I had a few flowers and leaves leftover from my previous card and decided to use the small bud vase in the Altenew Versatile Vases. I decided to place the flower arrangement on a large oval shape for this card. I ran it through the Big Shop with the Stampin’ Up Subtle Embossing Folder, which give a very subtle texture that is lovely. I adhered the fast to the oval with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. As before, I added Ranger Glossy Accents to give the vase a glass look.
It look lovely, but it just felt a little flat, so I decided to add Ranger Gold Stickles to the edges of the oval, this is fairly easy to do since you have the stitched details on the outside edge.
The Altenew Peony Dream 3D Die is a large image and really makes a statement on a card. I decided to use the yellow and orange combination that I used on previous card. It turned out more orange and coral with a hint of yellow, but I think it’s pretty.
I die cut the layers from Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored them with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. When assembling the layers I like to add some dimension between the bottom layers and the top.
To add visual interest I die cut a rectangle using Gina Marie Designs Lotus Blossom, stamped the sentiment at the bottom with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink and adhered it to the card front with Kokuyo Dotliner Long Adhesive. The flower was adhered using liquid glue.

When I saw the name of this cute image from La-La Land Crafts “Shining Star Marci” I knew I wanted to use stars for the card design.
I pulled out my largest star die and die cut it from gold mirror cardstock. I wanted the Marci image to be sitting on a star.
This is a digital stamp and so I printed it using a laser printer so that I would bleed when colored with Copic Markers. The color scheme was determined by the recipient’s favorite colors.Once coloring was complete I used my Silhouette PIXScan Mat to cut around the image.
I pulled out My Favorite Things Written in the Stars and die cut the word from Neena Classic Crest and from Darcie Sticky Back Foam. I used my Copic Markers to give an ombre affect to the “Stars” die cut. For the secondary sentiment I used the Copic Markers to color some leftover cardstock to match and stamped the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detailed White Embossing Powder.
For additional interest on the card I die cut a rectangle from white cardstock with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and then embossed the Memeory Box Starry Night Background Die.
I placed all the elements on the card the way I liked them and adhered them using liquid glue. I felt it needed a little something extra. The Marci image has her hand out as if she is holding something so I die cut a small heart from mirror cardstock and placed it in her add. I also covered the star at the end of her headband with a gold mirror die cut star as well.
This is another cute Charlie Brown Peanuts image found at Coloring 4-Kids. Colored with Copic Markers and cut with the Silhouette Cameo. I used Lawn Fawns Stitched Hillside Borders and Avery Elle Pierced Clouds to create a scene. Love the way it turned out.

I had a couple of panels of cranberry cardstock leftover from making my Christmas cards and wanted to put them to good use. As I was cleaning up and putting things away I saw this pretty black and silver striped paper and decided to use it to make a balloon birthday card. Add My Favorite Things big Wish die for a sentiment and you have a quick and easy card.

I love the quote by President Thomas S. Monson “To live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heaven.” I think it is true. Life is sweeter when we look through the challenges and experiences of our lives with gratitude. What better time of year to count our blessings than in the fall, which is why I used fall leaves for embellishments.
I like it so much that I made it again adding a die cut “Thank You” from Karen Burniston.
I saw this great post on Pinterest ( 473229873344337455 ) and thought I would give it a try for a masculine birthday card. All you need is some balloon dies, a pretty birthday die cut, and a way to add rainbow colors to your cardstock. Love the way it turned out. So bright and colorful.
This is the last card I made with the Frantic Stamper Woven Ribbons Card Panel die. I love the plaid paper in the pattern. I used Copic Markers to make a ombre look to the birthday die cut, paired it with some Lawn Fawn Party Balloons and really liked the way it turned out.

I recently purchased Lawn Fawns’ Stitched Palm Tree Border and thought I would create a beach scene for this cute musical critters from My Favorite Things. I used my VersaMark Pen to add specs of sand to the beach with Hero Arts Sand Embossing Powder.
For this card I used all the leftover flowers I had from the previous cards I had make. The pink and yellow make a cheerful card. I like the jagged edges created from Penny Black’s Antique Frame Rectangle.
