Blushing Valentine

I wanted to give my Stampin’ Club members sweet little Valentine goodies to thank them for being in my club. I realized the sentiment “You’re the sweetest” from the Sale-a-Bration set Tasty Trucks was perfect! I kept it soft and sweet with the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper in the background. Hunter told me a great tip when it comes to using embellishments like the little pearls. She said that our eyes find it more visually appealing when things are in the shape of a triangle. So, when I added the pearls, I put them into a triangular layout…and I think she’s right!  It gives it a great balance.  I used punches for the sentiment and the tag top, framelits for the circle and thinlits for the hearts. Punching and die cutting makes everything easy and fun, the only thing left to do was to put a couple yummy cookies into cellophane bags and attach the tags!

Hot Dog! Retirement Card

There’s a man I know that is retiring from a local community college at the end of this year. He’s the kind of guy  that will definitely get a chuckle out of a hot dog truck! This truck is too stinkin’ cute! It’s from an upcoming Sale-a-Bration set called Tasty Trucks. I keep laughing every time I look at it! The set will be available to earn beginning January 4, 2017.  I even broke out my Stampin’ Write markers for this task. I haven’t colored with them in a long time and had forgotten how fun that can be.

Notice the windows, lights and reflectors. How funny! I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen and added a layer of the glue. When it dries, it’s all shiny!
