Meant to Be

Wedding season seams to always sneak up on me. I don't know why I don't make a few cards to keep on hand. Well once I found this card and made it, it's now my go-to for the year. I even fit it into one of my card classes!



For the flowers and leaves I used Old Olive and Pool Party Stampin Blend markers. I outlined using the darker shade and filled them in using the lighter color. I then finished them off with a bit of Wink of Stella to add a shimmer for that wedding elegance.

I hope you like my card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!"

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!

Heartfelt Gratitude

Have you ever had that person that has helped you so much that just a simple Thank You won't do? This card recognizes that, where you express your Heartfelt Gratitude.



This card looks easier than it looks. It's just layers of paper, with just a smidge of stamping. I even will admit a small boo-boo that I did on it. I only meant to have one stamped heart under the sentiment, but didn't center it, so I added another. I like it better than what was originally in my head.

I used the beautiful Nature's Poem Designer Paper. The sentiment is from the A Big Thank You stamp set. 

HINT: After you cut the Designer Paper, just be sure when you adhere it to the solid pieces of cardstock that you  keep them in order so they line up with one another as a continuous flow.

I hope you liked this card. Please leave me a message below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!"

Thank you for stopping by, and Happy Stampin!

Kindness Changes Everything

We all need a little kindness in our lives. This is a happy card that is quite easy to make. 



I love how the colors in this card are bright and cheerful, just like the meaning of the card. It is sure to put a smile on any recipients face. 

I used the Abstract Impressions stamp set which gives an artsy feeling to the card. You really can't make a mistake on this one!

I hope you like my card. Please leave a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!"

Thinking of You - Rooted in Nature

I was playing with the new 2018-2020 In Colors and found an unlikely pair... Gorgeous Grape and Balmy Blue... who would have thought??? Well, the paper is Gorgeous Grape but the ink is Highland Heather... why not?



I used the "stamped off" technique on all of the stamped leaves on this card. I felt is was a more subtle look. 

I love the cute little Leaves Trinkets! I used a copper one to coordinate with the copper embossed leaves. Aren't they so cute?

I then finished it with a small piece of burlap ribbon to add dimension. 

I hope you like this card. Leave me a comment below to let me know, of just to say "Hi!"

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!
