Gently Falling...

I received this beautiful stamp set from Stampin' Up!, it's called Gently Falling. It's a two step it!! The saying is from the stamp set called Petite Pairs...a new favorite. It has a saying for the front of the card and one for the inside as well, it covers all kinds of occasions!

The DSP I used is called Spice Cake, I love the colours in this paper. I used some new ribbon, More Mustard Scalloped Edge Polka Dot grosgrain Ribbon. I cut the piece of ribbon in half down the middle to save on ribbon, then I added a strip of Sticky Strip down the edge of the DSP on the back side and added the ribbon so that only the pretty little scallop showed.

Well, I guess I better put the stamps down and get moving! I sent my husband and the kiddies off to the in-laws for a swim. I told them I'd met them there after I got some stampin' done. But can you ever really be done stampin'? Never! I have been working so much that I have not had much time stampin'. I am actually working on getting my next stamp club cards ready and it's not till the 13th, and if you know me I never get things done early!! But I don't have a choice. I will mostly be working from now until then.

Liam starts school on Tuesday, Grade 3!! Wow! And Miss Summer starts on Thursday, SK! They are so ready!! I'm not. I really do love having them home, even though there are days when they drive me crazy...but only because they are bored, so we find something fun to do and they're better!

Ok, I said I was going, going swimming!! Better move my tushy.

Have a great Labor Day weekend!

  2. Love your card! It looks so good with the sentiment nestled in that new frame. Lucky for me I just ordered Petite Pairs, so I'll be case-ing one for myself :) PS I came from Tiffany Bauer's Crafty Picks.

  3. A real beauty. I love the sketch and the way you used the oval embossing folder. Blessings, Diane

  4. Love your Fall card! Hope you don't mind I cased it, still looks different, cause I used a different color of CS & scallop punch! I'll send you a private link to show you!

  5. Beautiful card! Love how you used the Designer Frame and the DSP. Fabulous layout!
