Simply Elegant: Beautiful in Blue

September 2, 2016

Over the next couple of months, several of our Fun Fridays will have a clean and simple twist as we feature the elegant stamping of Patti Kehl.


Grab your dies and ink… it’s time to join Patti and get beautiful in blue! For her first card, Patti’s simple masking and inking leaves us with a winter scene that is fresh and frosty.


Next, inlaid die cutting looks gorgeous with our Creative Die, 51-254 Manger.


And one more BLUE-tiful idea? How about some elegant silver embossing.

Card One: 30-382 Yuletide Wishes, 51-270 Beneath the Birches
Card Two: 51-254 Manger, 30-307 Holiday Snippets
Card Three: 30-375 Merry Jingle, 51-174 Greetings



It’s Friday and that also means…

    I’m singing the blues, but in a good way after seeing all the wonderful ways you used blue in your beautiful card designs. I am loving the dies you used. I am so wanting to just get busy making cards every day again.

    There is something about blue & white cards for Christmas. They are just so right even if we are sweltering in the summer heat in Australia. Such a cooling effect. Beautiful cards beautifully presented. But wait there’s more? Will be keeping my eyes open for them.

    A trio of frosty crisp beauties Patti!! Love the blue and white theme on all of them. Fabulous cards!

    Simply stunning!

    Blue has not been a favorite color, but Patti is quickly showing me how perfect it is for gorgeous Winter scenes.

  32. September 3, 2016 10:39 am

    the blues are perfect for Christmas, I know not a traditional color, but they are so CALM and so PEACEFUL and with the pure white, they make perfect cards! Congrats on this gig friend and thank you for sharing your gift with us!

  33. September 3, 2016 2:59 pm

    It’s always a pleasure to see what Patti’s been creating, these are gorgeous – love the pop of blue 🙂

    Such beautiful cards.. love the blue theme and the images are amazing. I might love the deep most but then who can choose.. your work is so sweet and simple. Thanks for sharing your talent.

    Patti’s array of “elegant, simple’ cards, in lovey shades of blue, are nothing short of stellar. Her blending is top-notch; her showcases of the products, stellar; her creativity, sensational! The Nativity scene, especially, touches my heart. Thank you for bringing Patti’s talent to us…

  38. September 10, 2016 12:43 pm

    I love Patti’s CAS designs and these non-traditional colors are my favorite for Christmas cards! Beautiful work!

  39. September 18, 2016 9:42 pm

    Lovely cards really like the blues on them

    Beautiful cards Patti. You know just how to take an image and bring it life. Really love the tree/deer card the most. But that might just be because I love deer. Just like you, they are beautiful creatures and lovely to see. Great work with the layer of the scene.
