Positive Thoughts Birthday Card

 Hey Y’all!

Who loves bright, cheerful colors? If you do, then this card will not disappoint! I wanted to make a birthday card for an old friend from high school...she is battling breast cancer, is in the hospital, and her birthday is this coming Monday.

I chose the stamp set "Positive Thoughts" and matching dies, and then "Happy Thoughts" for the birthday sentiment.

I chose a piece of Peony Garden DSP to ground those bright colors, and stamped the leaf image in Basic Gray directly onto it. I also did some Tone on Tone stamping on the other layers to add texture. I used my snips to "rough up" the edges to add even more texture. I added 3 Matte Black Dots to the body of the butterfly, and a strip of the Polka Dot ribbon behind the focal image.

I pray this card lifts her spirits...her name is Susan, will you join me in praying for her?

Ridiculously Awesome Encouragement Card

 Hey Y'all!

 I needed to make a couple of cards, and I pulled out one of my favorite retiring sets....Ridiculously Awesome.  I decided to use some other retiring products, and this card came together so quickly!

I started with a Purple Posy card base, and stamped "You Got This" in Gorgeous Grape. Then I cropped a piece of Playing With Patterns DSP with the Stitched So Sweetly dies, and created my focal sentiment with the 2" and 2-1/4" Circle Punches. 

I added my favorite ribbon, and some of the sweet Acrylic Hearts from the Snail Mail Suite. 
Not much time left to get the Last Chance Products from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog.

Fine Art Floral Suite

 Hey Y’all!

I wanted to share a couple of projects I made over the weekend with the Fine Art Floral Suite.

The first is a "Thank You" card.

I used my Stamparatus for the die cut image, and did the "thumping" technique with the Stamp and Write markers. To do this, ink up your stamp with the lightest color, then "thump" the tip of the darker colored marker against the stamp.

I used the retiring Story Label Punch as a base for the flower and my sentiment, and the Detailed Trio Punch to punch ribbon holes to thread my ribbon through. 

The second project is this adorable tag that went so well with a baby gift! I also used a die from the brand new Annual Catalog, see that scalloped edge!

Remember, you only have a couple of weeks left to get the retiring products from the Annual Catalog.  Thanks for stopping by, hope I've inspired you to create something beautiful today!
