Flower Shop and Washi Tape Card

Today’s color combo is one that I truly like: Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight. It’s fresh and classy! I used the Flower Shop stamp set and the coordinated Pansy punch to make this cute card. Some Designer Washi Tape helps to complete the card.

Scalloped Tag Topper and Work of Art

Good Morning to you! I hope you like today’s card!  The main focus on this card is a tag that I created with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. I used some of the Beach House Washi Tape to decorate it and I stamped the tag with the new “Work of Art” stamp set. I added a Real Red “Petite Petal” flower for a punch of color! The background is embossed with the Honeycomb embossing folder.

The Scalloped Tag Topper is perfect for so many uses! It’s a great addition to your stamping supplies! Shop online here!

Petite Petals, Gorgeous Grunge and Washi Tape: Fast and Easy card!

Today’s card is a quick and easy card that I put together in no time at all! Don’t you like those last minute cards that you can finish in less time than you would take going to the store?

I used the Gorgeous Grunge set (my favorite background set, that I use ALL the time!) and the Petite Petals stamp set with the coordinated punch. These two sets are awesome for beginners (and for long-time stamper too!) as they are so versatile! I also used a strip of Washi Tape from the Project Life Everyday Adventure Accessory pack. The greeting is from “Four You”, a very good greeting set for new stampers too!

Saying Good-bye to “Rev up the fun!”

Here’s a card that I made for my nephew’s birthday. I used the “Rev up the Fun!” stamp set, the perfect set for boy’s cards!  This set will be retiring at the end of May (sniff sniff…)

For the background, I used the Designer series paper “Epic Day This and That” which coordinates perfectly with the Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape!

I stamped the car with Versamark and heat embossed it with Pewter embossing powder. I used the Silver Card stock (in the Occasion mini-catalog p.23) to cut the “11”.

“You Make me Happy ” Tag Card

Today’s card was made with “Valentine’s Day” in mind, but I think it’s a card that you could also give at any moment during the year to someone very special in your life.

I used the Happy Watercolor stamp set ,which I have to admit, is probably my favorite in the new Occasion mini-catalogue! I also used the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create the tag on the card. (See this post where I also used it on another card.) After making the tag, I put some Watercolor Wonder Washi tape on it and than I used the Hearts a Flutter Collection Framelits to cut the small heart out.

For the background, I first stamped the image that look like Watercolor splatters from Happy Watercolor set in Crumb Cake. Then I stamped the little dots in Gold Metallic ink as well as the saying “You make me happy”. I embossed the card stock with the Decorative Dots embossing folder and sponged it with Crumb Cake around the edges.

Stamp set: Happy Watercolor, Express Yourself

Happy Watercolor new stamp set and Washi Tape

My kids are back to school today, so I was happy to be able to go to my stamp room and play with some of my new products from the Occasion mini-catalogue!

I really love this new stamp set called “Happy Watercolor” and I’m sure you’ll see quite a few creations with this set this Spring! This set is part of the Watercolor Wonder Suite (see it p.22-23 in the new mini-catalogue)! Products in the “suite” are meant to coordinate well together.  The new Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape is also pretty awesome with his gold color! (I used all three designs on the card below!) I also used the new Gold Baker’s twine, sure to add a beautiful finishing touch to all your projects!

If you like this card, we’ll be making it at my next Monthly Card Class, Friday January 31, at 7:00 pm. Please email me if you want to register, as space is limited! (Julie_olivier@hotmail.com)
