Flowers of Tomorrow

My Aunt Paula is a teacher. Her school is having a fundraiser this week and she asked if I wanted to make anything to donate to the event. I decided to give in a few scrapbooking layouts, a necklace and a set of cards. Everything was already made in my stash except for the cards. Here’s what I created:


I kept it really simple, but really pretty. I used four stamps to create the centerpiece. The flowers are from a Paper Candy set and the sentiment is from Verve (which I had gotten from Tonya). I think it’s a very sweet card, and it was easy enough to duplicate quickly (while finally getting to watch the season finale of The Vampire Diaries. Holy cow! What an ending!!!).


Here’s a close up so that you can see the different inks, papers and stamps I used a little better. Please click on any photo to see it bigger.

I love how this set turned out. I actually left the stamps on my acrylic block because I’m thinking I may make some more and add them to my Etsy Shop. What do you think?

That’s all I’ve got for now. I’m working on a number of projects that you’ll get to see this week. Until then, have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
