Warm and Beachy Congratulations

20121001-183720.jpg

I am very excited to share this project.  I made this card for my little sister, who just started her first job!  I couldn’t be more proud of her!!  This card has a special beach inspiration and I found the perfect color palette on Seeds (see below).   As her new job will be close to the ocean, I thought Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Sahara Sand, and Soft Suede would make Warm and “Beach-y” Congratulations card.

International Bazaar Loves Pool Party

Featuring: Guest Stamper, Debra

Pool Party Anniversary5

 

International Bazaar Designer Series Paper is a classy backdrop for this lovely Anniversary card.  The layout is very functional for an at-work-pass-around card as the multiple panels are minimally jazzed and ready for signatures.  What a thoughtful way to celebrate an employee’s one-year anniversary with the organization.  I love unexpected recognition, I’m sure the recipient will be delighted!  You know you have a great hobby when the results can be shared to spread smiles!

Thanks for sharing, Debra!

Summertime with Melon Mambo

Summertime Melon Mambo

 

Using my One Sheet Wonder DSP from yesterday, I created this Congratulations card.  I layered Old Olive Cardstock, Melon Mambo Cardstock and Calypso Coral Cardstock to bring out the coordinating inks in my custom DSP.

This card truly highlights the stamping craft.  So often we are lost in embellishments and fancy tools.  With this card I returned to the foundation of my love of cardmaking….STAMPING! :)
