Hand Penned Stepped Up …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday shared two cards that I created on World Cardmaking Day in a demonstration for my views … today, I took one of those layouts and stepped it up! Break out the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine ….

I did today’s card with a Fresh Freesia pattern from the Hand Penned Designer Series paper, and I cut out the pretty image from the card (as in yesterdays card) … but it was time to add some texture so I pulled out my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Greenery Embossing Folder and here is what I cam e up with …

The simple Fresh Freesia and white pattern on the designer paper really allows the cut out flower to become the focal point! The embossed piece of Basic White adds some fun detail and texture. I also added the Freesia In-Color Gems to the card which draws your eye all around the card.

One last thing, I had to add some Wink of Stella to the flower petals …

I think the Stella just adds to the Water Color imagery of the Hand Penned Memories & More Cards … simply pretty.

Thank you for hanging out with me today.

Happy Monday ~

Simple Sunday: Easily Penned Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday was World Card Making Day, and I spent the day with my Stampin’ Friends making cards. I began with the Hand Penned Memories & More Card Pack because they are not just for scrapbooking … the cards were great for card making and loved by new crafters!!

I’m going to share our first stamp session with you so you too can see how easy it is to use these cards to create … Cards!

The first card was created in Fresh Freesia … It’s compliments the paper perfectly! I cut out the pretty image from the card (as shown in video) Wrapped the Fresh Freesia Organdy Ribbon to the back and popped it up onto the front of the card … a few In-Color Rhinestones and the card is complete!

OK … I love this one! The Pale Papaya really makes the green on this card stand out! With the addition to the corner punch, we’ve added texture and another pop of color to our card and the gems just tie it all together.

I had so fun spending my Saturday stamping with you and sharing ideas, tips and more. Hopefully next year we can all gather in one big room and actually “make” cards together.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing a part of your Sunday with me.

Have a beautiful day ~
