I’m a firm believer that the answer is usually close by, right under your nose or just under a prayer.    How often have you seen someone who is struggling and the answer is clear but they’re so paralyzed they can’t move forward?  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been there myself – sometimes it just takes some soul searching and a little nudge to know the way to go.   That’s the inspiration that led me to create the Looking for A Sign set – it’s a light-hearted encouragement set that prompts a person to move forward and lets them know you are behind them all the way.  Yes these things take their time but reassurance is always welcome.  The set is anchored with an ornate stacked cascade of flourishes that can be paired up with more than nine different nudging phrases.  It’s different and I have to say that my personal set is getting a work out!  This set is close to my heart, thanks for letting me gush about it!  I have two card making ideas to share today using the new set along with a set of dies (Spellbinders Custom for JustRite – Filigree Corners) also re-released by popular request.  The first card looks involved but could not be simpler.  I cut six of the smaller corners arranging three at each end with points to the center.  Then I took JustRite Vintage Labels Three and popped it on top, stenciling it to make it stand out.  That left me a hole that was a perfect opening for the stamp!   I finished off by stamping my sentiment on the banner from JustRite Vintage Label and Banners Die(Card size 8-1/2″ x 5″)

Next up is a blue card using the sentiment by itself.  For this card I pulled out one of the phrases and made it the main part of the card.  This one has a couple of layers but uses Spellbinders Elegant Labels Four, Spellbinder Labels Twenty Four, Spellbinders Venetian Motifs, Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags.  For stamps I used Looking for A Sign and Filigree Journal Covers.

So a little bit you may want to know about this card that you can’t really see by looking – it has a Filigree Hinged Card Base with the hinge pointed toward the back.  The back is a piece of card stock cut to 4-5/8″ x 5-1/5″ then on the inside (back) you have a design paper piece of card stock the same size to hide the hinge.  You might ask why I did that….I took a chunk out of the center of Elegant Labels Four to make a more compact card – I cut 2-5/8″ from each edge and discarded the center before taping the two pieces together at the center.  (Okay, so that’s the background)

Winner of the Clear Case Giveaway

by on

A_Note_Simply_My_Friends_RM
Hi there friends – yes, there are two posts today.  I wanted all the winner stuff in one post so that you all could pop in and leave your name if it is you!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you for the information you left, it will be very helpful in my planning as I sit down and decide what I’ll be working on during the months ahead.  I’m still tallying the answers but wanted to let you know that I always try to state what I’m using when I make my cards but you are always  free to use the items you like and substitute from your stash.

These days I  am finding that I only use one or two sheets from each paper pack I buy so for budget reasons I’ve become a ‘hybrid’ crafter by printing select digital papers from time to time (I typically don’t do digital stamps but never say never).   I always print in quick mode so the paper is not saturated – I need light color, not the same coloring like a scrapbooker or a photographer needs.  I typically stay out of photoshop to print, electing to use just the windows print facility – quick and easy.

On to our winner, random.org picked comment number 373 – here’s the comment:

Sending Love with Delicate Doilies

by on July 29, 2013

Spellbinders Delicate Doilies, Spellbinders Framed Petite Labels Embossing Folder, Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight, Spellbinders Labels Seventeen, Spellbinders Venetian Motifs,
Good morning blog friends!!  Remember that today is the last day to enter your name for the Clear Cases Giveaway – you can click back to July 24th or click for the link.  I have another card making idea to share today with a small card – the inspiration was this pretty new doily die from Spellbinders called Spellbinders Delicate Doilies.  I made a shaped card with a Hinged Cardbase.  It’s small enough that I could use Spellbinders Framed Petite Labels Embossing Folder, just using the lower part of the folder to get the lines.   Dainty Doilies is the matching stamp set from JustRite and I added Birthday Vintage Labels Four and Get Well Labels Twenty to make my sentiment.  I used several other Spellbinders Nestabilities – Spellbinders Decorative Labels EightSpellbinders Labels Seventeen and Spellbinders Venetian Motifs.
