I went a little overboard and made 3 cards for the "Buzz" big grin. Couldn't help myself. I love this whole set so much. The first two cards use the same stamp but in two different looks. For the third card I was itching to do some quilled dandelions...

Anyway, click on a card image to see details and descriptions of that card, and enjoy.

Thank you for these lovely cards. I bought the stamps from QuietFire, and am delighted to have inspiration from you on their use.

Loving your blue shaded backgrounds and watercolor details.
Perfect for all the quotes!

Deborah Serre said...

Love this card Yogi! The background is simple but very effective and suits it perfectly. It gives it the look of a calligrapher's watercoloured card. Your dandelions are just the perfect touch.

Just loved all 3 cards. I was especially interested in the way you used the ritz glitter with spray adhesive. I've had 2 classes with this & were only shown to use sookwang & outline stickers. This opens up so many more possibilities. Thank you! Just found your blog, and will have it in my favorites!
