Gorgeous Grape I Love You

I chose bold inks: Gorgeous Grape, Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso

I designed this card for my January Workshop. If you live in the Orange County area and would like to attend my monthly workshops, please contact me and let me know you'd like to be on my list. We have a lot of fun making cards each month.


I love the detail of Tufted 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. With the bold colors on this card, I'm even more "impressed" with it :-)

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you are inspired to create! Please let me know you were here by leaving a short comment. As always, if you have any questions, please email me and I will get back to you.

Meant to Be All My Love

I added my own tiny Flirty Flamingo hearts leftover from the heart die cut on the bottom

This card was created because I saw Barb Kapla's card. I changed the ribbon and the white piece that the sentiment is on. She may have used Real Red for her matt and solid heart, it's hard to tell colors on the internet. I also added the pearls on the gorgeous lace heart in Flirty Flamingo. 

Here I added the half flower on the sentiment piece
I've been loving using up my Lovely Lipstick card stock because it is one of the coordinating colors in the All My Love Designer Series Paper that I chose to make my Valentines with.

I hope you enjoyed looking today! Please leave a comment before you go--I love reading them all.

Scrapbook Page


Saying goodbye to a member of your team is not ever easy! But making a scrap book so everyone can participate in sending her off with our memories and encouragement makes it a little easier on us all.

I started with a full sheet Soft Sea Foam card stock. I used Basic Gray Ink to decorate it with the flowers from Color Me Happy. 

The sentiment at the top is the large "thank you" from Color Me Happy, which I stamped in Night of Navy ink, then colored with Soft Sea Foam and Navy Stampin' Write Markers. I cut it out using the Layering Ovals Framelits and then framed it with a Night of Navy scalloped oval.

I cut a piece of vellum large enough for my message and used a piece of notebook paper under the vellum so my lines would stay straight as I wrote out my message.

To attach the vellum to the card stock, I took a long strip of a White Velvet Sheet and then trimmed it using one of the dies from Be Mine Stitched Framelits. I used the same die to scallop the bottom of the vellum. I decorated the strip with two cut-out flowers and added a sequin to each one. 

I hope you like my project and that you come here for inspiration!
