Mad for Flowers

I've been on vacation for just over a week, and have been itching to create. I previously made a card similar to this one, but have since sent it to a special someone. Therefore, I wanted to have something similar available. Since it does take a bit of time (due to heat embossing on the vellum jar and cutting flowers and leaves), I like to have a spare, just in case.
Supplies: Stamps - A Round Array, Mosaic Madness, Papaya Collage, Perfectly Preserved; Paper - Pistachio Pudding, Vellum, Whisper White; Ink - Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Gumball Green, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Strawberry Slush, Summer Starfruit; Accessories - Clear Embossing Powder, Scallop Trim Punch

Perfect Harvest

I've had this stamp set for a while now, but I've mostly used just the mason jar stamp as a flower vase. After all, that was the main reason I bought it. Today I decided I needed to branch out a bit, so I created this card. It was fun creating a card that is not my usual design style. I hope you enjoy it.
Supplies: Stamps - Perfectly Preserved; Paper - Island Indigo, Very Vanilla, Orchard Harvest DSP; Ink - Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, More Mustard, Raspberry Ripple; Framelits - Cannery Set; Ribbon - Lucky Limeade Organdy (ret.); Embossing Powder - Clear

My great niece will be celebrating her 1st birthday this weekend, so I wanted to make her a birthday card. This is the first time I played with the Sizzlits Pinwheels and I was a little concerned at first by the size and location of the holes in each of the corners. I was afraid the brad would tear the hole too much and ruin the pinwheel. This was not a problem. I used the 3/16" brads (there is a smaller size) and it worked just fine - no do-overs!
Supplies: Stamps - Perfectly Preserved, Pretty Petites (SAB); Paper - Brights DSP, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi; Ink - Basic Black, Melon Mambo; Punch - Petite Curly Label (SAB); Sizzlit - Pinwheel; Ribbon - Melon Mambo Scallop Dots, Hemp Twine (ret.); Brads - Metallic 3/16"

Jars of Flowers

I needed a couple of Thank You cards and decided to use a format I previously used. So, if these seem familiar, they probably are. I changed up the colors and made other adjustments, and am pretty-happy with the results.

Supplies: Stamps - Field Flowers and Perfectly Preserved; Paper - Calypso Coral and Island Indigo, and Always Artichoke and More Mustard; Ink - the "water" in both jars is Pool Party, the blue flowers are Island Indigo over Bashful Blue, the yellow flowers are More Mustard  over So Saffron, the stems on both in Always Artichoke and the Thank You tags are Calypso Coral and More Mustard; Embossing Folder - Fancy Fan; Ribbon - Calypso Coral Everyday Enchantment Organdy (ret.) and Ruffled Ribbon, and Always Artichoke Seam Binding.
