Here are some fun cards I created using a stamp set from My Favorite Things ( These cards were a lot of fun to make, since my grandson loves dinosaurs! I will be giving one of these to him for his birthday in April. I think he'll love it!

These are 3 flower pot cards I made for spring and summer using Lynn Larson's tutorial at . Her instructions are very easy to follow. I used paper from K & Co. for the pot design and for the flowers. All I did was punch the flowers out using my scalloped circle punch. I ran some of the flowers through the CB using the polka dot folder and the swirl folder. I decorated with buttons and gems. I attached the flowers to a piece of CS, which fits inside the pot, using double stick tape. I popped up the center flower with a pop dot to give it some dimension. I cut out a butterfly made of vellum, glittered it and decorated the center with pearls. I cut out the leaves freehand and attached them to the flowers. Just remember to make sure the flowers and leaves fit in the envelope that you're using. I used adhesive ribbon on two of the pots and tied regular decorative ribbon on the middle pot. These cards are very easy to create and great to give for birthdays, Easter, Mother's Day, etc. Have fun!

This card was stamped with a negative image stamp from Hero Arts using a chunky gold glitter embossing powder. It was then double mounted and attached to black cardstock. I then stamped and embossed the bottom of the card with the positive stamp of the same image using gold glitter embossing powder. If you click on the card you can view it up close and see the glitter better.

This card was stamped with the same poppy stamp as the card above on pink cardstock using clear embossing powder. I used a gold glitter pen on the inside center of the poppies, then used black Stickles to finish the centers. I double mounted it on black and pink cardstock then strung a black piece of thin yarn 3 times around and attached it to the black cardstock. I stamped hello on pink cardstock and attached it to the card and done! Hope you like it.
