For Your American Hero

This all American card is from the Stamp and die set called Old Glory. Its part of a new release at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store

I colored the USA in bright red and blue copic markers. The striped paper is from Echo Park called America. Adding some red and blue cardstock completes the patriotic look.

Celebrate the Hero in your life, send a fun fourth of July card or even a Memorial Day card(a few days late).

Check out the whole release HERE. SO many fun Patriotic options!

Tulip Sympathy

Spring has sprung here in PA and we are finally getting some warmer temps! Why not celebrate spring with Tulips from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!

I was going to make this a birthday card, but instead switched the sentiment to sympathy. Always good to have a few sympathy cards on hand!

Design inspired by my friend and fellow stamper Sandi Maciver!

First up is a cute nurse card.

I definitely needed to practice hair and hats! TIP: lightly draw the hair with a pencil, then complete it with a black sharpie.

Take a peek at my practice:

Botanical House Etched Dies

This little botanical green house rocks my gardening world. Why you ask? Let me just say I have zero green in my thumbs. Zero.

The “Love Grows Here” sentiment from the FSJ Cottage Bouquet stamp set pairs perfectly with the die.

You could easily add flowers to the green house to make it more colorful!

Perfect to send the gardener in your life. Anyone with a green thumb is sure to appreciate this! You can also use it for a housewarming, thank you, or just because!
