For my card, I used the Papertrey Ink anniversary stamp set, Petite Pots to create a birthday card. I used a white card base, then added a piece of royal velvet designer paper and on top of that a piece of white cardstock which I blended on some moss green ink where my pots would be. Next I stamped my sentiment and die cut and stamped my pots, flowers and bird. I used honey nut ink for the pots, new leaf for the stems and winter wisteria, royal velvet, pale plum and so saffron for the flowers. I stamped the bird in so saffron and barley banana ink. I adhered all of my stamped and die cut pieces to my card, popping up the one potted flower and the bird and tied on some purple bakers twine to finish off my card.

For my card, I used the Concord & 9th stamp set, You Are Enough and did some watercoloring. This stamp set works beautifully with watercolor in my opinion. The loopy flower that comes in this set looks great stamped with solid petals as well but watercoloring it is my favorite. So I stamped the long stem flower and two piece sentiment in black palette ink on watercolor paper and used my watercolors to add color. I had trimmed down my watercolor paper so that I could add a strip of pink passion (SU) cardstock down the side. To finish off my card, I added some iridescent sequins and some gold Stickles to the center of the flower.

For my card, I used the My Favorite Things stamp set, Hug in a Mug along with the coordinating Hot Cocoa Cups Die-namics. I started out with a white card base, then used a stitched rectangle die to die cut some red striped designer paper and added a horizontal strip of chocolate brown cardstock with a white scalloped edge. Next I added with foam tape a white die cut circle with a red mat and my stamped sentiment banner. After that I die cut my fun cocoa cups and glued all of the pieces together and added them to my die cut circle. These Hot Cocoa Cups are so fun and I've seen so many cute cards and projects created with them I just had to have them.
