Life is Grand

Happy Thursday everyone! OOOOO…it’s SPRING and it is actually feeling a bit like it – AWESOME!!!!  This week we have a GREAT color inspiration…

I LOVE the doily builder framelits (BUGGER that they have run out of them!) but I thought they would be perfect in these colors…

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Subtle Embossing Folder, layer onto Grey Granite 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add to card front
  • Grey Granite – cut out the larger open doily, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 5/8 x 4 1/2, stamp greeting using Mango Melody, cut into banner, add to card front using dimensionals
  • So Saffron – cut out medium sized doily, add to card front

Nothing but Neutrals

And it’s Saturday again! This week our theme is nothing by neutrals.  Well instead of adding some of the ‘colors’ that are in our neutral collection, I decided to really keep it just neutrals and go with a crumb cake/early espresso/whisper white theme.

This is actually the second card I made for this challenge.  I just wasn’t feeling my other one so decided I needed to do something different.  I like this one MUCH better!

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/2, cut out using the Delicate Lace Edgelits, add to card front
  • Crumb Cake – cut out 4 of the berry stems (Flourish Thinlits)
  • Early Espresso – cut out one of the 5 leaf stem (Flourish Thinlits), layer all together and add to card front
  • Crumb Cake – 3/8 x 1 7/8, stamp greeting using Early Espresso, cut into banner, add piece of Linen Trim behind it, fray edges, add to card front

Yep…that’s all there is to it!  And I got to use some things from the main catalog that have been ignored lately!
