Hero Arts Silhouette Flower in Yellow

Supplies:  Stamp by Hero Arts "Silhouette Flower" and Northwoods "Happy Mother's Day", Cardstock is Neenah White and SU Daffodil Delight, Ink is VersaMark with SU White embossing powder, Ribbon by American Crafts Premium, Button is Basicgrey, embroidery floss, glue dot, adhesive, Hero Arts clear Gems, Liquid Pearls in White Opal

Here is a quick card I made tonight.  I went to Archiver's yesterday and bought this new Hero Arts stamp.  I thought it would look cute in yellow, since the flowers were daisy-like.  There is no coloring - so this card is easy.  Just stamp the image in versamark and white embossing powder.  I put liquid pearls in the center of each flower to add a little dimension.  I need to think of other uses for this stamp.  I haven't had time to search other blogs to see how other people have used this.  I may try watercolor next time.  I hope everyone out there enjoys the last two days of March!

Jeri's Make and Takes (Dec, Jan, and Feb)

These are the cards I made at Jeri's Make and Takes.  December, January, and February are shown.  I missed the March one - darn it!  She prepared and designed (or cased) all these cards for us - and all we had to do was put them together!  I love Make and Takes!  Her blog is http://coloringourworld.blogspot.com

Eat Chocolate in Rose Red and Baja Blue

Here is the card I made for my March swaps.  The girls will get them soon.  Sorry they are so late!  I was sick 2 weeks ago, and then I went on a Spring Break vaca - so I'm very behind!  The card looks a little different in person.  In person, it is a muted rose pink and muted blue.  I know the photo looks very reddish - but it isn't.  This cosmo glitter is so pretty in person, too!!!  I hope the girls enjoy their cards.

This is a case from Margaret Raburn.  I saw her candy cover on Fun Stampin with Margaret (the name of her blog) and I loved it and just had to make one - only I turned mine into a card instead of a candy wrapper.  I also added some dark brown, and glitter to the button.

Supplies:  Eat Chocolate and Bliss (background) Stamp Set (Stampin Up), Early Espresso, Crumb Cake Cardstock, Rose Red and Early Espresso Ink, Rose Red Cosmo Glitter (SU), Baja Blue Ribbon (SU), linen thread, Embosslits Sweet Buttons, Decorative Label Punch, Glue Dot, Crystal Effects (to adhere glitter), adhesive

February Swap

The above cards are from the February card swap I belong to.  I didn't make any of the cards, but thought I'd show them off.  Aren't they gorgeous?  In case you don't know what a swap is, I made 6 cards, and then traded them for these 6 cards.  I should be getting the March swap cards soon - when I do, I'll take photos of those as well.  I am not sure who made which card.  I'm sure the black one is Jeri's and I think the one with thread is Tina's.  Other than that...I just don't know!  Enjoy the cards!
