Happy Celebrations

 So, here we are again! Today I am sharing with you a fun and quick card that I did at the same workshops this week- I had TWO (2) WORKSHOPS IN ONE WEEK! Yay! Anyway, I started with some fun, fresh colors. I used Watermelon Wonder as a base and then layered Peekaboo Peach on top of that. To achieve this technique, I ran the Whisper White through the Big Shot using the Celebrations Duo (142760) embossing folder with the word Celebration on Whisper White card stock, and then the key to this technique is to LEAVE THE PAPER ON THE FOLDER and then use the two dot stamps from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and stamp directly onto the paper.
I used the larger dot with Watermelon Wonder and then the smaller one in Peekaboo Peach and Crushed Curry.  Then I wrapped it twice with the Crushed Curry Baker's Twine and tied a bow. Then I stamped out the words from the same stamp set in Whisper White ink onto Dapper Denim cardstock and trimmed the ends and popped it up with Dimensionals.
Well, I'm off for dental appointments and checkups. Have a wonderful Friday!

Window Box Bundle~

 Good Thursday everyone! Again, where has this week gone? Wasn't it just Monday? Anyway, I had a wonderful workshop this past weekend with wonderful ladies. My hostess asked me if I could show this adorable Window Box bundle. And of course, I needed to get it out and play with it, actually, more like justifying my purchase-lol. So, I cut it out using Calypso Coral card stock (you need two pieces to make the box as intended), and then ran one through using the pretty detailed die that also comes in the set, through the top piece and assembled the box as directed.
 Then I pulled out my Bold Butterflies die and cut the butterfly from the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP stack (142744) from the Occasions Catalog and used my Mono Multi glue to adhere it. I added some pearls to make it pop. For the banner, I used the little die inside the bundle to make this 3D. It cuts and scores it for you! And then from the coordinating stamp set, Window Shopping (143265) I stamped out the "friend" in Crushed Curry onto Whisper White.
 And then of course, I used FREE ribbon from the Salebration selections! LOVE this ribbon! It is so soft and easy to tie.  I made this box into a tea light decoration. I sold tons!
 So, I wanted to showcase the fact that all of our bundles that are 3D boxes, bags etc. the stamps can be used for cards as well. So, here are a couple of cards that I made from the same stamp set and DSP stack. Trying to show them that they can make more than just what something is intended for so that their money goes further. The first card, above, is using the same stamp set, dies, DSP and Bold Butterflies die sets.
 This one I cut the candles directly out of the front of the card and put a piece of the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP behind it and then another down underneath it on the front of the card. I used the Happy Birthday from the same stamp as well. (There's that FREE ribbon again!)
Well, I have my grandson today, so I am going to be away from my computer for a bit. Have a super Thursday!
