Valentine's Day 12x12 Sampler 2021

I had a lot of fun this morning putting this sampler together. I was looking for decorations for my desk at work and decided I w...

Mother's Day Event & Bingo

I am prepping for a Mothers Day event this Saturday by making several cards to sell...

I will be using retired, retiring and current stamps and accessories. I am making 4 of each design for a total of about 24-28 cards.

It's going to be fun squeezing this in after work each day til Saturday.... but is a great excuse to add creativity to my otherwise unfulfilling work day, right?

I'm trying to keep these as simple, but as beautiful as possible...

Stamp set: Dragonfly Dreams

Color: Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black and Whisper White

Accessories: Botanical Butterfly DSP, Softly Falling TIEF, and some retired Basic Black ribbon

I love the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper... it's artwork all by itself. It doesn't need much else to take away from it. So that's what I did here... DSP front and center. I added only a single stamped sentiment. The rest is paper. I cut the two flowers out of the DSP discard, but since there were straight edges on part of the flowers, I worked with it and made it purposeful.

Stamp Set: Strong & Beautiful

Color: Melon Mambo, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White

Accessories: Garden Impressions DSP, retired Decorative Corner punch and retired Melon Mambo Striped Organdy Ribbon

Stamp Set: Tea Together

Color: Highland Heather, Whisper White and Basic Gray

Accessories: Botanical Butterfly DSP, Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon, Highland Heather Stampin' Blends, retired Decorative Corner punch, and daubers

My goal was to keep this as simple and quick as I can... KISS! Keep It Simple, Silly!

Stamp Set: Jar of Love and Strong & Beautiful

Color: Pacific Point, So Saffron, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White

Accessories: Garden Impressions 6x6 DSP.

This card was fun to make... using the Garden Impressions DSP again, I stamped the apron on the DSP directly and cut out a floral apron... my favorite part was cutting the retired Calypso Coral ribbon to make the ties on the apron. I just let them dangle on the card for fun.

Stamp Set: Apron of Love

Color: Calypso Coral, Pacific Point and Whisper White

Accessories: Garden Impressions 6x6 DSP, retired Calypso Coral ribbon and Country Floral Dynamic TIEF

Tell me what card design is your favorite?
