Comfort Café Thank You

Hi there,

For today's post I created a card that will be entered in two card challenges. For the design layout I went to Sketch Frenzy Friday for their SFF110212 challenge and then I went to The Paper Players for theme challenge #120: "Give Thanks". I was inspired to use my Comfort Café DSP that I had yet to use. I also used some other supplies that had been untouched on my shelf for too long - the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, the Quint-Essential Flower stamp, the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, and the Large Oval Punch. It was also the first time I opened up the 2012-2014 In Colour Card Stock paper package.

Here's my card:

The details for the card are:

CS: Cajun Craze, Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla
DSP: Comfort Café
Stamp Set: Day of Gratitude, Quint-Essential Flower
Ink: Cajun Craze, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede
Embellishments: Pool Party 3/8" Designer Printed Brad

1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Modern Label Punch, Large Oval Punch, Word Window Punch

Happy stamping!

Wedded Bliss


Today is an exciting day. It's the wedding of my cousin to his beautiful bride. The family has been looking forward to this day for a few years.

For their wedding card I wanted to incorporate the wedding colours and the flourish design on the wedding invitation. The wedding colours are purple, pink, orange, and brown. The flourish design reminded me of the flourish in the Bliss stamp set. Choosing the stamp set was easy, but coming up with the layout that used all the four colours was trickier. In the end I'm happy with what I came up with.

Here's the card:
