Heartfelt Blooms Encouragement Card

The season of Spring is about here even though it doesn't feel like it outside.  SUO Challenges #196  is all about Spring and it's wonderful events. Go visit their blog for some great ideas for Spring themed cards.  I designed this card so that it would fit into a standard business sized envelope for mailing.  It features the Sweet Sugarplum 2016-2018 in-color, lots of gold accents, and a Very Vanilla Background.

Petal Palette Stamp Set by Stampin' UP!

Petal Palette Thank You Card

I knew that I wanted to color the beautiful cabbage roses from the Petal Palette stamp set in Cherry Cobbler so I colored the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  The roses were cut out on the Big Shot using the matching framelits. I really loved how they looked. I added the textured  behind them using the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder on a piece of Old Olive card stock and then cut it out on the Big Shot with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The sentiment comes from this stamp set as well.

A Little Birthday Wit

The Birthday Wit stamp set by Stampin' UP is loaded with funny sentiments for birthday cards.  I decided to pair it with a few of my favorite colors like Peekaboo Peach and Lemon Lime Twist, as well as one of my top ten picks from the Occasions catalog.
