A Spring Amaryllis

Normally Amaryllises are a Christmas flower, but today I decided to make it a flower for spring.  I had this decorator paper from Basic Grey that had some pink flowers similar to the Prickley Pear Amaryllis.  I stamped the flowers onto white card stock and colored them with Copic Markers to match the paper.  Then I used the oval lace die from Cheery Lynn to cut out a pink frame.  I used the small flourish die to cut out the green vines to accent the card with some green and then finished the card with the Many Thanks sentiment from Prickley Pear.  There's more to see on the PPRS blog, so check it out!

Gather Love

I love these Starburst Daisies from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Here I used both the Large and Small Starburst Daisies to make a field of flowers.  This simple card has the flowers stamped in black on a piece of decorator paper.  Then the sentiment is stamped on a strip of white card stock and the Butterfly is cut out with the Mini Butterflies die and stamped with the Mini Butterflies 2 clear set.  I finished of the card with some self-adhesive gems.  Want more ideas?  Hope on over to the PPRS blog now!

Happy Father's Day

Father's Day is in a week and it's time to make a card for Dad.  I am using the Ford Ranchero from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps for the main image on this card.  Then I cut out a scalloped circle with the die and embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder.  To add the bronze color to the diamond tread, I used the brown 3-D Stamp Paint from Viva Decor.  I used Candi, newspaper decorator paper and the hinge die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs.  If you like the old cars, check out the new 53 Chevy from Prickley Pear too.  Now hop on over to the PPRS blog for more inspiration today!

Book with Flowers

Here is another background that was created with Tim Holtz stencils and Distress products.  Then I layered the doily that I cut out with the doily die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The Book with Flowers stamp was from Prickley Pear's spring release.  I colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut around it.  Then I popped it up over the doily.  I cut out the flourish to place behind the paper flower and added the stamped Blobby flower for the center of the flower.  I added a bit of pink tint with the Picked Raspberry distress ink. I finished the card by stamping the Many Thanks sentiment onto a white strip of card stock.  As usual, there is more inspiration and beautiful cards on the PPRS blog, so check it out!
