Fry Treat Box

The Fry Bigz Die is on the retirement list, say it isn't is. Check out my video for a cute teacher treat!

Watch my video to see how I made the tag using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. Did you know this set has lots of other dies in it besides the Mini Treat Bag? Check out my supply list below.

Botanicals Wedding Card, Stampin' Up! Only Challenge

This is another card I made with my Stampin' Friends. Joy designed this gorgeous card. I thought it would make a great Wedding card. It also is perfect for this weeks challenge. You can play along too: A friend of my Son's is getting married soon and he is going to give this card.

We started off with Whisper White die cut with the largest Lots of Labels Framelits, Dies. That piece was embossed with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder and glued to the center of the Black card base (5 1/2" x 8 1/2"). I should use this folder more often.......Next add your ribbon. Since this was a card that folded on the left, I took my 1/2" Circle Punch and punched a very small bit so the ribbon could pass right through. Then we added all the die cut flowers and leaves from the Botanical Builder Framlits. (Thank you Joy for die cutting them all out for us).
I think you can see I "winked" part of the flowers with Wink of Stella. I later added the sentiment from And Many More. So glad that both of the stamp sets, Botanical Blooms, And Many More are not retiring.

This is a great color combo, don't you think?

Swirly Birds Thank You

I'm giving you a sneak peak at one of my favorite stamp sets in the pre-order, Swirly Birds Bundle. You can save (starting June 1-2016) 10% when you order the bundle which comes with the stamp set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies. Trust me, you will want both.

I'm also using 3 of the new In Colors, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy. I can hear you now, ohhh, how pretty! This was a pretty simple card to put together. I should mention for the leaves, I stamped off once with the Emerald Envy and then stamped on the card or my scrap of white to die cut them. Then I used the Emerald (full strength) for the veins in the leaves
This one is the Flirty Flamingo.
Peekaboo Peach for this card base. Which do you like better? I can't decide.

I almost forgot, the thank you is also from a new stamp set, Thoughtful Banners. It has a bunch of words and a Duet Banner Punch. Another one you can save 10% with the bundle.

It seems to be a trend cutting the words apart and mounting them on your card.

Pop of Pink!

I love to send my Top 2 in Sales a fun card and a little something.

So this is what I made for Doreen and Carol. They each got a spool of ribbon from me as well.

You are probably wondering, where can I find that Designer Paper, Stamp Set? Well, come June 1st you can order your own. Its the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper and the Layering Love Stamp Set. I die cut the heart from the new Sweet and Sassy Framelits. 15 heart framelits, whooohoo!! These framelits coordinate 5 different stamp sets. That little flower is from the Swirly Bird Stamp set and it has matching Thinlits, can we get another whoohooo?
I used the same piece of paper, but turned it over to use the other patterns. Isn't this paper cute?
You can see I did a very simple weave only at the top. Hmmmm, I should have used some of the matching Washi Tape.......darn it!

Check out this great color combo:

You can order most of these products on June 1st! 12 more days!

Botanicals, Happy Birthday!

This is another card from our day of stamping with the girls. Sharon is the fabulous designer of this card.

Card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" in Delightful Dijon. The Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper is cut at, 4" x 5 1/4. Make a tic mark at 2 5/8", cut in to 2 1/8" and fold back each piece. Easy peasy!
Add your greeting (again, hanging my head, I don't know which stamp set this is from) using Memento Ink (or whatever black ink you have), add a few Rhinestones, because everything is prettier with bling, right? Then add your flowers from the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.

Right now you can get the stamp set, Designer Series paper and dies at the bundle price which is 15% off. After May 31st, the bundle price goes away......just sayin', if you want this set, get it now so you can save $$$ for the new catalog.......This is a great bundle and the designer paper will no longer available after the 31st.

Great color combo:
