Sneak Peek

A really neat Hostess Gift featured in the new catalog coming out June 1 is the motivation for this card. It's called Simply Sketched (129672) and I really love it. It has several sentiments and pictures to match! The card base is Gumball Green with a Raspberry Ripple mat. I used papers from the Print Poetry Designer Paper Stack (129312).


Lining the envelope with matching designer paper is really a nice touch. I also stamped the leaves and berries on the outside of the envelope. These are confetti envelopes and I don't think SU sells them anymore but the Very Vanilla would work nicely too. The paper ribbon was done using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch 119275 (which is carried over into the new catalog!).

OH BTW I scanned the envelope top into my Silhouette Program and now can but matching liners that FIT exactly!

Until next time!

Kindness Matters

Inspired by Susan Itell (a member of Pretty Pals) I made this card with a 'matching' envelope! It is a great way to use your designer paper and adds so much to your card.

Starting with Whisper White as a card base I added a mat from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper tablet (129312); added another mat from Polka Dot Parade (126902). I stamped a small piece of Whisper White with the Kindness Matters butterflies (Midnight Muse Classic Ink 126860) and stamped the sentiment (same stamp set) then punched it with the Extra Oval Punch 119859. Dimension was added by putting the sentiment and butterfly mat on Dimensionals! Nice added touch!


Then I used another sheet from Print Poetry to line the Whisper White envelope. This added so much pizzazz to your handmade card! Oh I forgot to mention I embossed the butterflies using the Cloud Embossing Folder.

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are always welcome and much appreciated.

Until next time!

Over-sized Quilt

I saw this quilted card on Mary Fish's Blog this AM made by Maggie Mata! It was too cute to pass up so I had to CASE it. I have some over-sized envelopes so I made this card to fit then lined the inside to match.

I love that quilted look!

Until next time!

Spring is in the Air

Nothing more suitable than a cute little bird house for these Spring birds! This is another Stamping T (Tanya Bell) creation. I just love it. She originally made this for Easter but since it is over, Spring is here! I did not fill it with candy but soon...
It's even big enough for a small gift as well. I didn't have the paper she used but this will do. I used Island Indigo and Raspberry Ripple and Sycamore Street DSP (Sale A Brations) and I added a little butterfly for accent. Enjoy!

Until next time!

Bag-a-lope!

Remember these? I 'inherited' lots of over-sized envelopes so one great creation would be a Bag-a-lope! Fill with candy or whatever and makes super packaging!
We'll be making these at my next 'Mix'N'Mingle' Thursday! (I used retired paper and the felt ornament) Another altered project!

Until next time!

Sent with Love

After cutting out all the stickers to use on the journal project for Tanya's Camera project, I thought I would use what was left over. I have a supply of A7 envelopes (5.25x7.25) so I scored one down the middle cut open the inside and made two pockets; one for a gift card and one for the greeting and message. Turned out really cute.
 Front and inserts for message and card.
Back of  folder

Inside with the cards inserted

Thanks for stopping by and the Sent with Love Bundle 132851 (includes Stamp Set, Designer Paper & Baker's Twine) is a super deal and you can do so much with it.

Until next time!

Recycle your advertisement

Maxwell House sent our neighborhood a sample of their new K-cup coffees. The packaging just begged to be recycled so that's what I did. I used Tea for Two Designer Paper 129511 matted on Island Indigo. The sentiment was from the Feel Goods Stamp Set 129684 cut out using the Labels Collection Framelits 125598 with some Lucky Limeade accents!



I think I might go back and decorate the inside lid! What do you think? It seems to need something. Maybe your postman will leave you a sample too. Oh BTW I drank the Maxwell House and replaced it with Green Mountain!

Until next time!

Sent with Love Boxed Card Set

Another project made using the Sent with Love Bundle (Sent with Love Bundle - 132851 - $25.50 You get the Clear Mount Stamp Set, Designer Paper and Calypso Baker's Twine! (available thru June 15). It is so neat and Tanya Bell convinced me to cut out all the embellishments and that just enabled me to create this boxed card set. The box is made using the back chipboard cardstock from the Designer Paper packet. (Instructions here) Yep on Tanya's blog!



I just love the idea of a boxed set. The box holds 8 cards and matching envelopes! The cards were easy, peasy with all the tags cut and ready to go! Come on, give it a try.

Until next time!

Can be used for any occasion!
