Happy Friday!

This stamp just makes me so happy!  I love the bold look, and how much fun with the matching framelits!  I hope this card will also bring some happy into my friend's's on it's way to her right now.

Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!

Bright Thank You

There are cards that say thank you, and then there are cards that beam it...and this is definitely one of the latter.  The bold tempting turquoise embossing provides high contrast against the calypso coral paper, and the whole card just screams spring to me.

It also screams thank you!  And let me tell you about this stamp--it's one of Stampin' Up!'s new photopolymer stamp sets, and I just love it.  So many thank yous, so little time!  But even better than this is the super cling these stamps have with our clear blocks, and the fact that you can see through them for perfect placement.  I highly recommend that you pick up a set (or more) for yourself.  You won't regret it.


Stamps: Another Thank You photopolymer
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Calypso Coral
Extras: Tempting Turquoise embossing powder, heat gun, embossing buddy

Ombre Flower

Once I made the ombre background for Friday's hello card, I decided it would be great in a few different shapes as well.  I really love this flower framelit, and the second flower in Primrose Petals makes a great drop shadow.

The stamp is from one of my Paper Pumpkin kits.  Paper Pumpkin is a great new addition to Stampin' Up!'s lineup.  It's a subscription that sends you a new kit monthly with everything that you need (except adhesive) to create a wonderful project.  The project is different every time, but always wonderful and perfectly sized to take only 30 minutes--which gives you the creativity fix you crave even when time is short.  Check it out:  If you sign up (and you should), please just list me as your demonstrator and HAVE FUN!
