Four Frames Four Card Suite

FINALLY got my set of "Four Frames" that coordinates with the Decorative Label punch!  This set is SOOO cute.  I used stamps from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" to fill in the frames & went from there.

Going clockwise from the top, I used the Hello Doily stamp with white embossing powder again and added just a few pearls.  I wanted to keep that simple since it's a sympathy card.  I rounded the corners with a punch to soften it.

Next, I made a Thinking of You card using paper from the Paisley Petals suite and punched up some interest (get it, "punched up" - okay, you can groan) with my scallop border punch, and added just a little bling with some Rhinestone embellishments.

The third card is a baby card suitable for a boy.  I stamped and cut out some images from Every Little Bit, used some DSP from Nautical Expedition (which is retiring from the summer mini August 31, so order now if you want this paper!!), trimmed it with Night of Navy grosgrain ribbon, and added a few Rhinestones.

Last, I used my Lace Ribbon Border punch to punch a strip from Whisper White cardstock and layered it under the flip side of the Paisley Petals paper used in card two and covered the seam with some more Night of Navy grosgrain.  I painted Paper Daisies with White Shimmer paint, put a teeny tiny pearl embellishment in the center of each flower, and one in the center of the rose on the stamped label.

I used Night of Navy cardstock and Night of Navy classic ink for all four cards, and each one took me about 15 minutes to make!

If you'd like to set up a workshop with some friends to make these four pretty cards, contact me!  I'd be glad to stamp with you!

Happy stamping!
