My Mom loves her flowers. So I decided  to do a floral card. I sponged the background first with Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass ink and then stamped the Berry Vine image multiple times (this is one of my favorite IO stamps!). I added Summer Mix Flower Soft to the spots where the berries would be on the image.


Here’s a closer look:

Here is another card made with the new toppers available today at Flower Soft! The Toppers at Flower Soft are pre-colored (beautifully!) all you do is apply it to your card and decorate. How fun is that?

Here is my card using the new Recipe Toppers:

Stamped Easter Egg

Yep! I stamped on an hard boiled egg.  It was actually easier than I thought it would be. I used a stamp from Lizzie Anne Designs So Swirly set which is mounted on EZ Mount Thin. I didn’t use a block, I inked the stamp and cupped it in my hand and pressed it to the curves of the egg. Then I added some little Prima flowers with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

I made the little holder with a piece of green cardstock that I secured into a circle by using a tape gun and then clipping little “grassy” shaped V’s out of with scissors.


Here are the products I used:


Stamps: So Swirly – Lizzie Anne Designs
Paper: Bazzill
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink (Crushed Olive)
Other: Prima flowers, Aleene’s Tacky Glue
