j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

For the love of making cards

I've been up to making a few more cards from ones I designed a while ago. I thought I've needed to start building up a better card stash again in order to have them on hand as I need them. So today, I went to a couple of different card stores, like Hallmark and Carlton Cards, to get some ideas from the ones that are being sold and it was fun. I like to do that from time to time in order to get my creative juices flowing again.
Anyway, take a peek at my cards.

Feels like Spring with Green cards:

  • Celery green cardstock from Stampin' Up
  • Lemon yellow cardstock from Bazzill used for flower punches
  • Flower punch by Fiskars
  • Rob & Bob Studio patterned paper from Provo Craft
  • Prima small blue flowers in their milk bottle line
  • Making Memories silver brads
  • light blue ribbon is from an unknown source
  • White ink along edges is Stampin' Up Craft White Ink

Warms the Heart card:

  • tan and brown cardstock from American Crafts
  • red cardstock is from an unknown source
  • Gold pigment ink is from ColorBox
  • Red pigment ink is Scarlet from ColorBox
  • Chocolate Brown ink is from Stampin' Up
  • Edging ink is from Tim Holtz Ranger Industries
  • Watercolor pencils/Chalks from Stampin' Up
  • Star brad is from Making Memories
  • Heart Stamp and saying is from Stampin' Up
I really have had fun making these. Now, I'll be working on Father's Day cards next.
