Poppies & Doily

I started by inking the Hello Doily stamp in Sahara Sand onto Whisper White cardstock. Then stamped the Pleasant Poppies and little butterfly from Papillon Potpourri directly on top of the doily using Black Stazon ink. Colored the flowers and butterfly with markers - baja breeze, island indigo, garden green. Added a little Signo white gel pen. Added shadows under flowers and butterfly with Sahara Sand marker. Background panel is Pool Party.

Thank you Katherine Constable of Australia for the inspiration - I originally saw her card similar to this on Stampin' Connection!

MOSAIC pattern case

I CASE'd this card from a posting on Splitcoast Stampers for one of my workshop cards this week. Such a fun pattern, using the new MOSAIC MADNESS stamp set with matching MOSAIC punch and embossing folder! I used paper circles for the center, because I had 25 people in the workshop and couldn't provide 225 basic jewels :)

I used Real Red and new in color Coastal Cabana for my colors.

Wildflower Birthday


  • cardstock: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, non SU pink
  • ink: Pretty in Pink, Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Night of Navy, Island Indigo
  • stamps: Wildflower Meadow, Label Love
  • accessories: Wildflower Meadow folder, Artisan Label punch, non SU ribbon
After inking entire Wildflower Meadow with Pretty in Pink, I then colored bird and flowers with markers, huffed and stamped. Embossed with matching Wildflower Meadow folder.

Note: I made this for a card workshop, and everyone loved the card. However, it took so long for each person to color the stamp, that it left people waiting for too long. So, I wouldn't recommend it as a great hands-on card!
