Another Great Year Birthday Card

I really like the large "happy birthday to you" stamp from the stamp set Another Great Year.
It makes for a quick birthday card.
Here I heat embossed it with silver embossing powder on Whisper White cardstock.
The card base is Smokey Slate and I added a little more shine with some Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.

Made a matching envelope using the Envelope Liners framelits die and the
Silver Fancy Foil vellum.

Robot Valentine

I whipped up a couple of these cute Valentine's for my boys yesterday after seeing this VIDEO by Dawn Olchefske.  I didn't have the stamp set for the word bubble so just drew one myself.
Happy Valentine's Day!

A Masculine Valentine's Card

I used the Soho Subway designer series paper as a backdrop for this masculine Valentine card. 

I used dies from the Label Card thinlits die set and the Circle Card thinlits die set along with the Gold Foil sheet for the accents on this card.

Make a Wish Birthday Card

I really like this combination of Blushing Bride and Gold.

I used a piece of Gold Fancy Foil designer vellum over a card base of Blushing Bride.
I heat embossed with gold the "make a wish" from the stamp set Perfect Pennants on Whisper White cardstock then cut out with a Banners Framelit die.  Using the next up size die I cut out a banner from Blushing Bride card stock to layer.  Wrapped some Gold Baker's Twine around the banner top and attached to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Inside I used the large "happy birthday to you" from the stamp set Another Great Year and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

Me & You Valentine Card

I managed to use quite a few items in creating this card.
Here is the list:
Perfect Pennants stamp set
Banners Framelits dies
Hearts Collection Framlits dies
Coastal Cabana 3/8" ruffle stretch ribbon
Tea Lace Paper Doilies
Fresh Prints paper stack
Coastal Cabana, Real Red, and Whisper White card stock
Real Red and Crumb Cake classic ink
Adorning Accents Embossing folder (hearts)
Scallops embossing folder.
I think that is it.
Pretty easy to put together.  I used Multipurpose glue on the back of the heart to attach the ruffled ribbon and I used 2 pieces of ribbon doing half the heart at a time.

Stampin' Class Cards

Here are some cards we made in the last stampin' class.
This Valentine uses some products from the Sale-a-bration - Decorative Dots textured impressions embossing folder, Banner Blast stamp set, and Banner punch.
The greeting is from Delightful Dozen.

Again I used the Decorative Dots embossing folder from Sale-a-bration.
Also used Fresh Prints paper stack, Perfect Pennants stamp set, and the Angled Tag Topper Punch.

Love this last card.  I CASed this card from someone, don't recall where I saw it.  I think the only thing I did different was use a different flower.
This card features the Hardwood background stamp - LOVE IT!
Also used the Gold fancy foil designer vellum, Gold Sequin trim, Banners Framelits dies and Peaceful Petals stamp set.
The greeting is from Six-Sided Sampler.

Get Well Card with Tissue Box

This card features the beautiful Watercolor Wonder designer series paper along with the Peaceful Petals stamp set.
When you open up the card there is a cute pop-up mini tissue box!
To make the "tissue box" cut a piece of paper 2" x 4-1/2", score along the 4-/2" side at 1", 2", 3", and 4".  You then need to create a hole for the tissue to come out...I used a framelit from the Chalk Talk framelits set.  This worked great. See photo below for how this looks before folding.  Take a small piece of tissue and pull up through the slit, attach the 1/2" flap to create a rectangular box and then adhere into the inside of card at the fold.
