Flourishing Love

I have a business conference to attend about 4 hours away from home. I thought it would be nice to remind my daughter that I’ll miss her and I’m only a phone call or text away. I love the subtleness of using vellum for the butterflies and using the pearls for the body. To make it extra special, I used some DSP to make a matching envelope. I just love these colors together. So soft and pretty. The phrases in Flourishing Phrases are so diverse and they have such a lovely font.  I had decided to purchase this set in wood mount so I can easily use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure I stamp the words straight. I don’t seem to have the ability to stamp words straight just by eye-balling it. It is a wonderful tool that I turn to time and time again.  So, without further adieu, here’s the card I made for Miss Hunter:

Soft Sympathy

I debated on whether I should share today’s card with you, as it does include non-Stampin’ Up! items. I finally decided I would, though, because I do occasionally use other products.  I know you won’t be mad at me, right? This sympathy card is nicely balanced with clean lines and soft colors and makes a beautifully simple sympathy card.

Kalyn’s Shaker Card!

Yay! Kalyn received the card, so now I can share it with everyone! A super fun Shaker Card! I had a blast making this – who doesn’t love an interactive card that moves when you shake it?!? I decided to go with a clean look of a white card base and a little border of color. The diagonal stripes lend a little whimsy that is perfect for this layout. The Layering Squares framelits work like a charm to make the open frame.  And Stampin’ Up just added Foam Adhesive Strips to their already wonderful line-up of adhesives. Let me tell you. These strips are so convenient! They are 9″ long and you just cut them to the length you need – no wasting!  And no cutting a bunch of dimensionals, either. This exclusive product is a must have – and you’re definitely going to see more shaker cards from me!
