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!!
