Classic cream and black

I love the classic look of these cards! I was inspired by Dawn Olchefske, who makes such lovely things. I used 6x6 textured Vanilla cardstock, scored in half. Then stamped the large image from the Sale-a-bration set Fresh Vintage in black. Emboss with the oval Designer Frames embossing folders (also available for Sale-a-bration!). Then add a sentiment punched with the large oval punch. I also used the new Diagonal Plate to make envelopes from First Edition Specialty DSP. So fun!

Don't let Sale-a-bration pass you by! March 31 is the deadline to get your FREE product with every $50 purchase.

Treat Tube Again!

Here's another treat tube like the one I posted Tuesday. This one is a little larger--it holds about 12 candies. The flower top on this one comes from the Big Shot Flower Folds die. When I first saw these, I thought they looked kind of tricky to make, but they really aren't! Give them a try for Easter or Mother's Day, or any time you need a little gift!

With a cherry on top!

If only we had scent capabilities on the internet, you'd be able to smell the cherry embossing powder on this card! We made this card at club on Tuesday using the Mouthwatering set and the yummy scented embossing powder. So fun! Can't wait for cherries to be ripe here, but it's still a few months away. Guess I'll just have to be happy with the embossing powder!

You're so sweet

This card makes me anxious for summer! And what goes better with summer weather than ice cream? Nothing!

We'll be making this card and matching envie tonight at March's club meeting. If you're local and interested in joining or just attending a club meeting, let me know!

Pretty stripes

This is my current favorite card! I saw the sketch on Pinterest and knew it was perfect for these brads. The DSP and brads are from the Everyday Enchantment suite in the Sale-a-bration catalog. And don't you love the Pool Party twine! Yummy!

This is a great sketch for long scraps, and a fun way to make a quick card.
