More to share... ENJOY!

Morning! I have more to share... :) The first card, I made two versions using different ribbon treatments. Has lots of color! Hope your weekend is going well. It was raining on and off Saturday afternoon , so that meant some stamping time! See what I come up with... ha!


ETA: Here are the directions I received from Julie's class for the Slit Punch Border. Draw a line 3/8" in on cardstock. Start punching with the slit punch, lining up the flat side of the circle on the line. Punch side by side, but not overlapping. Once you have punched all along the edge. Fold back. Now insert a different color paper strip, and you have 2 tone colored circles.

Enjoy! I'm setting up another post for Monday. Hope your day is going well and thanks for the visit.... SMILES!

Michelle :)

You have been busy Michelle! I love all of these but my absolute favorite is the third one! Love the colors and the way you watercolored the flower! Just beautiful!

WOW! Two posts in two days! Amazing... and your planning on more! I am glad you had some time for stamping! I love the blue and green card. That half circle border is SO cool. I'm going to have to figure out how to do that and have it look so even! Fabulous cretions and details!

I like the different ribbon ideas on your first two cards. You did a great job coloring the flower on the third card. I really like your side border punching on the next card. The embossed background is perfect for the image on your last card.

Michelle!!!! Hello my dear friend!!! I've missed you so much!!!

Wow, you really did put that rainy day to good use, and then some! Gorgeous cards! But, then again, you always make gorgeous cards. I love your ribbon treatments, and your background embossing, and that amazing edge treatment on the Thinking of You card. How did you do that? And, of course, there's Top Note!!!

I can't wait to scroll down and see more!

Love and hugs to you my friend! I'm glad to see you're back in the blogging world!

We have had a cold snap (not what you would call a cold snap ... but cold to me!) ... and these cards have made me feel like Spring is on the way! (wishful thinking ... but ... hey ... it's good to be positive!) Can't wait to see the next installment! TFS Michelle. Hugs to a special friend! xxaxx

Lovely cards. I particularly like the Thinking of You card, and wonder how you did the two-tone dots. Will you explain please? Many thanks.

More yummies! Love them all but I really am drawn to the water colored daylily from Fifth Avenue Floral. I haven't tried that technique yet...don't know what I'm waiting for, it looks so good! Your cream, olive and navy card is so elegant. I forget about using that slit punch...I think that's how you did that! Looks fun, too! Thanks for the inspiration!
