Watercolor Pom Pom

The Wonder of Watercolor Challenge at Moxie Fab World

 ........ Color without boundaries ......
I was playing around with my newest purchase of this Hero Arts "Pom Pom Flower" stamp and some Distress inks and actually loved the results!The pillow colors are very intriguing.  I'm usually happiest when the colors are inside the line, but hey "Be happy! it's all good! (sentiment by PrintwWorksCollection). The border is a QuicKutz Cookie Cutter "Flowers" die. Also a black brad added to center of flower.

Pink Wedding Roses

The Inspiration Challenge at SCS takes us to the website Windsor. What lovely goods there!
I was inspired by this beautiful Roses and gold necklace
I used Sizzix Tattered Pinecone die for the largest rose and Sizzix 3D Flower for the four smaller. The background embossing is Tim Holtz Fancy Frame and the sentiment is JustRite.

Simply Mother's Day

For the Clean and Simple Challenge at SCS the hostess presented the colors of turquoise, green and pink. I, do, love stamping and fussy cutting vellum. It'se a fresh and light approach to this CAS card.
 I adore the subtle turquoise dots in the vellum under skirt. 
Distress ink shabby shutters adds to the softness. 
Mother's Day cards are not just for my mother but 
for all the women in my immediate family so I'd better get started!

Magnolias for the Bride

Moxie Fab World 

Tuesday Trigger: Magical Magnolias! Being a Southerner I could not resist making my version of the beautiful magnolias in the inspiration photo. I used memory box "Norrland Flower"  and "Flutter Vine" dies to form the buds and branch. Each flower was cut twice in pink and yellow. My background is a Magenta bouquet stamped onto vellum and heat embossed in white powder. 
It is the season for weddings!
