Well, I have another fun technique today, Believe it or not, the stamp used for this card is a silhouette stamp, not a lined detail stamp. It was pretty easy to add the colour and a little bit of detail to make these flowers look like they were hand painted as opposed to stamped. This is a technique that I learned quite a few years ago when I used to be a Stampin’ UP demonstrator. It gives a much different look to stamps you may already have in your stash.

Valentines is only a few days away so I thought I would post another Valentine from my card box. I wish I could take full credit for this card but I got the original idea from a card challenge I was a part of back in 2010 😳. It was called a Featured Stamper challenge from Stampin Connection, and the challenge was to look through the featured stampers posts, find something to use as an inspiration and share what we came up with. Lisa Young was the featured artist and I really liked how she cut the petals of the flower to make a heart she said she got the flower idea from a craft magazine. The colours and embossing were how I changed it up to make it my own.

Sooooo I have been not so patiently waiting to post this card as I was waiting for my friend to receive it in the mail, It would probably help if I mailed it in time 🙄 but I got the go ahead so here goes…….
This is my first attempt at a Flower Pot Pop up Card and I think it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself, I think the next time I will probably try to centre it a little better, I was concerned If I had it too high in the card the flowers were going to come out of the top of the card, it turned out that I had a little more room than I thought 🙂

I’ve got a quick one today, here is a fun circle flip card. I should have arranged them in a different order. The top pic is when the card is closed, the bottom pic is when the left side is open, and the middle pic is when both sides are open.
