Fabulous Florets Thinking of You

 I hope everyone is doing well. Everything is going pretty good in my family and my little part of the world. The card you see was made for my manager. She has had to go through quite a few very difficult things in the past few months, of which, it still is not over. One of my coworkers wanted to do something nice for her to try and lift her spirits. We could all use it at times, but she really needed it. My part of this was to make the card. This was the final result.

To make this card I used chocolate chip, rose red, and naturals ivory cardstock. The stamp sets are fabulous florets and the retired set sincere salutations. I used the stampin' sponge, decorative label punch, scallop oval punch, and the retired lace ribbon border punch. I used classic ink, watercolor crayons, and blender pens to color the flowers. As for the bling, I added basic pearl jewels. The only other little thing I added was a small butterfly using my big shot and the beautiful wings embosslit die.
My boss told me she loved the card and even wanted to frame it! I was very happy that she liked it.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

Now go-n-stamp!!

Pattterned Party Birthday

It has been a while since I have posted something new. To be honest, today is the first I have been able to take the time to create a new card. This is the first out of 4 cards I will be making for my upcoming card class. I think this card looks much better in person than in the picture. I think I need to spend some time looking at some photography pins I have pinned on Pinterest. Once I do that, maybe I can improve the pictures somehow. I believe, it is in the lighting, that is for sure. 

To make this card I used cherry cobbler, pumpkin pie, night of navy, and whisper white cardstock. Patterned Party is the name of the stamp set. For tools, I used the dotted scallop ribbon border punch and the petite pennants builder punch. I almost forgot. I also used the big shot along with the stripes folder textured impressions embossing folder.
Be watching, because I will be posting some more cards soon. I have 3 more to get done. I apologize for the face that I don't post things more often. I want to create more often, but end up being tired and not wanting to do anything.
Thanks for being patient with me!
Now it is your turn to go-n-stamp!!

Pillow Box Wedding Favors

Hello! I have been working on a couple of projects lately. This one I have done for my daughter, of which, she is getting married on Tuesday. The thing that kind of stinks though, is that I used mostly retired products to make these. I hope you still like them though and I am sure some of you have some of these products still too.
To make these I used elegant eggplant, basic black, and very vanilla cardstock. To do the writing I used the MDS program. I used the Big Shot along with the pillow box die (retired) and the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. I used the decorative label and curly label punches. The ribbon was very vanilla satin 5/8 inch (retired). The flowers are not stampin' up! I used those because they matched and it saved me some time from having to make them.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you like them enough that you would want to make some also. Oh, they have m & m's in them. Mmmm good!

Now go-n-stamp!!
