Sending Love

This is my take on a Convention project using the stamp set Easy Events. I wanted to use this set for my hostess club in September, because the images are so versatile! Notice the score lines, too--Simply Scored is my favorite new tool! and I've had other scoring boards for years. I'm really happiest with Simply Scored.

Stamps: Easy Events
Paper: Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Naturals White
Ink: Black StazOn, Wild Wasabit Pool Party, Melon Mambo
Accessories: 1 1/4" Melon Mambo Ribbon, Simply Scored, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, White Baker's Twine, 2 1/2" circle punch, Blender Pens

Make a wish!

This card is one I made just for fun! I almost never just do that, unfortunately. But I had a picture in my head of this card, and I needed to get it made! The pennant is from the Big Shot Perfect Pennants die, and it opens up. You could put a fun message in there, or even money--which is always the best surprise! 

Hope all your wishes come true today!

Stamps: Pennant Parade
Paper: Whisper White, Concord Crush, In Color DSP Stack (Wisteria), Brights DSP Stack (Daffodil)
Ink: White gel pen, Concord Crush
Accessories: Rhinestones, 1/8" Daffodil ribbon, 1 1/4" circle punch, Top Note Die, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Perfect Pennants Die

Butterflies in fall colors

This was my swap for September's club. The theme was butterflies, but I'm feeling *SO* happy fall is making an appearance! I used Pool Party (ok, not that fall-ish), More Mustard, and Calypso Coral. Isn't it fascinating how a color combination can change the entire feel of a card?

Is it fall yet where you are?

Falling into fall

The new Holiday Mini Catalog is now live! There are so many GREAT new stamps and products, I hardly know where to start. This is a swap I made with the set Gently Falling. I used the gorgeous new DSP, Spice Cake, and brayered Cherry cobbler over the vanilla pattern in the middle. The ribbon is also new to the mini catalog--Quilted Early Espresso Satin Ribbon in 3/8" width. The background is stamped with the outline images from this set, but each one has a matching "filler" image. I love sets like this, and I hope to have many more samples to show you this fall!
