Timeless and Elegant

Stampin’ Up! CAS Anniversary made with Floral Phrases Thinlits and designed by Demo Pamela Sadler. See more cards at stampinpinkrose.com #stampinpinkroseWe all have special cards we need from time to time which sometimes require them to be elegant.  So before  I head to Chicago I have a challenge (actually two challenges).  The first challenge is a color requirement of Melon Mambo, Sahara Sand, and Black.  There is one stamp set with thinlit that I haven’t used; Floral Phrases.  So I dug it out and thought, many are using it for Wedding cards.  At this my point in life, I have far more Anniversaries that Wedding.  Therefore, I came up with this Anniversary card. You will find it quick and simple. Yet, this card is truly timeless and elegant. The other challenge is open design.  See the challenge links at the bottom.

Base: The beautiful and bright cheery Melon Mambo paper.

Focus:  The intricate lace cutout in black of the die. I gave a background of neutral Sahara Sand to help the black stand out.  The flower adds a pop of color which ties with the Melon Mambo paper.  Remember you need to tie your colors together.

Something I Adore

Stampin’ Up! CAS Birthday made withBest Birds stamp set and designed by Demo Pamela Sadler. See more cards at stampinpinkrose.com #stampinpinkrose


I don’t know if you are a bird lover.  It seems like I am always filling my feeders.  We get such pretty birds here in the Midwest. So the Players Challenge is watercolor and I chose to do a bird.  It is so easy with the Best Birds and framelits.  Th link to Paper Players Challenge is http://thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/  So when done here go over there and see some other great design ideas.

The Best Birds Stamp Set is wonderful because everything you need is in this stamp set and the ease of cutting out with the Birds and Blooms Thinlits makes this project simple. I chose Island Indigo and Pool Party for my bird. I would love to see what you come up with for your bird.  Feel free to post on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stampinpinkrose/
