Tuesday Trigger for January 18, 2011

Hello! More wintry weather predicted to be on the way... : (

I took this one in my neighbors yard to show the inches on her hanging flowers and the playhouse...


Live and Learn and pass it on for today:

I've learned that TRUST is the single most important factor
in both personal and professional relationships. Age 20

What do you think about that? I wholeheartedly agree!


It's a Tuesday Trigger Challenge! I haven't done one of these in so long. I always want to, I just can't seem to make the time....I always copy the trigger photo, and that is as far as I get!
I decided to make a small set of cards. They could be used for Birthday, Wedding/Anniversary and Valentines Day...if you like....
BTW-These are all the same color...bad editing job on two shots... : /

Here's the Trigger...

Here's my take...
As you can see, I used a bunch of embossing folders...about 10 altogether!
After the fact I don't know what I didn't go lighter, or more varied. But my son liked them. He said they were elegant. So...I'm good... : )

...I Love You...

...Best Wishes...

...Happy birthday...

General Supplies: Paper bouquet linen paper by DMD, Metallic paper stack by DCWV, Rhinestones/ Walmart Best Occasions, Sizzix, Cuttlebug and Stampin Up embossing folders, Mini brad/JoAnn's Crafts

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon...


  1. They sure are elegant! My favorite one is the rose folder.

  2. Hi Rae, what spectacular cards!!! They are heaven sent...I thought I would pop in and say hi, as it's been a while..My work takes up most of my life and I have even been reduced to doing crafty stuff at work in my lunch hour so I can finish them at home...
    Anyway I hope you are well and keep creating because your lovely cards keep getting better and better every time I see them :)

  3. Great take on the challenge. I love your tone on tone cards and all the textures. Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Have a good weekend!

  4. These are so lovely...especially the third one. GORGEOUS! Thanks for stopping by my blog today, it's nice to meet you!

  5. Wow! Rachel, these cards are very "plush"! They are gorgeous! They really took me back when I finally scrolled down to see what you had been doing! You always astound me with your work! I love the gold on gold and the silver on silver, never would have thought of it. I love the gold on gold the most though. I love the creative way you did the flowers and I love the card with the music and hearts with flowers on it. I think flowers are God's music in nature so they go hand in hand! Great, great work once again! Always look forward to your posts!
    Love and Hugs,

  6. You did an awesome job with the trigger challenge, Rae...your set of cards is gorgeous!!! The colors and texture you used match the trigger perfectly....looks like a winner to me!!!
