Farmhouse Chic Thanks

2018_01_20IMG_2842 I always like to give a shout out to my customers and friends who send me cards.  Today’s card is from my dear friend Sheri and it features the beautiful Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack #Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  Sheri embossed the images from the Wood Words #143925 stamp set to give the card a farmhouse chic personality. The sentiment was cut from a retired thinlit and she added a super sweet double bow to complete the card.

Bold and Beautiful

2018_01_22MG_2692Today’s card is another one that I created using the Stampin Up Memories and More Color Theory Card Pack #144210 to create this simple card.  The Color Theory Card Pack contains 52 Double Sided cards that are intended to be used for scrapbooking and memory making.  The 4″ X 6 ” cards are perfect for creating card fronts  and combining with other coordinating supplies to create a quick and easy card. I simple combined different sized cards and even cut out the hibiscus from another card to complete this card in a jiff.  The sentiment is stamped from the Colorful Seasons #143726 stamp set.

Climbing Orchids

2018_01_23IMG_0648 Today’s post is absolutely stunning and uses quite a few products from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  Cammie wanted to make a great impression so she started off by texturing the base layer with the Stampin Up Layered Leaves #143704 Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Cammie built her delicate orchids using Climbing Orchids #143723 stamp set, the coordinating Orchid Builder Framelits #143747 and painted the petals with an Aqua painter to add color to the petals.  The flowers were assembled and placed on a stem cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751.  Cammie finished the card using a sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stampset.

Hang In There

2018_01_17IMG_2881 Phantom of the Opera has made its way back for a short run in Columbus Ohio so I wanted to pull out the now retired Chandelier Thinlits die for the dramatic focal point. I added the beaded jewels stamped from the now retired Season to Sparkle stamp set and the background paper is from the now retired Merry Music DSP from Stampin Up,   I made a few of these cards to have on hand for friends and family are going through a rough time.
