Inspired Trio

I have always really liked the comforter in my bedroom- the colors, the design etc.  I have thought about designing a card inspired by my comforter for awhile and I finally actually did it.  I have 3 similar cards that I would like to share with you today.  Here is a photo (very poor quality) of the comforter:

Here are the cards based on the comforter:

I used my favorite set- Long Stem Silhouettes and the new coordinating die set for this card.

Second card:

This card uses the Precious Poppies set and I made the image sparkle by painting it with Wink of Stella.

Finally the last of the trio:

This last card uses the new Cattails die and the sentiment is from the Spring Tulips set.

Thanks for stopping in and have a fabulous day!

Enjoy and Relax!

Hi everyone!  We are enjoying an absolutely beautiful weekend here in WNY.  The weather is just awesome.  What a treat to share some summer themed cards with you today.  I am not missing my snowman stamps one little bit lol!  My cards today feature the Wish you Were Here stamp set and matching dies from Sweet N Sassy stamps.  This is also available as a bundle which is a great way to save a little money!

I used the super fun Sun card template for my card base.  I sponged the edges and added stickles to define it.  The sand is kraft paper that I tore and sponged the edges.  I used the cloud dies as a stencil to sponge in clouds and used the wave dies for the water.  I really had fun creating this card.  

My second card is a CAS card that I was pretty happy with.  I really like the color combo of pool party, black and white.  The flips flops were stamped on dp and die cut again using the Wish You Were Here stamps and dies and 2 ribbon flags were added to accent.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope that you are able to "relax and enjoy" a bit today!
