Card Bonanza!

So I got all excited the other day & made three cards. It's my mom's birthday today so two of the cards were for her. I'm crazy about the two flower ones & was pleased with the ice cream sundae one.

I was helping Mom with a card a week or so ago & was suddenly struck by the idea that the white flowers from the Pretties kit would make the best daisies if I added Summer Sun corduroy buttons. This card has almost no stamping *gasp* but I thought it turned out great!

Ingredients:

Summer Sun textured cardstock, Whisper White - paper; Summer Sun - ink; All Holidays - stamp set; Summer Sun corduroy buttons, Pretties Kit, Styled Silver hodgepodge hardware, small oval punch, ticket corner punch, Laughter & Love white rub ons - accessories;

This next beauty uses my current favorite set: Fifth Avenue Floral!! The card was pretty but after I added the Stickles on the rose petals, the whole card came to life!

Ingredients:

Parisian Breeze Speciality paper, Baja Breeze textured cardstock, Whipser White - paper; Chocolate Chip - ink; Fifth Avenue Floral, Circle of Friendship - stamp sets; Eyelet Boarder punch, Organza ribbon, Stickles, 1" circle punch, Button Bouquet, Button Latte - accessories;

And last but not least...
Ingedients:

Close to Cocoa, Riding Hood Red, Whipser White, Pink Pirouette, Candy Lane DSP - paper; Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette - ink; Sassy Suzy, Goody, Goody Gumdrops - stamp sets: Button Bouquet, scallop circle, Stickles, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, Close to Cocoa velvet ribbon, paper piercing template, pop-up dots, Stampin Pastels, blender pen - accessories;
