Because they all have simple layouts, I will not go into detail on the cards… Let’s get you back to your weekend!

My first card is a “Congratulations” card which highlights two patterns from the “By the Shore” Designer paper.  The greeting comes from the “Guy Greetings” stamp set. The Dapper Denim banner under the greeting is actually a piece of the designer paper!

The simply beautiful sympathy card was created with the “Floral Boutique” Designer paper. One simple sheet of designer paper and a greeting goes a long way. It’s quick and can be either cute or elegant, depending on the paper pattern you choose.

My last card is bright and colorful and highlights 3 patterns from the “Fruit Stand” Designer paper. I used my Circle Framelits to cut out my greeting and pop it up.  I also cut the cute little flower from the designer paper and popped it up by the greeting. Something so simple really draws the eye to the focal point of the card.

Tomorrow is not promised …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So … what did you think of the video? I know, a new plate. Once I get mine, I will compare all of the options we have and share what I think works best.

I also told you I would be sharing a card that I would create using the “Flourishing Phrases” and the “Flourish Thinlits” Bundle. It is with deep sorrow that I share this card because I created it for my friends who just lost their only son this weekend. My heart breaks for them … I can’t even imagine.

I used the new “Dapper Denim” and teamed it up the Garden Green … they look really nice together. The Whisper White for the base and the greeting really makes the card pop.

I ran an extra piece of Dapper Denim & the flower die through the BigShot and then used Crystal Effects on the flower and buds to highlight them.  I’m sorry, I forgot Stampin’ Up! took it out of the catalog. You could use the “Wink of Stella” … that would look really nice and tie in the white even better!

I stamped the background Dapper Denim on Dapper Denim … I think color on color creates magic!

I must admit, I’m having a difficult time writing my blog today. My thoughts are elsewhere. Please send a prayer to my friends Karen and Andy that the good Lord wrap them in his arms and help ease their pain during this difficult time. Thank you so much

If you have any questions about today’s card / post … please comment below and I will get back to you. Again, thank you.

Enjoy today and everyday ~

The Rose …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I am sharing a special card that I created because of the passing of my Aunt. I wanted something simple yet beautiful, and I found that in the “Timeless Elegance” Designer Series Paper. It is so pretty and reminds me of old photographs.

I remembered a technique where they colored on Black & White photos, so I used the Pink Pirouette marker to color only one of the roses. My way of saying she has now entered a most beautiful place, and will be greeted by all our loved ones who journeyed there before her.

I used the shading on the paper to make my pink a little deeper, just color over that area several times until you get the desired shade.

The base of my card is Basic Gray and then the Pink Pirouette to pull out the color of the rose. I also layered a pop of Basic Black to really draw the eye to the card.

My greeting (sending sympathy and prayers…) comes from the “Petite Pairs” stamp set and has a sweet sentiment for the inside (to heal your heart).

I carried the Pink Pirouette to the inside of the card and then used Very Vanilla, it coordinates with the “Timeless Elegance” designer series paper.

You could color all the flowers in and stamp a Happy Birthday greeting on it.  I think this paper is so pretty and very, very versatile!

I have included a list of ingredients at the bottom so you can view the items separately or go to my on-line store.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

Take good care ~
