Sweet Harmony

This card is made from the beautiful Sweet Harmony Paper Packet. The stamp set used is called Finding Beauty.

Colors are Amethyst, Crystal Blue, Sweet Leaf, Blush and Colonial White.

The flower is stamped and then cut out. The tail end of it is then looped around the Blush ribbon found in the Colonial White Designer Ribbon Rounds Collection.

Sonata Card

This card has a little different of an opening. The front of the card does not go all the way to the other side. It has a nice little curve and the Lilac Mist paper is actually on the inside of the card.

The card uses the Sonata Level 2 Paper Packet along with the Floral Delights set. Colors are Lilac Mist, Buttercup, Chocolate, Hollyhock and Colonial White.

The flower on the front is actually dimensional. There are three different layers to the flower, it may be hard to see in the picture. Each layer is cut out then added to the card using foam tape to give it that extra dimension.

Get Well Card

This is another card using the Floral Tapestry papers along with the Beloved Blossoms set. I made this for my Grandmother after she had surgery. Colors are Orchid Bouquet, Garden Green and Colonial White. The "Get Well" sentiment is from the For Every Occassion set.

The flower on this one is stamped in Orchid Bouquet ink and then I just rolled the edges in Petal to give it a little bit of contrast and color. All the edges of the Colonial White cardstock are also edged in Orchid Bouquet ink as well.

Floral Tapestry

I just love the way this layout turned out! I have never really used our Stickease before, turns out they were a lot of fun and very easy to use. They are very thick stickers, like cardstock in their thickness. I think I will be using more of them from now on!!

The paper is the beautiful Floral Tapestry paper and the colors are Garden Green, Twilight, Vanilla Cream and Orchid Bouquet.

There is no stamping on this layout, it just makes use of the Floral Tapestry Level 2 My Stickease and a few embellishments such as silver brads and our White Dasiy Variety Pack Just Blooms Paper Flowers.

Majestic Blue

Here is a layout I made using the Majestic Blue papers. It also uses the Vintage Postcard and New Horizons stamp sets. Colors are Outdoor Denim, Bamboo, Desert Sand, Colonial White and Crystal Blue. I also used the new Creative Clips on the right page along with the Outdoor Denim Designer Ribbon wrapped around it. The layout also make use of the Outdoor Denim My Accents including several brads, a spiral clip and a Button Nail Head.

Beloved Blossoms

I just wanted to share a symapthy card that I made for a friend of mine after her Dad passed away. Sympathy cards always seem so hard to make for me, and perhaps it is just because of what it is being a sympathy card. It is always a rough time. So I wanted to share this card in case others get blocked like I do when they have to make these cards.

The stamp set is called Beloved Blossoms and I stamped the large flower in Orchid Bouquet ink then just rolled the edges of the flower in Petal ink to give it just a little shade varation. The phrase came from the Comforting Thoughts set. The paper is from the Floral Tapestry paper packet and the colors are Garden Green, Orchid Bouquet and Colonial White. The flowers are from the Autumn Daisy Paper Flowers collection and the brad used with the flowers is from the Mini Medley Accents Summer Celebration Collection. There is also a Silver Photo Clip used by the stamped image of the flower. The main base of Garden Green cardstock is also crumpled just a bit to give it some texture.

Free Spirit and Let's Get Together Papers

Hello! Sorry I have not had a chance to post lately. Too much overtime at work!

Anyway, I have a big workshop coming up and here is one of the layouts I created for it. It is Cherish's Accent Emphasis layout.

The stamp set used was Free Spirit and papers are from the Let's Get Together paper packet. It also uses 3 of the 6 different ribbons in the Garden Green Designer Ribbon collection. And I used a new Clear Inspiration Friendship Dangle (love those!) hung from a small piece of Waxy Flax tied around the loop in a Cranberry safety pin on the top of the left page.

Colors are Cranberry, Garden Green, Breeze, Buttercup and Colonial White.

Hope you are staying cool! =)
