Wedding Bells are Ringing!

Wedding season is among us! The two cards below were created with the Pefect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, and the Designer Frames Embossing Folder. Also used was the Ovals Originals Die and 5/8" Satin Ribbon in Whisper White both items will be retiring May 31st, get yours before they're gone!

The first card features Pool Party cardstock and the Elements of Style Stamp Set for the sentiment. Great thing about this sentiment is that it can be used for Wedding, Bridal Shower or Anniversary!
The second card features Basic Black cardstock and the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set for the sentiment. I love the classic, elegant look of both of these cards!

Cheerful Happy Birthday!!

I made this card for my best friend's birthday.. I utilized Cheerful Treat Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set, both items were part of the Hostess section of the catalog but now you can order them on my website since they will be retiring May 31st!! Also used on this card was the Build-a-Blossom stamp set along with the coordinating Blossom Petals Punch (neither are retiring)!

If you want to learn how to make this card, contact me, I'd love to teach you how!!

"Boyish" Simple Thank You

Hubby had a birthday back in April... the big 2-9! This is a simple thank you card that I put together for him to send out, the best thing about this card is that it was so easy to make multiples!

This card is 4"x4" in size, I used Basic Grey, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight cardstock. The circles were made using the Circles #2 Originals die and the smallest circles were made with the Owl Builder Punch. The orange label was made using the Decorative Label Punch... only I punched it twice to make it smaller. Want to learn how? Check out this video tutorial. The sentiment came from the Just Believe stamp set. Lastly, I also used the Square Lattice embossing folder after I glued down my circles, this gives it the effect of being one piece of cardstock!
