April 18th post

I tried to post these pictures yesterday but there was a problem with blogger. So, I am trying again today!
I have been SO busy lately! Doing lots of good things, but not much time for stampin or bloggin. I usually stamp on Tuesday but had the opportunity to help out a good friend so...I stamped today. I also had the plumber coming today...I've waited almost 2 months for that guy so, I was going to be here! I was expecting a huge amount of work and a huge bill to match, wasn't bad at all! I love that! But, I tell ya, plumbers make the money! The labor was more than 4 times the material and he was only here ...just over an hour!

Anyway! I did stamp today! Here are two cards that I came up with. One is a Mother's day card that was inspired by a card Debbie Olsen did a few days ago. She used patterned paper, I used the Roses in Winter to make my own patterned paper. I like this card, I just wish I had a Marvy giga punch for the circle mat! I used a big circle punch for the focal point and just went around it with some pinking shears. I used the SU craft kit paper piercer to punch holes along the big curve and then connected them with a black scrap pen. The French script is stamped in Vanilla onto the burgundy paper for the card base.

The next card is one I made with left over supplies from my group swap. I used the Seeing spots and the cots and posies from the Mini catalog. I inked the flower in marigold morning and then rolled the edges in Cameo Coral. I love how it looks! I may be doing this one for my workshop tomorrow night.

I have a watercolor class this Saturday night so I will be sharing some fun watercolor ideas son!

These are both outstanding cards and totally worth the wait! I'm going to have to case the first one. I'm new to the Roses in Winter set and haven't yet made anything that I LOVE. I know I will after I case you though!
