Finally Friday “My Friend” …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you have been enjoying the card parade from the Ornate Garden Suite … today is the last day from this group I will be posting.

Before I share the last of the cards, let’s go back and take a look at the other cards that I shared this week ….

Monday: Thanks … (View Post Here)

Tuesday: Triangle Fun Fold Floral …. (View Post Here)

Wednesday: Going Gold … (View Post Here)

Thursday: A Z-Fold with layers …. (View Post Here)

It’s kind of fun to see all the cards on one page, however … I’m not going to wait you wait any further! I wanted to share another of the “foil” specialty designs included in the Ornate Garden Designer Specialty Paper …

I was not sure what color I wanted to use with the Gold, so I googled “what compliments “metallic gold” … and of course they said black, also a coral, however I went with the Navy, Night of Navy in Stampin’ Up! colors. I think it adds a warm richness to the card.

I also wanted to share with you some of the other “layering” dies that coordinate with the pretty little pattern I like to use. I cut out the center of the largest die cut (the one that surrounds the design) but you would not have to. I thought it lightened up the layering a bit, and highlighted the Navy.

Here is a close up ….

Once die cut and attached to the card, I added some Night of Navy Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels collection. One of the Rhinestones also anchors my greeting, which was embossed in gold on Vellum cardstock and punched out with the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (two designs on one punch!).

I hope you have enjoyed my parade of cards this week, I will be back tomorrow with another new stamp set to share with you.

Have a wonderful day ~

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card to share with you that has the beautiful “Falling in Love” Designer Series Paper.  This papers design also has the “Bokeh” look and I’m teaming it up with the “Dragonfly Dreams” bundle …


My card has the designer paper blocked matted with a piece of Pear Pizzazz and our medium sized dragonfly nestled right in the center! I cut the dragonfly out of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and let the sparkles help highlight that beautiful paper.

I mounted that directly onto a piece of Blushing Bride after stamping it it with my greeting. I was thinking of a friend when I made this card, she loves dragonflies   This piece was then popped up with our Stampin’ dimensions and placed on a Pear Pizzazz base.


Not all cards have to be layered with stuff, sometimes it’s all in the message … To a Wonderful friend.

Thank you for checking in on me today and can’t wait to see you tomorrow.

Have yourself a terrific Tuesday!
