Happy Easter

 
...still stamping and coloring tulips as my real ones outside still haven't bloomed...
 
Using the stamp set Blessed Easter, I inked up the image with Raspberry Ripple and Always Artichoke Stampin' Write markers and stamped on Whisper White cardstock.
Then I colored them in with Pistachio Pudding and Pink Pirouette markers.

 
 
Wishing you a blessed Easter!

Red Tulips

 
We are always so far behind in Spring coming to our area that by this time of year I really enjoy stamping flowers.  My tulips in the yard are just coming up and I hope to see them later this month.
 
The tulips on this card are from the stamp Blessed Easter
 
The image is stamped on Whisper White card stock with Black Stazon ink.
I colored in the image with Real Red and Garden Green ink and blender pens.

Hello Baby Card and Quilt

Needed a baby card and I don't have any current "baby" stamps but I do have the words "hello baby" from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes.
I used the Fresh Prints designer series paper stack for the banners along with the Banner Punch from the sale-a-bration catalog to shape the bottoms of the banners. 
 
A simple card that matches the baby quilt I made!

Celebrate Card and Union Jack Quilt

Well, once again I have been spending more time sewing than card making and my little blog sits unattended so I made a card to celebrate finishing a quilt top!
 
For this card I used the Too Kind stamp set and just stamped the flowers upside down to look like fireworks and added a little sparkle with Dazzling Details.
The "Celebrate" is from the Best of Birthdays stamp set which it only available until March 31.
 
 
Now onto the quilt that I am celebrating.
Perhaps I should wait and celebrate when it is all finished and quilted but this one took so much of my life hours that just finishing the top was a huge success.

 
I love tea time and all things British so when I saw this pattern called His Royal Union Jack in the January/February 2014 McCall's Quilting Magazine I knew I had to make it.
This was the first time I have done paper piecing and after the top was finished and it was time to remove the paper that alone was a 5 hour job!


The cute red fabric with the little tea pots in the picture below will be the backing fabric.
Love it!
 
And, just so you know, I am working on some cards so will have some to share soon.
