Patriotic is the theme to get ready for Independence Day! What are your plans? Do you love barbeque's with friends and family? Fireworks? Or a quiet day at home? Whichever it is, enjoy your independence and celebrate! For this card the BoBunny paper really shined...
I made 50 of these all occasion cards, in the same layout, but with different colors, patterns, buttons, ribbon, and fruit. There were strawberries, lemons, oranges, cherries, and grapes. See below and my Gallery for more card ideas. It's a very simple all occasion card for those moments you need a card. See what you can make with stamps and buttons for a great monochromatic look for any occasion.

Happy Father's Day to all the Fathers out there! I made two different versions of this nautical card for my Dad and my husband who both love boats and the water. I kept it simple and flat for mailing and just used scraps for the banners.

Trains, planes, and automobiles...Oh my! Is my theme for this very simple Father's Day card. I used a piece of fourth of July pattern paper as my background and adhered it to cardstock as my base. I like 100lb cardstock or greater makes for a sturdy card base. I stamped on white cardstock with blue distress ink, and used two different size circle punches to punch out the stamped images and dark blue circles and adhered to card. Then stamped my sentiment with the same blue ink and added some bakers twine.

April showers bring May flowers and these magical flowers by Eat Cake Graphics stamps are buzzing with activity. I don't know about you...but we've had 30 straight days of rain and the flowers and trees are budding and blooming everywhere. If you're area has been hard hit by traumatic Spring weather I hope your safe and you're in our thoughts.
Here is a close up so you can see the unique mottled watercolor background, the fuzzy or mossy effect of the flower soft, and the sparkle everywhere...
This is one of my favorite cards with frogs, pattern paper, and ribbon. I’ve loved frogs for as long as I can remember and still do. So, when I saw this stamp from Eat Cake Graphics, I just knew I wanted to create something with froggie for Easter.
I stamped froggie three times and put him in motion like he’s leaping for joy...it's Spring! I stamped him on Bo Bunny double dot green dot paper and layered that over the spring flowers pattern paper from Pebbles-garden party collection. I love pink and green together, it’s very Springy. And I've been dying to use that gorgeous pink rose ribbon forever.
Then stamped the sentiment with my favorite ink, Versafine Onyx Black. And added googly eyes for a touch of whimsy. They're not just for Halloween, ya know? As my kids would say. I kept it pretty flat for mailing, but you still might need extra postage. I hope you play around with colors, spring patterns, and a touch of whimsy. And get out and enjoy this gorgeous Spring weather. ~Kim
