Another Swap Card and Stylish Blogger Award

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. It’s raining here in Florida and has been for a few days….not sure what to do with it all…except be thankful that it’s quite possibly putting out all the fires here for good. We’ve had so many and the air quality has been just horrible. So we’re thankful for it.

I’d like to share another swap card I made for convention. It’s showcasing the “Fabulous Florets” Set from Stampin’ Up! #123027 for the clears set at $17.95. This set is a must~must have!! I hope you like it. I hope my swappers like it!!

Fabulous Florets Swap Card 003

I used So Saffron, Basic Black and Whisper White for this card and sponged with So Saffron and Calypso Coral. I also painted the flowers with the same colors. I first painted with the So Saffron and added Calypso Coral as an overlay leaving just a bit of the So Saffron to peek through. I did this with re-inkers and my Aqua Painter. The Bow Of course was made with my Magic Bow Maker available for purchase on my right side bar or click on the picture of it to direct you.


Now I’d like to thanks Sharon Carr for awarding me for the Stylish Blogger Award. How fun. Sharon plays along with us over at the Stamping 411 all the time and I get to see her lovely creations almost weekly. Thanks Sharon for honoring me with this. You can see Sharon’s lovely cards on her blog here.


Now I have to award this to six people who inspire me. That’s a difficult task as there are so many.

Dianna Gibb over at Stamping with Di

Sandi MacIver at Sandi

Carole Anne’ Sluchinski at Stampin Stress Away

Carrie Gaskin at Artistic Avenger

Selene Kempton over at Stampin 4 Fun

Gretchen Barron at Inspiration in Action

I could name so many more but I’m only to list six who’s work I love and admire.

That’s it for today. Make sure to check out these ladies blogs!!! You’re in for a treat.

Beautiful Lee! Love the oval behind your flower, the colors, and the use of black for the leaves. I don't think I would ever think to do that! Your pretty bow ties it all together so nicely.

Congrats on your Stylish award. You are very deserving!!!

Wow, this is really stunning. I would never think to color leaves black and gray. This is beautiful. I also love this stamp set. The oval is very nice and I would like to know how you did that. Thanks.
