A Modern Birthday Bouquet

Hi Crafty Friends,

We hope you are all well and ready for a fun and easy card design. This design is to celebrate the birthday of a young, vivacious woman. She has a modern flair so hopefully, it will brighten her day.

It all starts with the Bold Stripe Background from Concord & 9th. This background really sets the tone! It is simple and bold. Then, by adding the bouquet, it adds a feminine touch.

Splendid Spruce Trees

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am sharing another quick, but high impact card design. As usual, I am dashing around to get everything done so my friends and family know I view the holiday time rather loosely. I do manage to get all the cards and greetings mailed by Christmas but likely don’t arrive until after… but it is the thought that counts, right? (At least that is what I keep telling myself – haha!)

These three cards use the same Penny Black Splendid Spruce stamp set and the Mistletoe Greetings by Concord & 9th.

Vintage Poinsettia Christmas Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today’s post features a beautiful vintage-y feeling stamp and die set from Concord & 9th, Christmas Florals. It is elegantly composed and lends itself to coloring in many different ways. I chose to use the new Papertrey Ink’s ink cubes for my watercolors. There are so many awesome colors and many have that vintage-y feel, making it a perfect fit.

Hello To Autumn Leaves

Hi Crafty Friends,

Are you seeing signs of Autumn yet? Here at home in the San Francisco area, we are just now getting a few cooler days and light breezes. It is a welcome change from the unusually hot summer we’ve had. The slight change in weather and the new “Lovely Leaves” stamp and die set by Ink To Paper, inspired this Autumn card design.

By the way, we are lovin’ the Ink To Paper collection. Check them all out here.
