Not so plain anymore...

Update the same card with a few changes. I added a felt flower with a rhinestone, embossed with cuttlebug, added some ribbon and punched butterflies.

Watercolor card

I used one of my favorite stamps, Hero Arts Design Block Silhouette S5033 and Distress Ink Dusty Concord. I also used a splatter stamp by Stampin Up. The verse is by Stampabilities-purchased at Hobby Lobby. I really like the font arrangement and I of course since I am verse junkie I had to have it(purchased on sale). I inked the stamp and then spritzed it with water, stamped the ink onto watercolor paper. Next I edged the paper with the ink pad, used a water brush to soften the edge. I then used the splatter stamp over the face of the card. Next I used the water brush to soften some the flowers. This card could stand alone or be placed on a piece of cardstock.

Cards for Soldiers

These are 2 cards I made for an internet friend whose son was returning home. This is the first time I have made patriotic cards to give to someone so it was a bit of a challenge. I bought the materials from Hobby Lobby

HI card for a swap.

This is a card I made for a swap on an internet group. I cut letters from my Cricut and used an old book page for the background. I continued my use of paper pleating. I think I am addicted. I really like the dimension and texture it adds to my cards. It is also making use of something I already have and not feeding my desire to acquire more stuff. Really need to work on that. Flower by Prima, heart punch by EK Success and stamp by Hero Arts.
