B-day gift for my MIL

This was for my MIL for her b-day. I saw this Sunflower stamp at Michaels a million years ago, and thought it was just gorgeous. This is a set of note cards and a note pad (from Target). I love the way this set turned out and can see me making a ton more of them (and some of you know how much I HATE mass producing cards, etc!!!!). All of the paper is by Stampin Up!, as is all the hardware and ribbon. The stamp is by Rubber Stampede. I stamped the image using Brilliance in Graphite Black, then I embossed it using clear EP (also by Stampin Up!). I colored it in using Copic markers, I blended these using the markers themselves because I still haven't gotten the hang of using my colorless blender (if anyone wants to come over and give me some coloring lessons...lol).
This is a close up of my coloring, not too bad I thought! There are also monogrammed envelopes. The monogram sets are from Papertrey Ink. I stamped the "B" and the circle then used my circle punch to punch it out and then glued it onto an envelope. Thanks for looking and any comments are always appreciated!

Have a great week!

This set is just beautiful! You are not alone Tangii, the colorless blender isn't really my friend yet either. Your blending with markers is marvelous!
