Flower Fancy Favor

Here is another "box" using the Fancy Favor die. This time I attached a flower to it that I made with the Circle Scallop punch. I've seen these flowers on numerous blogs but I am not quite sure where I found the tutorial. I always like to give credit where it is due but I truly don't remember where I found this. The paper that I used can't be purchased after today but truly it would look cute with any paper. Stampin' Ups paper is two sided so that makes it very easy to get different looks. I love my Big Shot!

Butterfly Box

I made this little "box" several weeks ago using the Bigz XL Fancy Favor die and the Big Shot. Recognize the stamp set? Yes, it is the Watercolor Trio again. I used Very Vanilla and Bashful blue cardstock. Again I used my Stampin' Write markers in Bashful Blue and Old Olive.

I found this project at Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition. I plan to make some 3x3 cards to put inside. It would make a great gift for someone!
Don't forget that TODAY IS THE LAST DAY

Watercolor Trio

Today's card was made with a set from the Summer Mini catalog called Watercolor Trio. It is so easy to make a card that is beautiful with this set. In person it really is very pretty. I used my Stampin' Write markers in Old Olive, Rose Red and Elegant Eggplant. After coloring the stamp with the markers, I huffed on them and then stamped. I have the clear mount set which it made it easy to see exactly where I wanted to stamp. I was able to make the card very quickly. When you use the markers, each card will turn out differently and be unique! I got my inspiration for this card and the card I will post tomorrow from Pennie McCallum. You can see her card here.

Only three more days to get any retiring items in the big catalog! All of the designer papers will be saying goodbye, selected accessories and many of the stamp sets. If you haven't seen this lists, you can find them on the right hand side of my blog.

Kaleidoscope Flowers

I tend to make cards with many layers but tried to simplify the process with this card. I've tried to show that you can make a card with just a few supplies.

All of the paper I used is retiring at the end of the month. Unfortunately the cardstock has sold out but the Kaleidoscope Designer Series paper is still available. I used a product for the first time with this card called Build a Brad. With this product you can make your own brad! Using my 1/2" circle punch I took the center of another flower on a scrap of Kaleidoscope and built a brad with it! Can't wait to try it with other papers and stamps!

Feel free to leave a comment or question! I am off to do some stamping!

Stamp Set: Watercolor Trio

Paper: Summer Sun and Pink Passion cardstock, Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper

Ink: Pink Passion

Accessories: Build a Brad (page 179 in the catalog), Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8 " Circle punch, 1/2" Circle punch, Organza Whisper White ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper piercer and mat

Chocolate Box

I made this cute little box using the Bigz XL Matchbox die with the Big Shot. The die also comes with three tags and that is what I used on my box (it is cut out of Rose Red). The paper is Island Oasis from the Summer Mini. I cut small strips of paper and covered the chocolate with it. It is a very easy box to put together and there are so many different ways to decorate the top. I saw a recent post from a fellow blogger who added a little easel card to the top. I will have to give that a try! Thanks for stopping by. If you would like to place an order, click the button on the right or feel free to email me!

Stamps: Short and Sweet

Ink: Rose Red Classic ink

Paper: Island Oasis DSP, Rose Red and Whisper White cardstock

Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot, Bigz XL Matchbox die, Large Oval punch

Cottage Wall Fancy Folds

Here is another card using the the Bigz XL Fancy Folds die. It quickly makes a very pretty card! This time I used Cottage Wall DSP on Old Olive cardstock. I used the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. I haven't used this embossing folder in some time but it really does give a beautiful effect. I need to start using it more! For my sentiment I punched out Rich Razzleberry cardstock with the Modern Label punch and then stamped my sentiment using the same punch but in Old Olive. I just cut the Rich Razzleberry punch in half and it gives the illusion that it is longer!

Did you know that ALL of our papers are retiring in the big catalog?? It will be hard to say goodbye to some of my favorites but that means that the new catalog will have all NEW paper. I can't wait to see what will be available! Some of the retiring paper is on sale, such as the one I used in today's card! If you would like to see which papers are on sale, look on the right side of my blog under promotions and click the link called Accessories. If you would like to place an order you can simply click the Order Now button at the top of my blog or email me directly and I will take care of it for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Island Oasis Flower

This is a card I made using the Big Shot and the Bigz XL Flower Folds die. It makes four different sized flowers. I didn't use the largest one on this card. I also used the new Designer Series paper called Island Oasis which is now in the Summer Mini. For the textured design I used the Square Lattice embossing folder which is also used with Big Shot (this can also be found in the Summer Mini catalog). I made this for my Big Shot Club today. I have a group of women who are buying the Big Shot on the four month plan and they get four free classes from me! Today we are going to make this card along with some other goodies which I will show you in the next few days. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
