Just Like You

The Suite Sentiments stamp set has a variety of occasions in it, graduation, Easter, thanks, friend, guy, etc.  For the card today, I paired the stamp set with the Tasty Treats specialty paper pack and some ruched ribbon. 
The piece of specialty paper that I chose is embossed so that the treats are raised and shiny.  I think the variety in the pack is pretty nice - some fun ones and some that are just colors and patterns.

Nailed It

I made a few cards using the Nailed It stamp set and Build It framelits recently and I have a couple versions to share with you today.

On the first one, I used a hexagon that was embossed with the Hexagons dynamic embossing folder behind the tools.  The tools are colored in with markers and I used some retired metallic paint to add a little shine to them.

For the second one, I flipped the card base over and added some Urban Underground specialty paper behind the tools and also added a sentiment from the Suite Sentiments stamp set to make if a graduation card.

I have found that with detailed images that are die cut like these, I tend to do better when I make several cards with them instead of just one here and there.  Maybe they get more use that way, which is a good thing.

Big on Birthdays

The Big on Birthdays stamp set has some fun ways to send birthday wishes and the stamps have fairly large print which I love. 

I chose to pair this saying with the Delicate Details (SAB 2017) stamp set and some Cupcakes and Carousels designer series paper. 

The card started with a Very Vanilla card base before I added the images and I colored in the flowers with So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Old Olive ink.  A few random enamel shapes finished it off.

For You Carton

I ordered some of these cute mini egg cartons months ago and haven't played with them yet so I decided it was about time!  This one is decorated using the Stylish stems framelits and Special Reason stamp set.

I cut out a flower using the Glimmer paper pack (SAB 2017) and added a full flower underneath before sponging some Sweet Sugarplum ink on the Whisper White.

The designer series paper is from the Succulent Garden collection and I added a lace doily, button and linen thread to finish off the top.

Just Like You

I always like to have a few gift card holders on hand just in case I need something quick.  This one is really simple to put together and would work great for kids with the Party Animal designer series paper as the focus. 

I started with a piece of 12" x 4 1/4" of designer series paper and scored it on the long side at 4 and 8".  Then I cut the angle off one of the sides and used tear and tape adhesive to attach it to make the pocket.

Next, I added more tear and tape adhesive around the outside and added my cotton ribbon before decorating the front.

Here't to a Great...

Last week I shared a couple cards where I had punched out a circle and placed something behind it, well, I must have had that on the brain for awhile because here is one more!  I used the same punch - the 2 1/2" circle punch and placed some Sending Love glassine sheets behind it.

The trim on the Pool Party is stamped with the Delicate Details stamp set (SAB 2017) and the sentiment is from Better Together.  I added an In color doily and some Sending love embellishments to complete the card.

Sugarplum Butterfly

I wanted to pair the butterflies in the Falling in Love designer series paper with the butterflies in the Watercolor Wings stamp set and chose to do it with the Custom Tee stamp set and matching T-shirt framelits. 

I added some Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper from the Sale-a-bration glimmer paper packet and some kraft rope trim that I unraveled.
