First, is the card using a periwinkle blue background layered with the Quatrefoil Pattern Die, the Quatrefoil Label die, and the Hyacinth stamp set. The sentiment is stamped on the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.

Next is a gift box I created to hold tart candles.  The box uses the Quatrefoil Label die for the shape of the window and the Quatrefoil Pattern on the inside. The embossing folder is from Darice.

And Lastly, are Thank You cards.  The shape and top layer of my Thank You cards use the Quatrefoil Label die.  I then colored and cut out part of the image from the Hyacinth stamp set to adhere in the center. This set also includes several sentiments to fit in the banner.

Chris,

Beautiful work! The white quatrefoil over the periwinkle background really makes the colors pop. Very creative. I really like your gift box & the note cards. Love the sentiments that fit perfectly on the ribbon banner, & the hyacinth stamp lends itself perfectly to using just the hyacinth for a fussy-cut embellishment. Keep up the great work. You really inspire me.
