I went with a fun fold card that I have seen made with flowers and
changed it up to a Fourth of July theme for my dads birthday.

Congratulations


My niece got a fabulous promotion at work so I made this card for her,
pink is her favorite color and she wears a lot of black, so color choices
were easy. If you are debating the Cut-Align rulers from
My Sweet Petunia I am thrilled with mine, look how nice
and even the edges are around the Congrats and the black
layer around it, easy to use.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!

The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

 
Anything goes week at The House That Stamps Built this week!



I made a set of 8, 2 of each of the CAS thank you cards as requested by a special person in my life.  I think this Heart Ribbon designed by Wendy
is the most beautiful cancer ribbon I have seen. On the inside he chose the
"Inspiration" verse "You are such an inspiration" for the left side and
will write his notes on the right side.

The House That Stamps Built-Inspiration Photo




Image may contain: stripes

 
 Inspiration photo week at The House That Stamps Built, and let me tell
you, this one had me stumped.  I finally went through my  patterned papers
 for inspiration looking for a floral to go with the flowers at the top and to match
 the colors. After gluing it to my paper I embossed it with a butterfly
Paper Studio embossing folder (thank you Mrs. A) for interest,
 and added Repeat Impressions: Thinking of You layered
with the reverse side of the paper.
 

Isn't the reverse of the embossing on the inside pretty too!

Happy Fathers Day




I had made several alcohol ink backgrounds several weeks ago and
thought these two would make good eclipse cards for my husband
and my dad for Fathers Day.  I did the Dad on my Scan N Cut.
Bow is by Taylored Expressions.
 
Happy Fathers Day to all the men out there and the spouses/
significant others of those visiting my blog.
