Hi, Hello, Thinking of you cards!

Hi there!

Have you ever looked at your stamps and have no plan? No idea what you’re going to make next? As I sat down to make this card I had no plan, no idea what I was going to do. So I picked up a few sets and landed on the Circle Bird set and an idea started to form. If you are every stuck or lost like was, look through your stamps and paper, you are bound to get inspired by something!

Hi, it’s Gini, and I’m here to share I bright and cheerful card, to get you in the mood for spring.  The subtle background was created by randomly stamping the Doodlebug Sweet Background stamp on the kraft paper using Orchid pigment ink.

I love adding dimension to any project. For this card, I stamped a few flower images, and then curled the edges for a realistic feel.  After I stamped the leaves, I added some machine stitching, before trimming them out of the paper.

I love the layered look of the flower grouping, and the pennant sentiment on the tag. It adds a cute touch for a pretty card!
