Simply Sketched Fun

I made this card for dear friend who has been under the weather.  I used the bright color Calypso Coral in attempt to "brighten" her day.  I used a blender pen to give it a water color look.  I also used my Simply Scored to add some score lines around the Whisper White card front.  Can you guess what other AMAZING tool I used?  Yep, you guessed it, the Envelope Punch Board.  I made my very first envelope to send with this card.  I used Soft Sky card stock for a softer appearance.  I also stamped the flower image from Simply Sketched again on the front of the envelope.  Stay tuned for more fun ideas using the Envelope Punch Board

A Slushy Thank You

I guess I have been in a thankful sort of mood lately, lots of Thank You cards everywhere.  That is what fall reminds me of, being thankful for the beautiful seasons we are so fortunate enough to experience.  The beauty in the trees right now is just amazing.  I hope you find beauty in this card.  I am really enjoying the new In Color - Strawberry Slush.  I am also addicted to the background stamp En Francais.  I hope you like like the card!!!

A Thousand Thanks.....

I made these cards for a very special event that was held in memory of my dear friend Amy.  These cards were not the ones that were chosen to be sent to the donors/sponsors of these events, I will post the card that made the final cut later :)
A stamp set for all occasions is definitely Lovely as a Tree.  I am also crazy about Autumn Accents for this time of year.  I used Perfect Plum several years ago on a Christmas card and everyone loved it, it truly helped me to see the versatility in the color.  I hope your day is filled with stampin...I'm on my way to my studio!!

Gifts of Kindess

The new Gifts of Kindness stamp set has really been a go to for me lately.  This is another card that was featured at a more recent card buffet.  I love the brightness of Wild Wasabi and Tangerine Tango together.  I used a sponge dauber to color the stamp.  I like how soft makes the edges when you do that.  I can see this being a stamp set I keep for a very long time!!! 
Happy Stampin'

Flower Shop Fun

Not only am I enjoying playing with the new stamp set Flower Shop and coordinating punch, but I love using them with some of our new colors!  I love how great the Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, and Calypso Coral go together.  This was the first time I used the Flower Shop and Oh Hello stamp set, so I am pretty pleased.  I hope your day has some stampin' in it!!

Shabby Cycle

I have to say this is one of my most favorite cards that I have made in a while.  I love the layers of this card along with the little details.  This card was featured at one of my more recent Card Buffets and I believe there were none left over.  I would like to see how this card would turn out in Midnight Muse or Night of Navy, I bet that would be gorgeous as well.  Have a great day

Fall Ensemble

I have to give a big Thank You to Kat for taking this picture for me.  I think she did such a good job on the layout and lighting I should hire her to take all my pics. I have commented several times that picture taking is not my forte.  I think everyone had an enjoyable evening created these three projects with the Wonderfall Stamp Set and Sweater Weather DSP.  I hope to begin to offer classes similar to this more often because they are quite enjoyable and versatile.
Happy Stampin'
