Yes, this sweet card really says I’m Praying for You. I love cards like this because I do pray for people and I like to send them cards to let them know that I care about what they’re going through. This is a perfect sentiment for that.
The Thoughts & Prayers stamp set is one of my favorites because it has several great sentiments like this one. I have used this stamp set so many times ~ it’s really a classic! Feel free to click on the picture below to get more details.
Pretty Pointer: To highlight or focus on a sentiment, cut it out in a nice shape and lift it up on Stampin’ Dimensionals to bring attention to it! For this sentiment I cut it with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits and went even further by cutting a larger circle in a companion color. This really emphasized the sentiment.
For today’s card I’ve used the very pretty Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. You know our designer papers coordinate perfectly with our card stock. That’s one of the stand out things about Stampin’ Up! We are specialists in color coordination 🙂
You know, I’m wondering if you might want me to pray for YOU? If so, just email me at [email protected] and I would love to pray for you. I so appreciate all of my blog readers – YOU – and would be happy to be able to do something for you 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today!
So I had a ladies brunch to go to yesterday and I decided to take each person one of these adorable little treat boxes! I filled them with candy hearts and set one box on each place. They loved them!
For the boxes I used the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. The boxes were cut with the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies. I’ve shown you these boxes before and really like them ~ they are for way more than Valentine’s Day!! You can use them to hold lots of small gifts or treats. I’m thinking a tea bag would fit really well too!
Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies
Item No. 145653
This beautiful color I’ve used for the hearts is Berry Burst, one of my current favorite Stampin’ Up! colors. And the ribbon, oh my gosh, I love it, Metallic Edged no less 🙂 These boxes are seriously a snap to make, and I like being able to make a gift quickly, like a hostess gift. You will love them.
Thank you for stopping by today! I love your comments, please leave me a note and let me know what you think of today’s post 🙂
Doesn’t this look like one of the prettiest wedding cakes you’ve ever seen? Can you believe this is handmade? Well, YOU can create this card too!
It’s seriously not that hard. Let’s look at it closely. First, the blue (Marina Mist) layer was embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. Easy, right? Then a Whisper White circle was cut with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. This creates a point of focus behind the cake. Again, easy!
Now for the Silver Foil Cake Plate~cut the base and the lace-detailed tray with the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies (part of the Cake Soiree Bundle). Then stamp the cake with one of the gorgeous stamps from the Cake Soiree Stamp Set and cut it out with another one of the framelits. Almost done!
Then cut some pretty leaves and a bow to decorate the cake, all from the Sweet Cake Framelits. This is a set of 16 dies! Wow! You can add the sentiment if you like, or leave it off. And a bit of ribbon and baker’s twine finish off the card. See, not that hard. This is a stepped-up version of this card, you can easily simplify by leaving off some of the leaves and the ribbon. It will still be a beautiful card.
