I just want to thank all the demonstrators who share their techniques and ideas on YouTube and Pinterest.  I have learned so much from them and been inspired by their work.  Thank you!

Birthday card

     This birthday card is made with paper, the decorative dots embossing folder, the Label love stamp/punch set and the Simply Sketched stamp set from Stampin' Up. Oh yes, the circle behind the sentiment is punched with the 13/4" circle punch from Stampin' Up. The doily is from a Martha Stewart package and the bow is made with the Martha Stewart punch.  The flower is heat embossed with silver embossing powder and then colored in with Old Olive, Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush Stampin' Write markers from Stampin Up. 

Wetlands Birthday card

     I made this birthday card using the Wetlands stamp set once again.  I really like that set!  It is so much fun to use and color in and do different things with it! 

Reflection post it note holder

     After watching a few tutorials on the reflection technique I finally tried it and was quite happy with how it turned out.  I am using this as my contest prize on my Facebook page Rose Hope Designs for the most Likes, Shares and Comments.  The measurements for this one are the same as the previous one. 

Wetlands Post it note holder

     This is a post it note holder for 4" x 6" post it note pads.  I started with a piece of blue card stock cut to 91/2" x 61/4" and scored at 41/4", 45/8" and 5" along the 91/2" side.  I used gray textured paper for the mat and the band across the front is embossed with the wood embossing folder from Stampin' Up.  The stamped image is done with the Wetlands stamp set also from Stampin' Up!  Thank you  to all the demonstrators I was able to learn from. 

Spanish birthday card

    I made this birthday card with a Spanish sentiment for my daughter who has been spending a considerable amount of time learning Spanish and has toured through Central America and South America.   

Easter gift card holder

     Here is a gift card holder I made for my son and his wife for Easter.  I had made it awhile ago but just colored in the cloth, cross and circle behind the cross before sending it to them.  

Gift card holder

     I made this gift card holder for my daughter-in-law for her recent graduation from college.  I used the fancy fan embossing folder, paper, and sentiment from Pure Gumption stamp set by Stampin' Up.  

Graduation card

     Here is a graduation card I made for my daughter-in-law.  I wanted to make one that I had not seen before so I decided to put this one together.  It is similar to the triple stamping technique but instead of stamping all three white pieces I embossed the 2 bigger pieces together with the fancy fan embossing folder and punched the corners with a punch given to me by my sister.  The front panel was stamped with a sentiment from Pure Gumption stamp set.  

Easter cards

     It has been a while since I have shared some projects so I will start with this Easter set made with Simply Sketched stamp set, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe paper from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment, and punches used for it and the fancy fan embossing folder are also from Stampin' Up!
