A Cute Flower Treat

Just dropping a quick note to share a sneak peek of a cute treat I did for a friend. I'm creating a Sweet Treat Gift Set for her and this fun flower will be included.

I used the SU! Stamp Sets: Perfect Punches (W#117022 - C#120516) and Itty Bitty Bits (W#117056 - C#120060) along with the Curly Label Punch (#119851) for the tag stamping the sentiment of "My Friend" in Certainly Celery Classic Ink (#105217) and the accent flower in Daffodil Delight Classic Ink (#119667) on Whisper White Cardstock (#100730). It was attached to the filled 1"x 8" cello bag (#124134) with the 1/4" Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon (#109031).

The Daisy was created using the Big Shot (#113439), Daisies #2 Die (#114520) and Daffodil Delight Cardstock (#119683). Two sets of flower layers were created and stacked then curled to form the flower. A Stampin' Jewel Rhinestone (#119246) was added to the center for additional detail.

What can you make for a special friend today? Share your love of creativity and...
... make it an {INK}redible Day!

A Grateful Heart

What truth is shared in this great sentiment! A grateful heart is truly necessary for our happiness...and what better way to share your gratitude than to share this card with a good friend.

Using the stamp sets Awash with Flowers(W#117062 C@120549) and Pursuit of Happiness (W#121907 C#121970) on Whisper White Cardstock, Classic Inks in Colors: Lucky Limeade (#122935), Calypso Coral (#122939) and Daffodil Delight (#119667) created cheery flowers, while Basic Black (#101179) was used to stamp the sentiment. Once created, the top layer of Whisper White (#100730) was then adhered with SNAIL Adhesive to the layers of Daffodil Delight Cardstock (#119683) and the Lucky Limeade (#122926) card foundation. The small additional colorful accents were created with the InColor Designer Series Papers (#122384 - Calypso Coral Dots Pattern) and small scraps of Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade.

Take 15 minutes to create a special way to express your gratitude today and make it an {INK}redouble Day!

Songbird's Hello

Spring mornings bring beautiful bird songs and this card shares the same cheery feeling. Sale-A-Bration is still going on and you have until March 31st to earn FREE goodies from the 2012 Sale-A-Bration catalog. If you don't have a copy you can click on the catalog link on the left bar of my bog to see it.

Using the Stamp Set Swirls & Curls Verses (a previous hostess set) and stamping with the Calypso Coral Classic Ink Pad on the the Very Vanilla Cardstock; this cute card begins to form. Adding a layer of Pool Party Cardstock embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and an additional layer of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper embossed with the Finial Press Embossing Folder adds just a hint of fun detail. Each of these layers was then cut with a gradating size of the Framelits Label Collection to create the layers. Adding these layers to the Soft Suede Cardstock that was embossed with the Lattice Embosssing Folder created this fun look. 1/8" Organdy Ribbon in Calypso Coral was used from the Brads and Ribbon Pack in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog between the top and middle framelit and a soft bow was tied on the left of the card. Adding pearls to the bottom of the top framelit and using the Pool Party Stampin' Write Marker to add color to the songbird gave it the final touch. Once formed the card layers were added to a Very Vanilla card foundation and it was ready to mail to a friend.

Enjoy your beatiful Spring morning and make it an {INK}redible Day!
