Playing along with the...

Wednesday, May 25, 2011


This month's theme is flowers, which suited me just fine, because I got the 2010 anniversary set: Botanical Silhouettes on Sunday.

I decided to make some thank you cards for my Sunday school volunteers & I managed to get five done last night.

For all the the cards, I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (pure poppy, ocean tides and dark chocolate), twine, buttons, the anniversary stamp set and a stamp BB: Text Style I set. I also used Bazzill cardstock (kraft) and some Fancy Pants patterned paper.






On this one, I added some clear Smooch to the centre of the flowers.




I painted some Smooch over top of the blooms on this one, too.


And had some fun with masking on this one.

Thanks for looking!
