January Thank Yous - Inlaid Rose

Happy Sunday!

Today's card is what my customers received for placing an on-line order during the month of January.


Lots of shimmer and sparkle with this card! I used Shimmery White card stock for the card base and layers. Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper was used for the rose outline, which was inlaid in the card. The sentiment is from the Sale-a-Bration What I Love stamp set.

A little less sparkle on the inside:


The rose that was die cut from the front was used as the outline for the rose on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies used:  Blushing Bride, Old Olive, and Shimmery White CS, Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, Blushing Bride Ink, Elegant Dots EF, Rose Garden Thinlits, and What I Love (SAB) Stamp Set

December Thank Yous - What I Love

Happy Friday!

Today's card(s) is what my customers received for placing an on-line order during the month of December. I made two versions and still can't decide which one I like better.

Here's the first one:


Triple time stamping technique with the What I Love stamp set, which is one of the Free Sale-a-bration offerings. This is a three-step flower stamp, though I opted to only use two! I stamped leaves on this card and used Old Olive Baker's Twine.

Here is the second version:


This version is basically the same, except I didn't stamp leaves and I used Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine.

The inside of both versions is the same:


So, which version do you like better?

Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies used:  Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White CS, Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler, and Old Olive Ink, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Baker's Twine, and What I Love Stamp Set (SAB freebie!)

November Thank Yous - Snow Place

Happy Wednesday!

I'm starting to catch-up with a backlog of projects to post. Today's card is what my customers received for placing an on-line order during the month of November.



I punched a circle from a post-it note and placed it on the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder before brayering it and running it through the BigShot with Whisper White CS. A piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper creates a glistening snow mound for the Snow Place 'family.' 

Here's a look at the inside and coordinating envelope:



The Snow Place Stamp Set and Snow Friends Framelits (and 15% savings bundle) have carried over to the Occasions Catalog (page 48) and the oh-so-popular Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder will return in the Annual Catalog in June!

Thanks for stopping by!



Supplies used:  Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White CS, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, Cherry Cobbler, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Pumpkin Pie Marker, Woodland Textured Impressions EF, Snow Friends Framelits, and Snow Place Stamp Set

IBS Valentine's Day Window Scene Card

Happy Monday! 

For my Inspired by Stamping post today, I have a card using the new My Valentine’s stamp set.


I knew I wanted to use the cute bicycle image, so I built my card around that:


After heat embossing the bicycle, from My Valentine’s, and the butterflies, from Diamonds, I used blue and green ink to sponge an ‘outdoor look.’ The sentiment was also heat embossed. A piece of crochet trim, from the Spring Lilacs Ribbon Collection, made a cute ‘valance’ for the window.

Here is a look at the inside:


After heat embossing the sentiment, I used the Fancy Label Dies 1 for die cutting and matting. There are so many beautiful sentiments in the My Valentine’s stamp set, it was hard to choose which one to use!

Thanks for stopping by!
