Pause

I created this card to send to my mom. I like to make my cards for her using just StampinUp products so she can display them to her customers. This was my first inking of Elements of Style. I love the set, but I feel everything has been done with it already. Not that what I do is ever unique, but my preference is to come up with something of my own. Anyway, I do like how this turned out – and more importantly, mom loved it!

To make the background, I stamped the “gratitude” stamp from Define Your Life and then went back and overstamped with the flourish image from the Elements of Style set.

So, the title of this post is “pause” for a reason. This is my last post for a few months. In December we will be moving to Colorado. I still think we are nuts for moving in winter from Hawaii to Colorado, but I’m not in charge of the schedule, lol. While I get to fly on a plane, my craft supplies will be boxed up and then taken on a boat – for 6 weeks! If I really wanted I could probably try to make a few packets of stuff to take with me, but really, that is just more trouble than it is worth (especially as I only own one trimmer and it is a gargantuan).

I appreciate those of you who come and visit my blog and I hope you’ll come back in February when I should have some fresh cards to share.

  1. Beautiful card! I adore the background paper you made…it’s just so pretty! I also love the lace, button & twine combo. Truly gorgeous card!
    Oh, and don’t worry too much about moving to CO right now! Our temps have been in the high 50’s/low 60’s and no real snow to speak of yet!

  2. What a pretty card. Love what you did with the background!

    If you can’t craft until February, buy yourself a little sketchbook to keep track of your ideas until you can create again. Good luck with the move.

  3. What a beautiful card! I have seen this stamp set in a few places and it always makes me sigh – so elegant! I love what you’ve done here, especially with the lace as a finishing touch. All the best with your move! I hope that it goes smoothly and that it’s a wonderful winter for you after all :0)!
