Card Swap for Convention

I created these cards after seeing Christine Pyrch's design ( and changed mine to monochromatic for a convention swap I am in.
I used 4 of the five new in-colors for 2014-2016, Tangelo Orange, Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey.  The fifth in-color not shown is Mossy Meadow.

 These first two cards are an example of Christine's card except I changed the label and saying.

 I love trying new folds.

So what do you think of the monochromatic?  I will be adding rhinestones to the 3 flowers that are punched out on the left of the card.  I think my favorite is the Blackberry that color.  Also, which label looks the best?  Small or Large "Thank You"?
Thanks for looking and your input.

New Header

You'll notice my new header is my first attempt in creating one, with the help of the MDS queen, Sherry Nye.  Thanks Sherry for your time and patience.  Can't wait to play with MDS some more.

Look for the Inspire - Create - Share Blog Hop coming July 3rd.

Happy Stamping!

It's a Man Thing Blog Hop

I am so glad Stampin' Up! brought back The Open Seas stamp set. It's one of my favorite stamps sets to use with "guy" cards.

The measurements for the Daffodil Delight is 3 1/2 x 2 1/2, and the Night of Navy (under the boat) is 3 x 2 1/4.

The first layer is Chocolate Chip which I ran through with the Argyle TIEF (textured impressions embossing folder).  And card base is Very Vanilla same as the stamped pieces.

The accessories used are:  Argyle TIEF, Decorative Label Punch, and brads.
