Design Notes for Around the Corner Card:

The Around the Corner stamp set is so cute. There are all kinds of borders, some with sentiments, and little flowers, etc.

Isn’t it cute! After I stamped the Whisper White piece, I cut out the “happy” and “birthday” from a piece of Terracotta Tile card stock using the Well Written dies. The butterfly is one of the other dies from same set. Finally, I added just a bit of the darling Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

Well Said Anniversary Wishes

My neighbors are celebrating their 25th anniversary today. I made a card, of course, but never thought to use silver, DUH. But I think the Well Said stamp set and Well Written Dies still get the message across!

Not exactly monochromatic, but pretty close! I did add a Metallic Pearl as a nod to their silver anniversary.

 

 

Design Notes for Well Said Anniversary Card:

There are so many beautiful designer papers in the new annual catalog. Because of that, it might be easy to over look the really beautiful, Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Paper. Here’s a peek.

Many of the pages have shiny accents. The paper that I used on this card shows one of those papers. This card is pretty straightforward. I cut the “happy” and the little bird with dies from the Well Written Die set and used some Garden Green card stock. Finally, I added a little ribbon on the bottom to add some interest. I love an easy, simple card that doesn’t look easy and simple!

Sweet Baby Card for A Sweet Baby

A neighbor of mine recently welcomed a new grandson. He is the third child for one of her daughters, a son following two lovely daughters. The little ducks from Fable Friends just called out to me for this baby card.

Design Notes for Sweet Baby Card:

I just love this stamp from the Fable Friends stamp set. There are lots of ways I could have colored it but I choose to use some of my Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen. The Blender Pen is just the perfect tool to smooth out the colors. The little hearts are some Heart Epoxy Droplets that I colored with a Balmy Blue Blend (Dark).  I cut the piece out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels.

Now, are you wondering about the Designer Paper in the background? It’s from the Come Sail Away selection. Who would think that you could use that beautiful nautical paper on a baby card!

Floral Phrases Farewell

The Floral Phrases stamp set and Detailed Floral Thinlits have been in the catalog for a few years. It was pretty predictable that this year they would retire. Nonetheless, I am sad to see them go. Such lovely detail and interest. I decided to use the Thinlits for this month’s card class door prize. I also made this month’s thank you card using the Floral Phrases stamp set.

tThe card is actually CASed (Copy and share) from a recent post by Candy Rattray. I just loved it and had to make my own.

 

 

Design Notes for Floral Phrases Card and Box:

The box is just like one I made last week. Did you see my post about attending the tea and the favors I made? Check out my post here to see what I made and the tutorial for the treat box.

Here’s a close up of the box I made for my classes. I think the ribbon to close it is so pretty. The silver edge on the ribbon goes so nicely with the Silver Foil Paper behind the cut out.

Sending Hugs with Springtime Impressions

I wanted to make a special get well / thinking of you card for one of my customers. I also wanted to participate in this weeks CASe this Sketch. The Thinlits from the Springtime Impressions Bundle called out to me!

The card was roughly based on this sketch.

 

Design Notes for Springtime Impressions Card:

It was so much fun making this card! I started with the large die cut and some Mossy Meadow card stock. Then I cut another piece with some of the Floral Romance Designer Series paper and cut out three of the flowers, placing them on top of the Mossy Meadow piece. After I stamped the sentiment, I added a few flowers cut with another die from the Springtime Impressions set. I dressed things up a bit with some Metallic Pearls at the center of each flower. The last step was to add a shiny touch with some Wink of Stella.
