Boho Blossoms and Butterflies

Back from my camping trip (one day early). The camp ground had water issues the last couple of days, so we decided it was time to come home. Any way, although I didn't get to create anything while I was camping, I did get to cruise around and check out others' creations. This card is based on one created by Michelle Langefeld of Roses of Pink. Thanks Michelle!

Three More Silhouettes

Here are three more cards using Serene Silhouettes. The "stitching" on the Elegant Eggplant card was created using paper piercing and a black Stampin' Write marker.

Three Silhouettes

These are three cards I made using Serene Silhouettes. I really like using them with a very clean layout, and the rich, regal colors of Bravo Burgundy (ret.), Elegant Eggplant and Not Quite Navy (ret.).

Trees by the Lake

My husband said I needed to make one of my tree cards with a lake in it. After a couple of trials and errors, I created this one. I'm not completely happy with it, so I will probably be posting more designs.

Oh, my, another reason to stamp!

Just For You

This card just sort of fell together. I had the narrow strip already the right width, and I built the card from there. This card was quick and super easy.

Supplies: Stamps - Label Love; Paper - Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Sycamore Street DSP, Very Vanilla; Ink - Rich Razzleberry; Accessories - Vintage Faceted buttons

Fabulous Flowers and Lattice

I saw a card recently created by Stamping & Scrapping with Deb Valder. I really liked her idea of placing the lattice behind the Window Frame cut-out. After putting this one together, my husband decided it would be a great card to give to some friends of ours who are getting married at the end of the month.

I really like the way this card turned out, but it truly was challenging to put together. Because I didn't want the lattice overlap to be visible on the inside of the card, I placed a second sheet of card stock on the inside (attached to the back of the front), which I then die-cut the two pieces at the same time. Then I slid the corners of the lattice piece between the two sheets.
