I Cherish You


It's been a fabulous Saturday! One of my best friends hosted a baby shower today for her daughter in law who is having a baby boy in February. Celebrating a new life with amazing friends couldn't get any better. I am so thankful for each of these ladies!! 

Once I got back home, I started laundry and cleaned up a bit. Football is always on in my house on Saturdays which I am completely fine with and even encourage! I plopped down at my craft table and started working on something just for fun! 

I have new stamps and patterned paper to play with so I decided to pair them together and create a card. One of my favorite crafters and bloggers is Carissa Wiley from Sprinkled With Glitter. She is so talented and her projects are mucho inspirational!! I love every thing she makes so when she made a card a few weeks ago I knew I had to try to put my spin on it! You can find the blog post and video HERE. I promise her videos are worth every single minute!! 

Anyways, here is the card I created using stamps from Honey Bee Stamps, patterned paper/embellishments from Photo Play Paper and sequins/dies from Pretty Pink Posh. 

The paper in the Autumn Day collection is absolutely stunning!! Every single design makes me this crafty girl giddy! It screams everything that is Autumn and I see a lot of projects in my future using this product line. I cut a piece of Neenah Natural White card stock to create a top folding card and then used another piece to die cut using the largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Stackables from Lawn Fawn

Once I decided what patterns I wanted to use I cut three of them in to different sized flags. I then used my Stitched Banner Duo 2 die from Pretty Pink Posh to die cut a piece of vellum paper. The beautiful sentiment is from the Cherish set from Honey Bee Stamps. I stamped it using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using beautiful new embossing powder called Gilded from Brutus Monroe. It is the most beautiful gold color once it's all melted. It will be my go-to when needing gold. 

I used a sticker from the Autumn Day sticker sheet to tie in with the stamped sentiment and I think it fit perfectly! Once I was satisfied with where everything would go I glued it all down using my tape runner. I finished it off with a sprinkling of Metallic Gold and Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  

That's all for now. Back to the never ending chore of laundry and cleaning up from dinner. Hope you enjoyed this card and were inspired. Products used are listed and linked below.
