New blog title and some cards

First of all, in case you didn't notice, I changed my blog name. I think this one suits me better. Now I'm going to try to convince my son to design a cute header for me. I've hinted to him, but I think I'm just going to have to come out and ask for it!

Anyway here are some cards I made recently:

This one is for my mother in law. The flower stamp is from Unity's Oct. stamp kit of the month. The stamp was colored with Copic markers, which I am still an absolute beginner at, then cut with a classic oval Nestability. The printed paper is from K and Co. and the bottom was punched with the SU Eyelet Border punch. This punch was also used on a piece of white paper, which was placed under the printed paper. The happy birthday stamp is from Fiskars and was stamped with SU chocolate chip ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The rhinestones are Studio 18, from the $1 bin at Michael's. The ribbon is from Offray and the corner accents were done with a white Jelly Roll pen.
This next one is my mom's, who turned 84 yesterday!

This is actually the first card I've made using the Gypsy. The background is cut from Gypsy wanderings and the paper is K and Co. The flower pot and flower are from Pooh and Friends. The flower was cut 3 times and layered with foam tape. The pot was embossed using the Cuttlebug Tiny Mosaic Texture folder. The ribbon is actually a piece of white ribbon that was colored with a Copic marker. I don't know who makes the little butterfly, but it too was colored with a Copic marker. Here's a close up of the flower:
That's a lot of info for one post! Hope you enjoy them. Next I'll show you what I've been working on.
Thanks, Maria
