January Guest Designer, Gloria Stengel back with some final projects!

Hello, again! It is Gloria Stengel with you today, sharing my last Guest Designer post for January!

I made two spring time cards for you, using The Rubber Cafe' - Grater Floral (G-794) and Hand-picked Floral (H-975) stamps.

First up is this bright and fun card using the Grater Floral stamp.

I used fresh and pretty papers for my card. I wanted to give you all that breath of spring since many of you are in the grip of winter and are probably longing for spring! (I am in San Diego, where it is always spring or summer!)

I stamped the image onto white cardstock and colored it with alcohol markers. I love the simple design of this set. I have a passion for wildflowers, preferring them to roses or other "fancy" flowers.
I finished off the inside of the card with a sentiment from the Fabulous Phrases (J-1095) stamp set.

For my second card, I used the Hand-picked Floral stamp.

I used the same papers for another spring-themed card. I love the pink on this one!

I colored the image with alcohol markers.

I finished the inside again with the Fabulous Phrases stamps.

I hope you enjoyed my post today! Thanks to The Rubber Cafe and DT Coordinator Karen, for having me as a guest this month!
