There's a great inspiration board this week designed by Felicita at the TicTacToe Challenge #198.  I went straight across the center with Easter, free and floral.

supplies: Honey Bee Lovely Layers Hydrangea

I used four colors of cardstock for my flower and then blended in the centers for some added dimension.  Cut my card base to 4x5.25 so part of the leaves could hang over the side a bit.  Did some yellow ink blending on the card base before attaching the flower and adding the little sentiment.

Come join our challenge this and have a chance to be a future guest designer.

I'm kind of obsessed with this split front design and made three more cards in the past couple of days.  But now I don't have any more large flower layered dies - maybe I need to buy some more?????

supplies: Tulip; Sunflower; Peony

For  these three cards, I made the slats 3/4" and only used two - each slat 1/4" apart.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bibi Cameron inspired me to make this set of cards - had so much fun making them - especially after I figured it all out!!  Wasn't sure of the measurements she used so my slats are each 1/2" wide and placed 1/4" apart.  I used my sticky mat in my MISTI to line everything up - worked like a charm!  So here goes a heavy photo post!  I used heavy cardstock and the cards stand up just fine.  Two months into 2023 and I haven't bought any new stamps or dies and enjoyed going thru my dies to find suitable flowers and sentiments for this set.

supplies: Anemone; Sunflower; Geranium; Hydrangea; Peony; Lily; Coneflower

Thanks for stopping by - love to read your kind comments.

Designed a Valentine card for the new TicTacToe Challenge for this week.  Elizabeth created the perfect board for February 14th - I went from left to right diagonally with heart, free and die cut.

 Supplies: MFT stitched rectangle; Hero Arts Infinity Hearts

I die cut the heart in the center of my overlay piece, placed it on the card base and lightly drew the outline of the heart with pencil (erased when I finished with the sentiment).  Then I stamped the "hugs" in Versamark and gold embossed.  Popped up the heart piece with foam tape and glued my leafy piece along with some foam tape bits on some of the little leaves.  Added a few pink hearts and done.  Sprayed it all with glimmer mist for some sparkle.

Hope you'll join our challenge this week and design a pretty Valentine for someone special.
