Mother's Day Cards

Good morning to a beautiful day today...  These cards I received on Mother's Day.  Aren't they beautiful?  I decided to case them for myself because I love them so much.  Thanks, girls!   I just added the corners to mine using the "tin of cards" stamp set. I inked up just one side and put it on all the corners.  It seemed to finish out all the white.  thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Good morning ladies... Just posting a couple cards I had laying on my worktable that I didn't post yet.  The second one was inspired from weeinklings.  You can use just about any stamp set for your collage edge.    Hope you like them and that they inspire you.... Thanks for visiting. Carol Smith

Hope you had a happy Monday.  Finally the sun came out!  We built a deck... and we're really tired right now...Anyway, these cards I had fun with.  The first ones, you need to choose a stamp set that needs coloring in.  And then you just fill it with the precision glue pen and let dry, then use your lighter color and sponge all over the cardstock, and then stamp a backround with the darker color.  I found that blackberry bliss goes really well with the new plum color.  Thanks for visiting, Carol Smith

Old stamp set

Happy  Sunday to you!  These are my design, but they are an old set from way back.  I think that set is called winter rose or something.  but it's still gorgeous!  Have a great day!  Thanks for visiting me.  Carol Smith

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Matt!  Our son-in-law's BD was yesterday, and this is what I made for him.  Hope you like it.  It was cased, but I can't remember who inspired me.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

April Wreath- Paper pumpkin

Hope you're having a day as beautiful as it is outside...  Here is my alternate idea for the April paper pumpkin wreath.  I just cut some thinlet flowers, and added a bow.  HOpe you like it.  Thanks for visiting. Carol Smith

Doin' a little Smoochin'

I saw this SMOOCHING technique on Stampers Showcase today, and decided to give it a try!  IT's FUN!  You nust ink up a piece of acetate and spritz, lay your cardstock on it, ( or watercolor paper) and rub in on.  Then dry with your heat tool on front and then on back to manage the warp.  Its so cool.  Who needs the grunge stamps?  Anyway hope you enjoy trying it.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith
