Bright and Bold Dragonfly Dreams

I love the way this card turned out.  I tried a new technique using reinkers on a clear block and smearing the ink on the white cardstock piece.  I used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Sweet Sugarplum reinkers.

Paint Chip Inspiration #45: Fluttering Butterflies

Today's Paint Chip Inspiration was made using the Bold Butterfly Framelit Dies.  I tried to position the framelit where the center of the butterfly would be on the white space between the paint chip colors.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not Delightful Daisy

I first saw this card on Pinterest and I had to case it.  I love the simplicity of the daisy flower.  I used the Daisy punch to punch out the daisies in white cardstock, the center of the daisy is Early Espresso cardstock.  The leaves are stamped with Old Olive ink.

I originally saw this card idea on Pinterest posted by Lisa Curcio and had to try it.

Recycled Thank You Card

I recently received this pretty thank you card... I love the design of the paper and the script thank you greeting.  I liked it so much I decided to recycle this card.

original Thank You card
I cut the front of the card and layered the cut piece onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I added the 1/8" Silver Ribbon to dress up the card.

Father's Day Treat - Men's Shirt

I love the way this little treat came out.  I wanted to make a Father's Day treat so I thought it would look great as a men's shirt.  The dimensions and instructions are below.

I cut a pieces of Delightful Dijon cardstock 6 1/2" x 3".  I scored at 1 3/4", 3", 4 3/4", and 6".  Wrap the cardstock around the York Peppermint Patties... holds 3 patties.

To make the faux men's shirt, I cut the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper 1 3/4" x 3".
