Thanks for everything!

Good morning!

Today, I'm joining with the designers from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps in featuring one of our newest stamp sets just released called Thankful Blooms and it's coordinating die set:

For my card today, I die cut several layers of some tissue paper that I had saved from a package of some sort because I loved the patterns on it!  I cut about 7+ layers from all three of the dies, stapled together to a solid patterned paper die cut for the bottom and 'scrunched' up the individual tissues for dimension.  Super quick and fun!

To hide the staples, I added a button to the centers and embellished a bit with a pearl.  The leaves were die cut with patterned paper - no need for much stamping on this card!

To see the rest of the designer's samples for today's hop, please check out the photo links below.  And, please be sure to check out the challenge that coordinates with today's blog hop.  All the information can be found on the SNSS company blog!

Have a great day!

Bright Bridal Shower congrats.

Good morning!

I'm back with another Scattered Showers card this morning for you - I still have three more but I'll wait until next week to share the rest of them with you since you may be getting tired of the set by now!  Today's card was a fun one to make with all the bright patterned papers and colors.  

I love the smaller card size and need to try to use it more often.  I like letting the design elements hang a bit off the sides and with the 3.75" side there's plenty of room to do that while still having the card be able to fit in a standard envelope.

This time I made the card for a bridal shower and added the 'congrats' die cut sentiment from the tag.  Remember how I told you that usually my cards 'evolve' from the previous ones?  Since I already have everything out anyway, I usually try to make several cards at a time - it's just what has always worked for me!

Have a great day and thank you so much for checking in on me today!

Girly showers of blessings.

Good morning!

I'm back today with another Scattered Showers card I made over the weekend for my card stash.  This time I was thinking of a girly shower - like for a baby girl or even a bride!  Lots of fun playing with washi tapes in all shades of pink!  Love that subtle pop of Aqua Mist on the tag.

My second card uses pinks and purples with just a touch of turquoise.  This time I went all baby with the adorable 'baby' die cut sentiment as part of the tag.  In my mind, just because the mom may be having a boy - there can be a bit of purple and pink on her shower card because SHE is a girl!  ha!  

You can see that I mimicked the colors on the card with my baker's twines from The Twinery: Blossom, Caribbean, and Lilac - so fun!

I'll be back soon with some more Scattered Showers cards - when I work on a new set, I always make several cards as that's how the design process seems to work for me!  Each card evolves out of the last!

Have a great day!
