Un-Bee-lievably Amazing!

  Veronica here with a card I created using one of my favorite TCM stamp sets:  Thanks Bee to Thee

I used the honey comb border stamp to create my background, and used three of the pattern honey combs to create a retro-looking pattern. I rarely create a card with no buttons, stitching, or ribbon but I just LOVE the way this turned out  and I hope you like it to! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello TCM Friends!
It's Sharri here with a colorful card to share with you today.
It's that time of year when spring fever starts to hit many people that are in the middle of the cold winter season - me for one! LOL!
I love the bright colors of spring and with spring fever in full swing, I decided used bright spring colors for my card.

I used the newly release Many Thanks stamp set along with the butterflies from Butterfly Kisses.  The papers are from an older Cosmo Cricket paper pack called Pixie-licious. I added an embossed panel behind the sentiment for interest.

I finished off the card with a few rhinestones to accent the sentiments and butterflies.
Enjoy your day and thank you for stopping by!

Happy Birthday

Hello!  Lindsay here with a clean and simple card to share today!  I brought out a fun little set illustrated by Karen Baker called Typically Teen.  This is a great set for making clean cards with a punch!

To begin I stamped the large paint swath onto my panel in green and added my sentiment in brown, over it.

I then took the splatter image, stamped it in a light yellow and then over stamped it with glue, to which I then sprinkled on glitter to add a little sparkle.

I hope you've enjoyed!  Thank you for stopping by today.

"Tis So Sweet

Nina here today with another card. I just love the color combo of this one: pink, red and Kraft. I used two of the recent January release sets. The sentiment is from Beautiful Hymns set. The bird is from Happy as a Lark set.

I first cut a panel of patterned paper from Authentique's Lovely Collection and adhered it on a pink card stock. I die cut Spellbinders Window #2 die on kraft and popped it up using foam dots. I decorated the window with Want2Scrap's Bling Hearts - Pink and Red Rhinestones on the top and Sleek Strips Pearls-White along the bottom.
It's hard to see on the photo, but the window is slightly propped open. A little bit of twine above the sentiment and the card is done.
Doesn't this card scream spring? I can't wait! :) Have a great weekend!

A Spring Birthday Card

Good morning!  Lin here to share a pastel birthday card with you today; it may be only January, but I'm ready for spring!

Fly Free

I love the Fly Free stamp set, and thought it would go well with these pastel papers.  I simply embossed the birdcage in white,  then framed it with a die-cut.  I stamped the sentiment in a light brown ink to keep things soft, and after putting my card together I just added some punched butterflies and a white paper rose. 

Hope you got some inspiration from my card today!  Come on back tomorrow to see a card by Nina.
