Lotus Blossom

The Lotus Blossom stamp set is a beautiful triple stamp set that can be used with one or multiple colors of ink.  It is gorgeous either way. I've seen it all over Pinterest and just had to give it a try.  Any sentiment will work with this card for many occassions.

Wisteria Swallowtail

I have to say that the Swallowtail background stamp is absolutely fabulous to work with.  Brian King created this design using Sahara Sand.  I thought to try it using Wisteria Wonder.  Any color would due for this monochromatic design.  Thanks Brian for your inspiration.

Love & Sympathy

Sympathy cards are not on my top 10 list of cards to make but essential to have on hand when needed.   This beautiful card met a two-fold purpose and thank goodness it was not for a purpose  intended.  My  stampers requested a sympathy card and just loved making this one.  Wisteria Wonder is such a soothing and peaceful  shade.  I always try to listen closely to my customers comments and try harder to remember them. 

The second purpose for this card was for my monthly challenge with the Pieces of Heart Stampin’ UP! group.  There were some lovely cards made for this task and I always enjoy spending time with my peeps.  They are the best!!
