Forever Greenery & Gold

This card was so “quick & easy,” I added a tiny embellishment to spend more time with it! Can you see it?

Gold on Green

 

I must confess, that tiny embellishment is also to cover up a missing “stitch.” This happened when I used a second Stitched Rectangles Die to make the white rectangle fit within the gold. It seemed to really show up against the gold, so I added some Faceted Dots and a Pearl. My tiny flower adds character, don’t you think?

The sentiment is from the Country Home Stamp Set, stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink, and glued to one of the fabulous shapes of Forever Gold Laser-cut DSP.

 

The card base is Shaded Spruce, topped with a layer of Whisper White Cardstock with a 2″ strip of Forever Greenery Designer Paper on the left side. I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder for added interest.

 

My inspiration was from Freshly Made Sketches:

Positive Thoughts with Ornate Layers

Today I’m sharing a card using a favorite “carry-over” stamp set from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog, Positive Thoughts. I was so excited when Stampin’ Up! created dies to coordinate with it (Nature’s Thoughts), and both are available in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. They are in my Product List below, and clicking on the pictures takes you to my store for ordering.

Hugs Prayers Love

 

The card base is Bermuda Bay, topped with a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, that I embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. Prior to embossing, I used the largest Ornate Layers Die to give it that pretty edge. Then, I taped a piece of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the white layer, and glued it to the card base.

This is currently my favorite ribbon, and the reason I chose it for my Host Code gift for the month of June. If you order a minimum of $50.00 in June, I will mail you the ribbon in July. You’ll find more details below.

 

Next, I used a second Ornate Layers Die to cut the center strip from Coastal Cabana Cardstock. Before attaching it with Dimensionals, I stamped “Hugs Prayers Love” from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.

 

The sprig was created with a Positive Thoughts Stamp, VersaMark, White Embossing Powder, Pool Party Cardstock, the Heat Tool, and a Nature’s Thoughts Die.

The last detail was adding a bow of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, and some Woven Threads Sequins.

 

Have you played in a Tic Tac Toe challenge? My card would fit in two rows: flowers, die-cut, embossing or girly, die-cut, friendship. It’s fun to design a card to fit the parameters, and you should give it a try!
