Stripe and Floral Thanks Note Card

I am working on notecards for a different project.

Kitchen countertop got installed yesterday – it looks like a kitchen. No running water yet (that is scheduled for TODAY). I was so worried about the counter – I selected it from a 6 x 6 inch sample. Had nightmares about it Sunday night – “what if I chose WRONG? WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE IT??” All is good. I am happy with how it turned out.

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral, Kaleidoscope DSP, Pool Party, So Saffron, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, die – Taylored Expressions, punches – All Night Media (small flower), Fiskars (large flower), Stampin’ Up! (dots), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

Floral Photo Note Card

I have to admit, I am running behind this week.

The kitchen renovation is almost done (waiting for countertop to be installed, then on to backsplash), we have no workers in the house this week. (Note to self: scrub floor while they are out!)

I have a bunch of medical appointments over the next 10 days (kidney stone made me schedule every “annual exam” that I had been avoiding!).

So, I am flying by the seat of my pants, card wise. I pulled out my floral scrap folder, and found 3 flowers and a piece of foliage. The sentiment and frame were in other scrap folders. I mounted the 3 flowers at different levels (back coral is flat, yellow is on glue dots, front coral is attached to back of frame, frame is mounted with foam adhesive), so it has a very nice shadowbox effect in person.

Have a good Wednesday!

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), Stampin’ Up! (flowers, foliage), Taylored Expressions (frame), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder Clear.

Fluttery Floral Thank You Card – Essentials by Ellen January 2017 Mix It Up Challenge with Avery Elle

e-by-e-jan-2017-mix-it-up-floral-thank-you

This month, Ellen Hutson’s Essentials by Ellen January 2017 Mix It Up Challenge is with Avery Elle.

Luckily, I have ONE Avery Elle stamp set – Many Thanks.

So…off I go to work on a card. And, looking at my bulletin board, the inspiration for the Essentials by Ellen PinSights Challenge (that closed on January 3rd) is still hanging BECAUSE it has important Offspring3 information stuck to it (Post-It notes, that I still need for this week). RED WHITE and GOLD got embedded in my brain.

Somehow, I combined the expired challenge and the new challenge. When I realized this, it was too late, I had already glued all the vellum flowers (die cut with the Bold Blooms Matching die set). I was committed! (or SHOULD BE, maybe!)

Here is the (expired) PinSight Challenge inspiration:
