Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase our Passion for Punches! You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

My starting point was the strip of leftover Garden Impressions designer series paper. I highlighted the colors in the paper with the inks. Snippets of daffodil delight ribbon brighten the look and remind me of the sun.

The ruffled embossing folder used on the garden green cardstock adds a little interest. The Pretty Label punch fits the sentiment stamp perfectly even though it was not officially designed to do so. Take a look at your punches. They may fit other stamps in this way too.

All the supplies used plus the Big Shot machine…

With Sympathy CASEing the Blog Hop Design 12

It is nice to have sympathy cards on hand. This time I decided to make a custom card in the recipient’s favorite color, pink. I tried to include as much pink as there was on the swath from the Painted with Love specialty designer series paper. The dsp is the layer between the whisper white and blushing bride cardstock. I used our new mini dimensionals to pop up the whisper white layer to add a little ommph. It was too flat looking without that ommph.

The blushing bride card base looked a little bare so I stamped crosses so the tips could be seen towards the edges of the card. The inside is stamped too so I just need to address and sign the card.

I hope my card helps with the transition time.

This card was CASED from fellow demonstrator Sandy Ward and her Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop entry. I was actually inspired by the inside of her card. You can see her design by clicking here. I helped coordinate this Blog Hop. If you missed it, you can hop along here.

Thanks for stamping with me today,
