More with all my heart

Hi there! Hope you're enjoying your Saturday so far. I've got more cards using the With All My Heart stamp set to share with you today. I am really digging this set a lot - along with the color palette! So 4 of the cards (the 2 from yesterday and 2 today) have 2 things in common - the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch as well as a 3"x4" piece of my home made "DSP" using the large and small flower center images in the stamp set. The fun thing is that you can change up the layout so easily with the same supplies. Here's a look at the 2 additional cards I made: In today's cards, I used the larger flower stamp for my flower center and I think it gives the punch a whole different look.
For this flower, I added a large pumpkin pie corduroy button in the middle. I thought the pop of orange reminded me of a hibiscus flower. The birthday sentiment I used is from the Well Scripted stamp set, which is also in the Occasions Mini.

I've got one more share using this stamp set and flower punch, but in a much more muted color scheme - it's a Sympathy card I made for a funeral I will be attending today. I'm not one that keeps Sympathy cards on hand, but sadly, death is a part of the cycle of life. I will be attending an uncle's funeral. He had a long battle with lung cancer which had come back, and suffice it to say that family and friends are thankful he is now at peace. It will be a day of remembering his warm and kind spirit and all the great memories we all shared over the years.

Now, just because I will be attending a funeral today doesn't mean that you all need to be sad and sorrowful, so I wish you all a wonderful day.

Thanks so much for coming by. :)
