Thinking of You Greeting Card – Spellbinders Tranquil Moments

Hello stampers!  Yes, it has been a long time (i.e., two years) since I posted any of my artwork.  Life’s events can get in our way sometimes and we have to adapt and decide on our priorities.  Posting on my site had fallen to the bottom of my priority list.  Now that time allows, I want to share with you a Thinking of You greeting card that I made recently for someone very special.

The card features the retired Stampin’ Up! Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper and Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments Die Set (S5-216), or Card Creator dies. The Spellbinders dies cut so perfectly and are so intricate.  They do the job for which they were intended…Card Creator!

Thinking of You Greeting Card & Spellbinders Tranquil_MomentsI used three retired Stampin’ Up! punches to build the center flower that is attached with a retired Stampin’ Up! brad.  Beside the flower are two Stampin’ Up! Basic Pearls.  The Tranquil Moments frame is made with  Stampin’ Up! Island Indigo Card Stock (122923).

Thinking of You Greeting Card Spellbinders Tranquil MomentsI think this card is beautiful and I created it without using any rubber stamps!  Below is somewhat of a side view of the Thinking of You Greeting Card that provides a peek into the inside of the card.  I can’t give you a better peek or you could see my private message! LOL

Do you like trying different forms of art?  I sure do.  Actually, I am excited to share with you today a new art form that a special friend shared with me this weekend.  The art requires  using tracing paper to trace images or items, cutting out the traced items, temporarily adhering the cut-outs onto Designer Series Paper, drawing around the cut-outs, and cutting out the drawn pieces and adhering them to paper to create an image.  It closely resembles using a pattern to cut out and sew fabric.  This piece that I’m sharing features the Stampin’ Up! Everything Eleanor Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Quatrefancy Speciality Designer Series Paper.  The piece of art is 6″ x 12″; therefore, my pictures are a little larger than usual.


Isn’t she beautiful?  I think so!!  All of the paper on the piece of art is Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers.  My lady has an up-do which is enhanced with a headband decorated with a flower and rhinestone.  Her body is made with a Stampin’ Up! script DSP.  The upper portion of her dress is made with one design  from the upcoming Quatrefancy  Speciality Designer Series Paper, which I love.  The bottom portion is made with various designs from the same DSP.  The stamp image from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set really causes the piece to pop!  I’m thinking that I will call my lady, Eleanor!  That seems quite fitting! (lol)

The following pictures provide a better view of Eleanor’s dress top and bottom:

The flowers at the top of the dress bottom are enhanced with a Stampin’ Up! Basic Rhinestone that I colored with a permanent marker.  The flowers themselves are from a collection that is not Stampin’ Up! flowers.

After adhering all of the pieces (i.e., her body, dress, flowers) to the yellow piece of paper, which is a design from the Quatrefancy DSP, I adhered it to a piece of cardboard.  This provides the art piece with stability and allows me to set it up in a picture stand.

I hope you enjoy Eleanor and will give this art form a try!


 God’s Blessings!
