Peaceful Boughs

Lots of Leaves

Today’s post will be a quick one I’ve got a full day that will end with getting to watch my daughter’s band doing their Journey show at an exhibition. So without further ado….

Today’s card highlights the lovely Lots of Leaves stamp set. This set is one I couldn’t resist with the large bold images and coordinating dies.

Originally I thought this would be a great for making masculine cards and then I looked at the sentiments closer. The sentiments are lovely don’t you think? Something for every occasion, making this set a year round one simply by changing up the colors.

The images as you can see have a wonderful shading to them adding depth and texture. And the dies are great since you can use them in to create positive image projects like this or use the left over negative image to create even more projects. And you’re going to love the stitching on the outside of the negative images!

Birds & Branches

It’s summer and that means the birds are here and doing their thing. I know in my back yard I’ve watched both the Bluebirds and Barn Swallows build nests, eggs hatch and those babies are now flying. It always amazes me how fast they grow after they hatch. Last night after the rain the Swallows were having a grand ole time swooping onto the pool surface and catching their insects for dinner.

So that naturally made me think of our new Birds & Branches Bundle found in the Annual Catalog on page 120.

This set creates a cool water color feel to it without any effort and it’s coordinating dies give you some extra designing options too while saving you 10%.

Check out these lovely cards made using this Bundle.

Way to Goat Card Class

Basket of Blooms

I love flowers during the summer. It brings me back to my childhood and walking through my Aunt Adeline’s yard which had what seemed like acres of flower beds and my Grandma’s front flower bed. Both of them loved flowers and their flower beds were so carefully manicured. While toiling in flower beds isn’t my cup of tea, I do enjoy the pop of color they bring to my yard and since it also brings the hummingbirds I always try and put some baskets and pots around my patio and porches. A more limited approach I know, but a much better for my allergies since although my mother tried for years I just don’t have a green thumb, that was passed on to my son.

So today’s cards reminds me of those wonderful ladies who have been gone along time now but are never far from my thoughts when I enjoy a wonderful splash of color from a flower bed.

This first card uses our new In Colors Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Bumblebee found in the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (152486).

And this next one teams up the In Color Designer Series Paper (153070) with Gorgeous Grape flowers. It uses the simple paper piecing technique. Do do this you’ll simply stamp the image onto your Designer Series Paper, this time they used the wood pattern from the In Color stack and fussy cut with your paper snips. So simple, but a great technique to use on your projects.

Isn’t it fun the way the flowers on the card front give a border that highlights the pattern on the inside of the card?

This next card uses the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder (152718) to add a bit of texture.

The flowers were colored in with out new 2020-2022 In Color Stampin’ Blends. Who doesn’t love the addition of these new colors to our Stampin’ Blends option?

And finally some soft subtle cards. Done in Highland Heather and Petal Pink this first card also uses the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder to add some texture along with the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon (153658)

And this final card uses a combination of Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight, and Sahara Sand

The Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon (150446) add a special touch with it’s sparkle.

I can’t pick a favorite can you?
