Pretty Thank You

Hello Stampers!

Yet another Blooming with Kindness card.  My Laughing Ladies made these cards at our class and they loved the fact that they got to take their own stamp set home with them!  My classes going forward will be product based, so you will be able to recreate any cards you desire and also come up with new ones for yourselves!!!

This is a CASE from someone who's name is escaping me right now.  Shocker, right???   HAHAHAHAHA  In the card I cased, it was a 4x4 I believe and I just made it into a standard A2 size card.  I love the delicate embossing across the bottom from the Delicate Designs folder.  The Rich Razzelberry really made this card pop.  The simple line of the 1/4 inch stitched grosgrain pulled the card together with the beautiful Rich Razzelberry dahlia.  The Perfectly Penned sentiment was a perfect fit beside the dahlia.  Can you imagine this card in different colors??? 

Thanks for stopping by!  Please leave me a comment.  I love reading them!

Edited to add:  Okay, so I don't know my flowers as well as I thought I did.  This flower isn't a daisy, it's a chrysanthemum.  DUH!!!!  HAHAHAHA

Another Blooming With Kindness

Hello Stampers!!!

Here's another card my Laughing Ladies made this past weekend.  I absolutely LOVE the Blooming With Kindness stamp set.

This is another CASE from Cindy Russell, one of my sidelines.  I just switched up the color combination and sentiment.  She's an AWESOME stamper!!!

I stamped the daisy using Midnight Muse ink twice, eyeballing the second one to where it would just peek over the ribbon.  Stamp your sentiment in the upper left corner.  I embossed the bottom portion of the Raspberry Ripple cardstock using the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder in the Holiday Mini.  If you are going to make multiples, cut your cardstock, emboss the entire piece and trim to the size you need (mine is 1 1/4 inch).  I attached the embossed piece to the Whisper White cardstock, tied the 3/8th inch stitched satin ribbon in a knot and attached it to the other two mats.

Thanks for stopping by!!!  I love reading your comments.

Blooming With Kindness

Hello Stampers!

I had my Laughing Ladies stamp class last weekend.  Here's one of the cards we made.

This was a CASE from Chris Galbraith.  It's pretty much a straight CASE.  I just didn't put the punched circle in the middle of the flower.  This card is made with a couple of techniques:  one, the large Pool Party flower is die cut with the next to largest Floral Framelit die adhered to the Whisper White cardstock, and "embedded" into the Whisper White cardstock with the new Fan Embossing Folder.  Make sure you stamp your sentiment before you emboss it with the folder.  The Dahlia flower is inked in Pool Party and then I used markers in Baja Breeze, Tempting Turquoise, and Pacific Point and scribbled the markers directly on the stamp.  You then "Darth Vader" (also known as "huffing") the stamp and stamp it on Whisper White.  Die cut it out with the scalloped die from Floral Framelits and pop it with dimensionals.  Tie a bow with the Pool Party ruffled ribbon and attach it with a glue dot or two.  Totally easy peasy!!!
