Just a quick one today, This is a Magnolia Tilda stamp, I sent this card to my BFF's daughter who loves kitties. She is not a little girl, all grown up so I hope she doesn't mind the little girl on the card! It's just cute :) The paper is Stampin Up's Ice Cream Parlor, I used a Spellbinders die for the main image and then I traced the outer edge of it on the pink paper to cut out and make a mat for it. The dies are too far apart in size otherwise. Then I used various punches for the flowers and the sentiment. Have a great day!

This is that Hero Arts stamp that I bought from Archiver's - the card technique class I mentioned in a post a while back. I did the same technique but this time used mostly red (fired brick distress ink). I embossed the stamp with white e.p., colored in the flowers and then stamped the french script stamp over top with vintage photo distress ink. I also stamped the same red paper with a floral stamp and punched out the bird. The script idea with this stamp came from another card I saw :) I made this for my sister's birthday - I always make cards in blue for her since she likes the color and it's my favorite color but I thought I would switch it up this time and do something different for her. I just love this stamp! Thanks for looking :)

Isn't this a perfect St. Patrick's Day card?! The heart punch I have is well actually a die for my Cuttlebug but anyway it is an uneven shaped heart, not the perfect symmetrical heart shape so I put the shamrock on an angle and I think it works quite well. I looked up shamrocks and they are not 4 leaf clovers! Different things, a shamrock has 3 leaves not to be mistaken with a "good luck" four leaf clover. They have been getting blended together over time I think because you see a lot of 4 leaf clovers for St. Patrick's Day. So anyway I am not sure it really matters but I needed to know what to do to make this card :) I used my new lattice border punch and a nice Cuttlebug embossing folder that seemed sort of "Irish" looking and am real happy with the results. Inside is the sentiment "Happy St. Patrick's Day". Hope this gives you an idea for yourself!
