A quick post

 I have been so busy with card making and photo taking, that I have neglected my blog. This is a card I made as a group of "Female Birthday" cards for a friend who I custom make cards for every year.
I used the glorious Brushed paper pack along with some Red Shimmer Trim and Canary cardstock. The stamped images are in Cranberry; Pixie; and Canary ink. The flowers are from a retired set and the sentiment is stamped in Black ink, from Joyful Birthday. I added some Red Glitz to the tops of the Cranberry flowers.

All supplies are Close To My Heart.

One last flower card!

Here is the last in my series of "Red" watercolour flower cards.
I have been working on some new watercolour cards and lots and lots of Mother's Day cards. I'm going to add some tea; coffee and donuts to the mix, too!

All supplies are Close To My Heart, except watercolour paper.

Mother's Day is less than a month away!

I have been making lots and lots of Mother's Day cards to sell. This one was part of my 4th watercolour series. I used the same supplies for each card in the series.
This one got its sentiment from Artfully Sent's sentiment stamp set. I used Jumping Geometrics in Cranberry ink on coordinating cardstock. I coloured Gold Sequins and Clear Sparkles with my Shin Han Alcohol Markers. I embossed with Canary Pigment ink on watercolour paper then coloured in the flowers with Cranberry and Canary ink.

Spring Flowers

Our Spring flowers are all in bloom. My daffodils are almost finished blooming. My tulips probably have another week until they are finished. My prairie lilies have their leaf stalks up and the buds are starting to form. I even have figs on my tree right now and all of my Hellebore are blooming like crazy.

In keeping with flowers, here is the first card in my next trio of watercolour flower cards.
I first want to utilize retired papers to create these cards. I stamped the background with an image from Jumping Geometrics in Cranberry ink . I added Ruby Baker's Twine and also some Clear Sparkles and Silver Sequins coloured with my Shin Han alcohol markers.

The flower was stamped with Canary pigment ink, on watercolour paper. I embossed it with clear embossing powder, then used Cranberry and Canary ink to colour it in. 

All supplies are Close To My Heart except watercolour paper.
