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!

Peachy Prayers

Two friends of mine recently underwent surgery. I wanted to make them cards and I knew that Peekaboo Peach was the color I wanted. I just love the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper and thought the smaller peach background was lovely. I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum to maximize the sentiment.  The Peekaboo Peach enamel shape heart was perfect.  Using the 3.5″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecards just adds to the adorableness.  Hugs and prayers to my invalids!

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.

Winkin’ at the March Club Card

My super fun group The emBOSSing Queens met for our stamping club this evening. I was so excited to share the gorgeousness of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush with them – it is beyond description!  I have been seeing a lot of cards with this layout, so please don’t think I’m taking credit for it. My Pinterest board gives it away!  This card has the stamp embossed in gold on watercolor paper, then I used the Aqua Painter medium brush to watercolor in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. After those colors were dry, I went over it with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  I just love all the sentiments available in the Rose Wonder photopolymer stamp set, too. If there’s only one stamp set in the Occasions catalog that you can afford to buy, definitely make it this one! Be sure to stamp your photopolymer stamps on a Stampin’ Pierce Mat. That will give it the extra cushion that photopolymer stamps don’t have (if you look at clear mount stamps and wood mount stamps, you’ll notice there’s a foam pad).  What you’ll get is a nice, crisp image.  We end the evening with a matching envelope with the leaf outline on it. It’s a nice touch that brings it all together.
