Thinking of You Card Set


I'm back with a wonderful card set Brandy made using her Concord & 9th Detailed Blooms die set.  The background was stamped with a woodgrain background stamp paired with the lovely die cuts.







It's tough to decide which card is the most lovely.  Let's just decide that the most lovely is in the eye of the beholder.  What a wonderful card set that will make a beautiful gift!

Another 45th Wedding Anniversary Card




I had whipped up this card for my parent's 45th wedding anniversary.  I decided to use the sapphire blue card that I shared with you in May and the pieces for this card were set aside.  I decided to go ahead and put the card together anyway.

The blooms are stamped with my Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set and then partially die cut on the edge.


Not sure when I'll need this card, but it goes into the stash for someone to use for their special milestone event.

Pretty Purple Lady


This pretty little girl was colored by Brandy using her Polychromos colored pencils.  I am just so in love with her and astounded once again by my friend's incredible talent.  So beautiful!

A Vintage Happy Birthday




I've been especially enjoying my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers lately.  I almost always use them with Bristol cardstock.  They are so easy to use and create a great result such that my limited skill isn't on clear display.  Today I'm sharing some images I had previously colored, but only recently mounted on some patterned paper to finish off the card.  In this case, I stamped the poles for the sentiment banner on the patterned paper and they used foam squares to raise up the cake and the sentiment banner.




On the inside, a simple stamped sentiment.



I also used the star burst stamp to gold emboss the patterned paper and add some accent to the base of the card.  It is difficult to see on the first card, but easier to identify in this second card.

Much Delayed Graduation Card


Brandy shared this card with me that she made as a graduation card last month.  I am just now sharing this with you as I think this is such a clever card.  The balloons were stamped using the Sunny Studio Bold Balloons stamps and dies.  Definitely a reason to celebrate!
