We have a great mix of cards to share with you today from our card designers.
“Thinking Of You” card, by Carina Lindholm.
The new feathers are so gorgeous and fun. So when I sat down to make this card I wanted to use one of the feathers and make it the focal point on the card. I choose a hot pink feather and decorated the feather with a few white pearls to add some elegance. And for my sentiment I used a stamp from the sand & surf stamp set.

“You Are Sweet” card, by Carina Lindholm.
When making this card I stared off by die cutting a bunch of scallop borders in white cardstock and in pink patterned paper. I adhered all the borders under the heart sticker. I tied some string around and adhered a green crochet heart. I love how well the green heart goes with all the pink and blues on the card.

“Sweet On You” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
The Kiss Me Collection is still one of my favorite collections! For my card, I created a cupcake shaped card. I used a couple different patterned papers, a sticker from the Alpha+Bits page, Designer Tape, and a Hot Pink Flower. To create the sentiment, I used a stamp from the Kiss Me stamp set and stamped it using brown ink.

“All American” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
With the last day of school and summer break starting, I just had to break out the All American collection! I combined a couple of the patterned papers with some Ciao Chip pieces, a feather, a Flag, and a Star Button. The sentiment is some stickers from the Alpha+Bits page.

“Peace. Love. Freedom” card, by Kathy Martin.
July fourth is just around the corner. I can feel it when I’m outside with temperatures and humidity on the rise. I’m starting to crave juicy watermelon, picnics, BBQ’s, and looking forward to fireworks! I also love ducking into my air conditioned craft room on a hot afternoon to do a bit of crafting with the Stars and Stripes collection!

“Congrats” card, by Kathy Martin.
Often times I like to create something different with themed lines to show their versatility. I think the Bella Blvd. Love and Marriage collection along with the crochet hearts and flowers work perfectly for a springtime cards. You can easily change the ‘Congrats’ flag sentiment for an Easter or Mother’s Day phrase. Or how about anniversary?

"Birthday Girl” card, by Wendy Wagner.
I thought it was time to create some more birthday cards, and I love the Bella Blvd birthday collections. The birthday girl card was simple but fun with the new Feathers. LOVE THEM! I chalked in the edges and added some stickles and used lots of pop dots! Kept it simple and let the wonderful pattern papers do their work!
Birthday Girl: Dancing Queen, Celebrate, Chipboard Icons; Flags: Birthday Girl 2; Crochet Hearts: Gulf; Feathers: Gulf; Cotton Candy
“Amazing Birthday” card, by Wendy Wagner.
The Birthday card was made with the Birthday Boy collection. I feel the card is universal and could go to any gender! That is what I love about Stephanie's collections that she creates for Bella Blvd. They’re so versatile.
