This is a card that I made using the fence die from Papertrey Ink. I also used the grass die from My Favorite Things in front of the fence. The flowers are from the Dream stamps from Papertrey Ink. The little flowers are from a paper punch that I’ve had for years–probably from Michael’s.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments today from those who took part in the Denami Blog Hop. It was such a nice opportunity to go to lots of new blogs and see what others are making.
This card uses the stamps from Heartfelt Creations. Of course, daisies are my favorite flower–I suppose because they seem to be so cheerful. The flowers are created with both stamps and dies–there is no way I’m cutting out all those petals. It took me a while to figure out a way to stamp the flowers, but I have come up with a way that is quick and efficient. I made about 10 of them today–ready to go to the heroes through OperationWriteHome. I probably have enough cards now to fill a box–I usually need about 130-150 cards. Some night this week I’ll pack them up and send them on their way. I always feel so patriotic when I mail a box full of cards!!

This is my entry for the Denami Layers Blog Hop. I decided to layer the ribbons on this card to add something different. I think it gives a different look to the card—maybe more formal than a bow.
I used five Denami products on this card: the Small Spring Flowers stamp set, Emerald Grosgrain Ribbon, Purple Rhinestones, the Three Butterflies stamp, and the Heartfelt Greetings stamp set. The patterned paper is some of my favorite from Stampin Up! I’m still trying to get over the fact that they discontinued Amethyst.
Here is the next stop on the blog hop:
Dana Seymour’s KismetArtLife blog.
This is the exact same layout as the card below it, but it has a completely different look. Interesting!! I like them both. They’re both fairly quick to make using Papertrey’s Beautiful Blossom stamps and dies, and their green polka dot ribbon. Enjoy!

Here is a really simple birthday card using Papertrey’s flower and die sets. These sets that are coupled with a die are the greatest. In fact, I probably don’t buy many stamps any more unless they have dies to go along with them. Anyway, this is the first time I made a ribbon like that, and it took me a while to figure out how to do it. The trick is to lay down one piece of ribbon with the ends trimmed already. Then take another piece and glue the ends together and lay it on top, making the two loops on either side of the flower. It was so simple once I figured it out.
This is one of my favorite color combinations. This time I added a dark green background stamp to the bottom of the card to give it some interest. And, of course, the great stamps from My Time Made Easy. I have always enjoyed using the stamps from there.
