BEST THOUGHTS STAMPIN' UP! STYLE!

Best Thoughts Clear-Mount Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

I hope you have enjoyed your week of inspiration for the Best Thoughts stamp set.  I know I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing these wonderful creations.  

For our last card, I thought it would be fitting to share the card made by Stampin' Up!  A simple yet elegant feel combining some Designer Series Paper wit ha little  Rhinestone bling.  Notice they stamped the flower image in color so you don't need to color it.  This is an excellent reminder that you can love this stamp set without loving to color!

Really love this awesome creation from Donna Ferguson.  The tiny velvet ribbon gives such a touch of elegance that is hard to resist the urge to reach out and touch it.  The butterfly has obviously taken flight and is enchanted by the delicate flower.  This card has a great "feel" to it.

Crazy 4 Challenges....Monochromatic Thanks
Vicki Burdick gets credit for this beautiful vision in purple.  I think the way she watercolored around the outside of the flower adds a lot of dimension.

BEST THOUGHTS IN COLOR STYLE!

Introducing Watermelon Wonder
This great card was made by Sabrina Radeck.  This is a perfect color for the sunny summer days.  It is bright and inviting, and the sponged color on the edges adds lots of texture.

BUTTERFLY BLISS WITH BEST THOUGHTS!

This card is Annette Elliott's beautiful creation.  Everything about this card is warm and inviting!
I particularly like the way she has framed the flower to make it the focal point of her card and then added the butterfly in flight to give it dimension.

HEADED TO THE OUTER BANKS!

It's almost time for the big wedding.  BUT, before that, I need a little rest and relaxation; right?  I am leaving this morning and heading to the Outer  Banks for beach time before the big day.  I am lucky enough to be travelling with my wonderful husband, my son and his girlfriend, AND my mom and both of my sisters.  My brother and his significant other will be meeting us there.  I am super blessed to  be able to share this time with my family and so excited for my oldest son as he begins a new chapter in his life with his new bride.  I will post a few wedding photos next weekend so you can see the lovely new Mr. and Mrs. Kolly.

In the meantime, I won't be leaving you to fend for yourself.  As I mentioned earlier this week, I have lots of Best Thoughts creative inspiration to share.  Even though none of the lovely cards I will be sharing were made by me, they are all extremely beautiful and will make you want to get that ink and card stock out, so be sure to stop by and see what I'm sharing.

MORE BEST THOUGHTS!



Unfortunately, whomever posted this card did not put a watermark on it or leave their name.  I am very sad I cannot give them credit.  If this is your card, or you know who made it, please contact me, so I can give you the credit you deserve for this beautiful creation!

Flowers and butterflies are a sure hit with me, and I am truly unable to pick a favorite.  I treasure them both equally!  I think the way the green color is added to the bottom of this card adds a lot of texture and dimension, and I am going to have to try this technique in the future.

BEST THOUGHTS!

Best Thoughts
This image was definitely beautiful enough to be framed, and it will make a wonderful gift or addition to your decor.   Michelle Jutrisa made this with the Best Thoughts stamp set, an Antique Brad and some Lace Trim.  I love this idea!

These are all the great stamps included in Best Thoughts.

WRIST UPDATE!

As most of you know, in early June of this year, I took a fall and broke my wrist.  After spending six weeks in a cast, I am now in a heavy-duty brace, which I will get to wear for four more weeks.  I can take the brace off for showers and two other times during the day for ten minutes each time to do some exercises.  Once the four weeks is over, I will, fingers crossed, be able to shed the brace entirely.  At that point I will start some physical rehab to strengthen my wrist....  needless to say this has been quite the ordeal that has morphed into quite the process.

While in the cast things were going very slowly at work and around the house and even doing personal chores was a challenge.  I was stamping for my classes and my Diva nights, but that was it.  I was hoping things would change when the cast came off, but the brace is every bit as challenging, so I won't be playing with my new catalog goodies any time soon.

However, I love to post to my blog and keep your creative juices going with lots of inspiration.  During the past month I have shared tons of Build A Birthday inspiration.  Now I am going to move on and share lots of ideas for the Best Thoughts stamp set.

This is another great stamp set, and I have lots of great cards to share, so stop back by often!
