Take Good Care!

Here are two examples of the same layout. On both, I used the argyle Cuttlebug folder and each one has "take good care" stamped and layered several times with dp. The light blue card has a ribbon at the bottom (Michael's) and a layered paper flower to accent it. The deeper blue card has Doodlebug paper frills at the bottom and accents are a butterfly and flower by Sandylion Essentials. Simple, but cheerful and springlike, I think.

Bee Happy

Using the flower Cuttlebug folder, I imprinted bright orange cardstock, then embossed in blue the "Bee happy" stamp from Stampendous! The bee in the flower pot is inked in black and embossed, then colored in with brush markers. Both stamps were then backgrounded with two types of plaid designer paper, a yellow ribbon (Michael's) is behind them. To finish, I layered three paper flowers and used a light blue brad to secure them.

Spring Posies

I was inspired by my flowerpot punch to create some pots of spring flowers. The striped dp over pale blue cs is enhanced with the three pots of flowers, stems and leaves colored in, and a Michael's flowerpot ribbon. The floral "LOVE" message just adds a little pop! Spring is coming!

Spring Bird

I used a dark green cs and layered it with light green, dotted dp, with the Fiskars scalloped daisy border punch. The Inkadinkado bird image was embossed with verdigris embossing powder on another green cs, cut out with scalloped scissors, and layered over dark green and pale pink cs. I added two tones of ribbon as a bow. Enjoy!

Paisley Butterfly

I used my paisley CB folder to background the embossed paisley butterfly stamp. The message stamp is borrowed and I think its message is a great and soothing reminder to us. The card is simple with just some little embellishments. Have a good day!

I used black ink and embossed the footprints saying stamp by Inkadinkado, onto white cardstock, then backgrounded it on dp, placing it all on the left side of a blue card. The footorints stamp by All Night Media was inked beside the message. I used brush markers to color in the message stamp.

Flower Friends

I used pale blue cardstock from one of the crafter stores, inked with a trio of flowers in purple Colorbox pigment ink for background. Then I inked the large flower twice and the little flowers and leaves, cut them all out and double-stick taped them on the card, accenting the flower centers with gemstones. I added the message, backed on soft green cardstock.
