Vellum Secret Garden



Trying out another color combination (Basic Gray, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding) using the Secret Garden and Sweet Essentials stamp sets.
I stamped the flowers in Basic Black on vellum, cutting them out using the Secret Garden framelits. I colored the backs of the flowers using Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral and then cut coordinating Whisper White flowers behind the vellum, trimming them shorter than the vellum. I added white accents around edges of the flowers, leaves and Crisp Cantaloupe Fancy Fan embossed panel.

I'm glad that you stopped by!

Be Inspired Cards

My granddaughter has become quite an accomplished card maker, so I thought I'd share a few of her cards on my blog today to inspired you. Her first card is a case from Darlene Devries. Kayla used her design, but changed out the colors to her liking. She used the Mosaic Madness and Thank You Kindly stamp sets. I love it!
Her next card is one that she had fun making herself. I love her polka dot paper, buttons, colors and design.
I love her, she's a sweetheart!

October Thank You Tags

I love making tags, I don't know if it's their size, shape, or what it is, but I always have lots of ideas for making tags. This month's tags use the Floral Fusion sizzlits, which I've had forever, but haven't used very much...why? They're super cute and just the right size for tags!
I must remember these cute flowers for future projects!
 ...and yes, thanks much for stopping by :-)

Masked Gorgeous Grunge Thank You

This is my first time using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. It's got a completely different feel to it than the flower stamp sets I love using, but I really liked creating with this set. It got me thinking outside my box a little bit. I coupled it with the Six-Sided Sampler...they just seem to go together.
I masked a rectangle and sponged Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding inside the masked rectangle. I'd seen this color combination while we were travelling a few weeks ago and wrote down the colors so that I wouldn't forget them, very pretty together, especially with the Midnight Muse.
I love all the backgrounds this stamp set has, especially the splatter marks. Should make for some fun looking cards in the future.

A Pinterest Inspired Thank You

On Pinterest I have a color combination board which I used to create today's Thank You card. I love the soft hues of blues and pinks together, very pretty!

One thing that is really hard for me to do is to stick with just one stamp set when I make cards. I try, but it's usually hit-and-miss and today's card was a miss, as far as one stamp set goes. In fact this card uses three stamp sets: Thank You Kindly, Flowering Flourishes, and Mixed Bunch. (When I post my card on Splitcoaststampers, which stamp set should I place it in? I'm thinking Flowering Flourishes.)
I love the Flowering Flourishes for backgrounds and thought it would make a great start for a soft and pretty card. The Fancy Fan and Delicate Designs embossing folders added a nice texture to the card.
