Blessings, Dreams & Possibilities…

I just love this quote…

Every day is a blessing.

Every hour is a dream.

Every minute is a possibility.

So beautiful and just perfect to remind me of so many things I am grateful for. It also goes so well with my word of the year {embrace}. Embracing the time I have, my blessings, my dreams and possibilities…

Every Day is a Blessing

This design once again features the Time to Stamp stamp set from the newly released “The Rummage Bin” line by Lesley Langdon for Cornish Heritage Farms. I just lvoe the name of the line…every stamp is a little rubber treasure and the more I go through the sets…the more ideas and stamps and uses I find!

This design uses some simple stamping for a clean yet vintage look. And another variation of that teal and green combo… I just can’t stop! Tomorrow’s design is a totally different color combo from what I’ve been doing lately but you’ll have to wait until then! 😉 To make this design super quick…I used a sketch from Di Hickman’s sketch challenge #4. I turned it 90° ot the right and stamped on some patterned paper for a quick design. This Tres Jolie line from My Mind’s Eye makes it super easy to match up. The reverse side is always a beautiful rich, slightly textured surface that is perfect for stamping on…and of course…perfectly coordinated. The clock and sentiment are stamped in Burnt Umber Palette Ink and the decorative circle peeking out fo the top was stamped in Aqua Adirondack ink by Ranger. To create the coffee mug stain…you can find this stamp in another set from the same line… Ledger Me. I stamped it in Antique Linen distress ink. Some quick embellishments finish it off… chocolate brown May Arts velvet ribbon, some vintage trim by Making Memories and a Prima flower set with a Creative Impression’s brad finish it off.

  1. That is a very beautiful quote!! And the card is gorgeous!

  2. Love the quote, and a perfect sentiment and word!! Gorgeous timeless,classic card!

  3. What a beautiful card! I wish I could have just a teeny-weeny drop of your embellishment talent! That ribbon/trim/flower combination is a lovely finish to this card. I’m always at a loss for embellishments and there they sit in their jars. I’ll keep trying and keep looking at your blog for inspiration 🙂

  4. One more thing – I took a quick look at the new rummage bin stamps and they are gorgeous! I saw a few I would like then I got to the Canadian set and I was thrilled to see a Canadian set. It’s a bit too bad that an American company had to do it first (to the best of my knowledge), but there you go. Well done CHF!

  5. Darling Card J! I love the mix of paper and colors!! 🙂

  6. Beautiful card! (I love the new stamps and can’t wait until I can purchase them.) Your card is perfect!

  7. Hmmmm….may have to add the “Time to Stamp” set to my list. This is really pretty, J! I love the sentiment and the clock. (And the coffee stain…lol.)
