Gardener’s Card for Any Occassion

My favorite spring set is Garden from the Heart. I used Watercolor Wonder Crayons and the Blender Pens to color the images which I stamped with the Stampin' Up!s Basic Brown Classic Stampin' Pad.

Fancy Flower Rose Matchbox for Mother’s Day

This little rose matchbox is the perfect holder for jewelry, chocolate, money, or a message for your Mom, wife, sister, special aunt, friend, teacher, etc. I have seen many 3-D flowers using different punches, however, this is my favorite so far. I do not know who to credit for this idea since I have seen many different versions. If you are the original creator, please let me know and I will be glad to give you credit. All I have written down is the cuts on the fancy flower, no other instructions, so I have typed how I made the flower and the link to directions is given below.

Tip: Distress the card stock by rubbing it back and forth over the edge of a desk, counter, etc. to break the fibers so you can shape it easily.

Baby Giggle in her Shades of Spring Easter Outfit

I created my Baby Giggle card for the SUDSOL Design Challenge #83 (SDC83). The challenge was to use the ornament punch for anything but it's normal use! My card was inspired by Gretchen Barron's Garden Giggles (bugs). So I decided to create a Baby Giggle and here she is:
