Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Lovely Wishese card from


For my creations, I used Lovely Wishes.

As I started to create, I thought about the springtime trips to the beach

that I used to make with my daughter.

There was often Wisteria blooming in the trees.

In fact, it was one of the earliest plants she could identify.

My card starts with a Thick Whisper White base.

Then, I added a Wisteria Wonder layer with a micro border.

On my Whisper White focal layer, I stamped the vine/leaf images

in Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder.

Next, I added a Wisteria Wonder Stitched Oval.

Over that, I’ve added: a Silver Metallic Foil Doily, Pretty Label Punch, Silver Metallic Thread and

the Lovely Wishes sentiment on a Stitched Circle.

To finish, I used a trio of Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Project 2



For my second project, I created a coordinating favor.

I love to have a card and a “little something” to give.

To change things up, I used Vellum to make my box.

To create the topper, I used some of the same elements I used on the card.

From the top down, I used: a Lovely Wishes sentiment on a Stitched Circle,

Silver Metallic Thread, a Pretty Label Punch

and a Silver Metallic Foil Doily.

Of course there had to be some bling so, I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

      Thank you Kim! Now that I’ve done them soft, I may have to try them bold and see if that works.
