Be You and Thanks for Everything cards


Be Original, Be You Card

Spring has finally arrived here in central Ohio and I couldn’t be happier. Patty here with a breath of fresh air card featuring some brand new Jillibean Soup/Chilled Cucumber soup papers and stamps. The idea for this card began with the “Be Original” stamp and I used it to set the theme of the card.

Starting with a kraft card base I began layering the Chilled Cucumber papers, “Peeled Cucumber”, “Yellow Tomatoes” and “Smashed Garlic”. The “Smashed Garlic” strip I cut out a pennant end and popped up with foam dots. TBe Original, Be You Card
Spring has finally arrived here in central Ohio and I couldn’t be happier. Patty here with a breath of fresh air card featuring some brand new Jillibean Soup/Chilled Cucumber soup papers and stamps. The idea for this card began with the “Be Original” stamp and I used it to set the theme of the card. 


Starting with a kraft card base I began layering the Chilled Cucumber papers, “Peeled Cucumber”, “Yellow Tomatoes” and “Smashed Garlic”. The “Smashed Garlic” strip I cut out a pennant end and popped up with foam dots. The I fussy cut the two Butterflies and layered them back on top of two butterflies. To complete the theme I punched out a butterfly and then layered the green chevron paper, “Sherry Vinegar” underneath. I then stamped the sentiment onto “Yellow Tomatoes” in brown ink and popped up with foam dots and added extra popped triangle for focal point. Then I stamped the arrows from the Chilled Cucumber large stamp set in brown ink. The “BE” letters are from the Chilled Cucumber Shapes Sticker sheet and the “you” sticker is a yellow wise words choice. To complete the card I added the pearl and blue gemstone bling to dress up the butterflies just a bit. 
The result is a fun card for an adult or a teen in your life. So take the message of the card to heart and “Be original, Be You.” Have a great day!

Thanks For Everything card by Nicole Nowosad
These stamps are really versatile. The heart shapes get me everytime, so I use them stamped onto both cardstock in blue ink and on Bella Blvd patterned paper in black. Although these stamps are from a different product line, they co-ordinate so well by just simply changing up the color of ink or what paper you stamp it on!

Supplies:
Bella Blvd cling stamps – Kiss Me (IC0225)
Other: Bella Blvd patterned paper, Bella Blvd stickers, Bazzill cardstock, hemp twine, My Mind’s Eye enamel dot
