Another Layered Flower Card

Here is another card I made using a coloring book image found on the web. This one is a bit more subtle then the last one, because I used papers that were more similar in color. I used three different papers from two different digital paper kits that I got for free off the internet. I used the same paper for the flower petals as I did for the backround paper. I used a cream colored paper for the flower face and the pot. I then used a green paper for the stem and leaves. I used foam tape to attach my flower to the matting (made with a piece of black paper and a piece of white paper I put through my sizzix embossing machine with the mosaic cuttlebug folder). I stamped the sentiment with a $1 stamp I got from Joanne's using staz on ink.

I'm entering this card into the Moxie Fab World challenge and over on the Paper, Scissors and Superheroes blog.

Layered Flower Card

Here is a card I made using a free coloring book page I found while googling (sp?). I printed it out on four different papers from a free digital paper set I found on the internet called Tie-Dye Cherry Blossom. I made a gradient fill design in Adobe Photoshop Elements using the dropper tool and taking two samples of color. I used this for the backround paper, the top flower section and the part with the black border (was that as confusing as it sounded?). In case I didn't mention it...I hand cut all the layers (this is probably why my husband mentioned that it seemed to be taking a REALLY long time to cut that out!) then I used scotch foam tape to layer the different layers of the flower. I topped the flower off with a bit of bling using a heat fix gem. I then stamped the sentiment with staz on using a inkadinkadoo stamp. Hope you like it :)

Anniversary 'Card' for my parents

Here is a 'card' for my parent's anniversary. The reason I say 'card' is because it is more like a tag, just not in tag shape. I cut some cardstock down to the size I needed for my stamp. I then backed it with some recycled cardboard. I used the script stamp from the Tim Holtz 'Urban Grunge' set. I stamped in versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then inked over that with broken china and peeled paint distress inks. I cut a '42' out with SCAL and embossed it with the mosaic cuttlebug folder (I think thats what it's called). I used a circle stamp from a $1 set of clear stamps from studio G found at Michael's. I stamped that out 6 times and stamped out H-A-P-P-Y using the Heidi Swapp alphabet stampset (with peeled paint distress ink), then in the 6th circle I stamped 'nd' with an alphabet set from inkadinkadoo (with broken china distress ink). I really like how it turned out (personally :) )

Valentine's Day Card

Here is the card I made for my daughter for Valentine's Day (I know I'm a bit behind). I used a free teddy bear svg from (their free svg's at I used an inkadinkadoo stamp for the lips :)
