Another 6 cards from 3 papers

I love using this  pattern from Pam Wallace.  For these cards, I used Ivy Lane paper and chocolate cardstock. 

The lovely floral bouquet is a shape cut from Silhouette Studio. First, I reduced the size and thought it was way too small.  I recut the images again larger, but I did end up using both sizes.  I like the way they came out.

I used 2 stamp sets to stamp the Thank You and Happy Birthday.  D1552 Holiday tags  and D1361 Thank You (Retired).  I think I have one extra of the Thank You stamp set, so if interested, email me.

To get the Blush center on the circle images, I used a sponge dauber and a small spellbinders die.  I used the die to create an outside mask around the circle and sponged the inside using Blush ink.


  1. I love the color combos used, but mostly all the layering with the vines and flowers and leaves! I think it is the main focal point.

  2. Love this set of cards. The floral spray is so pretty with the Ivy Lane paper. Great use of the paper and colors. I have to try something like this with the CTMH Cricut cartridges.
