Simple Friendship…..

The following 4 cards were made to coordinate with the card portfolio I posted yesterday.

The Cardstock Colors are Stampin’ Up!’s Very Vanilla, Kraft and Chocolate Chip, and Bella Bleu Designer Paper

The Simple Friendship Stamp Set used here is also from Stampin’ Up!

Ink Colors used here are Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. The cut out flowers are colored in very lightly using Close to Cocoa classic ink with a Blender Pen. In order to get a soft look, pull just a little color from lid of the ink pad with the blender pen. Start in the center and blend out doing one petal at a time.

Have a happy day and Happy Stamping!

Portfolio Project for August Classes……


We’ve really enjoyed doing this beautiful card portfolio in my classes this month.  I have a couple of more classes before the end of the month, if you’re interested in coming and making your own, let me know by sending me an e-mail.

Out of town?  Not a problem, this can be a “class by mail”, send me an e-mail for the details!

The original design came from Andrea Walford. Check out her website at  Sunny Stampin’ Inc. She has lots of great ideas and fun tutorials.

This project uses Stampin’ Up!’s Simple Friendship Stamp Set.  And features 4 matching note cards with a place to put the envelopes and postage stamps.

The Stampin’ Up! colors used are Chocolate Chip, Kraft and Very Vanilla, with Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper.

I’ll post pictures of the 4 cards tomorrow.

Until then…..Have a Happy Day!  🙂
