for you...

 Hello!  I have two cards to share today and both cards use the phrase 'for you' thus my blog title.  First up is a card for the current Fab Friday challenge.   Back in December I received the a limited edition Gina K Designs tiny wreath builder set when I made a purchase from Simon Says Stamp.  I finally pulled it out and used it to create my card.  It is super easy to use the wreath builder template.  I was a little bummed when I discovered that one of the circular sentiments in the set has a huge flaw in it so I won't be able to use it.  I used four of the colors to create my wreath and the fifth color for the circular sentiment.  The squares were die cut with Spellbinders square dies and the circle with a Spellbinders circle die.  I layered everything up on a rectangle die cut from white cardstock and then adhered to a white cardstock base.  I finished the card with some black and white baker's twine.

The second card is for this month's Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge, Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the Card Concept challenge (clean and simple).  I used an older Reverse Confetti stamp and die set called Beautiful Banners along with the two heart dies from the Love Notes Confetti Cuts die set.  I cut the hearts from the following RC colors:  Piggy Bank, Rose and Salsa.  The were the colors that I pulled from the inspiration photo. I arranged the hearts on white cardstock per the sketch.  The banner and sentiment from the Beautiful Banner set were stamped using VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne ink.   The banner was die cut, I adhered all the pieces to a white cardstock panel and adhered the panel to a card base made from Rose cardstock.  I finished with some Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins.  Realized that this would work for the current Time Out challenge.  







Have a wonderful day!

Love both of these, Rosemary! The tiny wreath is neat & you've reminded me to get it out again! I really love the RC card--adorable!

Such pretty cards - and the one in our colors is gorgeous, lol. Love all the layers, and the wreath is a perfect accent behind the sentiment! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

Both of these cards are really great. Love the mini wreath on your first card, and your perfectly placed trios of hearts on your second card. And, I have had very good luck emailing stamp companies when I have received a defective stamp--they have replaced it in almost every instance. I'd encourage you to try! Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

What a pretty wreath, Rosemary ... such a pity about the flaw in one of the sentiments ... the one you used here is such a lovely one. Those red and pink heart clusters are a delight ... so perfect with that simple, crisp banner sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
