Detailed Floral Thinlets
Detailed Floral Thinlets

This card was made in response to my Pastor’s father passing away this week.  He was an older gentleman who loved the Lord, and he will be missed by his family and friends.

When I got my first peek at the 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! catalog my heart went pitter-patter when I saw the Detailed Floral Thinlets.  I purchased the coordinating stamp set, Floral Phrases, and I’ll use that on another project soon.  These are part of the Floral Boutique collection a set of beautiful papers, stamps and of course, these thinlets on page 77 of the catalog.

The detail on these thinlets is amazing and I used the Precision Cutting plate to make it cut easier and to get the small pieces out. Works like a charm!  I recommend purchasing it for all of your detailed thinlets, not just the Stampin’ Up! ones but other brands too.

Check it all of this out at my online store at by clicking the “shop now” button now at the top.

Now go and stamp something sweet!

Fear Not!

Botanical Blooms and Rose Wonder
Botanical Blooms and Rose Wonder

Hi again!  Today I have for you a card that was inspired by several different ones and I can’t tell you exactly which ones.  LOL  I used a combination of Botanical Blooms stamp set and framelet set and Rose Wonder stamp set.  Here in Isaiah 41:10 God is telling us that he will be with us and help us in our times of trouble, but He starts out “Fear Not” as if He were an angel.  Ever noticed that the first line out of all the angels in the Bible is usually “Fear Not”?  But when God is with us, what do we have to fear?  This quote from Isaiah is one of my absolute favorite stamps in the Occasions Catalog.

I used a sheet from Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper for the background and a small layer of Island Indigo. The Botanical Builders Framelets are great to use by themselves or with the stamp set.  I used them both ways on this card.  Every die cut received just a touch, if not more, of ink to give each of the flowers and leaves depth.  Here’s another shot of the card.
