It's the "S" word again! LOL!

I know. I know. I've probably broken every rule die-hard cardmakers/rubber stampers have. Yes. I've used stickers again. heheheheh. But these beauties are by K & Co. This is probably why I'm so inspired by them. I've seen stickers, and then there are these K & Co stickers. They are beautiful! I made this set of cards for the May Flood Card Swap on the Stamp Shack.

This is a pocket card. I used a sentiment stamp set by Stampin Up and Boho Blossoms stamps also. I ran half of the purple "pocket" through my Cuttlebug, using a floral embossing folder. The white tag pulls out, and that is where I plan to write my greeting. I used the Stampin Up slit punch as well as a single-hole punch to create the scalloped border.

The sentiment on this card is by Heidi Grace stamps. The pink panel in the center is Bazzil Bling. I LOVE the shine on this cardstock. I used my Stampin Up wheel on the blue cardstock (background) to create the flourish pattern.

Lots of purple on this card. Sentiment is by Papertrey Ink. I may have gone overboard with the flowers on this card, but isn't it so cheerful?

Aaaahhh......yellow. I love this sentiment by Paper Inspirations. I use it a lot. I wanted the flower to blend into the background, but the layers give it enough depth to make it standout.

Finally, I wanted to create a really simple card. Simple layout, simple to create. The stamp is one of Michael's dollar stamps.
