    Water-colored seashells

    This card would make a great one for someone who lives near water or a summertime birthday.

    I first embossed the seashells and then colored each one with a different color of metallic water colors.  You can’t really tell from the picture but it is stunning from the shine of the watercolors.

    After coloring I die cut the shells out and mounted them on blue cardstock to give it an underwater feel.  I then added a few crystals to look like bubbles in the water.

    For the inside I stamped make a wish and added a small candle.

    Purple Cone Flowers

    I love cone flowers and as I was stamping this flower I thought I could turn it into a cone flower.  Cone flowers are a lot like daisy flowers they just have a pointy inside, whereas; a daisy is full and flat center.

    I colored these flowers two different ways.  For one of them I colored it with a solid purple marker and on the second one I used various pinks and purple because a cone flower changes colors as it dies.

    Both of these cards are for sympathy cards.

    Wish I could heal your heart

    I find the hardest cards to make are sympathy ones, because they usually deal  with death.  I wanted this card to bring some happiness to the recipient with the bright colors. A simple sentiment on the inside and you can write your own message underneath.

    Pink and White Roses

    This card would not only be good for a birthday but also an anniversary or wedding.  The colors could be changed out to match the colors for a wedding.

    I die cut the roses in two colors, pink and off white and stamped the inside with a flower so that it could be used for just about any occasion. I layered the dark pink roses on top of the white to give more dimension.
