Cindy Schuster's Artisan Blog Hop post, here. I changed it up a bit to use at a class where I didn't want to bring my heat gun, but the design is pretty much the same.
I started by stamping the outline flower randomly on Velum Cardstock. I adhered it to the Calypso Coral card base only in the area under where I knew the white panel would cover any adhesive marks. I used bits of doily and some glimmer paper for some fancy trim. I also cut out a separate flower stamped onto Whisper White paper in gold ink for a little embellishment with a tiny punched flower, a pearl, and some seam binding ribbon.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out my link to the Artisan Blog Hop at the top of this post. They all have some amazing products.

But this is so fun! I highly recommend to my stampy friends to get out their ink pads and aqua painters and play around, its like therapy! But cheaper! I had coffee, music, and a table fun off ink pads! I used Smokey Slate, Soft Sky, Rose Red, Always Artichoke and So Saffron on this one.
here, but it was still fun and I am glad that I did it.
I used Strawberry Slush, Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Old Olive and River Rock.
So, are you a pinner? If so, go do one of the things you pinned! It will make all the time spend on the site feel more worth while, and you will have some fun!

both cards start out by using the aqua painters to make the background. I used Soft Sky and Crumb Cake on both, with the addition of Lost Lagoon on the card with the grasses.
The Happy Father's Day stamp is from the Crazy About You stamp set. This is going to become a most used set I can tell. It has just about everything a card maker needs as far as sentiments go. I have the Teeny Tiny Wishes for this as well, but its nice to have another option and I like the size of these. It's a pricer set, but you get a lot. There is also a thinlit set that goes with it that you can get as a bundle.
This set has lots of words, and they are separated so you need to sort of build your sentiment. Here I used the Happy and the Father's Day. I think that using a lined scrap paper before stamping is essential. I use the Stampin' Up! grid paper as my work surface, it is perfect for this. You can make sure your words are lined up perfectly.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

His head is just a Top Note die folded in half. Add two eyes made from the small oval punch and half inch circle punch. Some White gel pen makes his eyes twinkle. The beak is just a square folded in half. The wings are a scallop circle punch cut in half. So Simple!!
This next card uses a new Easter set called Happy Easter Bunny. That bunny sure does look happy :) I used all the colors from the soon to be retiring In-colors 2013-2015 marker set. The card is made from the three largest ovals in the Ovals framelits die.
My sister-in-law's birthday is groundhogs day and I keep forgetting to give her a card and I will see her on Easter so I whipped this one up fast. I didn't have a groundhog stamp, so I had to draw it myself but I think she turned out really cute. I put a festive hat on her head and typed out my greeting. I kept it simple, and inside will be my note and a gift card.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a blessed Easter!
