Here is my card I made with the digi stamps and the recipe below it….I hope you enjoy my card and be inspired to try digi stamps like I did…I promise you will have fun!

The digi stamp is the Girl Knock at Door …I use all of my water coloring pencils to color it since I don’t own very many markers (although my dream is to own some Copics soon) and then I embossed several areas of the green with green embossing powder and then I stickled most of the flowers with several colors I own mostly red, pink and yellow. Then I add a pretty pink ribbon and embellish the bow with sticky gems like I did on the right side on bottom of card.
Then I put a butterfly in the midst of that climbing greenery. I wanted to make it look old fashion and I think I accomplished that.

Thanks for checking out my card and I will have two more new cards to show you tomorrow. And of course you want to see what the Blog candy looks like since I have not posted a pic of it yet…giggles….

Thanks for stopping by…and you didn’t think I would forget blog candy didn’t you …giggles…please make a comment and leave y0ur email otherwise I will have to draw another name and please become a follower if you want and grab my button if you have a blog of your own and I would be tickled purple!! πŸ™‚

Have a blessed weekend! πŸ™‚
In His Love,
Be Inspired,

  1. Hi Kari~Well,I think you accomplished your idea with your card.It does look old fashioned to me!!!I just recently started to use water color pencils and I am having a lot of flubs but a few non-flubs…LOL!!!My passion is card making for about 5 years now.Since then I have sent out hundreds of cards to comfort a grieving family,thinking of you and some of the other occasions.I read your,"About Me" and I think you and I have been directed to the same path to walk.The sign says,"Make and send cards to those in need of a kind word".~~~~~I lost my 26 year old son,David,to cancer on Dec.2,2005.So I know how much this work of kindness is appreciated as our family got many cards of comfort when he passed.A few were homemade and those were made with love.That's my mission in David's memory…to make and send cards of comfort at just the right time for it.Kari…may you be blessed for your efforts.Sincerely,

  2. Hi Kari The first thing I noticed was the green frame around the edge of the card which gave it a sort of 3d effect for me and it certainly looks old fashioned so i think you have achieved what you wanted to. Very nice use of colours there . :0)

  3. Hi Kari ~ Oh I just adore your card. The Sue Miller stamp is so detailed, and my favorite part is how you embossed and Stickled it all pretty! I'll be back tomorrow to see the others. hugs from Texas, xo

  4. Hi I love your color theme and also the way you added that old time look to it. Great job have added you to my blogs that I follow. Hugs love and prayers love Bev
