    Hummingbird Sympathy

    This card turned out so good.  I love everything about it.  First off, I love hummingbirds they are such beautiful creatures.

    I wanted the recipient to enjoy this card while they are going through tough times after a loss of someone dear to them.

    I have the flowers and bird popped up for some dimension and in the middle photo I was trying to show the glitter I added to the card. For the last photo, which is the inside sentiment, I felt it said it all.

    Daffodil Birthday Two

    I made this card to go with one of my card groups, the theme of course was flowers. I chose the daffodil from Stampin Up and I used three colors of ink for the flower. I used a leaf die to create the green background for a little texture.

    I first stamped the flower with versa mark ink and then heat embossed the daffodil with white embossing power.

    My next step was to color the flower using a pink, yellow and orange ink and blending brushes.  After the coloring I used a paper towel to wipe the ink off of the white embossed areas. I added some pop dots to the back of the flower to pop it up on the card and then added a short sentiment on both the inside and outside so there will be plenty of room to write a birthday message.

    Spring Gnome

    For this card I used the print and cut feature in Design Space. I first printed all of the pop up pieces for the inside and then did the male and female gnomes.  I left the front and inside blank so that it could be a just a note card or Hi how you doing or even a Spring birthday.

    As you open the card the images start to pop up.

    Daffodil Birthday

    This is a rather simple card to make.  All the work is done thru the card stock.

    I don’t know about you but it’s starting to look like Spring around here, my daffodils are starting to bloom and it made me think of this card.

    I used a deep green card stock for my base and then added a skinny black one and on top I added the daffodil design.  You can’t really see it but I used Wink a Stella on the daffodils to give it a little shine.

    Doesn’t this card just scream Spring.

    A simple Happy Birthday sentiment at the top and then another sentiment on the inside.
