Best Birds Poignant Thank You

My sweet daughter wanted to make a thank you card for a special person in her life (no, not me this time). It didn’t take her very long to choose the Best Birds set and she knew she wanted to use the Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment is from a retired set, but it is such a poignant one that was perfect for the occasion. The inside reads, “Always kind, Always giving, Always there”. I know this brought tears to the recipient’s eyes. Just lovely. It is so beautiful, I told her I was sneaking a photo and was going to post it on my blog. If only you could see it in real life…

Garden Impressions Day 2

Today’s card shows off the sweet side of the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack. The pinks and oranges are positively lovely with the Soft Sea Foam background and pop of boldness with the Shaded Spruce leaves. The font of the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set is flawless with the roses and fits perfectly in the die cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits. Shaded Spruce has easily become my favorite new Core Color shade of green.

If you missed yesterday’s post, you can see Day 1 here.

Abstract Sunshine

Oh, Goodness! The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is beyond gorgeous! It was created to coordinate with the Abstract Impressions stamp set and Springtime Impressions Thinlits dies. However, it is perfect with so many other stamp sets, too. The Stitched All Around bundle includes a “Sunshine” sentiment and cute circle die cut that I thought would look adorable with the DSP. And I must say, the blues and greens on this particular one make me too happy. I simply HAD to add a panel of the DSP onto the envelope flap as well. And to top it all off, Stampin’ Up! is having a DSP sale for the month of July – buy 3, get 1 free! I’ll have more details for you on July 1st.

Amazing Balloon Celebration

I am so in love with the font of the sentiment “celebrate” in the Sale-a-Bration set Amazing You. I’m foreseeing a LOT of Birthday cards featuring it! Sometimes I forget about the extra dies in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set, so when I decided on the banner in it, my eyes drifted onto the die that makes a row of circles. Perfect for that extra little pop of shine! This card makes me especially happy since it features the colors of my Alma Mater, Lakeshore Public Schools – Go Big Red!

Happy Acorns

I have had a whirlwind October. I was able to visit my niece and her family in Pennsylvania. From there, we went to upstate New York to visit my son. We decided to add in a day trip to Vermont and Massachusetts. It was a much needed vacation. The one thing I forgot, though, is that I always sneak and leave a card for my son to find after we’ve said our goodbyes. There were some items I needed to mail to him after we got back home, though, so I made sure to make him one. First I made the top card with So Saffron. Hunter advised me that it was a little too feminine and that I needed to make it with a shade of blue instead. Hence, the two cards you see. I love this DSP…it’s too bad it’s retired and I’m almost out of it. Those super cute little acorns crack me up!

Happy Acorns

Cardstock: Island Indigo, So Saffron, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper:  Into the Woods*
Ink:  Early Espresso
Lovelies:  Subtles and Regals Enamel Shapes
