My Heart Blooms

I love the periwinkles of lilacs, lavender and hydrangeas.

I stamped, colored with Prismacolor Pencils & blended with Gamsol, then fussy cut the flower out. I popped it on adhesive dots, along with the beautiful sentiment. The butterfly was given to me by a good friend. I colored it to try and match the flower. I put a simple strip of Washi tape down the left side and some tiny pearls below the sentiment.

Thanks so much for looking!

CAS Dragonfly

This is a very quick, clean and simple (CAS) stained glass dragon fly image card with smaller dragon fly inside, and two simple sentiments that pack a lot of meaning.

Colored with Sakura 'star' glitter pens. If you have not colored with these pens yet, don't wait!

Entered into Outlawz challenge, CAS cards

Gold embossing and coloring with Perfect Pearls


First, stamp image (butterfly) with VersaMark, sprinkle gold embossing powder over, then heat emboss. Let cool for a few minutes, then stipple your choice of Perfect Pearls (I used plain white pearl shimmer, and the pink to create an opal finish) over the butterfly. Brush off excess. Cut butterfly out.

I stamped a lacy border to the bottom of a piece of iridescent, speckled vellum, then heat set it. Attach to ivory cs. Attached all the layers to pink cardstock base.

Added ribbon and adhesive backed pearls. Stamped sentiment onto Spellbinders lacy oval nestie. Cut out larger oval from pink pp and mounted lacy oval to this. Applied pop dots to sentiment and to butterfly.

Stamped lacy borders inside the card.

Thank you for looking! Aloha, Rosy

Chilling in Summer

You have to love House Mouse stamps - this lil guy is very 'cool.'
Distressed look - sponge colors on edges, use raffia or cords, and old font sentiments.
Copic marker colors with shading, and Stickles to glass for frost.

This is a bit distressed, retro, on the beach scene. thanks so much for looking - aloha, rosy

Diagonal Triple Pocket Happy Card

This really did start out as a double pocket card, but ended up as a triple pocket on the diagonal card. So please ignore the third 'card' - I truly did not want to waste a whole pocket. They are multi-folded on the diagonal folds.

I used a circus theme (balloons, clown, 'teddy' bears) and the multi color polka dot cs and ribbon. Should bring a smile to someone's heart !!

Thank you for looking!!! with aloha hugs, Rosy

Nature Therapy - Goodnight Sun

Who doesn't love the sunset (rise)? I just have to live by the ocean.... a lake, river or a pond just doesn't do the same for me. So here is a sponging technique that's very easy to do, combined with a handmade charm (Cut a circle shape from chipboard, cover with VersaMark, then Perfect Pearls, Hair Spray, then Glossy Accents to both sides Air dry overnight. Punch with Cropadile, and put in an eyelet, string it up and tie to card). You can make custom colors and shapes for your paper projects.

Stamp set by Theresa Momber "Aloha," available at GinaK Designs.
Cardstock 120# Pure Luxury from GinaK Designs.
Inks by Memento - Canteloupe, Dandelion, Grape Jelly, Tuxedo Black.
White opaque pen for waves. Black twine to hang the charm, and gold crystal bling. Cuttlebug 'tatami mat' embossing folder to yellow shiny background paper. Brilliant gold to edging of card to tie it together a bit more.
Aloha, hugs, thank you for looking! Rosy

Swing or "K" Card :)

These are a lot of fun - you can find YouTube videos how to make them, so I won't reinvent the wheel.

I loved using the bright colors, all the panels you can decorate on, it folds into an A2 size :D yet opens up huge to impress (I hope).

Thank you so much for looking! Aloha, Rosy
