SSS Floral All Occasion Cards

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes
I stamped these cards and then painted them while on vacation.
I had seen the card created by Heather Hoffman some time ago.  I love the color combo!
The stamps are from Simon Says Stamp.

White Rabbit Belated BD

Simon Says Monday Challenge:  Numbers
The Theme for our Paper Crafters' Club next month is Fast.

This White Rabbit Stamp has been in my stash for a long long time.  The company that made is is called Stamping Ground.  I stamped him in Memento and colored him with Copics.  Some Glossy Accent, Spica Gold pen and Wink of Stella highlight his accessories.

I made the background with letters from Lawn Fawn and Simon Says ink on kraft paper.

Inside I have a stamp of Alice (in Wonderland).  The Queen of Hearts is on the envelope.

Floral Hello II

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Flowers

The materials for this card are the same as the last post.  I just enjoyed painting these so much I wanted to use different colors.

Hello Floral

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Flowers
I love this Mama Elephant stamp the incorporates a sentiment with flowers.
It's so versatile I will use these cards for Birthday and Mother's Day.  They would also be cheerful Get Well cards.
I was in the mood to water color.  I white heat embossed the image on water color paper
using the Misti because it's a large stamp and I wanted to be able to stamp it more than once.
I used Wink of Stella on the Hello just to make it stand out a little more.
Oops!  That top ribbon is crooked!  Why do I not see those things until I photograph and post them?

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Floral

The woman in this Unity stamp reminds me very much of my daughter.
When I want a floral stamp I go to Altenew.  This stamp was perfect because it wasn't too frilly.

The card base is Neenah kraft.  Flowers are stamped on Neenah white with Memento and colored with Copics.

What I love most about card making is being able to create a card that truly fits the person who will receive it.   A fru fru girly card would not be appropriate for my daughter.  To her kids she is "Mama".  Altenew alphabet stamps made it possible to put that on her card.

Underwater double slider BD Card

Simon Says Monday Challenge:  Water
Saturday my Paper Crafters Club had a Funshop.  Karen did a fabulous job teaching us two interactive cards.  This is a double slider, one I had never seen before.
My card front is entirely Lawn Fawn.  I just pulled out every Copic category I had an colored my little heart out.  Balloons on the left are from Simon Says.  Fish on the right is from G Rated.
The water is colored with Color Burst.

Smoothie Birthday Card

I have a question.  What is that fruit stamp that is off to the right of this card?  It's shaped like a pear but I've never seen a pear peeled in that way.  Any ideas?

What fun I've had creating this card from Lawn Fawn's So Smooth stamp set!  I saw a card made by Tina Tavlovic and just had to CASE it.   Working with all of the Lawn Fawn elements is such an adventure.  I never realize what all is in the Lawn Fawn sets until I actually use them.  Then I am just amazed at all of the possibilities!

I did this on water color paper.  Water colors were used for all of the juice.  Everything but the blueberries are stamped on Neenah with Memento, colored with Copics then fussy cut.
