So Grateful for You Card with Ornate Garden Suite

So-grateful-card-stampin-up-ornate-thanksToday's cardmaking idea was created with the Ornate Garden Suite Collection (English) [154153].

The thank you sentiments in this Ornate Thanks stamp set are absolutely wonderful as you can see above and also on the two cards in this blog post.

Isn't it great that our Daisy Punch [143713] and Medium Daisy Punch [149517] coordinate so well with the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper [152488]. Love it when a plan comes together!

Here's the video tutorial for today's card...let's take a look!

Handmade Thinking of You Cards with Peaceful Poppies Elements

Thinking-of-you-cards-swap-3

On Saturday morning’s Facebook Live on Ink and Inspirations with Lisa Brown, we made some “thinking of you” cards with the Peaceful Poppies Elements [151327] from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. 
 
I will be using these cards and a similar design for a swap with my stamp club in SE Texas. Next month is a service project and we will be sharing these cards with an assisted living facility.  These are also so appropriate to send now during this time of social distancing.
 
The Peaceful Poppies Elements pack is a tiny treasure of bits and pieces to add that special touch to your cards. Using these elements paired with the beautiful Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper [151324] will enable you to make some special cards for your family, friends, church families, and others!
 
Here is the video for the card seen above...
