Jasmine Blooms

Hi and I hope you are all fine.

I am practicing making shaped leaves and flowers.  I still need lots of practice but the Garden Notes Jasmine dies are easy to use and make some cute flowers.

Orchid Stem

Hello everyone we have had such crazy weather lately, first 6" of snow, then heavy rains with wind. Finally a couple of dry days.  I spent my time indoors making this design.  The Orchids are time consuming but worth the time.  I first die cut all the pieces, the darker orchids are from card stock called Sunflower.  The other one is light yellow.  For the stems I just die cut the flowers in green and cut them apart and glued to them to the stem. Even through I used Wink of Stella the picture does not show the wonderful sparkles.

Layered Holiday Design

Greetings everyone, I meant to post this design a while ago but it just never happened.  I created the entire design just using layers without mounting tape.  I cut several clouds and added them to the top of the card.  Then die cut the Village House, Country House and Manor House and just trimmed pieces from them until I had a house with a steeple and second story.

For the trees I added glitter card stock and the top snow covered stacker tree and used blue and red Nuvo Crystal Dots for the ornaments.

Memory Box - Star of Wonder, Village House, Country House, Manor House & Swirled Lollipops
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Red & Blue

Craft Note:  I recently purchased a thin galvanized metal board by ArtMinds from Michael's craft store and a package of magnets.  I have it on my craft table and I find the magnets really hold the paper in place while gluing and creating my cards.

Have The Sweetest Birthday

Greetings everyone, hope you are all doing well.

I thought the little cupcake stand die from Impression Obsession was super cute.  I used glitter paper for the frosting but the picture does not show it very well.  Before attaching to the polka paper I added a little mounting tape for dimension.
