SO THANKFUL

 
I am thankful to the dozens of new viewers who chose to visit my blog this past month and also to those who have chosen to participate in the new PAPER PUMPKIN MONTHLY CRAFT CLUB. Not only am I sending them a cool thank you gift/crafting item, but I created a card to let them know how much I appreciate them.
 The inside is blank so I can write a special personal message to each and every one of my new wonderful customers.
 
 
 
This is an elegant, but simple card using Certainly Celery, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight card stocks; Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper; the Vintage Verses Stamp Set  offered during Sale-A-Bration and my new favorite punch, the Bitty Butterfly, offered in the Spring catalog. The card is embellished with those fun Basic Rhinestone Jewels, and Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon. The Vintage Faceted Designer Button is tied with White Bakers twine, which I rolled over my Daffodil Delight classic stampin’ pad to tint it a little.
  
Drop me a line at: [email protected] for a list of the supplies, as well as sizes and assembly directions.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

SWEET STITCHES

SWEET STITCHES !!!!

Here’s a cute little sundress made with Stampin’ Up! fabric and ribbon trim I had here on hand.  I love how the patterns in the package complement each other.  There are so many other patterns available and the cost for a package of extra wide fat quarters with (3) coordinated designs is unbelievably reasonable.  KUDOS to the site below for posting ideas and free sewing patterns, including step by step instructions for beginners!

TEA FOR TWO ANYONE?

 
 
Stampin’ Up! has been making a difference for 25 years and began sharing their anniversary celebration with all of us in the 2013 Spring catalog.  It is just full of new products, awesome ideas and super yummy colors.
 
 
Here’s a card I created with some of those items, using 3/8″ Striped Melon Mambo Organdy Ribbon; Tea for Two Designer Series paper and various punches; the Vine Street embossing folder; the Pretty Petites stamp set, and some pearls.

 

I love white on white.  The Whisper White top layer is embossed, then attached to the Whisper White card stock base. The flower was punched in 3 different sized layers and stacked  together with a dimensional and a pearl on top.  The entire embellishment is attached to gorgeous Melon Mambo organdy ribbon, cut in two different lengths. 
The sentiments are stamped in Certainly Celery and Marina Mist; punched out and attached together with a little glue.  I punched a hole in the top one, attached a tiny pearl and dangled them under the flower, using Natural Linen Thread.
 
The inside is simple, one large sentiment from a soon-to-be released stamp set, “Just Thinking” in Marina Mist ink.
 
 I think it says it all.
 
You can order the supplies for this card on my link below, and try making one for yourself.  It was fun and super easy.  If you need help, drop a line and I’ll send you step by step instructions.
