Flourishing Sympathy


The card I have to show you today doesn't use any sneak peek Holiday catalog items.  It is just a fairly simple sympathy card using the Better Together and Flourishing Phrases stamp sets. I have seen several used in a similar way on Pinterest and thought I would put one of my own together.


I chose Peekaboo Peach ink for the flourish in the background and stamped the image twice but only inked one time.  


To add a little texture, I added some enamel dots randomly and on part of the flourish image as well.

Supplies:
Better Together, Flourishing Phrases
Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach ink
Whisper White, Pool Party card stock
Petal Garden dsp

Painted Harvest



 There is a stamp set called Painted Harvest in the Holiday catalog (and it pairs with the Painted Autumn designer series paper).  I really like the water colored images and the sentiments in the set and used it on today's card. 


I started out stamping the flower with Sweet Sugarplum ink and then took the flower that is just a little bit smaller and stamped it over the top with Fresh Fig.  The center of the flowers are stamped with Crushed Curry ink.


I also added a little bit of Wood textures designer series paper and some Venetian lace trim behind the sentiment.

Supplies:
Painted Harvest
Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Sweet Sugarplum, Crushed Curry ink
Very Vanilla, Tranquil Tide card stock

Be Merry


The Holiday catalog project I have to share with you today uses the Christmas around the world designer series paper pack along with the Every Good Wish stamp set and Stitched felt embellishments.  There are several Christmas themed designer series paper packs and there is another one that actually coordinates with the Stitched felt embellishments, but I decided to mix the collections up a bit on this card.


I stamped in Real Red and Night of Navy ink and chose those colors along with Whisper White for the card stock colors.


Supplies:
Every Good Wish
Real Red, Night of Navy ink
Whisper White, Real Red, Night of Navy card stock

Spookly-Licious Box


Continuing with the sneak peek projects...I again used the Spooky Night designer series paper, this time to decorate a clear tiny treat box.  


For the front of the box, I stamped my sentiment from The Little Things on Pumpkin Pie card stock and punched it with the 2" circle punch.  Then I stamped it again on Very Vanilla and cut out the banner, popping that piece up on the Pumpkin Pie circle.


The boxes are super cute and would be great treat holders for Halloween or any other occasion.
