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!

Fruitful Birthday

Today’s card features some scrumptious Designer Series Paper – Fruit Stand. It’s part of the Fruit Stand suite on pages 148-149 of the Annual Catalog.

Sending Love

I just love the softness of Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon. It allows the Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder to absolutely POP against them! And I can’t say enough about the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits… they are perfect with the Sunshine Sayings stamp set. There are so many options with this bundle and you can save 10% when you purchase them together!  Don’t forget to use the Magnetic Platform and Precision Base Plate to get perfectly cut dies…and the magical Die Brush to get all the little pieces out without grief!

Watercolor Wishes Card Kit

I had been eye-balling the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit in the Annual Catalog (page 155) for quite a while when I first saw it. It has an exclusive stamp set that you cannot purchase separately and I really wanted it. I decided to buy the kit last fall…and then it sat on my table for the longest. I had opened the box a couple times to look at the pretty embellishments and designs, but that was as far as I had gotten.  Last night, though, I decided to break the plastic open to make a couple Birthday cards.  About 2 hours later, I had made ALL 20 CARDS!  They were so easy, fun and sweet!  And I love the heavy cardstock bases.  Nothing cheap about these!  Everything you need is included in the kit – card bases, wooden embellishments, stamps, stamp block, Night of Navy and Watermelon Wonder Ink Spots, Washi tape, die cut stickers and die cut flowers, glue dots and dimensionals and all the matching envelopes!  The kit makes 3 sizes of cards – standard 5 1/2 x 4, notecard 3 1/2 x 5, and cute little square 4 x 4.  The exclusive stamp set has several all-occasion greetings, but I ended up making all Birthday cards, so I used 6 stamps in the set.

Here we have a clean and simple card that anyone would love to receive. I just love the dainty doily half on the front.  It’s one of those embellishments that is hidden in the Annual Catalog.  The silver metallic thread lends an almost-unseen je ne sais quoi.

Happy Birthday, Miss Melody!

Here’s the adorable card I sent to a sweet little girl celebrating her First Birthday. I realized as I was writing my list of ingredients used for the card that there’s no actual stamping on it. Never fear! On the inside I stamped the word “Birthday” in Watermelon Wonder and random dots in Bermuda Bay with the Endless Birthday Wishes photopolymer stamp set. The thinlits are glued on using the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen in the Holiday Catalog, which kept it nice and clean. I popped up the Watermelon Wonder/Cherry on Top layers with Dimensionals so the punched out circle would have a nice shadow. Love how it turned out – and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper is gorgeous! Why do I not use it more often?

Happy 1st Birthday

Cardstock: Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder
Designer Series Paper: Cherry on Top
Specialty Paper: Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Thinlits: Hello You, Little Numbers

Be sure to share your love of stamping with those you love!
