Remember the Fallen … Memorial Day

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have a special card I would like to share with you. It’s my way of saying “Thank You” and pay my respects for those who have fought and served our country … but did not make it home.

Today is the day we pay our respect for those who gave all to give us the freedoms we enjoy.

A simple “Thank You” card made with the Pleasant Poppies stamp set…

000_2269

I embossed them in black and colored them in with the new Watermelon Wonder maker… The base card is also in the Watermelon Wonder. I was going to use the Calypso Coral, but this was closer to the color I picture poppies as.

The “Thank You” comes from the “Celebrate Baby” stamp set. I love this set and I’m sorry it is on the discontinued list.  I added a Vintage Brad to give my card a little brass, and to finish it off … I simple spritzed a bit of black to create a more interesting background.

Enjoy your Memorial day … and take a moment to remember those who paid the ultimate price to keep our country free.

Thank you for joining me today.

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

Showcasing Embossing Folders with beautiful cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

So … what did you think about the cards I shared with you yesterday? Did you notice 2 new ones? Yes, I added two, never before seen cards!

Today I’d like to share the details of those cards with you. Let me start with the wedding card …

000_1967

I used the Beautifully Baroque folder on Pool Party card stock. The “doubled” butterfly is done with vellum paper and the new Butterfly Thinlits Dies. The addition of the pearls really makes the butterfly stand out.

The salutation comes from the stamp set “Big News” and was stamped in Pool Party.

The second card was the “Baby” card …

000_1970

This one is done in Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray and showcases the “Zig Zag” folder. The greeting comes from the “Celebrate Baby” stamp set. I love the combination of stamps that allow you to make many different types of baby cards.

I finished off the card by layering the flowers punched from the Boho Blossom punch.

Don’t forget … the folders are ON SALE through Monday, February 2nd. Click on any of the items below for more information.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you have a beautiful day ~
