Hope and Hugs…

LOVE this card! I love the colors and the simplicity. You can use this card for many different occasions. Hope & Hugs Flat

This card uses three of the colors from this year’s 2016-2018 IN COLORS — FLIRTY FLAMINGO (#141416), PEEKABOO PEACH (#141417) and DAPPER DENIM (#141414).

Hope & Hugs Stand Up

The flowers (or butterflies — what do you think they look like?!?) and the sentiments are cut from the SUNSHINE SAYINGS CLEAR-MOUNT BUNDLE (#142339). The flowers/butterflies pop due to the BASIC BLACK CARDSTOCK (#121045). The banner punch is used utilizing the SMOKY SLATE (#131202) CARD STOCK. Hope & Hugs Flat with envelope

Here is a close-up of the card. It was finished off by using STAMPIN’ DIMENSIONALS (#104430) under the POOL PARTY (#122924) CARDSTOCK. A touch of bling was added using RHINESTONE BASIC JEWELS (#119246).Hope & Hugs Close-Up

Sometimes…

I am a lover of quotes! They are posted all around my desk–both at home and at work. A “Quote a Day” email is shared by me on a list serve at work. It is amazing to me how quotes hit people at just the right point in their lives.

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you learn to appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself…and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”     Author: Marilyn Monroe

The last part of the quote above is featured on today’s card. This comes from the stamp set FEATHER TOGETHER (#141597).

Feather Together

I won this stamp set at our last team meeting. THANK YOU, Kelly Acheson, for the goodies that we received while spinning the prize wheel. SO MUCH FUN!!!

This card was part of another swap that I participated in that had to show some type of “movement”.

When the card was opened, that is where the movement piece came into play.  Look at those lovely, COLORFUL butterflies!

Here are the dimensions for this card.
BASIC BLACK (#121045) CARDSTOCK — 5 1/2” x 8 1/2″ (card base scored at 4 1/4”)
WHISPER WHITE (#100730) CARDSTOCK — 5 1/4″ x 4″

I cut the butterflies utilizing the BOLD BUTTERFLY FRAMELITS (#138135)  from each of our five new 2016-2018 IN COLORS. I just love, love, LOVE these colors!!!

Bold Butterflies     2016-17 In Colors

VERSAMARK (#102283) and GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER (#109129) were utilized for the sentiments on both the outside and inside–heat setting with the HEAT TOOL (#129053).

LOTS OF LABELS FRAMELITS (#138281) were used to highlight the sentiment on the front of the card. A butterfly was added to the front utilizing the PLAYFUL PALETTE DESIGNER SERIES PAPER (#141657). One of our RHINESTONE BASIC JEWELS (#119246) was added to the butterfly for a little bling. The card was then finished off with the BASIC BLACK SOLID BAKER’S TWINE (#141682).
