Rounded Squares

That is what I did to the squares....I rounded 2 of the corners. I cased this card; big surprise!; but I'm not sure where from. I just liked the idea. It uses Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White card stock and Beyond the Garden DSP. The punches are the corner rounder, 1 1/4" square, 1/2" circle and the Blossom Bouquet Triple punch. The embellishments are a silver brad and Daffodil Delight Taffeta ribbon(retired), Stamp set is from the Swirls & Curls Verses hostess set in the current Summer Mini catalogue.
 I used my Big Shot and the Vintage Wall paper embossing folder to add texture and interest to the background.

I hope you have had a great weekend! I've had a really busy week! Hopefully next week will be more normal.
Thanks for stopping by,

I really like it and made 2 right away, I gave one to my sister when I was visiting for Easter.

It uses the Bold Blossoms stamp set in the Summer Mini and the new Blossom Bouquet Triple punch.
 In side the box are 4 cards and envelopes.

Paper: Baha Breeze, Old Olive, 
Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive DSP from Brights stack

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive

Hello Blossoms, again!

I cased this card from a fellow demo but I do not know who it is.(If it is you please let me know and I will give you credit) I have a habit of saving pictures for inspiration and when I go back to use them sometimes there is no indication as to where I saved it from.

The card is an example of a "Joy fold" card and it also uses the imbedding technique.

Stamp set: Hello Blossoms

Paper: Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Blushing Bride DSP from In-Color stack

Ink: Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz

Accessories: Pear Pizzazz Satin Ribbon, Blossom Bouquet Triple Punch, Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing folder
It is a different card with a soft look.

 I hope you all have a great weekend! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Blossoms!

 I made this card as the make-n-take for a workshop I had last month. It was fun ans easy to make. The card was designed by Linda Heller at Stamping School
The card fits into a  small open ended envelope from Stampin'Up!

Paper: Textured Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Beyond the Garden, DSP , Daffodil Delight

Ink: Pacific Point and Wild Wasabi Stampin'Write Markers

Stamps: Hello Blossoms, Charming

Accessories: Daffodil Delight Taffeta ribbon (retired) Basic Pearls, Jewelery Tag punch, White Bakers Twine

This is a perfect card for a make-n-take because you can get 4 cards from one 12x12 sheet of cardstock.

Hope everyone is having a good day!
