Happy Mail for Grayson II

Hello crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful week. Mine started busy, but I'm glad I finally have time to post the cards I made for Aydan (Grayson's older brother and their parents), so here they are.
On this card I didn't stamp at all. The paper is Bella Blvd "Pack your bag" collection. The ships and plane are wood veneers by Studio Calico that came in the SSS September 2013 card kit, and the waves are die cut borders that had on my stash for a long time.
On the second card I heat embossed with clear embossing powder the words 'Believe' and 'Love' both by an old set by Stampin Up!,  to color the background I used distress ink and the focus image is by SSS 'Giving thanks' that came in the Oct 2013 card kit. It looks better IRL, anyway just wanted to share.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a blessed week.
I'm linking the card for Aydan to Monday Challenges at SSS " Nautical".


  1. Both cards are perfect for the card drive! Love the distressing that you did for the 2nd card! That clear embossing result is wonderful! I know they will be appreciated, Loly!

  2. They are both such lovely cards. Way to use the stash! I am sure that these cards will be an encouragement and appreciated.

  3. They're going to LOVE them Loly!

  4. I'm such a sucker for wood veneers ... they're pretty darn awesome! Lovely cards, Loly!

  5. What wonderful cards, so sweet of you to create for the whole family!

  6. You're so thoughtful to create cards for this family, and you put a lot of love into them both! I love the clouds on the first one - it just makes me feel happy :)

  7. These are so cute! Love how the plane is pulling the banner on a string in the first card. Great designs and details. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  8. These are adorable!

    I just saw your question on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog... thanks for the comment! I used Papertrey Ink's new Tag Sale #8 die to cut my tags. :)

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks so much for answering Erin! I try to order it but it's out of stock. Enjoy your weekend!
