Catching Up With Cards

This week I'll finally be all caught up posting cards from our last team get-together and swap. And I have some original work to share with you as well. While I'm at it ... I have a lot of "catching up" to do with family and friends now that our moving adventure is behind us.

Curly Cute Thinking of You Hand Stamped Card Idea

Wouldn't this Thinking of You card be a great way to keep in touch with someone? I'm sure these pretty flowers would really brighten someone's day.  This card, created by Laura, uses Twitterpated Designer Series Paper die-cut with the Labels Collection Framelits and placed over a Blushing Bride layer embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The flower is created using the Fresh Vintage stamp set (free sale-a-bration gift) for the center, hand cut, and placed over Marina Mist card stock cropped with the new Blossom Punch. You can just see a wisp of Always Artichoke Seam Binding Ribbon for a leaf. The sentiment, from the Curly Cute stamp set, is stamped on a Whisper White banner.

Layered 5-Petal Flower Lattice Thanks Card

This pretty Thank You card, created by Kathy K, uses Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper behind Always Artichoke die-cut with the Lattice Bigz Die and the Big Shot. Basic Rhinestone Jewels give it a bit of bling. The pretty Bravo Burgundy flower is cropped using the 5-Petal Flower Punch, layering three flowers, which were sponged with Bravo Burgundy ink adding a little depth. A gold Glimmer Brad from the Basics Collection adds another bit of bling. The greeting, from the Fundamental Phrases stamp set, is stamped on River Rock card stock and cropped using the Word Window Punch and then layered on Bravo Burgundy cropped with the Modern Label Punch.

Speaking of catching up ... for those of you in the US, are you still getting adjusted to the time change?  I'm good to go and happy to be back on Daylight Savings Time. I LOVE having extra time in the evenings to enjoy the outdoors.

Thanks for visiting me today and have a great week!
