Live Beautifully Card

I am loving the CTMH May promotional paper and stamp set called Live Beautifully! I used them both to create this card. The bold black and white striped paper was used on the top of the card and I used the gold foil diagonal striped zip strip (found on the top of the patterned paper) to separate the white card base and the bold striped paper. The sentiment and flowers came from the Live Beautifully stamp.

I stamped the flowers on a piece of scrap cardstock in Pixie and Raspberry ink, then trimmed them out and adhered them to the card with Thin 3-D Foam Tape. I finished off the card with a few self-adhesive Gold Sequins.

Did you know that you can get the Live Beautifully Collection at a discount when you order one of the great bundles? The Live Beautifully Collection is only available during May while supplies last. Visit my website for details.

Two beautiful cards from Alyson Mayo.
I love the fancy Cricut cuts, Thinlits, and embossing that Alyson used on her cards.

Amy used one of my favorite papers (that will be retiring on Sunday) called Dreamin’ Big

Sweet card from Carol Loftus.
These sweet little envelopes are so cute! I love the tiny glitter hearts that Carol added too!

Isn’t the little giraffe in the tea cup “FUNN?”

Floral Encouragment Card

As I continue to share some of the beautiful handmade cards that were sent to us over the past few weeks, I knew that I just had to share this one with you. This is one of the cards that my sweet friend Amy McGrew sent to us. I fell in love with the color scheme she used along with the encouraging sentiment on the front. She used the Here for You stamp set which is one of my favorites.

Thank you so much Amy for thinking of us and for your thoughtful and caring words. Most of all, thank you for your friendship! Love you tons! xoxo
