Truly Grateful

Since Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away I thought I would share with you some wonderful swaps that I have received from my friends during our monthly meetings. I couldn’t pick just one since I think they are all wonderful cards.

Tags 4 You

This first one is uses the Tags 4 You stamp set (131820/131823) and it’s coordinating Label Bracket Punch (132153). Anna cut the Sweather Weather Designer Series Paper (132184) using the Autumn Accents Bigz Die (127812) and used them to form the wreath. I really love the way she used the Woodgrain Embossing Folder (127821) to make it look like it was hanging on a door.

Truly Grateful

This second card uses our Truly Grateful Stamp Set (131730/131733) from the Holiday Catalog. Lorraine used the Chevron Border Punch (132154) to create this wonderful look along the bottom of the card.  I love the rich earthy feel of this card made using our Baked Brown Sugar and Summer Starfruit Card Stock.

Gently Falling (2)

And finally this last card is from my friend Bonnie. I really love the non traditional fall colors she used. Who would think of Bermuda Bay, Raspberry Ripple, Old Olive and Summer Starfruit when looking at the Gently Falling Stamp Set (128430/123804)? But I love it – the card brings a smile to my face every time I see it. I especially like the Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons that has been added to the Linen Thread she wrapped around the bottom of the card. It really catches the light.

Loving Thoughts

Recently I needed a card for a friend who is the care giver for a loved one – this can be a particularly stressful and so I wanted her to know that I’m thinking of her. Here is the card I created. It uses the stamp set Loving Thoughts which is a set that uses a wonderfully elegant font and is comprised solely of 11 sentiments.

Gently Falling

I also used one of my favorite two step stamp sets, Gently Falling. I thought it rather fit since here in North Georgia we’re at the peak of our leaf watching season. To recreate the view from my window I first spritzed my card stock using Baked Brown Sugar and my Stampin’ Spritzer. Then I stamped my solid images using Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze, and Baked Brown Sugar and finally did the sentiment and line images in Chocolate Chip.

Since I was inspired by looking out the window I wanted to give the same feel to my card so I used my Ovals Collection Framelits and the coordinating Occasions Paper Piercing Pack to highlight my shape.

So what do you think? I hope it will bring a smile to my friends face when she opens it and lets her know she is being thought of.

Gently Falling

Today is my mother’s 74th birthday and so I like to make a special card for her. My mom’s favorite season is fall. She loves all the leaves changing color so I thought the Gently Falling stamp set would be a good place to start. I really love all the techniques you can do with the Gently Falling and since it is a two step stamping set it gives you tons of choices!

Gently Falling Birthday

I also wanted to use her favorite color, blue when creating this card so I thought a great place to start was with our Clearance Rack fabric, Spice Cake (item 124066). I pulled the color pallet from this fabric as inspiration when I created this card.

So what do you think? I like to use torn fabric on cards instead of ribbon sometimes – it adds a little different texture I think. I hope my mother will like it.

Don’t you love that we have a clearance rack in the Online Store? I know I do it is a great place to find special buys and the items are always changing. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to find old favorites like the Spice Cake Fabric I used today? Why not check it out by clicking HERE?
