Another card set...

Hey, there.

Quickly sharing - drowning in work right now.  This is another card set I made for a Chrirstmas gift for my mother-in-law.  She loves daisies and the color pool, so these seemed perfect for her.  I colored the flower with Copics and then added some glitter pen to the center of the flowers.  These look soooooo much better in real life.

011010 Daisy Cards
Supplies: Hero Arts Daisy and notecards, Papertrey Ink greetings, Neenah paper, Copic Markers, glitter pen, black Memento ink

Also, I have been asked a lot about which specific Copic colors I use on projects.  I haven't kept track up to date, but will from now on when I create things.  Sorry!

People often also ask about when I find the time to do card sets like this.  Ask my husband - I can't sit still.  If we go to my mom's for dinner, I bring stamped flowers and color while we chat.  If we drive across town to our church, I cut out flowers as we drive.  I am always staying busy, and cards like this can be done in free moments here and there. 

And, of course, some links for you.  There are some good ones...

  • lovely cards:  HERE and HERE and HERE.
  • Such a clever use of a border punch HERE.
  • Fab ribbon tutorial HERE.
  • THIS is so pretty.  Everything she does is, though!
  • Sweet page HERE by Stephanie.

OK... off to work.  Please keep your cards coming for the card drive for these sick kids.  Valentine cards are welcome!

Hugs.

Lovin' these cards!!! You continue to AMAZE me with your creativity!!! TFS!

that is so funny- I never would have thought of cutting in the car! LOL

I am trying to stay away from Copics, but it's hard when I see what you do with them :) Wonderful set of cards!
Thanks so much for linking to my tiny tags :)

Just LOVE your cards. I am going to HAVE to try my hand at making a set of cards!!
Thanks for the links.... they were great.

amazing - these cards are great!

Love the daisies! Ha, I am trying to do coloring and cutting all the time, too! Last week I was sitting in our bed with my husband, watching a movie and cutting out flowers - next morning I couldn`t find my scissors (sharp, small, bowed ones)... and found them in my bed!

Hugs,
Vanessa

What a beautiful set of cards.

If I would try to cut flowers in the car they would look mangled, I'm impressed you can do that.
Lovely card set.

Hi!

Just wanted to let you know I love all your work and that I think it's great Colin is getting Spanish at his age! I live in Belgium, and since no one in the world knowd Dutch, and there are three official languages in this country (that is smaller than most American states), most people here speak at least two or three languages. It's really usefull and very important in someone's development and understanding of the world. Anyway, I'm rambling, but just wanted to let you know; great job!

thanks for sharing all the great links ... i may have never come across these fantastic blogs and projects in the great big world of blogland! :)

Love your links....I like to keep busy like you too...the creative mind does not rest easy.....

Beautiful cards. TFS:)

LOVE your cards, Jennifer! I can just imagine what they look like in real life. :)

Beautiful set Jennifer. Something we dread making but is so necessary. TFS!!!

Jennifer your cards are lovely.
Thank you for other sites to see wonderful cards.

I hope your week gets better. I am looking forward to seeing your projects. CHA is just around the corner too.

By the way did you see Tim's new ink colors? I see some great colors to play with.

Take Care

These cards are cute. And really great links today.

But yikes! Cutting in the car? I'm afraid if I did that some part of my image, or a finger, would be missing when I was done--kudos to you!

so simple and perfect! You sound like me, still working even in the car =) i love it though!

Pretty card set. I'm making butterflies today from your inspiration cards. I visited all the sites you posted and saw some wonderful things. Thanks for sharing. You are a real sweetie. Happy Day!

thanks so much for the inspiring links, again... and for sharing how you get so much done! i know what you mean about not being able to sit still. every week we have a game night, and i have to have something to do with my hands between turns. (it also keeps me from snacking the whole time!!) i'm going to have to start working in the car, too ;-)

what lovely set of cards. My fave is the butterfly set,!!!!

What a pretty card set--a perfect gift. I have to start carrying some coloring and cutting with me too!

What lovely cards. I am enjoying seeing the new Hero Arts stamps in action.

you're right! instead of doing them all at once! simple yet so pretty!

I think these cards are adorable! I have to say I am jealous of your time management skills :)

I am always searching for really special sympathy cards, and the simple single daisy is just beautiful.

Love this idea. So pretty and simple but perfect for a sympathy card.

So very pretty! Thanks for sharing!
