Your Kindness Means so Much

It really does. I love when you leave me comments. I love the Sunflower framed like it is. This is one of the Note Cards we made on our Stampin’ Cruise. Jenn Gulch did a fantastic job on all the projects she had for us while we were out at sea. This is also the perfect card for the SUO Challenge, What is your favorite product from the Holiday Catalog? You know that I LOVE…

Painted Harvest, Patty’s Way

Isn’t this card beautiful? This one was designed by Patty. Its got 6 layers but still a simple design. We started off with a Whisper White card base (you could use the new Thick Very Vanilla too). The flowers were stamped on Whisper White using Daffodil Delight for the first color, then Crushed Curry to add the highlights. The inside of the flowers are Early Espresso as well as the sentiment. We fussy cut the…

Fun Fold…..Again!

YES! I can’t get enough of this fold. You can see the others HERE, HERE and HERE! Tip: You will notice that the Square piece is NOT centered in that front panel. If you do center it, you won’t be able to put it in a regular envelope. So set the square on the front piece ( 1 1/4″ piece) with the card folded to get placement. Make sense?  This time I’m using the Floral…

Perfectly Wrapped Birthday Card

The 28th of May was Patty’s Birthday (boy am I behind….) and this is the card I made for her, using the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp set we could get in our pre-order. Besides the stamp set, I used the new Layering Squares Framelits, new In Color Peekaboo Peach and the Copper Embossing Powder….so pretty! I first took my “D” Block and added Peekaboo Peach to my Ink Pad lid. TIP: when ordering a new Stamp…
