Power Poppy sympathy card

This gorgeous Azalea stamp is from the new Power Poppy stamp company.  Marcella designs the most gorgeous flower stamps around and they are a delight to color.  I used some pretty background paper, spellbinders Elegant ovals to cut out the shape and colored the images with copics.  I edged and lightly sponged tumbled glass distress ink around the oval and image. I added some pretty purple ribbon and a peel off gold saying to finish the card.

Sympathy

I made this card for a friend today.  I used several of the papers from Graphic 45's Secret Garden collection.  The butterfly is from the medium exotic collection from Cheery Lynn.  The pretty flower and leaves are also from Cheery Lynn's rose leaves and Daisy strip.  I added a peel off saying to finish the card.

Marianne Dies and Casing Anja

I received some new Marianne Dies and saw this card or envelope on Anja's blog.  I made mine into a card but I loved her layout.  These new dies are gorgeous but be sure to add some wax paper between them and the card stock for easier removal.  The paper is from Kaiser Craft Violet Crush.  I used the Marianne Anja's gate, umbrella dies with a  Spellbinders corner.  I just added some pearls and a bow to finish this card.

Our Daily Bread Design 6th Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to Our Daily Bread Design.  The challenge this week is to use 6 of something on your card.  This is a rather clean and simple card using 6 different die cuts and the beautiful January Release from ODBD.  I started with a 5x7 card and used the border die from this release and then added some spellbinders dies with the jar and sentiment saying from the release.  The bow is from Cheery Lynn Designs and I added ribbon and a silver pen to edge everything.  Please join ODBD for their anniversary celebration!!

The Shabby Tea Room Spring!

I made this pretty springtime card for the challenge on The Shabby Tea Room.   All the dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I started with a 6x6 card and used the  scalloped French Flair for the shape of the card and then added the French Flair stitch plate for the pale green layer.  The image was a free download and I used an oval to cut it out then backed it with the
Celtic oval frame in pink. I added two blue mini fanciful flourish in right and left and then added some rose leaves with the medium and small roses to finish the card.

Doilies for Cheery Lynn

The challenge on Cheery Lynn is doilies.  This is a 6x6 card and I trimmed a piece of designer paper to fit and edged it in gold.  The doily I used is the Polynesian Sails and I used the center part and cut it in half twice to make the corners. I stamped on a straight oval and edged everything in gold pen and colored the Iris in copic markers.    I added pretty blue exotic butterfly and a bow with lots of pearls for accents.
