Some more cards

Hello all, I've been busy busy busy as a beaver, but the awful weather has made it hard to photograph.

TODAY I finally finished my custom order invites, I'll post those up a bit later…this post will be long enough !!

A bunch of card to show off today, featuring mostly my new PTI stamps sets. The first two feature In Bloom and the middle flower from that set, I LOVE it !!
I made this card for my Grandmother who had a little surgery done this week - no biggie, she's home already but she loves anything I make her !
Her name is Rose (where I got mine) so I thought the flower from in bloom and these pretty reds would be perfect. Used my copics, put it up on some PP whose name has completely escaped me- I'll get it if you like just leave me a comment. The green dots is the reverse of this gorgeous paper- and the ribbon scarlet jewel from PTI. Backed on some Smokey Shadow PTI card stock, EK success damask border punch, and Spica glitter pen on the flower.

This next card is a technique I found while scrolling through Nichole Heady's Blog, the Faux Silk. It's just a stamped image (or patterned paper ) cover it in glue and then wrinkled tissue paper. I'll use a different glue next time, mine did not dry as clear as I would have like. I added a little snippet of the original coloured image before the glue, cause it's just so pretty !! The little wire flower is from the dollar store (love the dollar store finds !!) and the brad is making memories. I used a magnet to close it just like Nichole did, as the faux silk panel gets REALLY heavy with all that glue !! Scarlet jewel base, scarlet jewel twill tape layered over ripe avocado grosgrain.

A good luck card for an agent who is leaving our team, I used Pure poppy and Enchanted evening, love those 2 and they look great with Kraft. I love how the saddle stich ribbon (EE) almost looks like the road !

Last Card is an almost complete and total case of a Niki Estes card with the exception of the taggy thingy..……whew, 4 cards in one post, hope you're still with me !!!


  1. Fab cards, Rose! I really like your good luck card - such a clever use for the ribbon!

  2. I LOVE the bike one. Very clever use of the ribbon for the road.
