Happy Easter

This was such a fun card to make.My Lemon Tart ribbon doesn't look very lemony on top of that Spring Moss CS does it. I used Michelle's Spring Scheme for this card. The yellow egg was embossed with the new Picnic Plaid impression plate. The grass was made with a new MS Punch. The pattern on the Lavendar Moon CS was made by stamping BB Tin Types with Versamark Ink. I placed the 3 buttons over the flowers on that particular egg. All three of those buttons have 3 holes instead of 4 - fun. Some yellow floss, glitter and pearls finished it off.

To a Special Couple

This ribbon rose is made from lace trim. After I had it assembled I airbrushed it with Y21 and RV21 to give it a pink vintage look. I made the patterned paper with Papertrey Ink's Background Basics Tin Types and Turning a New leaf. Before stamping the pattern I sponged on Versamagic pigment ink in Wheat. The large leaves are Hero Arts Patterned Medallion Leaf stamp. Sentiment is from the JustRite Wedding set. The sentiment oval is cut from a Spellbinders Labels Ten Die. Cardstock is Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream and Sweet Blush. Pink Pearls are Kaiser.

Mother's Day cards for the troops

I usually donate the challenge cards I have made to OWH but I really wanted to make some pretty Mother's Day cards for the troops. I made 17 of these. Papertrey stamps are Background Basics Text Style, Fancy Flourishes and Butterfly Dreams.
