Love You

Another clean and simple card, it doesn't have to be just for Valentine's  Day.  It could be an anniversary card or just to let someone know you love them.  The "love" is from Stampin' Up's Sunshine Wishes die set.  I did cut it three times, adhering them together to  give the card a little dimension.  The other hearts were cut from miscellaneous dies and punches.

As I was sitting in my office yesterday afternoon, UPS delivered my Stampin' Up order.  The butterfly paper that you can get for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration is so pretty.  One side of each of the pages are black and white prints~~love it!  Have a great day!

Cute & Simple Valentine

It is turning into Valentine Week on my blog, starting with favors and going into cards.  Today's card is clean and simple.  The heart balloon was cut using Lawn Fawn's Party Balloons die set.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's Scrumptious Occasions stamp set.  (I love the font in this stamp set.)  I used Stampin' Up's Crumb Cake cardstock for the card base and top layer.  The red hearts and black cardstock layer really pop against the Crumb Cake. This card is cute and simple!  Have a great day and find yourself a little stampin' time.

Tag Nugget Holder

Just when I think I found the cutest Valentine favor~~Lawn Fawn's Heart Treat Box~~My Favorite Things releases their new Treat Tag die set and Nugget, Label Treat Holder die set.   Hershey's Chocolate Nuggets fit inside the pouches that are sold separately. The Tag and two topper dies are included in the Treat Tag set.

Included in the Nugget, Label Treat Holder set are: a die to cut the opening in the tag for the pouch;  a die for the label to wrap around the nugget; a die for the border around the pouch;  and a die that will perforate an opening in the back of the tag.  I can see many cute things being made with this set.  Have a great day!

Little Heart Boxes

When Lawn Fawn introduced their Heart Treat Box die set,  I ordered it the day it was released.  Actually, I ordered it off Amazon for less than I would have spent at Lawn Fawn.  That doesn't happen very often, especially with new stamping products.  Yesterday was Cricut Sunday and I made these favors for the girls.  I used retired Stampin' Up Valentine paper for the hearts on the top of the box and a retired punch for the little hearts on the sides of the boxes.  These are just adorable!  Have a great day!

Snowflake Ribbon

My friend, Cherie, is celebrating her birthday this weekend and this is her birthday card.  The Snowflake Ribbon is a die by Memory Box; the snowflakes by Lawn Fawn; and "happy" is from My Favorite Things.  I originally made this card on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  Unfortunately, when I heat embossed the word "birthday" in white it was much too light.  So, I redid the card using Coastal Cabana cardstock.  The snowflakes and Snowflake Ribbon were cut on Shimmery White cardstock.  The heat embossed birthday is much better, but still not bright enough.  I am thinking that I should just invest in new white embossing powder. Happy birthday, Cherie!  Enjoy your day!  Have a great weekend everyone!

Cupcake Day

It is a cupcake kind of day~~and this card is the perfect way to send birthday greetings to someone.  The images are part of My Favorite Things' Cupcake Day stamp set. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set.  This little girl image was stamped with black Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I used Lawn Fawn's Fancy Scallop Rectangle dies for the white layers of cardstock.  These images from My Favorite Things are so cute.  Have a great day!

Birthday Candles

Today's card was made with the Birthday Candles die from My Favorite Things and my little hand-held star punch.  I had to try the new Distress Oxide inks I received for Christmas so on white cardstock I sponged yellow and blue Distress inks.  I then cut the candles.  The candles are one die and the flames another.  I used plain yellow cardstock for the flames and brushed the flames with Wink of Stella.  Everything was glued to a black piece of cardstock.  That was layered on to yellow and green cardstock and a black card base.   For the inside of the card.  I used the Big Birthday Sentiments stamp set from MFT Stamps.  Have a great day and find yourself a little stampin' time!
