Sorry for Everything Painted Harvest

First, a note.  If you popped over here for the Stamp Off 
Challenge, we have shifted to posting this challenge
every other week.  This happens to be an "off" week.
Please check back September 8th (next Friday) for
our Stamp Off Challenge.
This card features two of my favorite stamp sets.
Sorry for Everything, on page 98 of the annual catalog
is a required set, because it works for wellness issues,
broken friendships, and the passing of pets or people.
It is a great investment because it works for so many
difficult situations.

My other favorite product is Painted Harvest on page 49
of the Holiday Catalog.  LOVELY set, which can 
be used for so many situations.

Ribbon of Courage with Bundle of Love

On Monday, I featured the Ribbon of Courage set on page 96.
This is another card made with this set and coordinating
Support Ribbon Framelits on page 214.  I made several cards while stamping with friends Mary (StamperCamper) and Jo.  The flower
framelits are soooo cute and make a case for getting 
these Framelits!   I felt that they worked very well with 
the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper
on page 189.   I really like this paper because it has a lot
of gold foil in the design.  You can sponge on color,
if you want to coordinate with a specific color scheme 
that you are working with.

If you are paying attention to the calendar, the 2017
Holiday catalog goes active on Friday!!  Please check
in for lots of samples of these new products!

Below is a video, featuring this specialty paper.

Ribbon of Courage on Layered Leaves

I recently had a former coworker die of breast cancer.
It's difficult to create cards for friends or family who
are dealing with cancer.  I really appreciate the 
Ribbon of Courage set on page 96, with the coordinating
Support Ribbon Framelits on page 214.   The
sentiments in this set are beautiful and work well on a card.
The images are excellent, when embossed with White
Stampin' Emboss Powder (p 201).

I think that many backgrounds work well with
Ribbon of Courage, but I really liked the Layered Leaves
3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
on page 211.   I enjoyed making this card while having
a stamping play date with my friends Mary (Stampercamper)
and Jo.
