Just Believe in Blushing Bride

I needed just the right amount of blush!  As in Blushing Bride In Color!  This card uses more of the prizes I won in the VC Rocks! contest this summer: 
In Color cardstock, DSP, and ribbon.

Just Believe Stamp Set

Hmm... I forgot which stamp I used for the Thanks sentiment.

This close up shows how I colored on the stamp.  I used Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride markers.  I then added a little of Regal Rose marker around the outside of the flowers.  I think this helps it to stand out more.
I hope you have a wonderful day!

French Foliage Love

I'm lovin' it!  French Foliage stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog is so pretty.  And I am not a leafy kind of person.  I love to make the collage background with this stamp set.  

Peach Parfait! Yum!  I am so glad I won a VC Rocks! contest this summer.  The prize I received was several items in the new In Colors:  DSP, cardstock, and ribbons in all 5 colors!! Wow! And now I will definitely be buying these ribbons.

The heart and word love are rub-ons that are retired.  I tried punching out words to put over my "splatter circle," but I just wanted to see all those splatters.  Stampin' Up rub-ons are perfect for this.
I hope you like my creations.  Have a great day!

Christmas Postcard Challenge

I have challenged myself greatly with the Christmas Postcard stamp and the Deck the Halls DSP.  It's not really my style, but it is nice vintage Christmas, so I took the leap.  My coloring wasn't so great, so I decided to stamp it on the DSP and I really like the way it looks.  I am also seeing that crafters have embossed with this stamp, so I will try that next.

Have a blessed day!

Cards for our Military Men & Women

I've been busy making cards for our military men & women.  I love doing it!  Here are a few samples I sent to Operation Write Home and From Our Hearts.


 It is so much fun and I use up so many left over pieces of Designer Series Papers, Simply Scrappin' Kits and retired embellishments.
But the best thing is thinking about a loved one receiving a card from some remote place and treasuring it.  I pray for those in our military and send prayers/blessings with each card I make.
