You Make Me Smile

Hi there! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!


It rained here Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday, so my plans to work in the flower beds have been delayed. Instead, I did a little stamping! Hmmmm...cleaning flower beds or stamping? Not a tough choice, really! :)

The flower and leaves on this card are from the Hero Arts Big Flowers clear design set. The leaves were stamped on Frosted and Intense Kiwi Prismatics cardstock, then cut out. I enhanced the color on two of the leaves by coloring the edges and dots with a #133 Chartreuse Tombow Marker .


The flower was stamped twice. Once on Classic Red Prismatics , and once on the yellow dotted paper from the Jack & Jill paper collection by My Mind's Eye. Portions of the yellow flower were cut away, then I used the #133 Tombow again to enhance the green loops on the flower. The white dots on the red flower were colored in using my White Opaque Pen from Ranger.

The sentiment is from the JustRite Seeds of Kindness stamp set. I just love having that set to go with all my flower images! It was cut and embossed using Spellbinders Labels Twelve .

The bottom edge and decorative band were cut using Spellbinders Ric Rac Diamond Borderabilities . The yellow cardstock layer is Sunflowers Medium and the card base is Classic Red Prismatics . All designer paper is from the My Mind's Eye Jack & Jill paper kit.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
