Illuminate Your Heart In The Golden Hours

Hello Everyone
I am particularly drawn to words so it makes sense that I would be attracted to PaperArtsy Eclectica Sara Naumann designs.
There is such poetry in the words Sara brings to her stamp sets that makes them so appealing and just a little bit different.
The two cards I am sharing in this scheduled post are not DT commitments, they came about as I was in need of cards to send to friends.goldenhourslynnemoncrieffoneA sense of the timeless was what I wanted to achieve with both cards, working with an elegant colour palette of ivory and gold with touches of sepia,

Many thanks for taking the time to visit this post.

    I too love Sara’s words! They always inspire me to create. These cards are fabulous. They are so original and appealing. I adore the colour choices – so elegant and special – and the delightful detail of little buttons and trims that always make your creations stand out. The arrangements with Sandra’s Relics and Artifacts are so gorgeous and the perfect complement to these golden beauties xxx

    Beautiful! I know nothing about Sara Naumann so will have to find out! Both cards have a very elegant and musty feel about them like you just found them in your grandmother’s trunk from when she was a young girl.

    Love the delicate golden splatter – and of course the words taking centre stage. Beautiful, Lynne.

    Lynne, I think the numbers and the splatters make a beautiful background for this card. I am so addicted to alphas, numbers, and of course, words! You always make simple look stunningly beautiful. These words are beautiful. The crushed velvet ribbon and rhinestones are the perfect touch! Thanks for sharing! xx sharon

    My very dear Lynne,to sit here with the beautiful card ,first shown is so magic, for me , Thank you so much. It is a most elegant, lovely and stunning art piece in all its simple beautiful style. You so know how to create beauty with just a few added wonderful pieces, to a gorgeous background. I love the splatters on top of the numbers, and the little shine, of gold from the papers,– the rhinestones, and the the mop-button on top of the velvet . As I wrote in my pm, it is really a Golden Hour when recieving art like this from you.
    Thank you my lovely friend.
    The number two card is as beautiful, as mine, with the handwriting, and wonderful words.
    Sara Naumann`s stamps are to wish for .

    Gorgeously Vintage with a suggestion of regal involvement given the golds and stones. Beautiful! Nicola x

    These cards are elegant, timeless and beautiful. I was drawn to ESN stamps the first time I saw them and the relics and artifacts, too. I can only hope to use them in such a meaningful way as you have done.

    Oh Lynne-These cards are like beautiful pieces of vintage stationery that have been hidden away in a long lost trunk somewhere. Their antique hues of sepia and gold touch on their delicateness and the love that went into creating them. Soooo pretty!! XOXO-Shari
