Swirly Banner Birthday

I decided to make a card with some soon-to-be retired colors. Wisteria Wonder is one that I will truly miss. I thought it would be lovely with the Sweet Sugarplum and I threw in a pop of Wild Wasabi for the leaves. All three of these colors will be joining the crafting world’s great beyond on May 31st. Be sure to stock up on cardstock and ink right away, as it’s while supplies last.

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.

Swirly Wink of Thanks

I decided to make my club order thank you cards with the Swirly Bird bundle. It’s my first time of using the stamp set and matching dies. O-M-Goodness! Such an adorable set!  I’ve been making so many Thanksgiving and Christmas cards lately, I wanted something flowery, with spring-y colors. The color combo I went with is perfect and the Wink of Stella on the flowers and leaves give them a lovely, subtle glimmer, too. I think my favorite stamp in the set is that uber cute little Daffodil swirl that I put on the cards and the matching envelopes!

Hummingbird Thank You

I always like to include a card with orders I receive.  I wanted to do a soft, CAS (Clean and Simple) card. I settled on the Picture Perfect stamp set.  It’s been collecting dust because doing 4-step stamping can be very intimidating. They are by no means perfect, but I think the hummingbird is lovely. It is perfectly sized on the Whisper White Notecards, which are 5″ x 3/5″.  I love the hazy effect of sponging Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz for the background. The colors I used for each of the steps are:
1. Smoky Slate
2. Wild Wasabi
3. Marina Mist (stamped off once)
4. Marina Mist
