Elegant Flower Fancy Sympathy

I love Flower Fancy! It has got to be one of my all time favorite stamp sets. The flowers are so soft and elegant. This was a recent sympathy card I made with this set. I used my aqua painters to softly color in the flowers with our Stampin' Up ink. I also used the new Adorning Accents Edgelits dies to make the beautiful scalloped border. Enjoy!

Fabulous Florets Thank You

I love this stamp set, "Fabulous Florets" (wood mount 123025, clear mount 123027). The flowers or elements in this stamp set give way to many different looking cards and can be used for scrapbook pages too. This is a card I made recently for a customer. I used the new doily die found in the Occasions Mini. Enjoy!

Bringing Baby

I am going to try and post a bunch of recent cards I made. Many of them are quick and simple. Here is one made with our A La Carte stamp "Bringing Baby". (#122905) Enjoy!

Distressed Elementary Elegance Birthday Card

One of my favorite new products in the big catty is the distressing kit. It is so easy to create a distressed appearance with the fun kit. It includes 1 flat stamp, 4 distressing ink spots (love the colors), 1 sanding block, 1 emery boarda and 3 precision files. Simply dab ink pad on stamp and rub it over your paper, then blend ink with water for an aged look. Love this look! Use the sanding block and emery board to distress or smooth edges of paper after adding it to cardstock. Use precision files to sand intricate die cuts and sand in tight areas. It sells for $19.95 and can be found in the big catalog on page 203 (#118762). I used Elementary Elegance stamp set (which can be earned for free with a $50 purchase) from Sale-A-Bration. Tiny Tags was used for the sentiment friends and was punched out with the jewelry tag punch. Other supplies used include: the baker's twine, butterfly punch, pearls, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, and Everyday Enchantment DSP. Enjoy!
