This project lays flat and you could slip a small gift inside.  What do you think of my flower?  It is one of our Paper Daisies.  I added some Baja Breeze Ink Refill and some water to an empty buttons container and added the flower.  I allowed it to dry, attached it to my project and added a Crumb Cake button to the center.

No Twisting in This Kiss!

SimplefriendshiptwistedkissingpinkAfter I played around wth the Twisted Kissing technique, I wondered what the kiss would look like without the twist.  I paired Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red and used the Fine Flourish single stamp with the butterfly from the Simple Friendship set to find out. 

I really like it!!! 

The friend greeting is from a new set in the Occasions Mini Catalog called You're a Gem.

Petal Cone Die Ice Cream Cone Card

Petalconeicecream How cool is this!!!  It is an Ice Cream Cone Card made from the New Petal Cone Bigz L Die 121810 and the Big Shot.

I ran my Crumb Cake card stock through the Big Shot with the new Petal Cone die and cut off the long side tab and one of the petals.  I ran the bottom of the cone through the Big Shot again with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate 115962 and added some Crumb Cake ink with a sponge dauber.

The scoop of Ice Cream is another "petal" off the die that I cut from Pretty in Pink card stock and sponged with Regal Rose ink.  The ripple on the ice cream scoop is from the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die 120903 Die that is still available for purchase.

Petalconeicecreamin Here is the inside of the card.  I cut my Whisper White piece to just fit inside the cone area and stamped it with a greeting from the Birthday Bliss 115442 stamp set.   Thanks to Holly for inspiring this project.

Technique Geeks Class-Dual Embossing

Multicolorembossing

Yesterday was my monthly Technique Geeks Class and we learned Dual Embossing and Twisted Kissing.

We had a blast as usual.  My next Technique Geeks Class is Saturday, February 12th from 2-4.  Come join us!!

Artisticetchings We used the Artistic Etchings stamp set for the medallions and cut them out with the 1 1/4" Square Punch.  The Elegant Thank You single stamp was punched out with the 1 3/8 Square Punch.  The backer for one of the medallions was done by using the Scallop Trim Corner Punch on a 2x2 piece of Basic Black card stock. 

You can purchase the items in my Online Store by clicking on the link for each item.

Printed Petals Happy Birthday

Printedpetalsbutton I found this card in my photo files and realized that I had not shared it with you. :-)

I used the Printed Petals W116679,C120444 and Curly Cute W117014, C120510 stamp sets.  My colors came from the Color Coach and are Pretty in Pink, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight.  What a fun springy card.  The center accent of the hand cut flower is a Subtles Button with a super skinny strip of card stock used as thread. 

TIP:  If you want to use card stock as thread, burnish it with your bone folder first.  Pretend you are curling ribbon.  This will break down the fibers in the card stock and make it more pliable for tying.

The background was created with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 117335 and I only ran about 2/3 of it through the Big Shot.

I used my Scallop Trim Border Puch on the Marina Mist strip and added Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain and Daffodil Delight 1/8" Ribbon on top of that for the accent strip.
