Flowers for You!

Here's a beautiful bouquet of flowers for you. I love this huge stamp and I made this on a super sized extra tall card. This floral image is called "Daisy Jar" and it's so beautiful. The size of the stamp is very large, about 4.5" x 2.75".

I made a card from it that was XL in height, for this sample 7.5" tall by4.25" wide. I used some embossed paper in red and some simple clear dots as embellishments. I colored the flowers with Copic markers.

Have a happy spring!

For Someone Special

I thought this Moon and Stars Baby Quilt would look cool using primary colors rather than the usual pastels!

Each moon and star was cut out and attached with dimensinals.

Thanks for looking!    Mary B. Giemza ~

Here's a beautiful Iris card. Very simple design but I really like how the card turned out. I put an embossed background and added some neutral color fibers. I colored the iris stamp with copic markers.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Fairy Friends

Here's a beautiful stamp called stained glass fairy friends. I love the youth and beauty, it brings back memories of playing with the other kids outside during the day. My grandma was particularly fond of hummingbirds, so my grandfather placed feeders up all around the outside of the house.Project Materials: Cardstock (Westrim, DCWV, Bazzill); Stamp (I Brake for Stamps); Flowers (Prima); Ink (Memento); Copic markers, Ribbon; Memories (MAMBI);

Have a great week!

On Your Wedding Day . . .

I fell in love with this cute duck the moment I saw him! He's the sweetest thing and I can think of a bunch of funny sentiments to go with him. For this card I chose a rub-on that say's "Adorable". I used Pebbles polka dot white ribbon, oval nestabilities, and cute orange buttons to go with him. I think he would also be cute for a "pick me up" type card with a sentiment like "It's been a long day!" You can see this duck on the store site here.

Happy Friday everyone, Holley
