Tip Top Touches of Thanks

Tick Tock…Tick Tock…the countdown is on! We’ll be saying goodbye to the 2015-2017 In Colors in two short months, so to remind everyone of how beautiful this collection is, today’s cards feature 3 of them – Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.  I felt an organic card would work best with these colors and I’ve been holding onto this set called Touches of Texture for the perfect time. So happy I bought this set! I wonder if it will make it into the new catalog?  The font of the sentiments in Rose Wonder is perfect for this style. And always pay attention to the little details – I used a sponge dauber to add Mint Macaron ink to the Very Vanilla Lace Doilies. Love it!

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:

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!

Sending Love

I just love the softness of Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon. It allows the Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder to absolutely POP against them! And I can’t say enough about the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits… they are perfect with the Sunshine Sayings stamp set. There are so many options with this bundle and you can save 10% when you purchase them together!  Don’t forget to use the Magnetic Platform and Precision Base Plate to get perfectly cut dies…and the magical Die Brush to get all the little pieces out without grief!
