I Love This Glitter Paste!


I decided to try one of my new products on a card today.


The sparkle on the flower (center and petals) is a product called Bo Bunny Glitter Paste. I painted it on with a small paint brush. It was very easy to use and give a nice glittery look that doesn't rub off. I'm impressed!

Plant Seeds of Friendship


I love flower stamps... and I own a lot of them! Today's card features one of them (CTMH Friendship Bouquet). I actually made ten of these cards - they are for a card swap group.



I also made a coordinating envelope for this card:







Here's the inside:



I also had an "oops" among the creating... I accidentally cut the paper too short. Note to self: Measure twice; cut once. So I adapted it a bit... and have another card to send to someone.

Card Kit Cuties #9


If you've been following along, I've been doing catch up with making cards from kits I received in a card kit group. You can see #1-8 by clicking HERE.

Today I'll show you two cards I made with a travel-themed kit that I received from Darlene. She sent a GREAT assortment of goodies - lots and lots of images (in different colors of ink), two 6 X 6 paper pads (the whole pad!), ribbon, charms, brads, and more. THANK YOU, Darlene!

Card #1










Card #2








Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used other than what was in Darlene's kit was some Recollections 110# Cream Cardstock and some Stampin' UP! Night of Navy Cardstock.
