I made this card for my trip to Idaho.
I’ll be needing ‘thank you’s’ so this was a fast and easy way to create some simple yet sweet cards.
I am IN LOVE with Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite colors .
So the base is Gray Granite at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
Next is a layer of Blackberry Bliss at 5 1/4 x 4.
Then a layer of Frosted Floral Dsp at 5 x 3 3/4.
Using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I cut a larger oval in Blackberry Bliss, a next sized smaller in Whisper White.
I used the Happiness Surrounds stamp set images and Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive inks to create a flower image.
Snailed the white layer onto the blackberry layer then popped a few Dimensionals on and placed it on the card.
I added a thank you from All Things Thanks –and voila –card is done!
Not to leave out the envelope (no naked envelopes in my house!) – added the leaves in Old Olive.

I love water-coloring and I LOVE this Waterfront stamp set!
It is so versatile for so many occasions!
And before you laugh too hard, I DID create this video last Friday –April 13th! Just a week later I got to publish it!!!
Here is the finished card.
What do YOU think?
Check out my video below and see how fast and easy it is to make!
Here are the directions:
Base of card is Night of Navy CS cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″
Next is a layer of Soft Suede CS cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″and Snailed onto the base.
Next is a layer of Night of Navy CS cut at 5 x 3/3/4″ and Snailed onto the Soft Suede layer.
Take a piece of Water Color paper, cut to 3 x 4 1/2″ and start the FUN!
Starting from the bottom, I used Marina Mist ink for the water shadow.
Then using Night of Navy ink, I added the water lines.
Next I used Soft Suede and added the sandy beach and the trees.
Then using Old Olive, the mountains were stamped full strength and stamped off.
The sun was stamped with Crushed Curry –and the message in Night of Navy.
The inside is a piece of Whisper White stamped with the trees and mountains and I did the same thing to the envelope! (no naked envelopes in my house!!!)
VOILA!!!!! Fast and easy –and so so pretty.

I love how simple and FAST they were to make!
The base is the usual 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Whisper White. The layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
Then I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to ‘Big Shot’ the images. Popped that layer on with Dimensional ( under a piece of ribbon..just knotted once for an added dimension.
I used some Gold Foil paper to punch out a butterfly and ..voila!

I am a big fan of Embossing Paste.
This card, inspired by Stamping With Joy, uses the White Paste with the the Patterned Party Decorative mask.
It is EASY to use. It dries very quickly and the texture it adds is lovely. The Oh So Eclectic Bundle is fun to use and the colors are so fresh and pretty.
I also added a Faceted Jewel to the center of one flower…just another eye appealing dimension!
What do YOU think?
I love this card.
I love the Crumb Cake base.
I love the Soft Suede layer AND I LOVE the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.
Using Calypso Coral makes the image pop..
What do you think?
And coloring is one of my favorite things to do (I LOVED KINDERGARTEN!)
SO I used combinations of Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip inks ( and markers) with my Aqua Painter to paint the design of the basket from the Hanging Basket stamp set.
Added a piece of Calypso Coral ribbon and ta-da!
