Beautiful and Sweet cards from Dana Warren and Pam Brown!

Hi There!!

Today I have a super cute card that I just love how it turned out!! I really wanted to use the cute cupcake image from Bella Blvd Kiss Me set, but not sure what I was going to do with it. But it really came together as I used what was already on my craft table! I already had the die, fabric, trim and markers out, and it easy to add some sticker and pattern paper to get my complete card!!

Today I have a little card with a cute way to announce you are expecting! I was in the mood to fussy cut when I made the card, but obviously if you are making a few to mail you could use markers instead of pattern paper!

Good morning! Pam here today to share a card I created using the Licensed Jillibean Soup Large Chilled Cucumber clear stamps. I loved the butterflies in this collection, so I wanted to focus on those:

Butterfly Kisses, Butterfly Wishes card by Pam Brown

I stamped the large butterfly in the center, a medium one on the bottom, and a small one on top. Then I filled the spaces with a butterfly die-cut and stamped the sentiment. I used ink colors that matched the die-cut, so there are pretty pops of color running down my card.
