Sweet Sayings with Another Great Year

Super quick card I made for a monthly swap. I used the Sweet Sayings Cards and Envelopes that are available until February 14th.  There are twelve cards with envelopes in the package for only $5.95.  These cards have a super cute printed border around them but the middle is blank so you can add your own images.  Since the middle is blank, you can use them all year round, not just for Valentine's Day. :-)

I chose the large Happy Birthday image from a new set in the Occasions Catalog called Another Great Year.  I love this image, it can be inked with markers or paper pieced for fun and different looks.

Another_great_year_sweet_sayings

The image was inked with Coastal Cabana and I highlighted the smaller words with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker. I punched a 1" circle near the top on the right side.  I inked up the cupcake stamp with Crisp Cantaloupe and Real Red Markers and stamped it on the punched out piece.  Closed the card, added a bit of SNAIL to the back of the circle and pressed it into the negative space so there is a fun little detail on the inside of the card.

The Sweet Sayings Cards come with envelopes (4 each of Real Red, Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana) so I stamped the birthday cake image on the front.

Hearts a Flutter with Sequins

Had some fun combining a number of products to create this Valentine's Day card. I started with the Hearts a Flutter stamp and the Hearts a Flutter Framelits.

Heartsaflutter_tag_card

Added the greeting from the That's the Ticket stamp set and the small row of hearts on the tag is from the Language of Love set in the Occasions Catalog.

The tag is punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and I added a skinny strip of Gold Foil Paper near the bottom of the tag.  The Real Red strip was run through the Big Shot Machine with the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder set.

Spiral Flower with Another Great Year - Birthday Gift

I am loving the NEW Another Great Year Bbrthday set from the Occasions Catalog.  It has the large Happy Birthday saying along with a few other fun iimages.

I used one of our Tag a Bag Gift Bags and stamped the main image in Versamark and heat set it with our Melon Mambo Embossing Powder.  The bags are only $3.95 for a package of ten.

Another_great_year_bag

I added a Scalloped Tag, by using the New Scalloped Tag Topper Punch with a Mini Metallic Clothespin to keep it closed.  The tag was stamped with an image from Gorgeous Grunge and I added a Spiral Flower.  This is one of the new dies in the Occasions Catalog.

Click to see a VIDEO on how simple these flowers are to create.

Another_great_year_bag_closeThe leaves are punched out of Pistachio Pudding card stock with the Blossom Petals Punch that is on the Clearance Rack for only $10.19 that is a whopping 40% discount!!!

I added a Basic Rhinestone to the center for a  little bling.  The happy birthday tag is from the That's the Ticket and it was punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch.

The Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine comes from the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about this fun project.

Beautifully Baroque - Simple Thank You

Super Simple thank you card using the Beautifully Baroque single stamp.  I stamped in in Coastal Cabana and added my thank you greeting in Basic Gray.  I also used the gray diagonal print from the Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape for a bit of interest near the bottom. I love these colors together, I think they are very striking. :-)
