Wildflower Silhouette Quilted Pieces

These are three wildflower silhouettes that I've been working on for awhile.  They are still works in progress as I intend to add more hand and machine stitching to them.  I also have to decide whether they will be pillow tops, wallhangings, or something else.  I am thinking I may do more with other wildflowers--lupine maybe next.

Cards featuring a new stamp/die set from Memory Box exclusively for Simon Says Stamp

These are two of the cards I made for the Memory Box blog--Outside the Box--that feature a stamps/die set from Memory Box for Simon Says Stamp for their Stamptember event.  Today is the first time this set is being shown--on the Memory Box Blog, on the Simon Says Stamp Blog, Instagram, Facebook...Everywhere, including here on my blog.

The Memory Box Design Team is so excited to announce that we are participating in the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember event.  We have partnered with Simon to release an exclusive stamp and die set that will be available while supplies last.  We encourage you to visit the Simon Says Stamp blog to see lots of ideas for using the stamp set.  Hopefully you will be as excited about the new set as we are!

And here's one more card I made!

For all three cards, I stamped the image in VersaClair Shady Lane ink on off-white cardstock.  I used a waterbrush to pick up ink colors from Distress ink pads to paint it in a variety of fall tones.  I then cropped the images and mounted them on fall papers and then onto off-white notecards.  I also stamped and painted images from the set on the envelopes.
