I love everything floral! Fresh flowers, pictures of flowers, floral sheets, floral quilts, and much more. Especially flower stamps, dies, and designer series paper. My Floral Happy Birthday card has it all.

Do you see the flower peeking out from the inside of my card? Do you stamp the inside of your card? That simple touch can really set your cards apart. It takes such a small amount of time and really makes your cards stand out. Why not try it on the next card you create? Are you inspired to create your own Floral Happy Birthday Card?

Hydrangeas are awesome! I remember my Grandmother always having huge, I mean HUGE hydrangea bushes in front of her home. The flowers were purple and blue and absolutely gorgeous. Clearly, my Grandmother could grow anything. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for me. At least, now I can stamp them to my heart’s content, and in any color I choose. Hopefully, you will create a Hydrangea “For You” card for someone in your life. Your thoughtfulness will certainly be appreciated.

I love the look of my Parisian Beauty Birthday Card. I had such a fun time putting all the parts together to form a beautiful but elegant card.
Repetition stamping can sometimes be quite tricky. However, the Parisian Beauty sentiment easily lines up; don’t be afraid to try it. Did you notice the beautiful embossed background? I used the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. One of my very favorites!
I find it helps to repeat a color three times on my cards. In particular, the gold-edged ribbon, the gold on the Golden Honey DSP, and the gold embossed Eiffel tower. Consequently, the color repetition helps your eye travel across the card and adds continuity to the design.
Did you notice the fleur-de-lis stamped in Blushing Bride? It adds just that touch of color to tie everything together. I love my simple, elegant card. Hopefully, you are inspired to stamp your own Parisian Beauty Birthday card.
I’ve always wanted to travel to Paris. Visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, walk down the Champs-Elysées, and as might be expected, eat french pastries. Well, a girl can dream. However, my Parisian Beauty Amour card does put me in mind of all things french.
You can add visual interest on the inside of your card by tapping off the ink before stamping your cardstock. This technique not only makes your card interesting, but it also adds a subtle reminder of your main focal image. Why not make your own Parisian Beauty Amour card?

My Joy to the World Christmas card is both stunning and easy to create. I thoroughly enjoy creating a variety of Christmas cards and love how this turned out. Gail Ellis of Blue Rose Paper Treasures inspired my card.
I have always loved hydrangeas. My grandmother always had the most beautiful purple/blue hydrangeas in front of her home in Southern California. Every time I look at a plant, a photograph, or a stamped image I think of her and her beautiful garden. I hope my card with the embossed and stamped flowers will bring back a lovely memory for you too.
Unfortunately, the Clear Wink of Stella does not show up in the photo. But, believe me, it is there and very sparkly.
Check out the deep impression you get with the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. It really lends the right touch to this beautiful birthday card.
