Birthday Azaleas

Hi, For this card I really wanted to make something special as this was for a dear friend. I really love Kathy Racoosin's innovative background. On a piece of Neenah Solar White, I used varying shades of pigment ink to make this background.

I then colored in the Forever Azaleas digi stamp from Power Poppy. After cutting the image out, I adhered it onto the ombre pigment ink panel, using matte medium. I, then, die cut the whole panel with a cover plate. I raised up each of the squares to give this card some dimension.


Thank you for stopping by;

Get Cracking on Christmas Challenge





Hi,
I actually made a Christmas card for this hop.....I joined the hop to make myself think about Christmas cards. However, looking out my window at palms trees and a pool made it very difficult. When I told my husband I had made a Christmas, his jaw dropped. "You made a Christmas card???"

Yes, finally my Christmas stamps got used once at least. I used Power Poppy's adorable set called Frosted Gingerbread and the Snowflake Fusion cover plate die from My Favorite things. I might have added some Stickles LOL!!!



Next stop on the hop is my good friend and super-talented Jessie Banks! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Now go "get crackin" on those Christmas cards! The list of supplies used is at the end of the post.
