Stampin' Up! Come Sail Away True North

It's hard to tell on this card but the designer series paper, Come Sail Away is actually newspaper print.  With the newsprint are photographic images of sailboats, charts, etc.  The little knot in the lower right is from the coordinating dies.  I love the sepia look to the paper.  It works well to create this stacked collage look.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Bliss


My daughter, Julie, designed this card and sent it to me.  I love the soft,vintagey feel of this card.  The gold foil touches, embossed greeting, and the stitched label die add elegance.  This card can be used for so many occasions - showers, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, retirements and probably more I haven't thought of!

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature

One of my very good friends lost her father-in-law recently.  He bravely served our country and was laid to rest in a National Cemetery near his home. R. I. P. Mr Brown.

I prefer to keep sympathy cards rather simple.  I stamped a couple of the trees on the card, then stamped and die cut a couple of cards.  I adhered one with Stampin' Dimensionals and one with Mini Glue Dots to give some dimension to the trees.

I know that death is a part of life...I just wish I didn't have to send them...

Stampin' Up! Pressed Petals Easel Card

I participated in a 1:1 swap and decided to use Pressed Petals.  A 1:1 swap is making a mailing a card to one person.  In return, I received a card in the mail.

Easel cards are really easy to make.  Start with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of card stock, score it in half at 5 1/2", then score one of the halves at 2 3/4".  Design and embellish as desired.
