Good Morning Fellow Stampers!
Howdy Do!! LOL It's Thursday, and frankly I'm tired this week. So I had planned on sharing Paper Pumpkin today; but I was too tired to really do what I wanted to do, so we're going to back-burner that until next week, and I'm going to showcase my "huge" project I spent all day this past Sunday on -- another round of Thank You notes that I desperately needed and had a ball putting together. I did these a little bit differently than the batch the other week. This time I created 4 different designs and made 3 cards of each design. So it was a little less "assembly-line" and a little more painstaking in the details. I love how these turned out!!
All of these are the little notecard size cards I love to make; and even more fun . . . I'm showcasing the brand new Very Vanilla notecards and envelopes set that you will be seeing in the new Annual Catalog!! I love having these in Very Vanilla now!!
There are some really wonderful products showcases in this card design ~
The Swirly Scribbles Thinlits make a great background for the Succulent framelit flower; and the sentiment from the Love Sparkles stamp set is the perfect compliment (I really love this stamp set in the Spring Occasions catalog; give it another look on page 53).
Enamel dots and Wink of Stella finish off this card with style!!
Can you see all the sparkle on my flower petals??
All of today's card sets feature the fabulous Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper is so fun and beautiful!! It will be gone by the end of May -- snap up a pack today!!
On this card, I also featured the soon retiring Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape - what a quick and easy "pop accent" to this card !
The Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Squares Framelits work together perfectly to make my little "window" and make a nice background for the Sunshine Wishes flower stem in Peekaboo Peach. Like that Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon bow? It will be gone by the end of May too!! So don't miss out!!
I found the perfect little "thank you" sentiment tucked in the That's the Tag stamp set. You might want to take another look at that adorable little set and matching framelits. It too will be gone by the end of May! Some of these are sleepers that are getting missed I think!!
This fun card was designed for my recent blog candy winners and others I sent gifts to. How fun is this!!
I used the Balloon Bouquet punch and some more paper from the Playful Palette collection.
Another sentiment from that great Sparkle Love stamp set, some sequins and a baker's twine bow!
What more could you ask for!! ?? LOL
Something you may have noticed on the previous cards - and you'll see again on the next - I used an easy technique to attach elements together - my fabulous little Handheld Stapler.
The sad thing about that is our Handheld Stapler is long gone! If you were lucky enough to get one, be sure to use this tool! It's fabulous!!
Now here's a sweet card that I hope my recipients will love!
Softly done up in pink and ivory, the heart is another wonderful die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.
The background is embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF.
You can see how I attached the heart with the stapler to the background here; and tied a piece of Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon around the heart for a fun added embellishment.
The banner is cut with the Duet Banner Punch, and the sentiment on this set is from the Thoughtful Banners set. Some Blushing Bride Sequins and some Pearls - and this card is complete!
I had a lot of fun creating these, and I hope my recipients will enjoy receiving them. I also hope you feel inspired today and are ready to head to your craft spaces. You can easily pick up any of the supplies for these designs in my Online Store - and most everything I showcased today is available (not backordered or discontinued), so get yourself some goodies today!!
Until Next Time . . .
