Thinking of You…In Yellow & Blue

Welcome to the Studio!

If you’re visiting from the Card A Day Blog, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you come back again soon. If you haven’t been to the Card A Day Blog, please stop by over there. There are a bunch of talented designers who can’t wait to share their ideas and techniques
with you.

The theme for the week is: Thinking of You. It’s nice to let someone know that they’ve been on your mind. It can make a person feel special, loved, or in times of strife, make them feel like they are not alone. Here’s a clean and simple card based on Mojo Monday Sketch #233.

And here's my card...

This card is 6.5x5. The base is out of one of those value packs of card blanks from the chain craft stores. The pattern paper is MME Lush collection in navy. The yellow polka dot is from Echo
Park, Dots & Stripes collection. The two blue panels are cut at 3x4.75. The center piece is cut at
5x3.5. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the strip on the side. I then stamped my sentiment tag in CTMH Outdoor Denim. The stamp is Stampin Up, Four Frames. I then used SU Teeny Tiny Wishes and Lucky Limeade to stamp “Thinking of You.” The flower is several layers. The navy blue flowers are misc. silk flowers and the green flower is from Prima. The
yellow rhinestone brad in the center is from Making Memories.

I had so much fun with this sketch that I decided to make another card. I love the Wisteria Wonder color from Stampin Up and thought I’d make a lavender birthday card. I love the wisteria and the yellow together. The flower I made used Spellbinders dies and Heartfelt Creations Innoscents stamp.


  1. Love the colors of the card the extra added green really enhances the card. I really like what you did with the sketch with both cards. TFS

  2. Love it! Great use of color and pattern. I agree with Tina, the green makes the flower pop out of the card (for me). TFS!
