In the Meadow

This was one of those sets that called my name, as soon as I saw it. I could see the possibilities  immediately for all kinds of cards, including masculine ones and sympathy which are always a bit harder for me.

After all who doesn’t love nature? And these sketched images would look great embossed or done in neutral tones.

Check out this sympathy card I made with the In the Meadow Stamp set and retiring Going Places 6×6 Designer Series Paper Stack (140581). The neutral colors and natural feel of the patterns are perfect with this set.

And how about this one? While it uses the same basic layout I’ve swapped the Designer Series Paper for the  Go Wild paper stack (138441). At first I thought the patterns were a bit intense, but then once I started using it I couldn’t quit. Doesn’t this pattern look like hoof prints?

Team Fun

Last night I held my monthly Team meeting. And for those that braved the rainy weather there was a lot of sharing, laughter, food and stamping of course.

Today I thought I’d share with you some swaps that were brought to the meeting.

This first card is bright and bold was created by Janie.

Its my party Team Swap March 2016 (2)

The drape or pleated skirt told was done using the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper stack (140552).

This second card uses the In the Meadow stamp set (140751/140754) and has a totally different feel to it. It’s soft and subtle since Cindy chose the Blushing Bride pattern from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack (140548).

Even the embossing folder, Softly Falling (139672) that Cindy chose makes you think soft and peaceful. LOL!

Seeing different styles and color choices is part of the fun of sharing during our meetings. It energizes every ones creative juices! What fun to share.
