Flourishes Cards

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 5:38 pm

Hi Everyone,

Here are two cards I made using the stamps from My Time Made Easy. I love their stamps, and now I can cut out the flowers first using their cutter designs, then stamp them using different colors. It’s such a nice idea, and a great time saver.

I used Apricot Appeal from SU! and Spring Rain from Paper Trey to decorate these. And, of course, other than the sentiments, which are from SU!, the stamps are from My Time Made Easy. I just love these cards, and hope the heroes who send them love them just as much.

Here’s another one that I made using So Saffron from SU and Old Olive for the greeting. You will notice there is no bow on this one, but the flower is two layers, and popped up using pop dots.

Purple Green Thought Card

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 11:40 pm

Hi Everyone,

More purple and green again today, although the shades are definitely different. The purple is more like a periwinkle, and the green is a deep olive. Still one of my favorite color combinations.

Hi Everyone,

The floral paper is from a book that had lots of patterns in it from PaperWishes. It just happened to be the right colors for today. The sentiment is from SU! and the ribbon is a dark olive from Michaels.

Purple/Green Thought Card

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday was a really busy day with the OWH Bloghop. I made it through about 80% of the blogs, and plan on finishing the rest this evening. There were some sites I ended up spending way too much time on, checking out everything they’ve posted recently.

It’s also been so nice to get so many great comments. Thank you to all who took the time to say such nice things.

For some reason, I was in the mood today for a card that was cheerful and elegant, all at the same time. Usually the color combination of purple and green fits that description. I ended making quite a few of these already today–I think about 18 so far. I also love the way the stamps from My Time Made Easy stamp. That’s where the flourish and flowers are from.

I used SU! Old Olive ink and cardstock, and Lavender Lace ink. The sentiment is from SU!’s most recent sentiments, and the ribbon is from Michael’s.

This is a pretty simple card to make, since I love “Clean and Simple.” Hope you like it.

I have been making cards for our heroes for about a year, and what a great experience. I am so thankful for all those who work behind the scenes making all this happen. I am also planning on posting a “card a day” this year, so if you like my cards, please bookmark and come back often to get some great ideas.

This card turned out so great–I love the purple/red combination. The flourishes are from My Time Made Easy and the purple polka dot paper is from PaperTrey Ink. I printed the sentiment on my computer since I didn’t have a stamp. The red bow is from my stash from Michael’s.

This is the same card using the brown polka dot/red combination. I saw this combination a lot at Christmas time, and thought it makes a nice masculine card.
