Texture Time

And it’s Saturday again! This week our theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Hop is to a make a card with texture. Before I get to my card, I would like to tell all you wonderful people who have looked at my creations over the MANY years, that this will be my last card! I am retiring from my full time job as a Professor at a local college and my dear husband and I will be spending our time traveling across this wonderful country! I thank you all for stopping by and I know that Connie, Debbie and everyone else will continue to share FANTASTIC inspiration!

Here’s the details…

  • Petal Pink – 4 1/4 x 11, fold in half
  • Basic White – cut out second to largest Perennial Postage die
  • Take a mask of the largest Thoughtful Expression Die, lay on top of panel, use Blending Brush and Petal Pink and Calypso Coral ink to create the inked label
  • Run panel through the flower 3D Basic Embossing Folder
  • Layer panel onto Lost Lagoon -3 3/8 x 4 5/8, add to card front
  • Basic White – cut out Hello from the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder/Die, color with Lost Lagoon Blends, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Lost Lagoon Tinsel Gems 3 Pack to finish off

And now for our latest collection…


We were excited to see that the FLOWER CART BUNDLE will carry over to the new 2024-25 Annual Catalog!  Build a scene by stamping bright and colorful flowers and filling the cute flower cart.  Use the FLOWER CART STAMPS to stamp the cart and canopy or the detailed FLOWER CART DIES to cut the pieces easily and quickly!

Our new Collection includes tutorials for three cards (one a special fold!) and a fun gift project!  See more details here!
