Thinking of You

I'm thinking I like this card layout.  I'm also seeing another trend.  I've been doing a lot of "Thinking of You" cards here lately. 

I embossed the Whisper White base with Perfect Dot embossing folder, cut 3 strips of Night & Day Specialty Designer Paper and with my sponge dauber I rubbed a light layer of ink on the cardstock & then wiped away to reveal the embossed images originally on the specialty paper. Punched a butterfly shape, added ribbon and a sentiment.

I'm thinking this sketch is from one of the Challenges I've seen lately, however, I can't find it again... sigh...

Stamps:  Wonderful Watercolors
Punches:  Butterfly and Square punches
Big Shot:  Perfect Dots Embossing Folder and Adorning Accents Edgelits
Misc:  Ribbon, sponge daubers, and dimensionals
Colors Used:  Whisper White cardstock and Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz, Riding Hood Red and Basic Gray inks.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it's very appreciated!

Wishing Blessing or you & yours;

Thinking of You - Guest Designer

I am humbled to announce that I have been asked by the lovely team from Sunny Challenges and Creations to be their Guest Designer for the month of July.  I couldn't resist this great opportunity!  The first week is a Color Challenge that includes River Rock, Cherry Cobbler, and Marina Mist.  I have never considered using these colors together and I am so pleased with how they compliment one another.  I now have a new favorite group of colors I intend to use every chance I get!

And here is my interpretation of the colors:

On this card I thought I would break up the background mat behind the focal image by tearing the paper in half and piecing it together.   Thinking of You is embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder, the bird's wing is embossed using the Square Lattice embossing folder. There's not really anything spectacular about this card, I was shooting for a clean layout. 

This card was created using the following Stampin' Up! supplies:
  • Stamp Set/s:
    • You Are Loved
    •  Simple Friendship (image stamped on the bird)
  • Punches:
    • Bird Builder Punch
    • Oval Punch
    • Lace Ribbon Border Punch
    • Decorative Label Punch
  • Big Shot:
    • Square Lattice Embossing Folder
    • Designer Frames Embossing Folder
    • Framelits Labels Collection
  • Misc:
    • Bling Gem (bird's eye)
    • Brads from Subtles collection
    • Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder
  • Colors Used:
    • River Rock
    • Cherry Cobbler
    • Marina Mist
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I look forward to presenting next week's challenge so stay tuned!
