Joyce’s Beautiful Magic Iris Card

Joyce created a gorgeous Magic Iris card using Swan Soirée that is perfect to send love to a new mom or to thank your own mom on Mother’s Day!

Joyce placed the swans, lotus flowers and cattails around the ink blended Magic Iris ring. I love how she designed this card so that the Magic Iris is the “pond”! She added more detail to the scene with Meadow Borders and the log from Toadally Awesome!

When the iris is opened, the swan and baby appear inside!

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful inspiration with us today, Joyce!

Happy Cards for Special Occasions with Ivy

Ivy is with us today to share two totally clever cards, one for a wedding and another for a birthday!

The first card is a unique wedding card that Ivy made at friend’s request! The taking the leap pun refers to the wedding on leap day! This super fun design is great for non-leap year weddings as well! She added the custom message using Smitty’s ABCs and Black Licorice ink!

Ivy used the cute frogs from Toadally Awesome along with “congrats”! She placed the frogs in a pond made with Stitched Pond and Stitched Pond Frames. Then she added the movement with Slide on Over Semicircles!

Ivy used beautiful Shimmer cardstock for the pond and lotus flowers to give this some special occasion pizzazz!

Ivy’s birthday card uses our new birthday mini set, Year Ten! Inside this card is where all the fun happens with Pop-Up Happy Birthday and Oliver’s Stitched ABCs! I love the festive color scheme featuring Cilantro, Peacock and Sugarplum cardstock!

The happy little Year Ten cactus is so sweet! The trio look adorable framing the pop-up greeting!

Thank you so much for sharing this happy cards with us today, Ivy!

A Sweet and Pawsome Card by Christy!

Happy Sunday! Help us welcome another familiar name to the blog! We are so happy to add Christy Reuling to our talented group of blog contributors! Today she shares the most adorable and definitely “pawsome” card!

Christy combined kitties from Meow You Doin’ and Say What? Pets in a sweet pond scene created with Toadally Awesome and tiny fish from Mermaid for You!

The beautiful background was created by scribbling Zig Clean Color Brush Markers onto an acrylic block, adding some water then using them with a paint brush to watercolor on Bristol Smooth cardstock!

The punny sentiment from Meow You Doin’ is perfect for a birthday or any day! Christy stamped it in Black Licorice ink on an Everyday Sentiment Banner! Check out Christy’s YouTube channel to see a tutorial for this card.

Thank you so much Christy! Your card is so special!
