This is a card I made for an upcoming wedding. The main color is Pacific Point. The DSP is Blueberry Crisp. I used the Punch Potpourri set for the heart (I cut it out by hand because I don't have the full heart punch), and the flower, which I punched out with the blossom punch. I used the other two flowers from that stamp/punch on the inside of the card. The sentiment is from Happiness Always, an older SAB set, and it's on a tag from Lots of Tags sizzlets. The ribbon is white satin. I put one of the new adhesive jewels in the middle of the flower.

Embossing Folders

I saw the first card on Patty's blog and had to try it. It says "let the relaxation begin! (happy retirement) on the tag cut from the Lots of Tags sizzlets. I used flowers from the Pretties kit and colored one with the Rose Red marker. I used the new antique brads in the middle of the flower, and the new adhesive pearls, along with some pearls from the Pretties kit to put inside the circles of the Always Elegant Embossing Folder. For the 2nd card, I used the square lattice embossing folder. I got the color combo from the new color coach: Pacific Point, Rose Red, and Pumpkin Pie. The sets used are Kind and Caring Thoughts, and Teeny, Tiny Wishes. I also used one of the scallop border punches at the bottom.

Catalog CASEs

Both of these cards were cased from the catalog. The first card is exactly like the card on the Just Believe page. This card is by far my favorite of the catalog. I clear embossed the largest stamp, then layered the piece of Vanilla with the sentiment on top. I used the Color Sprayer and Soft Suede marker to put the brown dots on the card. The ribbon is 5/8 Satin Very Vanilla. For the next card, I embossed the Perfect Plum layer in the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. Then I stamped the Butterfly from Perfect Punches Hostess Level 1 set and cut it out with the scallop rectangle Clearlit. I layered it on a piece of Rose Red (got the color combo from the new Color Coach), and added a RR button and some Organdy ribbon. This card idea was based on the card next to the Butterfly Prints set in the catalog.

Jaylon loves SU!

Well, he loves the boxes anyway. I carried my new Stampin order upstairs in the box, then set the box down while I was putting my things away. When I turned around, I saw Jaylon relaxing in the box. Malachi was guarding the bathroom door, as usual. I still haven't thrown the box away, because they have been laying, and playing, in it.

I made this today using the Daisy #2 Big Shot Die and the Hi emblosslit. I used sketch 288. My new catalog stuff should arrive today, so I will have new things to post this week!

This is for SCS287. I used the new Friends Never Fade set, and Greenhouse Gala DSP. The ribbon is from a past originals collection.
