Close to my Heart has a new annual catalog and a new seasonal catalog that have just been released. I have been having so much fun playing with the new Bloom and Grace sunflower patterned paper. (Sunflowers always remind me of my mom who used to decorate her kitchen and bathroom with that theme.) I made a flurry of cards and would love to know which ones you like best.
The dotted stripe is from the zip strip. The sentiment is from Sentiments by Melissa Esplin with Espresso Ink. I used an Earth Brown Tri-Blend marker to outline the sentiment panel.
The background patterned paper is from Lovely paper. The fussy cut sunflowers were embellished with Lemonade Shimmer Brush and Toffee Shimmer Brush. My card layout was inspired by a recent Global Designs Project sketch.
The sentiment is from Every Little Thing Cardmaking with Thin Cut Dies embossed in Copper Tinsel Embossing Powder and matted with Espresso Card Stock. The center stripe is retired Copper Shimmer Trim. I'm entering this card into the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge #387 which can be found here.
The sentiment is from Birthday Greetings and was stamped in Toffee Ink. Once again I used the Earth Brown Tri-Blend Marker to edge each of the paper pieces which are mounted on Fern Card Stock. My card layout was inspired by this Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch #474:
That's all for now with this beautiful paper! Please leave me a comment with your favorite card noted.
Now it's time to head over to Joyce Hauck's blog --I'm sure you'll be inspired by what she has to share.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
