Sweet Stamps, NO Designer Paper

Wow no designer paper this week!!!  So I used a cuttlebug for the background and then added a pretty Marianne frame and I left it in the die and sponged some red around it and then edged it in gold leaf.   This beautiful Blossoms image was stamped and colored with copics and I added some gems to the center of the flowers.  The Cheery Lynn flourish leaf strip and daisy strip was used to make the flower and leaves.  Thank you so much for this honor this month. It's been so much fun and the images and dies are so wonderful to work with.

Happy Mother's Day

This is my second week for guest designing for Sweet Stamps.  For this Mother's day card I used the beautiful Rosy Heart Stamp and I cut it out of vellum. Embossed the outline and the roses and colored them with markers. The pretty doily behind the heart is  Cheery Lynn's French Pastry doily and I cut it out of silver metallic paper.  For the bouquet I used Flourish leaf strip, rose leaf strip and the flowers are medium rose strip.   I used a cuttlebug background and cut the sentiment strip and used the Mother's day saying.   Be sure to check in tomorrow for the Mother's Day Challenge and join in the fun.
