Friends are the Spice of Life

This card has lots of layers — you know I like layers!!!Gifts from the GardenThe base of the card is Mossy Meadow with a layer of Smoky Slate.
I added a layer of Rose Red (I know, when was the last time you used that color).
I applied a strip of the wonderful In Color Washi Tape (love that stuff)
across the center of the Whisper White layer.
Ink up the words with the Smoky Slate and Rose Red markers
and stamp, centering at the bottom.
I cut out Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White layers using the Lots of Labels framelits.
I inked up the stamp with markers — Mossy Meadow, Smoky Slate and Rose Red.

I am loving this stamp set — these kinds of flowers I can keep alive.

Garden in Bloom Elegance

This was another fun card we made at my Bingo Night Monday night.
Garden in BloomWatermelon Wonder has become one of my favorite colors and I love
how it pairs with Basic Black — they just "pop" together.
The base of this card is the new Thick Whisper White cardstock.
I used the Elegant Dots embossing folder on the Watermelon Wonder cardstock.
I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2" x 4 1/4" and punched one end
using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
I stamped the center of the flower image from Garden in Bloom stamp set
with Watermelon Wonder ink — next I stamped the flower outline
with Memento ink.  I stamped the small oval image in the center of the
flower with Watermelon Wonder ink (fills in the center white spot).
I added a large White Perfect Accent in the center of the flower.
The "a Happy Hello" are from the Tin of Cards stamp set.
Of course I used dimensionals to pop us the tag.
I love the look of this card and everyone finished it pretty quick.

I forgot to take Joan's picture — she won the final Black Out Game and received a very large shopping spree.  She's a very lucky lady — someone told her she should buy a Lotto Ticket.

In between Bingo games we stamped cards — 4 cards total.
Get Well SoupHere's the first one — we used the Get Well Soup single stamp.
This is another great color combination — Tip Top Taupe, Mossy Meadow and Island Indigo stamped on Whisper White cardstock.  We stamped the soup bowl twice and cut one out and popped it up with dimensionals.  It's great to have a few of these cards on hand — very quick and simple to make.
