Graceful Greetings

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

We're back home after a quick trip to PA to spend time with family.  Because we don't see each other very often, we usually pick up or hand make little gifts for each other.  I wanted to send a 'thank you' to may aunt and sister-in-law for the gifts they gave me.
I used a new {to me} stamp set from PTI.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from Graceful Greetings in clusters to create a pattern for this card.  I used two shades of purple from WP9 called Bloomsberry and Cockleshell.  I accented them with a small flower stamped in Lake House.  They look beautiful together.  Thanks to the ColourQ for the inspiration! 
 I used the WP9 Landscape Border die to create a soft curve for each card.
I kept this card a bit more simple, adding the clusters just around the sentiment.
I think I'll give the simple one to my sister-in-law and the floral pattern card to my aunt.
I hope you had a great weekend, too.  I'm glad to be home with Piper though.  I missed her!  We were lucky and my father-in-law was kind enough to come stay at our house with Piper while we were away for a few days.  What do you do with your pets while on vacation?

  1. Absolutely beautiful Kara!

  2. These are so gorgeous. I love the card designs.

  3. Beautiful cards. We send Sherlock to a kennel out in the country that is like heaven for dogs. Usually he hurts our feelings by being so excited to go there that he forgets to say goodbye to us, he is in such a rush to just get there and run around. He comes home exhausted and we can count on 2 full days of naps for him.

  4. Both are just beautiful Kara! Your aunt and SIL will treasure them. We always took our little Max with us. He was a great traveler/adventurer!!

  5. What's not to love in this card? The stamping, composition and dimensions--they are all covered! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia’s View “100% Stamped” Challenge!, Kara!

  6. Please tell me where I can purchase the WP9 dies from?

    1. They can be purchased here:

  7. Kara, both cards are beautifully done! Absolutely love the designs of these two cards!

  8. Gorgeous stamping, Kara, and I love how you used the colors!

  9. Simply gorgeous cards your fabulous style and how you did each card just a little different from the next. Love them all. Thanks for joining us at ColourQ!

  10. Beautiful cards, Kara! Love your designs! Our pups are the main reason I hate to be gone. They go to a kennel (they call it a resort--:)!) if it's only for a day or two but the people are wonderful and the dogs seem to do pretty well, except for not wanting to eat as much. Luckily we also have a neighbor that does pet sitting and we try to book her. She will come over four times a day and spend quite a bit of time with them,

  11. What lovely cards, Kara, love both designs! thanks for playing along with us at the colourQ.
