I hope this finds everyone doing well and staying cool!!! Man has it been hot! Not this hot since the year my mom was born in 36.
I have 2 cards to share with you today. I hope you like them.
But first, I wanted to do something special for you guys. You've been so sweet and kind to me. With my limited time on the computer you are still with me and you don't know how much I appreciate that. I haven't gotten to any blogs in so long and I hate that. I so miss the incentive and the love!!!! Seems my priority anymore is a 2 hour nap, daily. Seriously.
So I have some blog candy for you as my thank you. It's a spring release from Memory Box, Twirling Vine Frame Die. You can see how I used this die below in card #2.

On to the two cards I have to share with you today.
I created this pink card by stamping the background image twice, onto white cardstock and embossing with clear detail embossing powder. I then colored over the the first image with TH Distress Inkpad in Spun Sugar using a large dauber. With the second image I cut out the flower and leaves, coloring it in with smaller daubers. Spun Sugar and Shabby Shutters for the leaves.
This is one my favorites cards to make, white on white. Don't ya love that Trailing Vine Frame. Its so fun. If you get one or win my blog candy, just be careful releasing it from the die so you don't stretch it out of shape. It comes out really easy though, just don't pull it all out of the die from one side.
I also used Martha's 3 in 1 Butterfly and Rose Leaf Punches. Punch Bunch Large and Medium Cherry Blossom Punches along with the Small and Micro/Tiny Sun Punch.
I'm having a class this Saturday for the White on White Card and the Cherry Blossom Tag. The tag uses the same Cherry Blossom Punches, adding the Starburst punch from McGill. The branch is the Grove Branch from Memory Box. The tag is a die from Die-Namics (All My Favorite Things) The Cherry Blossoms are punched from Vellum.
