Colorful Daisy Dreams



Hello Hivers,

Wow!  I am so proud of myself.  I came up with this layout all on my own.  It is not very often that I come up with the card sketch AND design all by myself.  It is usually either or.  I just love it.  I wish that the Wink of Stella would have shown better in this photo.  Oh, and those Berry Burst Glitter Enamel Dots are to die for.  I need to order some more of them.

Colors:  Pear Pizzazz, Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Whisper White, Basic Black, and Daffodil Delight

Stamps:  Colorful Seasons and Daisy Delight

Accessories:  Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Layering Circles Framelits, Glitter Enamel Dots, Wink of Stella, Color Theory DSP

To a Wonderful Friend...



Hello Hivers,

You all know how happy bright colors make me.  The Calypso Coral just pops.  I love it...and with the Pear Pizzazz...Man!  It just makes me smile.  Don't you just love the new Ombre ribbon?  These cards are essentially the same.  I just change the direction of the opening of the cards.  I used a couple of sentiments from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Eastern Daisy Thanks




Hello Hivers,

Let me start by saying...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! to my mother and my youngest son.

These cards were not made for them, but they did get some special treats.  Today I am sharing with you a couple of thank you cards.  I have been trying the clean and simple look.  I think I am doing a pretty good job at keeping it simple...may need to work a little more on the clean part.

Big Delightful Birthday



Hello Hivers,

I am really enjoying the Delightful Daisy Suite.  The colors are so vibrant and go well for just about any occasion.  I just used small strips of the DSP along the tops of these cards.  I added a portion of the Delicate White Doilies to each card,  that I sponged with Wisteria Wonder ink.  I think the 1/4" Daffodil Delight Double-Stitched Ribbon really pops on these cards.  You can't really see it in the photograph, but I added Wink of Stella to all the flowers.

As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today.

Retired Birthday Wishes

I don't know why, but I have been holding on to some scraps from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack.  I finally decided to go ahead and use them on a couple of cards.  What do you think?  Not too bad for scraps.

Stamps:  Big on Birthdays and Confetti Celebration

Eastern Beauty Smiles




Hello Hivers,

Colors:  Dapper Denim, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Smokey Slate, Wink of Stella, and Soft Sky

Hello Hivers,

I was wowed by the results of this card.  I am not a huge fan of Wisteria Wonder, but I love how it looks when paired with Calypso Coral.  The bold image from Big on Birthdays really stands out.  The final touch was the New Calypso Coral 1/4" Ombre Ribbon that I added to the top corner.

Polished Stone Sympathy




Hello Hivers,

I hate having to make Sympathy cards, but I do love the way this card turned out.  I wanted it to be very simple with calming colors.  I added a pop of color with Flirty Flamingo to just one of the roses.  I used the Bright Wishes and Colorful Seasons stamp sets to complete this card.

Colors:  Whisper White, Glossy White, Smokey Slate, Pool Party, Silver Glitter

Colorful Seasons Sympathy





Hello Hivers,

I made this card for my oldest son to give to one of his friends.  She lost her husband a couple of weeks ago.  I can't imagine what she is going through.  We are praying for her to find comfort in good memories of their life together.
