Pretty Pansies

More Watercolor Wonder. I was very sorry when it was retired. But, alas, we all must move on. However, I still need to use what I've got. This is similar to the Triple Time Stamping technique, but I just cut the center portions out of the DSP and layered card stock underneath.

You're the Friend

It's been a while since I've posted anything. Between having a mega-cold, going on a fun vacation, then getting another mega-cold (yep, two times), I haven't made the time to upload anything. I have been making cards, but slacking on the upload.

Getting back into the swing of things, I'm posting this card I made for a wonderful, giving woman, and friend. She is truly going above and beyond, unselfishly, helping someone else in need.

I found the box design at addINKtive designs.

Box of Flowers

I made this card, just because I wanted to make a box card that was overflowing with flowers. I didn't have anyone in mind when I was working on it. Today, I found out that a business acquaintance is in need of prayers. Along with my prayers, I'm sending her this Box of Flowers.

Because it is overflowing, I also needed to make an over-sized envelope to place it in. Fortunately, I have Stampin' Up!'s Envelope Punch Board, so that was an easy task.

Thoughts of Sweet Sorbet

Yesterday I began a One-Sheet-Wonder journey. I've done this before, but found another cutting template, and decided to use it to eliminate some retired DSP. Plus, it will give me a collection of cards I can later use as a gift.

The circle on the bottom card is from the round opening on the top card.

Cardstock- Basic Black, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White
DSP - Sweet Sorbet
Ink - Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Pansy punch, Circles Collection thinlits, Stripes embossing folder, Pearl and Rhinestone jewels (colored with Blendabilities), Pool Party ribbon

Ink - Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Memento Tuxedo Black

It didn't matter how much I wanted to escape to make cards these last few days, it was not to happen. Finally, I found some quiet time all to myself. I found the sketch design at Operation Write Home, so it was easier than usual to visualize what I was going to create.
