Now... on to my cards.  My first card (above) was created on a base of Rich Razzleberry card stock.  I used the corner stamp four times to create my largest flower, by setting them points in.  I layered that on a SB Medallion 2  and layered that on a layer of the Ornate Borders and Flowers set frame which was stamped with Rich Razzleberry and die cut with the Custom Ornate Borders and Flower die.  On the top of my dimensional flower is the small flower from this same set.  My background is stamped using the Ornate Background, and the sentiment is from the Ornate Border Sentiments set and die cut with the custom Ornate Borders and Flowers die.  The white layer is embossed with a Sizzix folder, and the die cut border beneath the white layer is from the ODBD Custom Cathedral Window and Border Die set.   The only embellishments are white pearls.

 
Our Daily Bread designs stamps: Ornate Borders and Flowers, No Words, Serve the Lord, ODBD Custom Ornate Borders and Flower die, ODBD Crocheted Border die

My second card is much more shabby chic.  I used the frame from the Ornate Borders and Flower set, stamped with Memento London Fog ink and die cut with the Custom Ornate Borders and Flower die.  I stamped the sentiment from the No Words set, which is dear to my heart since I submitted those sentiments to Kelley as an idea for a set.  I find the need for these sentiments frequently, so I hope others will like them as well!   I created this different fold by cutting my front in half, and adding a Fancy Corner Die cut.  I also used the Crocheted Border stamp from the Serve The Lord set and the custom crocheted border die to cut it, stamping it on some of the MME design paper.  My papers are Baked Brown Sugar and the designer paper is My Mind's Eye.


Inside, I stamped two of the corner images from the Ornate Borders and Flower set.  I finished off with some wrinkled seam binding and tiny flowers, and a couple of the leaves images from the Fancy Foliage Dies

Here are the new sets and dies I used today:

The layers on card one make that my favorite, though the unique opening style of 2 is great too. Hard to choose.

Pati said...

Pretty cards! Lovely Rich Razzleberry, looks so crisp with all the white. Pretty vintage colors for your second card.

Julie S. said...

Grace, you're so creative, & you have such an eye for design & color coordination. I love your cards. I also love the sentiment set you suggested. You're absolutely right. There are times when no words can express how we feel, but we still feel led to let someone we care about know we care, even when we can't find the words. So kudos for the fabulous suggestion!
