Keep Calm and Cry A Little

Hey Stampers !!

Happy Thanksgiving !! Well, Canadian Thanksgiving anyways. LOL. Nothing like a long weekend right ?? We did our turkey dinner yesterday, so today is all about relaxing. The hubby and I also went for an amazing quad (ATV) ride yesterday. I got some great pictures of the fall colors and beautiful fall landscape we have around here in Central Newfoundland. So gorgeous !! A great time !! Yay for Fall, my fav season !!

My project today is an idea that I cased from Shana over on www.stressfreestamping.blogspot.com. I used a few different colors and a tweaked it a bit, but this is ultimately her card. LOL It uses the Carry On and Flowering Flourishes stamp sets, and I love how it turned out !! Take a look !!


How stunning is that !?!? That beautiful sentiment is from the Carry On hostess stamp set. I used my markers to color it in so that it was in a couple different colors. I then used my Labels Framelits to pop it out. Beautiful !! This color combo of Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery and So Saffron is SO nice. I may have to put this on permanent rotation !! LOL I used my Stampin' Write Markers for colouring in the flourishes, so easy and beautiful !!

The Raspberry Ripple main layer was embossed using the (retired) Finial Press folder. Then those 2 Marina Mist pieces were die cut with the Large Scallop edgelit. Love those edgelits !! Lastly the little flowers were punched with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack, folded up a bit for some dimension and finished off with a rhinestone to the middle. Voila !! So cute.

Well, I hope you like my card today !! It would be perfect to give to someone who may be having a hard time right now ... let them know you care and are thinking about them !! Nothing brightens a person's day like a beautiful handmade card !! Have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
