Blooming Marvelous: Celebrate Spring!

This is another card that I made with the Blooming Marvelous stamp set (one of the Sale-a-bration set!). I also used the greeting “Celebrate” from the “Feeling Sentimental” stamp set (another Sale-a-bration set!).  This card has a real “Spring” feel! The new Bitty Butterfly punch fits perfectly with the butterfly stamp in that set.  I used it to make a “raised” butterfly. I think it really adds to the card by creating more dimensions.  The Fancy Fan embossing in the background also complements the texture.

Sale-a-bration set Petite Pretties: a two for one!

I’ve been so busy lately with my classes and workshops that I couldn’t post any cards. But today’s a 2 for 1! You get 2 cards in one day!!!

The Sale-a-bration set “Petite Pretties” is so cute and it’s made to match the Sale-a-bration punch “Petite Curly Label”! They are two of my favorite items!!!  I used both in the two cards I made for you today.  It’s not too late to get these 2 items for free! Email me your order before March 22!!!

The first card uses the new Honeycomb embossing folder and the Sycamore Designer Series paper (you can get this free too as a Sale-a-bration item!!!).  Here’s a little trick I learned for cutting your hexagons to go inside the “honeycomb”. Run a piece of DSP through the Big Shot with the Honeycomb embossing folder and then, follow the embossed lines to cut the hexagons.  You will be sure it fits just right!!!

I used the Curly Label punch to frame my Petite Curly Label and used the Essential Piercing pack to make the little holes all around for a nice finishing touch.

For the second one, I layered the Petite Curly Label on top of the Postage Stamp punch and added a little flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack, with a rhinestone to complete it. I took the colors from the Sycamore DSP: Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo.

Vintage Verse and Circles say “Thanks!”

I think today’s card is pretty colorful and it makes me happy! What do you think? I used a bunch of circles and added different embossing to make it more interesting!  The big “Thanks” from “Vintage Verse” stamp set adds an other focal point.  I like the button too (those are the buttons from the Sale-a-bration items!!! You can get them in a bundle in 3 colors along with 3 color satin ribbons.)

Sale-a-bration Vintage Verse: “Just because…”

When I started to make this card, it was something completely different!!! You never know how it’s going to turn out after all!

I used the Vine Street embossing folder (the folder you can get as a FREE item during the Sale-a-bration) for the background and a strip of Sycamore Street designer series paper (also a Sale-a-bration item).  The greeting is from “Vintage Verse”, one of the SAB set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White cardstock and cut with the Decorative Label punch.

To make the flower, I used the Creped Filter paper (available in the mini-catalogue p.6).  I used  the 2-3/8″ and the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle punches to cut two flowers of each size. I also used the Boho Blossom punch to cut the biggest flower of that punch.  Then, with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and Indigo Island ink, I sprayed each flower and let dry.  I stacked all the flowers, attached with a Rich Razzleberry glimmer brad and crumpled the flowers to add some dimension. I used glue dots to attach the Pool Party satin ribbon underneath.

Vintage Verse Sale-a-bration set meets Bloomin’ Marvelous

For today’s card, I used 2 Sale-a-bration sets: Vintage Verse (There’s only one you) and Bloomin’ Marvelous (the Turquoise butterfly).  The other butterfly is from the “Papillon Potpourri” set, that I really like too! You can now get the smaller butterfly punch that coordinate with both the Papillon Potpourri and Bloomin’ Marvelous. (It’s called “Bitty Butterfly”.) I wanted to make the butterfly really stand out, to go with the greeting “There’s only one you”.  I stamped it in Midnight Muse ink and colored it with the Markers. It’s raised with a dimensional to make it “pop” even more.  In the background, I used the new Honeycomb embossing folder.
