Hey friends! So I made this card with the Zen Florals stamp set and created a little wreath out of a few of the stamps in black. I fussy cut the wreath out and centered it on top of my Horizontal Stripes Die Cut. I added a few stamps along the top left and bottom right edges and made the sentiment flag using the Not Too Shabby stamp set. A mini clothespin and some gold string added a few finishing touches!

Stephanie Gold - Susie Felicity Jane Dream Big Card - Goldensimplicity.com

Oh my goodness you guys. This floral print in the Felicity Jane Susie kits is unreal. It’s like my love for girly flowers and colors just exploded onto paper!! Isn’t it amazing?! I’m paper fangirling over here hang on….. Ok. I’m cool. 😀 When I put together this Felicity Jane Dream Big card, I loved the contrast of the bold black and white stripes with the floral so I knew this was definitely a combination I wanted to put together. I added some light seam binding wrapped around the back for a fun soft feel as well.

I also tried to give it many popped up layers for dimension and it turned out just right. Can’t wait to show you the other things I made with this kit!! Happy Thursday ya’ll! 🙂

birthday wishes card set - goldensimplicity.com

Hello dears! Happy early Thanksgiving! I have been going through birthday cards like crazy lately so I decided to make myself a birthday wishes card set so I could quickly grab one every time I needed a last minute birthday card. I used a stamp from a $5 mini Papertrey Ink stamp set, a bunch of floral ephemera from Maggie Holmes Open Book Collection, and pattern paper from her collection as well.

I switched up one of the cards with a Delicate Details die cut from PTI, a border die from Sizzix, & the Maggie Holmes Confetti leaf dies.

Isn’t all the glitter fun?! I should probably make a more masculine birthday card wishes set too… 😉 Much love friends!

Hello, hello! Can you believe we are already at the end of August?? I always feel like August is one of the fastest months to fly by because of the newly starting school year (here in Arizona our school year starts the first week of August). So today I have a fun summery card to finish out the month. I am using regular ephemera, floral ephemera, and pattern paper from Maggie Holmes Open Book collection as well as a hello stamp from Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint stamp set. The twine wrapped around the top is from a Studio Calico add-on kit.

Doesn’t the top kind of remind you of a fun summer hippie headband??

Hoping you all have a great week and a fresh start in September! Cross your fingers for cooler weather, friends. Who’s ready for fall?!

Happy Monday! I tried a different color combination than I am used to for this card… blues and blacks and greys… eek! What do you think? The lacey die cut in the background is from the Delicate Details die set from Papertrey Ink which I adore. The fun striped pattern paper is from a Studio Calico card kit. I just cut out a Project Life sized card and rounded the edges. I also used the dies from the SC kit to make the arrows and feathers. The sentiment badge is so bold and shiny it sort of steals the show and I love it! This was a fun one to put together (but aren’t they all??)!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week and happy crafting!
