Best Wishes & More Versatile for Spring and Fall Too!

A really quick post today, as it is a very busy day with my side step card camp!  As promised… two more cards using the versatile Best Wishes and More stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Not sure what I was thinking when I decided to pierce the edge of the leaf panel and manually cross stitch all the way down the side of this card with linen thread!!  It is a beautiful effect, but I think next time I may limit it to 3-5 pairs of x’s!

 

I love the new Wide Oval punch… and it layers so nicely with both the Designer Label Punch and 1 1/4” Circle Punch!  The bold stamped leaf image is so pretty on this card too.. the ones on the right side of the card were stamped on scraps of Whisper White card stock and glued directly to the Old Olive card stock.  I used my mat pack to perfectly place the gold eyelets in the greeting assemblage.. and then added stampin’ dimensionals to the back before attaching it to the card.

 

This is a really fun fall color combination… constrasting the crisp Whisper White with So Saffron, Barely Banana, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive card stock.    The So Saffron is kind of an unexpected surprise too!

So… back to clean and crisp… adding a pop of rose red color with ribbon and ink for a fresh and fun spring card! 

 

I couldn’t resist using that beautiful leaf one more time on this card… and used dimensional dots beneath the stamped/punched floral image and leaves too!

 

 

There is one more image in this stamp set, and a couple more greetings too…  The bold image heart is great for valentines day, wedding cards, and sending a hug to a close friend too…

 

Not sure if I’ll have time to keep stamping with this set.. I have to begin prepping for the Royal Blog Tour at the end of July, need to make some swaps for convention, swaps for the upcoming downline meeting… and of course design and prep for upcoming classes.  OH… and I’ll be going to stamp fest at the end of this month too… YIKES… and June is half over already!!  AND… hmm I’m sure there’s more, isn’t there always more?
