A fifth avenue flight!

For this card, I dusted off my Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and Beautiful Wings embosslit folder. I chose to do this with just 2 colors, Rich Razzleberry and Marina Mist. In order to make 2 of these cards with only 1 sheet each color, I chose the base color to be different.
I just love the satin ribbon we sell! It is so soft and just beautiful! I layed a piece down and tied a 1/4" Marina Mist grosgrain ribbon on top. I just love how this came out! I also used Tombow adhesive (found in our catalog) in the middle of the butterflies to help their wings to pop up.
I hope the recipients of these cards enjoy it as much as I do!! Thanks for looking!!

a Sweet Birthday!

I pulled out my Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set for this card. I loved this card from WendyBell. I chose Soft Suede, Pretty in Pink and Cherry Cobbler for the colors. I also used the Background Texturz plates to add the pick polka dots on the pink layer. I don't usually make bows this way and was quite pleased that it looked so well after the first try!!

Thanks for looking!!

Finally did some Scrapbooking!

I am so excited to have worked on my scrapbooks this weekend.

First, I have had a 12x12 frame for the longest time and knew instantly when I saw these pictures what I was going to do!!
I used part of the Christmas Cheer Simply Stampin' set for this. All paper and punches are SU...the title is misc Sizzix alphabet dies

The other two are part of my younger son's scrapbook.
I hope you all enjoy!!

August Hostess Club ~Milk Carton goodies!

I am so excited to start the new round of Hostess Club! Thursday we will be making this super cute gift set!!
Isn't this just so CUTE!! Does that DSP look familiar!? In last catalog, it was made with Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulance...I was glad to see the pattern back but with a different color pallette!! (Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait)The milk cartons were made with the Milk Carton Big Shot die! So super easy! It cuts and scores at the same time so you just need to add some Sticky Strip and whoo-lah...your done!! I used the mini library clips to close these so my club can add something fun inside before they seal it up!

I also brought out some Window Sheets to add to the punched butterflies...I like that it gives it a more finished look and the Ice Circle brads just finish it off!
This would make a great gift for any occassion! Make some for Halloween! Christmas! Just because!! This is sure to be a favorite go-to Big Shot die for a quick easy adorable gift!!

I hope my Hostess Club enjoys!! I know I sure did...and even my husband thought it was great!!

See you all Thursday!!

Do you ever work on a card and love it so much you can't wait to take it's picture, send or share with others??

Well, I did with this card!!
Probably a mix of breaking out a new stamp set I fell in love with as soon as I saw it in the catalog and the same with the DSP!

I loved this card from ilinacrouse on SCS but didn't have the exact papers she used so used the polka dots (I LOVE THEM) from the Jolly Holiday DSP pack!

I am also kinda, sorta addicted to the jewels and added them here on the cute mushroom!! It was just what it needed!!I also used dimensionals to pop up the stamped image.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!

A Birthday Oldie

I recently went to a 60th surprise birthday party for my husbands uncle and borrowed Thoughts of Father stamp set (a retired set) from a friend of mine to make this card...Thanks Paula!!
I also used some retired DSP and cardstock (Thoroughly Modern DSP and Bermuda Bay cardstock) and Confetti White and Soft Suede cardstock. I colored in the stamp with markers and sponging. To finish it off I tied some Linen Thread on to the side.

Thanks for looking!!

Just Believe birthday wish

As soon as I saw this stamp set (Just Believe page 109) I knew I had to have it! In fact, it was the first set I got out of the new catalog!! I used markers to ink the stamp and then stamped the bottom on another sheet and cut it out and used dimensionals to pop up the grass...hard to see in the picture but well worth it!

I also stamped the green base with the grass from the Inspired by Nature stamp set (page 104) in versamark for some added faux texture.
And seriously...have you seen the new Basic Jewels?!?!? They are pictured on page 188 and you get SO many for only $4.95 (and check out the pearls too!!)
I had finished the card and happen to get a SU shipment in and as soon as I pulled out the jewels I knew I could add them to the card!! I love that they are already backed with adhesive so pick off and place right on your project!!
