Blooming Cocktails!

Thursday, July 2, 2009

A happy Thursday to you all!

I have not one, but two quick cards for you today! Both are using the brand new stamps from There She Goes.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I just have to gush again about how nice the line work in this Bloom set is. I literally sigh out loud every time I stamp out one of the images! I don't know if it's the varying line weights or the image themselves, but this set just makes me happy all over! *grin*

As soon as I got this set, I knew I wanted to color this magnolia blossom (or is it a Dogwood?) in white with a pink center. It just seemed like the most obvious choice. The stems were colored with Almost Amethyst. Then the Cool Caribbean background set the whole branch off just nicely.

I created this next card last week (before I made Sydney's birthday card with the same paper) because I immediately saw this layout with all the cocktails from the 'Life's A Beach' set. I wanna be where ever it is that those drinks are being served! Don't you? Yes please! LOL

Both cards were colored with SU reinkers and an aquapainter. I added some Stickles to the drinks for some added sparkle. I think I need some of that glimmer mist for my cards. Can anyone suggest a place to buy it?

Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow I have a July 4th card for you. See you then!

Gosh, I LOVE both of these cards (your coloring on the flowers is so beautiful & soft), but I LOVE the citrus one best! It's sooo adorable and it's so creative! Those little drinky-poos are just calling out to me. :-)

I love both these cards. In fact, I could use a drink right now! your drinks look so real! I love your flower though I think it might possibly be a cherry blossom as well. they look remarkably similar to a stamp I have that shows Asian cherry blossoms. the one I used for Suki's kimono card. I love the layout you chose too!
