Tailored Fresh Pears

Today I’m sharing with you the thank you cards for my Birthday gifts. It’s been awhile since I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board and I sure have missed it! It’s so fun making envelopes to match your cards. Here’s a set of 6 cards with envelopes that only use 2 sheets of cardstock and 2 sheets of Designer Series Paper (DSP), along with some scraps of neutral. The card bases are cut 3” x 8” and scored at 4”. This adorable size requires a 6” square piece of DSP to make an envelope. So, we’re using one full piece and half of the second for the envelopes. That leaves half a sheet to cut front layers. These cards feature some retired products, but I just love pears (especially Anjou!) and wanted to use the lovely Fruit Stand DSP.

Epic Rainbow of Sneakers

Today I got my hands on the Stampin’ Blends…and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Definitely a learning curve, but one I’m willing to take the time to master! Below is an assortment of adorable 3” x 3” cards.  I used standard Whisper White for the stamped piece, but decided to use the Thick Whisper White for the card base. It really makes a difference.  I wanted to give several Blends colors a try and thought the sneakers would be fun for my club member thank you cards (I like to give a thank you to each of them with every order). I feel like Epic Celebrations isn’t getting the recognition it deserves…it’s a darling set and I can’t wait to make a card with the headphones and guitar! It’s part of the Sale-a-Bration going on right now, so the only way you can get your hands on this  set is with a minimum purchase of $50 and the stamp set is FREE!

There’s even a set of matching dies called Celebrate You that are available, too!

Painted Harvest – More Than Sunflowers

I was so excited perusing through the new Holiday Catalog…and immediately fell in love with the gorgeous hand-painted style of the sunflowers in the Painted Harvest set. I simply HAD to have it! Imagine my happiness when I started seeing people posting samples with non-traditional colors!?! I decided to try a combo using bright, fun, summery colors…and I am thrilled with the final outcome!

After stamping my flowers, I began to assemble my card. To my surprise, I realized I used colors in which I did not have any matching ribbon. So, I pulled an oldie-but-goodie technique out of the bag and colored the White Bakers Twine with Berry Burst ink! I stamped a flower in both the corner of the envelope and the inside layer. Try not to smile when you look at these flowers!

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.
