Guy Greetings & More

Today I wanted to share some of the swaps that I made in Sherrie’s Shoe box swap at OnStage. I enjoy this event and stamping with demonstrators from all over North America. It’s face paced, and fun since we swap 40 cards in 3 hours!

Today’s cards use stamp sets and other products that are all part of the Last Chance List and will be retiring in May. I’m really sad to see this first set, Guy Greetings (138825/138828) go. I love using it for those guys in my life.

It has a fun fold too.

I love the colors we used for this card – It uses our True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper (145593), Night of Navy 3/8″ Corduroy Ribbon (145597) and Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon too (144136). Rich bold and perfect for those dudes in our life.

And here is a fun card that has no stamping on it – Our Big Shot Celebration Duo Embossing Folders (142760) and Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies (137547) were used to create the bright bold card.

And how about this soft and subtle card a mask and sponging create this lovely focal point.

The final stamping was done in our Archival Basic Black Ink (140931) using our Thoughts & Prayers (128751/127805) and Touches of Texture (1419341/143251) stamp sets.

This next card uses the You’ve Got This stamp set (139572/139575) and it is done with our Watercolor Pencils and teamed up with our Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack (144131).

And finally this bright bold card using the Pansy Punch (130698) and coordinating stamp set, Birthday Blossoms (139167/139471).

The sentiment is from our Picture Perfect (145519) set and the color palette is pulled from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (144185). Can you see the stripes created with the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder (145648) on the Lemon Lime Twist background?

Our Last Chance List promotion is currently in full swing, so why not stop by my online store and see what items are going away at the end of May?

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a fun nugget treat video tutorial I made for my 3d swaps at OnStage.

Thoughts & Prayers

Have you ever had one of those days? Well it seems like lately I’ve had a run of them so I haven’t been able to post the projects like I’ve wanted lately. We’ll the skies are clearing and hopefully I’m back on track. So that being said  –

I’ve had several people in my life lately who recently have had surgery and I wanted to send them a card to let them know I was thinking of them. I wanted something simple and elegant which of course made me think of my Thoughts & Prayers stamp set sitting on my shelf.

I love this stamp set with its simple sentiments and find myself reaching for Thoughts & Prayers often when creating these kinds of cards. Don’t you love the images? They’re great for both the men and women in our lives.

So here is one of the cards I came up with using the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp set. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
