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!

You’re the Best Butterfly

I am continuing on with my personal pledge to #cutitdonthoardit with my Designer Series Paper. Here we have a sweet card that uses a small flower print from Whole Lot of Lovely DSP with the bold statement from the You’re Delightful Hostess set. It strikes a perfect balance! And we have an adorable butterfly looking over it all.

Pain Stinks

The Foxy Friends stamp set and coordinating Fox Builder punch are so versatile and makes it easy to put together animals other than just foxes. A gentleman at my church has missed the past two Sunday services because he is experiencing bad hip and leg pain. I want him to know he’s missed and that I’m praying for complete healing. I thought a fun card would give him a chuckle, so the Here for You set saves the day with the perfect sentiment for a skunk! It’s hard to tell, but both the skunk and sentiment banners are popped up on dimensionals.  The inside of the card is stamped with the sentiment, “So sorry you’re hurting. Hang in there.”

Perfect Plum Painted Harvest

I can’t get enough of this Painted Harvest stamp set! It is so beyond versatile and I really like using them as my own “Designer Series Paper” for backgrounds. Since the last card I made using this set was super bright, I thought I’d tone it down a little and focus on purples. So happy with this!

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.

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.
