Cruising for a week, home not even a week and I had a ton on my plate catching up at work and preparing for our annual fundraiser to benefit our local Komen Affiliate.  Yesterday we held our 10th annual Stampin’ for a Cure fundraiser and we raised $5800!!!  I am so thrilled with our success.  It was a fun day of stamping and prizes and hearing stories of survivors.  Today’s project is my project for Stampin’ for a Cure.  All our participants were able to make this card at my station.

Stampin' for a Cure 2017All ages loved stamping! Stampin' for a Cure 2017Silent auction items

Stampin' for a Cure 2017My display for the day…

Creative Tips:

  1. My project features the lovely leaves in Colorful Seasons and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  This leaf is delicate and super pretty and gives this card a lot of impact yet it is simple to make for a new stamper.
  2. I wanted to send everyone home with a card they could use anytime but is also in line with our current fall season.  Who wouldn’t want to receive this pretty card in the mail this fall?
  3. This design features white space as much as it features the images and embellishments.  I love how the white space sets off the featured items.

I can hardly believe that this is our 100th Hop together!  Wowsers!  We have shared our beautiful creations with you 100 times today 🙂  I thought our anniversary Blog Hop called for something extra special & when I think extra special lately I pull out Colorful Seasons…I just can’t get enough of this stamp set!

Creative Tips:

  1. A combination of gold foil leaves, watercolored leaves and stamped leaves add super duper interest to this card.
  2. A light watercolor wash in the background (Dapper Denim) sets off the leaves and the spritz of Dapper Denim is the perfect final touch.
  3. “Just Breathe” is exactly what we all need to be doing with all the crazy weather the last few weeks!  I have been praying non-stop for everyone affected by these terrible storms.

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, Elizabeth Price’s lovely designs.

Summer is flying by as always….I can’t believe how fast it is going!  Fall has many charms though not the least of which are the changing aspens in Colorado….so gorgeous!  This set doesn’t feature aspen leaves but I cannot get enough of this leaf framelit, it is perfection 🙂

Creative Tips:

  1. Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist color combo happening here and they are so beautiful together!  I cut one of the leaves in watercolor paper and colored it with Lemon Lime Twist and then topped it with Wink of Stella…yum!
  2. The fonts in this set are so beautiful!  They are modern and have a perfect heft to them.
  3. Heat embossing the leaves in white in the background gave lots of interest to the watercolor background.
