A Blooming Thank You


I feel as I am growing up in my cardmaking (I suppose, if you are counting by years in SU, I am now a teenager…oh my), I do notice my tastes changing.  This probably has a lot to do with current trends in just about everything, but more and more I find myself reaching for neutrals and creating simplicity.  This card is that.  Neutral simplicity.


I love this set called Bordering Blooms.  It is a FABULOUS border set.  And EASY.  I used TWO stamps on this card.  TWO.  The thanks comes from Endless Thanks (also a set I love, and it’s companion, Endless Birthday Wishes). I digress.


I used Tip Top Taupe and Sahara Sand and White (Sahara and Taupe are the monochromatic pairs… I just LOVE how SU gives us those options in their papers and inks).  And, I colored in the selected flowers with the white gel pin.  Added a some bling and THERE YOU GO.  Instant Thank You.  You can make a bazillion of these in no time.  It’s good to make several at once… then you have a stockpile for when you need.  OH… I didn’t get a pic of this… but that Bordering Blooms is also a GREAT stamp to put across the bottom of envelopes.  To add pizzazz.  Cause we all need pizzazz… even with Neutral Simplicity.


Another card from our card class…


So, here’s the 2nd card that I designed from the New Catalog Card Class we had on June 1.  This card features the Hostess set, Happy Flowers from the new catalog.  And Smoky Slate  It’s a BEAUTIFUL color  I’m so happy to finally have a light gray…


Smoke slate looks great with white.  Very clean and crisp.  And, I added some of the new In-Color… Crisp Cantaloupe, and a small scrap of Wisteria…  The white was cut out using the Window Frames Collection Framelits.  As, you can see, I love framelits.

The Happy Flowers Stamp fits perfectly into one of the Floral Frames Collection Framelits…


And, that sentiment is from the Hostess Set offerings as well, called Banner Greetings…..  Sorry, but the button is from the Spring Occasions Mini, which is no longer available.  But you could use any of our awesome new buttons…  I just had a bunch I needed to use up.  Cleaning out…

Here’s one last look…
