Let’s Be Friends Forever

My friend Caroline loves to garden and she is always there with dinner and/or a pretty flower bouquet for anyone who needs it. She also appreciates and sends homemade cards. It saddens me that she is moving…her presence will be missed at our monthly birthday dinners and book club meetings as well as the many sporting events she attends supporting and cheering her children and friends. I made these tags to go with the favors for her going away party. img_4612

The sentiment from Eastern Beauty stamp set was the perfect choice to go with the “Forget Me Not” seed packets. I stamped it on a piece of 2 x 4 1/4 Very Vanilla cardstock in Wisteria Wonder ink. I also stamped some flowers from Birthday Blossoms.  I cut a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock the same size as the Very Vanilla then punched the top of both pieces with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and sponged the edges with a sponge dauber. I offset the pieces and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals then added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.

I wrapped the seed packets in clear cellophane bags and tied the tag with Very Vanilla ribbon. Here’s a photo of Caroline with her “Forget Me Not” floral cake.


To quote Caroline,”Farewell never tasted so sweet!”

Hopefully we sent her off in style til we meet again!

A simple Thinking of You Card

I had a request to make a simple thinking of you card.  Here is my card.

Thinking of you sentiment from Sheltering Tree Stamp set

I started with a piece of Sahara Sand for my card base. (This is my go to neutral.)  I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set onto the card base using Memento Black ink. I stamped more leaves on Mint Macaron cardstock and the flower on a scrap of Whisper White.  I punched the flower out with the Pansy Punch and fussy cut the leaves with my Paper Snips (Love these scissors!).  I attached the leaves with glue dots and the flower is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center of the white flower and stamped my envelope to match. Quick & easy!  I hope it meets the simple card request.

Stamp sets: Birthday Blossoms, Sheltering Tree  Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black  Papers: Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron, Whisper White  Tools & Accessories: Pansy Punch, Paper Snips, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blossoms stamp set

I received the new Stitched Shapes Framelits last week and couldn’t wait to play with them! I used the largest stitched square shape to highlight the sentiment box. I love how this looks and I really love how easy it is to achieve perfect stitched detail!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits

My card base is Mint Macaron with a 4 x 5 1/2″ layer of DSP from the 2015 – 2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack  I added a 2 1/2 x 5 1/2″ strip of Whisper White in the center.  I used the Big Shot to cut out the stitched square framelit and then stamped the flowers in Pink Pirouette and the leaves and sentiment in Mint Macaron. I like the tone on tone on the pansy and leaves.  I used the Pansy Punch to punch out the flower and fussy cut the leaves with my paper snips. I layered the flowers on top of each other with a Stampin’ Dimensional and added the leaves behind with a glue dot.  The silver ribbon in the corner adds some texture. I cut a metallic foil doily in half and adhered each piece behind the layered squares. I like that it’s a simple card with a little sparkle. I stamped the envelope and the inside of the card to match using the Birthday Blossoms stamp set.
