Heartfelt Thank You

So elegant, if I do say so myself! I have a bazillion thank you's to make for all of the generous people who helped my family out during the loss of my Mother-in-Law. I think this card will be one of them.

I used the color challenge this time from Diva Coffee Break Designs. The colors I used are Basic Black, Whisper White, Basic Grey, and Very Vanilla. It's hard to tell from the piture that the flower is matted on Vanilla. I stamped the flower from Heartfelt Thanks with craft white ink and then embossed it with clear powder to help set it and give it a little gloss. Thanks for stopping by!

Funky Flower Layers

What a funky color combo this is!!! I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it exactly. But once I got creating it just kinda fell into place. I used the Big Shot die called Flower Layers.
The stamp set (sorry for the blurry pic) is from the Occasions Mini and it is called Oval All. Great color challenge this week. Definitely out of my ordinary color choices!! But that is what keeps me wanting to do them!!!

Heartfelt flowers

Here is the scrapbook page I made for my club. I used the technique of "thumpin". That basically means to stamp the flower in a light color and the "thump" the marker on top of the lighter ink with a darker ink. Then you lightly mist the stamp with water and stamp on the paper.

For this one I used Pretty in Pink and Lovely Lilac for the colors. I just used the flower outline on top of the stamped images. The stamp set I used was Heartfelt Thanks.

Thanks for looking today

This is a simple card I made to show off the wheel. I used the jumbo wheel called It's Beautiful in Bashful Blue ink. The birthday wishes is from Wow Flowers.
I love the simplicity of this card. The sentiment is actually on the inside of the card and I punched the front of the card out with the Word Window punch

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

This is a card I made for my stamp club. I got the idea from the Stampin Success catalog that I get each month for being a demo.
The cardstock I used was Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Very Vanilla.
The stamp set is called Tart and Tangy. The ribbon is Certainly Celery. The way I colored the "chocolate" dipped strawberries is just by simply using markers to color in where I wanted the chocolate to show. Thanks for stopping by.

SImple and Cute!!

This is so simple and "adorable" I just love it. I made this 6x6 page for a tech class for beginners. I was showcasing punches and how easy they are to use and the great embellishments they can make. I have always been a fan of brown and pink together.
The paper is from Stampin Up and it is called Sweet Always. The other cardstock is choc chip and regal rose. The stamp set I used is Warm Words. The punches used are the large oval , reg oval and photo corner.
Thanks for stopping by!!!!

I haven't used this stamp set in a long time so I figured it was time to dust it off. The stamp set is called Garden Whimsy. The "happiness" is from Warm Words. The sketch is from Diva Coffee Break Designs.
I used Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, and Very Vanilla cardstock and inks. I added a few cute little buttons to balance the left side better.

Sweeter Than Apple Pie

This is a card I made with a sketch by Mojo Monday and the color combo is from Splitcoast stampers.
The colors are Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, and Riding Hood Red (I added a little bit of Whisper White for the mats). The SU stamp sets I used are called Tart and Tangy and One Smart Cookie. Thanks for looking!!
