Apothecary Art Sympathy

I haven't had a chance to play with the new Labels Framelits very much.  I decided to get them out tonight.  I really like the shape of this set of labels.  It coordinates with the Apothecary Art set.  I colored the flower wreath with reinkers and an aquapainter.  My DSP is called Everyday Enchantment.  It's one of the free choices during this year's SAB promotion.  My color combo is Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade.  I added a strip punched with the scallop ribbon punch and layered some organdy ribbon on top.  The ribbon is also a SAB choice this year.  Thanks for stopping by!

Pennant Parade Valentine

Sometimes I really love the look of a mostly white card.  It's just so crisp and clean.  For this card I used Pennant Parade for my focal point.  I punched the pennants with the coordinating punch and popped them up on some dimensionals.  I added a couple little hearts cut with the Fashionable Hearts die.  I used a little Baker's Twine at the corners to string up my pennants.  My sentiment is from the set Short and Sweet.  My color combo is Real Red and Pretty in Pink.  Thanks for stopping by!

Candy Conversations

I'm really enjoying making Valentine's this year!  There are so many great products in the Occasions mini.  For this card I used the single stamp called Candy Conversations.  I colored directly on the stamp with my markers.  My color combo is Tangerine Tango, Real Red and Regal Rose.  I added a scallop border cut with my Tasteful Trim die.  I embellished the border with several hearts cut with the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit and a few pearls.  My card base is embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  Finally I added a strip punched with the scallop ribbon punch.  Thanks for stopping by!

Fashionable Hearts Valentine

Sorry I've been absent for over a week!  It's just been one of those months.  I also haven't had a whole lot of time to stamp but I'm hoping to get some good quality me time in this weekend!  I made another Valentine with the Fashionable Heart embosslit.  I just can't get enough of these cute little hearts!  My color combo is Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Blushing Bride and Chocolate Chip.  My sentiment is from a retired set called Holidays and Wishes.  I corner rounded my card base a popped up a couple hearts here and there.  Thanks for stopping by!

Another Quick Valentine

I've been on a Valentine kick this last week.  Here's another quick and easy one.  The hearts are from the set Take It To Heart from the Occasions mini.  I punched those with the small heart punch.  I went with a rainbow palette for this - Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point and Old Olive.  My sentiment is from the single stamp, Candy Conversions, also from the mini.  I added a trim piece punched with the scallop border punch.  Finally I embossed the bottom edge of the card with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  I think the new edge embossing folder with the little hearts would be perfect here.  Unfortunately, I don't have it yet!!  It's next on my wish list for sure.  Thanks for stopping by!

CAS Valentine

Here's a quick, cute valentine I made with the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslit.  I finally sat down and played with this new die a little bit over the weekend.  I love it!  It makes really cute chubby little hearts.  So much fun!  For this card I used Island Indigo, Pool Party, Riding Hood Red and Blushing Bride.  I popped the hearts up on some dimensionals.  My sentiment is from a retired set called Something to Celebrate.  That's it!  Thanks for stopping by.

Fresh Vintage with Everyday Enchantment

I made another card with some Sale-a-Bration sneak peeks.  For this project I used the new stamp set called Fresh Vintage.  I was happily surprised to find the flower stamp from this set coordinates with the Blossom Bouquet punch.  It's a little tricky to line it up because this is a triple layer punch.  But in the end it turned out great.  My DSP is also a SAB item called Everyday Enchantment.  I love the colors in this pack.  For this card I used Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral.  My sentiment is from the set Perfect Words.  I die cut this with one of the new label Framelits.  My background piece is embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  I also added a new designer brad to finish it off.  Thanks for stopping by!
