I got happy mail this week! I opened up a decorated envelope to see this absolute beauty!
Peg is one of my sweet friends I stamp with on Fridays each month. She is just one of the nicest people you could meet. She really knocked it out of the park with this gorgeous card. I love the white against the Pool Party that was cut with one of the beautiful Delicate Lace Dies. It is a perfect bottom layer to showcase the beautiful medium daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set punched out with the Medium Daisy Punch. Using Smoky Slate ink to stamp the daisies was a great decision- it is so light and airy. The Smoky Slate ink worked so well with the Clear Faceted Gems. The use of vellum from the Frosted Bouquet Dies added just the right touch with the Pear Pizzazz leaves from the Poppy Moments Dies. And the sweet sentiment from Well Written stamped on one of the Ornate Frames Dies is just so special to me:)
Another smile was put on my face this week when I received another pretty card from my friend, Carla Hess. She used the Daisy Delight and the Daisy Lane stamp sets. The gray, black, and pink palette with embossed vellum leaves from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set are such a great combination. I love the layering of the two different daisies. The two daisy stamp sets look so nice together on Carla’s card. She decorated her envelope, too!
Thank you, Carla, for the sweet words of encouragement:)
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Have a blessed Easter weekend, dear friends. Praying you are well.
Much love sent to you all.
I finally made one! I have been seeing these HOME decor frames all over Pinterest for years!
I wanted a fun activity to do with my stamping girls, and this is what we did last weekend!
We die cut H-M-E out of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to black fun foam letters cut out with the retired Large Letters Dies.
We then adhered them in a shadow box frame over a 5″ x 7″ Crumb Cake panel embossed with the Pinewood Planks Folder.
These would be so fun to do with a craft class or make at a Girl’s Night Out or In!
They also make wonderful gifts especially for the crafty friends in your life!
We traveled through 12 stations making a “O” for each month of the year. The oval is 1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ with the next size up scallop.
As you can see in the white frame, we made a cat oval for October as well as the oval with leaves.
The possibilities are endless with all the stamps and dies we have!
I attended a Shoebox Swap last Saturday with some great girls! At a Shoebox Swap, a stamper creates a card, preps for the card, and each stamper goes to that station and makes that card. There is no die cutting or embossing with the BigShot for time’s sake, so we find creative ways to make our kits. My kit was the Dino Days Fun Fold so I had each stamper use the Stamparatus to stamp on blank white dinos I die cut ahead of time. They just popped the white dino in the template I cut out ahead of time and stamped a perfectly placed dino using Pretty Peacock and Mango Melody ink. I also had the Stitched ovals and scallops cut ahead of time. Easy Peasy.
One of the cards I made was designed by my friend, Jackie Walker. Great card to do with the Daisy Lane stamp set and the Medium Daisy Punch. Jackie had the embossing done and the tag punched in our kits. We stamped the daisies and punched them out.
I love how pretty the Woven Threads DSP looked with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder. I added a Seaside Spray NEW InColor Faceted Dot to the middle of the flower. It has sort of a “tufted” look to it. Doesn’t the NEW Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen NEW InColor ribbon look great in Jackie’s design, too? The touch of a Linen Thread bow ties in well with the ribbon. The tag topper is the NEW Delightful Tag Topper. The Delightful Tag Topper Punch is a great way to add a fun shaped tag to gifts and cards. It cuts tag toppers in 1″ (2.5 cm), 1-1/2″ (3.8 cm), and 2″ (5.1 cm) widths.
I will probably share some other great cards in the future. It was a fun day getting together with fellow demonstrators sharing ideas and cards. Ladies, thank you for all the fun!
