IY_simply_wonderful

Add a few drops of Lost Lagoon Ink to a Stampin' Spritzer filled with 70% rubbing alcohol. Cut a piece of the Irresistibly Yours Paper to 3-1/2 x 5 and spritz it with Lost Lagoon ink mixture, let it dry and wipe off the excess ink with a paper towel.  Attach this to the front of one of the Note Cards.

Punch a 2x3 piece of Whisper White with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and add the two greetings as shown.  Use the Hello Honey Stampin' Write Marker to ink the swirly image on the congrats stamp and stamp it above the greetings, repeat and stamp below the greetings.

Punch three small flowers out of Whisper white and add a rhinestone to the center of each one, add to the tag.  Tie the twine into a bow through the hole in the tag, attach the tag to the front of the card.

Nature's Perfection and Sheer Perfection Vellum

My card today uses the Nature's Perfection stamp set and the coordinating Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum. I stamped the flower image in Rose Red ink onto Watercolor Paper and used my Blender pen to pull the ink from the edges to the centers of the petals

Natures_perfection_glitter
I cut the Vellum sheet and added it near the left edge of my layer.  It may be a bit hard to see in the photo of the full card but I applied a bit of Dazzling Details Glitter Adhesive to some of the petals.

SAB - Big Day and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit

Had a chance to play with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and made some super cute treat bags with it.

Treat_bag_best_day_ever_club

Added a main image with the Big Day Sale-a-bration stamp set layered on a Starburst die cut.  The Bow Builder Punch adds more fun at the top of the greeting.  Use a Metallic Clothespin to clip on a strand of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and these treat bags go together lickety split.

SAB - More Polka Dots with For Being You

I posted THIS CARD a few days ago and then thought it would be fun to use this year's In Colors since Stampin' Up! added an In Color Accessory Pack to the Sale-a-bration offerings this month.  I also wanted to use the new Sale-a-bration stamp set called For Being You so I threw it all together and created today's card.

For_being_you_polka

I am a big fan of polka dots!!  I used the 3/4" and 1" Circle Punches to crop a number of circles in these colors.  I also used the 2014-2016 In Color Stampin' Write Markers to color in the "thanks".

Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets

Washi_sheetsHaving some fun with these Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets. The sheets are on page 11 of the Occasions Catalog. The package includes eight 6x12 sheets, two each of four designs in Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray, Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral.

 

This is one of our Petite Cafe Gift Bags.  A star framelit was used to cut a hole out of the bag and then a piece of Window Sheet was adhered inside.  A smaller Star Framelit was used to cut a star from the Calypso Coral Washi Sheet and that was adhered to the window sheet.  The small white star is the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and the tiny star is a star sequin from the 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment.

CIAF-Project1balt-jan15
A strip of the Crushed Curry Washi Sheet was added to the front of the bag on the diagonal to create separation and the word "baby" from the Crazy About You stamp set was stamped in White Craft Ink.

Fold the top down and wrap with some Crisp cantaloupe Thick Baker's Twine and Gold Sequin Trim.  die cut the word "happy".

SAB - Big Day and Some Polka Dots

Had some fun with the Big Day Sale-a-bration stamp set.  This set has five stamps, the three greetings I used on my card and a birthday cake and candle. 

You can earn this set FREE with a $50 order placed with me. 

Big_day_polka_dots

I cut a 2" strip of Whisper White card stock, punched the top with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch, stamped the three images, one after the other and trimmed the bottom. I colored the images with the 2013-2015 In Color Stampin' Write Markers. 

I punched 1" and 3/4" circles from the four colors, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Whisper White.  I placed them on a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Crumb Cake, making sure to place some on the edges and trimming off the excess.

I threaded the three colors of Thick Baker's Twine through the hole in the tag to create the fun tassel.
