Simply Sunday: True Friend Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I’m having fun making lots of card samples for my upcoming Mini Catalog Launch party. I hope you can join me … but till then, I have a pretty card to share with you today. I found the layout on Pinterest and it reminded me of a picture, framed and hanging on the wall.

What better designer paper than the FINE ART FLORAL Designer Paper with it’s “actual” painting design ….

The brush strokes come alive in this pattern. I matted the designer paper with Night of Navy to pull out the color from the paper. The larger piece is Mossy Meadow and acts as a frame which creates the picture affect. I chose Basic White as my card base which pulls out the white in the paper and really makes the designer paper POP!!

This picture really allows you to see the brush strokes in the designer paper… it gives you the appearance of texture. I added some texture to the card by adding the Elegant Faceted Gems, it also brought out the white in the designer paper.

The greeting was stamped in Night of Navy to give a nice flow of color, the sentiment is from the Garden Wishes Stamp Set and it completes my card.

If you like this card … wait till you see what I have in store for you tomorrow! Same layout … well, I don’t want to give it away, you’ll have to come back.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thank you for taking time out to stop by today.

Simply Sunday: Simply Dandy!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today’s Simply Sunday looks at the Dandy Garden Suite from the New Mini (Occasions) Catalog. I will highlight the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack and the Cards & Envelopes! Talk about simple!

We will begin with the Cards and Envelopes … already printed to give you a head start, all you would really need is to add a sentiment and you’d be done!! But .. I didn’t stop there, I decided to add some of the embellishments from the Memories & More Card Pack.

You will get 20 card bases and 20 matching envelopes in the card & envelope kit (154301). Next I chose the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack … it includes 50 double sided cards in 3 different sizes, plus 4 sticker sheets!! The adhesive backed elements have 2 sheets of 2 different designs.

Although these have adhesive backs, I wanted them popped up so I used the Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment from the Garden Wishes Bundle (156220) which contains the Garden Wishes stamp set. All of these items and more are included in this super suite … the Dandy Garden Suite.

All of these items will be available on Tuesday, January 4th! If you have still not received your catalog … please contact me to set up a time to “pick it up”. If yours comes in the mail later … pass it on to a friend!

Thank you for stopping over today to check out my blog.

Happy Sunday ~
