All Occasion Card Using CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts

Hello Friends!  It is super hot here in Southern CA.  I feel blessed to be alive, with the situation we currently live in with COVID-19.  Please stay safe.

I created several cards in June or July, I think.  A friend of mine needed 3 cards; so I created 5 for her to choose from and she kept all 5.  LOL!  I love these little CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp and Thin Cuts.  They make cutting so easy for me.  I am really bad at fussy cutting.  LOL!  The thin cuts are out of stock; but the sweet stamp set is still available.  This stamp set has some really sweet sentiments with it, as well. The flowers come with this set and make it fun to create with so many options of using the flowers with the hummingbird; or the flowers by themselves, etc.

I love these colors together.  I found this die in my stash and decided to use it for a few cards.

All Occasion Slimline Card Using Conie Fong Sunflower Gnome - Double Sunflower and CTMH Products

Hello Friends!  How is everyone?  It is sure hot here in Southern CA.  I hope everyone is staying safe and having time to craft.  

I have been having fun coloring and creating using Slimline cards.  I know they aren't new; but I didn't think I wanted to use them in the beginning.  Something different is always scary at first.  LOL!  I love them now.  I am having a hard time going back to regular cards now.  I bought so many cute slimline dies; that I feel obligated to use them.  

I created this card for one of my sisters.  I had so much fun coloring and using Conie Fong "Sunflower Gnome - Double Sunflower".  I also used one of Conie Fong Sun images.  They are currently free as a member for her Facebook group.  I used her new Conie Fong "Sunflower In a Pot" image on the inside.  

I purchase PNG images when they are available; as you can upload PNG files to Cricut Design space to use your print and cut feature.  They work best with a little bigger file.  Some of mine were too small to cut from Design Space.
