A Wedding Card

Hello! I have a wedding card to share with you. I really love how it turned out. It's non-traditional one might say, and different. I chose some pretty colors that coordinate with the actual colors the bride used in her wedding, gray and orange. (Some of the flowers in the designer paper are orange and gray). I wanted to use bright summer colors, and I wanted to use this beautiful bible verse stamp as the main image.  I used many assorted dies and many different layers.

This inside of this card is simple. I added a cute die cut and stamp to the inside cover of the card that I thought would be cute. Hope you like my creations. Thanks for stopping by. It's gonna be a hot one this week. I think I'll escape to my art room and make some cards!
Stay cool!

A baby shower card...

Made this cute baby shower card for my niece who is having a baby. We don't know the sex, so I made it for either a boy or a girl. Love this Paper Trey Ink stamp set. It's so cute and has so many images and text to match. I watercolored the elephant image. The card is a 5-1/2" x 5-1/2".
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a great summer!

Warm July summer days...

Hello and Happy Fourth of July weekend! Time truly speeds by doesn't it. It is a lovely summer day here in southern Minnesota! Today I have a card to share with you that is bright like a summer day! I made this card for my sister in KY. She always is doing so many sweet things for me, so I wanted to send her a thank you card in return. I really like how this turned out! I used a variety of items on this card from different companies, which make it kinda fun to mix and match things. 

I love to use label dies for sentiments. I think they really make the sentiment stand out. I also use distress ink on every single card or scrapbook page I make. I love the way a project looks finished by using it. My card size  4-1/4" x 5-1/2".
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a safe and happy weekend.
