A fun pineapple card.  I found the Pineapple embossing folder at Paper Source in Kansas City a few weeks ago.  The Pineapple stamp/dies are from Concord & 9th.  Pineapples are so trendy right now - I keep seeing them everywhere!

Some goodies that I picked up during a visit to Paper Source.  The Best Birthday sentiment my friend, Doreen already had and she said it was one that she used often.  Enough said - SOLD!  The Thank you and the floral were on samples that we saw in the store.  I stamped the floral image with Onyx Versafine ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  I used a white gel pen to color a few flowers, also a few Copic Markers and my Clear Wink of Stella.  It is so pretty on the  Pool colored card stock and the Chartreuse.  

So here is Doreen's card - she ended up going back to Paper Source to buy the floral stamp after she saw my cards.  The enabling seems to flow back & forth!  ha!  I love that she used the Amuse Studio Tag Bundle dies on her card.  So classy!

Hibiscus Border

I made this card in May and I thought I would share.  You could easily change the sentiment for your occasion.  I used my Misti tool to ink up the floral border and when I wanted to add color I just inked up the image again and applied another layer of color.  I just love using the MISTI and it really is the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented.  If you haven't checked it out yet, but sure to watch this video.

Thinking of You

A card I made a while ago using an Amuse Studio favorite stamp set called House Plants.  I started with a piece of watercolor paper and laid down a wash of color with a water brush.  I used three Splash inks to create the background.  I used all Splash inks to color the plants and flowers as well.

Be A Flamingo...

I saw this design in the Amuse Studio June Collection flyer and I couldn't wait to make a few cards.  The feathers are background paper from the Everything's Rosy patterned paper.  I used Copic markers to color in a few areas with gray and then the focal feather with shades of peach.
