Thanks for your Kindness Flower

Greetings friends!  I have a quick card to share with you today.  It’s turning out to be my favorite format and you’ve seen similar cards.  I guess I’m just tickled to have found a formula to make all occasion cards without being on the hook for hours.  I made several of these at one sitting and I’m rolling them out one by one.  This one features the Spellbinders Renaissance Hearts Pendant; it lends itself very easily to folding which gives the round motif some dimension.  Here I’ve used two Pendants and one Center.  I’ve also used the Renaissance Hearts Borderabilities however I’ve turned the border around and hidden the most recognizable part – it makes for nice contrast.

As is easiest in this card format, the sentiment fits nicely on Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio.  I used one of my very favorite papers, K & Co. Madeline.  In my Michaels, they have clearanced out everything on the K & Co. aisle.  I sure hope this means there is more K & Co. goodness on the horizon. 

 Tip:  To keep the folded Pendant in place and to keep its dimension, simply use glue dots on the eight points to cinch the flower in.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Wordsworth
Paper:  K & Co – Madeline, Bazzill
Ink:  SU Bravo Burgundy
Accessories:  Spellbinders Renaissance Pendant, Spellbinders Renaissance Hearts Borderabilities, Spellbinders Tags, Ribbon, Button

Speaking of more goodness on the horizon, have you checked out the Spellbinders Blog?  There is another Blog Frenzy in the works that begins on Thursday, July 9th on Debbie Olsons blog.  This Frenzy covers CHA releases and you will be amazed at the new stuff in store.  Speaking of that, if I seem quiet in the background, just know that I’m working on more papercrafting goodness to share.  Thanks for stopping by, I so appreciate it!

    OMG! This is my fav K&Co dp! Beautiful as always.
    Our Michael’s is putting K&CO on clearance also. I asked if that meant it was being discontinued and the clerk said that they’d received a huge shipment and had to make room for it!
    Thanks again for your time and talent sharingReplyCancel

    I LOVE these pendant cards you have made. I figured out how you folded and connected the Fleur de Lis pendant medallion but I am stumped with this Renaissance Hearts pendant medallion. When I look at the graphic of the pendant die from Spellbinders, it looks “inside out” compared to your folded pendant medallian. The little cut out diamond and swirls seem backwards on the Spellbinders graphic. I don’t have the die yet so I can’t look at the actual die. Is there any chance you could provide a tutorial on these for those of us who need just a little help figuring them out?

    As always, your work is so beautiful and inspirational!ReplyCancel

    You put so much love and time into your cards, you are truly an inspiration to me. Sorry I’ve been quiet lately…we moved (bought a new place) and baseball and softball was so consuming lol. I pray for your family every night, and when I see something especially beautiful, you are never far from my thoughts.
    When the time is right for you, I can’t wait for you to come and visit in Jax
    hugs my friend

  • Marlene IacuzziJuly 31, 2009 - 8:49 am

    I am so delighted that someone on Splitcoast’s forum referred me to your beautiful cards made with the pendants from Spellbinders. I am truly a romantic when it comes to card preferences and your designs are way above what Hallmark ever came up with. Truly art!. I didn’t appreciate the pendants until now. Since I recently discovered Nestabilities, it is going to take me a while to add all of the sets I want, but that’s ok. Thank you so much for sharing your talent so unselfishly. Do you do workshops?ReplyCancel

    I alway come here and look to see what is new..ReplyCancel
