Busy weekend ahead...

Well, I have a very busy weekend tomorrow and then Sunday we are getting together at my mom's for our monthly cardmaking party for Operation Write Home :-)

Before the hustle and bustle of the weekend gets started, I wanted to share 2 cards I made this evening.

The first one I made using Flower Fusion 6 (again!).  I started by stamping the solid image in Versa Mark on the Kraft base.  Then I stamped the outline in Malted Milk on the white cardstock pieces. Finally, I stamped the outline in Vintage Cream on Ocean Tides that I had die cut.  Not sure if you can tell, but I also stamped the leaves in Versa Mark using Background Basics: Sheet Music. The last step was to stamp the sentiment using Peeled Paint.

The second card was made using my all-time favorite set from PTI - Peaceful Garden.  I knew it would be my favorite the minute I saw the sneak peeks!  For this card, I stamped the Kraft base, again using Versa Mark - but with the design from Postmarks.  Then I stamped Vintage Cream cardstock with Malted Milk, using Background Basics: Newsprint before cutting it out with a Spellbinders label. On top of that, I stamped the Bamboo image from Peaceful Garden and the little bee from Postmarks using Frayed Burlap.  I then added the sentiment with Fountain Pen, and as a final touch, added the three little dew drops.

Have a great weekend everybody!



  1. Hi Kristen, beautiful cards! They have such a warm feel!

  2. both cards are great - love the flower cluster in the first - on the second: the way you combined the "news" at the top w/ "miss you" at the bottom tugs at my heart-strings......
