Eclectic Wisteria Twist

The more I use Lemon Lime Twist, the more I love it…and it is so pretty paired with the soft Wisteria Wonder. This card features Designer Series Paper from the first Sale-a-Bration brochure, which is currently available.  The stamp set is from the Sale-a-Bration second release, which will be available for you to earn from February 16 – March 31. It is such a versatile set with all the background pieces. Definitely a must-have!

Happy Early Caffeine Burst

A friend’s Birthday is right around the corner and I felt the Coffee Cups framelits would be perfect for her. I’ve been using up a lot of my Designer Series Paper lately in my efforts to #cutitdonthoardit, but I was really keeping a tight grip on this particular sheet of coffee rings. I just love it as the background and I’m so glad I used it, along with some Color Theory DSP for the cup. There’s a lot of dimension going on here, as I popped up the Crumb Cake oval, the cup, the sleeve and the lid. I think it allows the thickness of the Bitty Bow to fit in quite well. The Magnetic Platform is a dream come true, cutting out the shapes without the dies moving on me. I hope my friend likes her card as much as I enjoyed making it!

P.S. Big thanks to Hunter for telling me to put the ribbon behind the oval. I struggled a little with that placement!

Simple Touch of Sympathy

Unfortunately, there are times in our lives that we need to make sympathy cards. I prefer floral cards with a small spot of color. I enjoy sponging color onto the wooden Touches of Nature Elements. Just make sure you protect your table. Use a scrap of paper and sponge onto the wooden piece while it’s laying on it. If you try to hold it while sponging, the ink will not cover it completely. This card also uses a couple retired products, but you can always substitute similar ribbon and Designer Series Paper.

Stamp and Ink Free Petal Garden, Part 6

Welcome to Part 6 of my Petal Garden cards.

Today we wrap up this stamp and ink free series with a big, bold rose from the Memories & More Card Pack. It’s a die cut sticker adhered to Pool Party Cardstock, which was die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits and a Calypso Coral scalloped circle from the same die set. I wanted a little bow, but didn’t want to wrap the Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine around the whole card front. So, I made a quick quadruple looped bow and adhered it with a glue dot.

Stamp and Ink Free Petal Garden, Part 5

Welcome to Part 5 of my Petal Garden cards.

Today’s cards also feature cards with lovely sentiments front and center. Again, we have the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch on the first card, but only peeking out of the left side. It makes a nice accent. The second card has the sentiment popped up with the Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine “anchoring” it to the top and bottom.
