Any Occasion Cards

You know what I haven't done in a long time?  I haven't sat down to make a card with no real occassion in mind.  I haven't created anything just for the sake of creating, or playing with some new toy or paper, etc.  I did that tonight.  I picked up my very first pack of Paper Smooches stamps a week ago and I wanted to make a card so I could use them.  I don't have a great need for any of these cards right now, but it feels good to make something just for the sake of making something, ya know?  The design is inspired by a card created by Jackie from Rockwell Designs.  You guys know I love negative space.  I used that along with the Silhouette Sketch feature to create my focal point, a daisy bouquet that I found in the Silhouette store some time ago.  The frames are all Silhouette print and cut digital patterns.  They have had a lot of really cute designs in the store lately so this was my opportunity to play around with a few of them.  Okay, okay I will shut up - here are the cards:









Recipe:
Paper:  JoAnn's Kraft Paper, Epson Premium Presentation Matte Paper (AMAZING results with my Epson printer), Bazzill Smooth cardstock, Bazzill textured cardstock
Silhouette:  Patterns, flower (sketch) image - all print and cut


Thanks so much for stopping by!
