had when I was young :-) I added some swirls by Autumn Leaves and the word stamps are SU! Paper is Creative Memories. I have wasted a lot of white paper learning to line up the stamps but I am getting better at it. Don't give up if you are new to stamping, it will finally come together!
