Kind thinking...


I played again yesterday and today with some new sets that I just received from Stampin' Up!. While I was mounting them, I realized that all of the sets I bought are fairly similar -- I guess I really like this style! I am only sharing two today because I am still thinking about using one or two of the best cards I made for a swap I am in later this month. I have to make my mind up soon though, so you will be seeing the one I didn't choose on this blog in a few days. I just can't decide which to use!
The "for you" card above uses Stampin' Up!'s Kind thoughts and One of a Kind sets with SU's new Ginger Blossom Paper.
The Thank You card on the right uses SU's new One of a Kind set, with Berry Bliss paper. I did a little reverse under the circle area, did you notice?

Hmmm...Did you also notice that they are not quite so much of my usual blocky-style? Trying to think outside of the box a little : )

Tomorrow is Blogger's Challenge -- I am putting the finishing touches on my card tonight. Don't forget to sign up for the Giveaway from yesterday's post!

Wow! I love your card with the Berry Bliss paper. I just got my order on Tuesday and can't wait to start playing with all the new products.

Pat, these cards are lovely. I can't wait to get my hands on some ginger blossom papers! You are such an inspiration! Thank you for all you do.

Hum, tough decision. I love them both for the same reasons, love the colors and the layouts and the stamps chosen. Here's where they differ for me, I love the softness of the first card and the boldness of the second card. Now I personally tend to move more towards Bold. Both are excellent and I would love to have either or BOTH!

I'm going to CASE your thank you card. I have a new coluzzle round template and a flower punch that would work great with this layout.

I absolutely love this thank you card. The layout is wonderful and the colors are great too. I would love to use that layout for a challenge if you don't mind. I so love the way you alternated the circle. Brilliant!
