Blushing Bride Tulips

Oh my! I’ve made a few cards already using the new Varied Vases stamp set (you can see them here and here)…but this is the first time using the coordinating punch! These little tulips are just darling and the Mini Dimensionals fit perfectly on them. Everything mini is automatically adorable and this sweet little 3” x 3” card epitomizes it. The stamp set and punch will be available as a bundle to save you 10% starting June 1st. Counting down the days!

Fortunate Break To Go

I’ve been so focused on all the fun new products in the 2018 Occasions catalog that I feel like I’m neglecting all the awesome products I have from the 2017-2018 Annual catalog. I’ve had this adorable set for a while but hadn’t inked it up yet. I thought it would be fun to color it with the Stampin’ Blends…and it was! The Wink of Stella on the heart on the take-out box gives it the perfect touch of dazzle and the little enamel heart is too cute!

Tailored Fresh Pears

Today I’m sharing with you the thank you cards for my Birthday gifts. It’s been awhile since I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board and I sure have missed it! It’s so fun making envelopes to match your cards. Here’s a set of 6 cards with envelopes that only use 2 sheets of cardstock and 2 sheets of Designer Series Paper (DSP), along with some scraps of neutral. The card bases are cut 3” x 8” and scored at 4”. This adorable size requires a 6” square piece of DSP to make an envelope. So, we’re using one full piece and half of the second for the envelopes. That leaves half a sheet to cut front layers. These cards feature some retired products, but I just love pears (especially Anjou!) and wanted to use the lovely Fruit Stand DSP.

Tailored Fresh Pears

Stamp Set:  Fresh Fruit*
Cardstock:  Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper:  Fruit Stand*
Ink:  Pear Pizzazz
Lovelies:  Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon*, Pearl Basic Jewels

Perfect Plum Painted Harvest

I can’t get enough of this Painted Harvest stamp set! It is so beyond versatile and I really like using them as my own “Designer Series Paper” for backgrounds. Since the last card I made using this set was super bright, I thought I’d tone it down a little and focus on purples. So happy with this!

Ink:  Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder

Spotlight on Shimmery Black

I am fully in love this the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. It is so vibrant and makes me happy! I am also fully in love with the current trend that features accents of black and decided to focus on this gorgeous 3/8” Black Shimmer Ribbon. I wanted one more little pop of black, so I used a cotton swab dipped into Staz-on Jet Black permanent ink and dabbed the color onto our Rhinestone Basic Jewels. It dried quickly and makes the perfect accent. I am quite pleased with the aesthetics of this card!

A Little Old, A Little New & A Little Carry-Through

My club order arrived today and I always put a little thank you card in with each order. I thought it would be fun to make little 3” x 3” square cards and have a little old (Watermelon Wonder Cardstock & Ink, Tasty Treats Specialty DSP), a little new (Wood Words Stamp Set, Wood Crate Framelits), and a little carry-through (Whisper White Bakers Twine, Pear Pizzazz Ink). I crack myself up with my rhyme! These 6 adorable cards only took 20 minutes to make and I can’t stop smiling when I look at those stinkin’ cute little strawberries I added to the envelopes, too!

Cardstock:  Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White

Jar of Flowers for Mother’s Day

It’s pretty obvious who this card was given to today. My mother is a wonderful woman that is always there for me. I love her tremendously! She bought me the Jar of Love bundle for Christmas last year, so I thought it would be fun to use it for her. Yellow, green and blue are her favorite colors and I threw a splash of pink in there for good measure. It was a little time consuming with all the die cutting, but she is totally worth it!
