Congratulations on your graduation!


I chose to interpret the paned element on the sketch as a Stitched Mini Scalloped Square and intended adorn one corner with Pressed Flowers, but the bouquet grew. The flowers are so much fun to stamp!   The horizontal element is a scalloped die from Verve.

Thanks for stopping by,
Christine

This is another card created for an upcoming family celebration.  The coming year promises several happy events.  The stamps are MFT's Pressed Flowers with matching dies, and the Verve sentiment (retired)  is stamped on a Reverse Confetti tag from the Tall Tags Trio.

SSS: Use Dies or Punches---Best Wishes to the Mr. and Mrs.


Our family has many special events to celebrate in the coming year, and I decided to start cards for these special occasions before summer break comes to an end.  I just finished this card, piling on the dies.  The scalloped edge is cut from Papertrey Edgers, the little round tag was created from a MFT cross-stitched circle stack and a tiny heart from PTI, and the center panel is a Downton Abbey frame  with pretty embossed details.

Thanks so much for visiting,
Christine

AHSC 272: Celebrate your day!


Such lovely layers in this week's sketch!  I grabbed a pretty stack of papers and began to choose solids and prints for the various layers and went to work die cutting:  Reverse Confetti Edgers, PTI Heart, MFT Stitched Flowers and Mini Scalloped Rectangle.  The gorgeous sentiment is from Verve's Poppy Birthday.

Thanks for visiting.  Hope you find time to play along at AHSC!

Starry Birthday

I was blessed to win a prize from My Favorite Things,  and this sweet image was part of my order.  I had fun experimenting with the image using watercolor markers, pencils, and paper piecing.  I settled on this version which includes colored pencils and paper piecing.  Thanks, MFT, for the happy mail!

Thanks for visiting,
Christine
