I love the Flower Patch stamp set and was so sad to see it retire. The large flower image always made me think of fireworks so I thought it was a perfect image to be the star on a 4th of July card. For the smaller flower, I stamped the flower in Versa Mark on the Bashful Blue cardstock. In addition to using some Poppy Parade to stamp the inside of the small flower, I also punched out a small circle in Poppy Parade, adhered it to the center of the flower, and added some Crystal Effects to give it some shine and dimension. I masked the word “you” from the sentiment so it features “Celebrate” instead of “Celebrate You”.

Eastern Palace Suite

Today I participated in the Tic Tac Toe challenge. I selected the right diagonal row of blue, rectangle and twine.

I decided to use the paper and stamp set from the Eastern Palace Suite. I love the fonts and sentiments used – I am sending this card out in the mail as a thinking of you card.

Wedding Day Bouquet

My cousin is getting married this weekend. He and his soon-to-be wife met during their college orientation and have been together ever since. They are such a sweet and loving couple and I’m so excited for them to get married!

For their wedding card, I knew I wanted to use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set both for the image as well as the incredible sentiments.

I stamped two sentiments on the inside; I love how it captures exactly what I’d want to wish someone on their wedding day and does so in beautiful fonts!

To pull everything together, I stamped a single tulip to coordinate with the card and “For the Newlyweds” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set on the envelope.

I used tape runner to adhere some of the tulips and then I also used some dimensionals to give the card some depth.
