Queen Anne's Lace is a wildflower, and now a lovely stamp set, too! This stamp set took my eye!
Queen Anne's Lace Stamp Set #152607 is a two-step design, but easy and quick to line up.
When adding color to the flower, I "stamped off" to get a soft look.
Wink of Stella #141897 adds glitter to the flowers.
Photopolymer stamp images are totally CLEAR and make this 3-step To a Wild Rose Stamp #149452 very sophisticated! Three-step images stack to create magnificent shading!!
The flower colors are Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile. The bottom flower is full strength inks. The other two flowers were second generation or stamped off, so the intensity is less.
This is a fancy fold called a double "Z" fold: Base card is 11 x 4-1/4", scored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2". The layer is 8-1/4 x 3", scored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2". The Cajun Craze layer and envelope flap are embossed w/ the sweet Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder #152725. Be sure to visit my next post for a totally different use of this same To a Wild Rose Stamp Set!
The pineapple top was sponged with Garden Green ink on Garden Green card stock. The Pineapple is Crushed Curry color.

This card is already in the mail! Remember: Make cards, Mail cards!

I needed a peaceful card and this Beautiful Moments Stamp Set #151677 was the perfect solution!
This image is so thoughtful and calm. It looks breezy so I chose the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder #151474 for the layer because of the swirls. The designer paper is Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper #149100 with soft flowers.
The base card is Petal Pink. Black would be too harsh so I chose Crumb Cake Ink Pad.
I'm sending this special card to someone who has had a big loss. Remember your friends in their times of grief. It means sooo much.

How cute are these overalls created with the All Dressed Up Dies #151665 that made the "purses" in my last post?!?!?!? I cased this adorable idea from Australian Demonstrator Michele Jutrisa. Michele has a 26 minute video you can view. I just had to make the coveralls with the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper #151189!
Cut off the bottom and side panel of the die cut purse, then cut a "V" to create two legs using the simple measurements above.
Here is the backside so you can see how I crossed the two die cut straps.
ALL dies used are in the All Dressed Up Dies #151665. What a cute baby card, baby Valentine, toddler birthday or farmer card!! Just change the color!
TWO SUPER FUN CREATIONS from one set of dies!! SOOOO many possibilities!! TRY IT!!

Here is a clever idea using Pressed Petal Specialty Washi Tape #149585! I was inspired by Demonstrator, Su Mohr.
Lightly mark the shape of the plain heart punch from Heart Punch Pack of 2 layering hearts #151292. Starting from the TOP of the heart shape, fill in the image by overlapping the self-adhesive Washi Petals. Punch out the completed shape and layer onto a scalloped heart punched from Rose Glimmer Paper #146960.
These tiny tumbling hearts are punched with the Dog Builder Punch #148543.
I love the simplicity and shimmer of this sweet card!! Use it for Valentine, Birthday, Engagement, Wedding, Anniversary or Baby!
