Huge Flowers

I pulled out this stamp set 
Huge Flowers by MFP
at request of a friend who needed a stamp off
While it was out I decided it might be a good idea to use it myself as well
I stamped off both sizes  colored with copic markers
popped the smaller one over the huge one
The sentiment is also in the set
The southern belle die seemed  the perfect finish
So I thank her for her request

                                  This month on Let's Craft and Create the theme is Beachy OR
                                                              Red White and Blue
                                When you see my card you will never guess what I chose  LOL

                                            I first painted the background in water colors
                                                      on ( wait for it )  water color paper
                          Then with the help of a basket full of Stampscape stamps  my Misti
                                                             and Distress inks
                                                    I had fun creating the scene
                                       Not quite sure what those little pesky insects are
                                                          but it  seemed to   work
                                                                I hope you enjoy it

                                                                  And here it is

                                               Come play

Get Well

This My Bestie was designed for a friend of mine who made a card for me when I broke my leg
I have since bought the stamp

I now have a friend who fractured her pelvic bone and this image is perfect for her
I hopes it brings her as much joy as it does me

LCC 125 Make your background

To make background  I selected this gift wrap tissue

Crinkle it up
Dampen and crumple more
Straighten the paper but not too smooth
Let dry before moving on

Attach paper to card stock
I find a glue stick works well
Paint with Mod Podge
Try not to make the surface too smooth

Once dry cut to size
Make your wonderful card

I am anxious to see what the rest of the team came up with

Unicorn Ch Petal Power

Die cut Cherry Lynn Large Rose Petals

Using 6 layers and the leaf
I assembled the flower with a brad in middle
They are pretty enough but there are no directions and the pck says LARGE
I would  not call these large but  okay I like them

I sprayed the background with liquid spray ink
This looks really soft and nice

So along with the Petal power

I die cut the bike and added aa bit of pedal power
Come see what the other designers came up with

This is my last post for Unicorn Ch
Life is just so full right now 
I have to focus on other things

Unicorn Ch Go Green

This is a true green in real life
The Challenge at Unicorn Ch
My first thought was to do St Patrick
and some how got distracted
I used Color Burst on a sheet of handmade paper
It turned out so beautiful I cut it up
The base of this card is a green card stock
I layered the inside back with one cut and stamped the flowers directly on using the MISTI
I adhered the two pieces on the side panels and die  cut the flowers from more color burst pieces 
The inside panels have sayings 
Hope you will stop by and play

Howling Happy Birthday

Oh dear  most of my stamps have been removed from wood block without keeping the maker and name
That is the case with these wolves
The background is glimmering mist  and I added washi tape on the side
The grasses are die cut and a ribbon adhered to the bottom is the finishing touch
