A Sunny Hello!

 Hello! Happy Saturday! This card is so appropriate for today, it's actually SUNNY! This is a card from last weekend's workshop.  I am in love with the Sunburst Framelit and the stamp set Botanicals For You! It is such a simple card and so bright and cheery.   I layered up a piece of Brights DSP Patterns Paper Stack(the yellow lines) onto a piece of the Whisper White cardstock (if you haven't tried the heavier one yet, GO GET SOME- we sell it now and it is so sturdy!) I ran the framelit through the Big Shot using Daffodil Delight card stock and then adhered it down to the striped paper.
I stamped out the Hello and the sunburst  in Daffodil Delight ink onto the heavy Whisper White and used Basic Black archival Ink and stampe the "my friend". I punched it out using the 2 1/2" Circle punch.  I used the Tree Builder Punch to punch out some clouds from Vellum Card Stock and adhered Dimensionals to the back of the circle and used that to adhere the clouds also so that you couldn't see the adhesive through the vellum.  I added a Brights Button to the sunburst for a bit of color.  Right now, you can get this Botanicals for You stamp set for FREE with a qualifying order. Contact me for details!
Have a super Saturday! Thanks for stopping in!

Party Wishes for a SPECIAL LADY!

 Eek! We are so close to being THROUGH January! HALLELUIAH! But, for the positive side of January, it was a month with some pretty special birthdays! And this was a birthday card I sent to a super special lady who changed my life in May 2015.  I got to get out my Ocassions Min product and just PLAY! It was a great feeling! So here I used SEVERAL new products to make her card. I used Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo  and Whisper White cardstocks, Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper (TO DIE FOR GORGEOUS!) , It's My Party DSP Stack, ( I will list these all at the end of this post), Banner Triple Punch, Tree Builder Punch (for itty bitty flowers on cake), Basic Pearls, Wink of Stella(shimmer on the inside of card), Star Embossing Folder and Vanilla Seam Binding.
 I just had to add some personal touches to this sweet cake, although it's awesome by itself, it's the detail that is needed.  This set comes with some neat stamps that you can actually stamp directly on the front of the cake too.
 Here is some of the Designer Series Paper that I used the Triple Banner Punch on to "flag" the ends.
And for the INSIDE, I used the new Party Pop Up Thinlets Die. It is SUPER DUPER EASY to use! I randomly stamped little ballons in Melon Mambo.  I colored the pop up part with Wink of Stella to add some shimmer. ( Note that it's kind of messed up a bit, as it was the first time I used it and I squeezed a bit too hard..-lol!) Fun Stuff!
So, I am hoping she's received this card by now, as I am going to post in several places that she might see. I hope you have a super weekend, we are expected to have temperatures in the high 50's in IOWA IN JANUARY! I'm sure there is something coming in behind it in the way of SNOW! Oh well, I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy when it gets here..
