More Encourager Cards

For this first card I used a CTMH Hydrangea stamp. SU has a set almost like this so you could use that instead if you have it. This little 2-step stamp comes in handy for backgrounds and filling white space. I think the yellow dot is Memory Makers paper. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

This next card is my favorite. I cased it from a Christmas card in red and white. I would have made it the same color but I could not find red and white floral paper. This patterned paper is Anna Griffin. You can hardly see it but I stamped the purple paper which is Creative Memories with Autumn Leaves Swirls stamps. The SU set I used is Gentler Times. I antiqued the edge of the large floral stamp and used a Paper Salon "friends" stamp. These are rubber but backed for an acrylic block.

For the next card I used SU Polka Dot Posies. This was a stamp set which I searched for quite a while. The green polka dots paper and orange cardstock is from Creative Memories.

For the last card I bought this stamp set just to use with this ribbon. I bought the ribbon for a dollar at Michael's but the fruit stamp set cost about $10 with shipping from Clear Dollar Stamps. The flower stamp is a Paper Trey stamp. The funny thing was that the ribbon only had 3-4 feet so I already used it all. Sometimes that $1 ribbon is not such a deal :-)

Your cards are great!

I think I heard your hubby say at church he wants you to take over the dining room and make it look like a scrapbook store (complete with shelving from Recollections)...
