Gel A Tins – The Simple Life card

19 Apr

I have made a very clean and simple card for you today.

I am using the set called WILD THINGS.

This has got to be my favorite Gel A Tins set!

I decided to go simple with my colors.

You can see my main color is white.

I have been working a lot with Grafix Arts paper products.

They have amazing Vellum and all my white paper is vellum.

(sorry you can see the adhesive, it must have been the time of night, since you can’t see the the adhesive indoors!)

I love how white embossing powder looks on white vellum!  So pretty!

 I also have used Grafix Arts Black Chipboard to make the frame for my sentiment. It is amazing, since it is black all the way through!  PERFECT for mounting and framing things!

 I wanted to create a peaceful setting with the placement of the flowers and butterflies..

OK

 I thought this would be the perfect for someone going through a rough spot.  Someone who needed to take time out and enjoy the little things in life!

Simpler times!

(I think I need to mail the card to myself!!)

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

I Heart {ippity} Sweetest card EVER!!

17 Aug

Sometimes I go crazy putting everything I have into a project!

Today’s card is utilizing the {ippity} set called:

New Season, New Wonder

I adore this set.

This started in my head as a pretty simple card.

But then what sometimes happens is that these cards take on a life of their own.

 I get caught up in my supplies, not to mention the fabulous stamp set!

This has elements of about all my favorite things in the world!

Authentique Paper(blue), American Crafts Cardstock(white), Canvas Corp Paper(polka dot), Cherries, Beads and Chipboard!

I have to point out how thrilled I am with Authentique Paper‘s durability.

 By far it stands up the best to embossing and sanding compared to any other paper I have used!

 Bravo Authentique Paper!

Don’t you love that glass cherry in the center?  I have no idea where I got them!

I also love the color combo or blue and red together, so there is another favorite covered!

I would love for you to visit the I Heart {ippity} blog and see the other fabulous designer’s cards!

Have a great day and I hope you have enjoyed my post today!!
