Happy Birthday USA! Hi friends, I thought I’d start out our weekly inspiration post with a clean and simple patriotic card – a rarity for me. Yes, I did a little glam but the stamp was just so beautiful I did my best not to obstruct. I used Hemstitch Rectangles to border the stamp. My top panel is A2 sized at 4.25 x 5.5 inches so the Hemstitch die is just the right size to border a full sized stamp. I used Marcheline Plume to add the decorative piece on top. The stamp I used is a wonderful stamp by Hobby Lobby, Oh Say CanYou See.
Today, as we’ve been doing every Tuesday, we’re recapping projects made this week by the Creative Team. This week you’ll see creations made with several collections: Venise Lace, Vintage Elegance and Graceful Borders!
Joanna Krogulec created an anniversary card with the Filigree Booklet (back in stock). I was blow away by this sweet creation! It was so very clever that she used one of the corner pieces from Graceful Frame Maker as a side pocket :-)
Teresa Horner used Francesca Label and Emmeline Treillage to combine a smashing color combination of teal and kraft. The kraft simply makes the two teal tones pop! She overlayed the flower background with the shadow die to create contrast against the dark teal background and polished things off with a sweet bud made using Cinch and Go Flowers II. Teresa also created two decorative boxes that are gorgeous – she added accents with Adorning Accents.
Melissa Bove created a sweet ensemble using Graceful Floral Lace in a card and a matching box where she echoed the Floral Lace and added a decorative top with the die and stamp from Giving Occasions. Sweet!
Anita Kejriwal had a border filled week. She combined the Graceful Bracket Border and Graceful Sweet Words Border for a sweet layered look. She used Graceful Floral Lace and Graceful Sweet Words Border for a lovely mitered look.
Thanks for joining us for a recap day – there’s lots of inspiration here.
