Elegant Thank You

Here is a clean and simple, yet elegant Thank you card. I love the black and cream papers from DCWV La Creme stack. I added a bit of turquoise to punch it up a little and then made my own flower with two different sized flower punches by Fiskars and a fun black velvet button (found it in an assortment button pack). The sentiment is from the Thank you stamp set from The Paper Studio. I hope you have a blessed Sunday and remember to thank someone in your life this week.

Thank You Very Much

This card was CASED from the current Card Creation Magazine. I changed the papers and used a scallop circle punch and cut the slits to create the flower. I also followed through by finishing the inside, which I have not done much in the past. I must say, it is more work, but I really like the complete package. Let me know what you think.

Chalkboard Technique

Wow! Where have I been. I have been very busy creating and have not posted in a few weeks. I hope I was missed and now I have some cute projects to share. This card was inspired by my friend Sara's blog She had a beautiful card with this chalkboard technique, so I thought I would give it a go. I did not think mine was as vibrant as hers and I recently purchased a new white stamp pad and I will see if it makes a difference.

Retreat card # 12

Here is another sweet, but simple card made with the Cricut and A Child's Year cartridge. I used the scallop square nestabilities and a flower punch with rhinestone centers.

Retreat card # 11

This card was made with the Cricut and A Child's Year cartridge. I cut the grass in green cardstock and the girl in black cardstock. The stamps are Expressions by Inkadinkado.
This was a very simple, but sweet card. I just love this cartridge and all the beautiful images.
