Hearts a Flutter

Here's a cute Valentine I made with the Hearts a Flutter stamp set.  I love that this set has a coordinating die.  My sentiment is from the set Delightful Dozen.  I added a little heart punched from some Glimmer paper for a little sparkle.  The DSP is from the Spring catalog.  It's called More Amore.  The Pool Party ribbon is one of the freebie items available during Sale-a-Bration.  The scallop edge is die cut with the Large Scallop Edgelit.  My color combo is Pool Party, Primrose Petals and Real Red.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sweets for the Sweet

I pulled out the set Sweets for the Sweet for this card.  I need to use this set more!  These little pinwheels are adorable.  The DSP is a SAB freebie called Sycamore Street.  My color combo is Pool Party, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango and Summer Starfruit.  My sentiment is from the set called Wishes Your Way.  It works perfectly with the pinwheels.  I layered that on a circle and scallop circle punch.  My background panel is embossed with the Argyle folder.  I added a couple brads to finish it off.  Thanks for stopping by!

A Fitting Occasion

I'm loving this SAB DSP!  It's called Sycamore Street.  The colors and patterns are really bold and bright.  For this card I used several of the various patterns for my background.  My color combo is Island Indigo, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry.  My focal image is from the set A Fitting Occasion.  I got this set a couple months ago and finally had a chance to play with it.  Too cute!  I stamped and punched two background labels - Modern Label and Curly Label.  Finally I layered the sentiment and little elephant inside a circle punch.  I love how that came out.  I corner rounded the background squares and added a strip punched with the scallop edge punch.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hearts a Flutter

The "chalkboard" effect is really popular in paper crafting and scrap booking right now.  I decided to try it out on this Valentine card.  I like how this turned out!  It's super easy to recreate.  All you really need is some Basic Black card stock and Whisper White ink.  I made the banner using the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and coordinating die set.  My color combo is Primrose Petals, Pool Party and Basic Black.  The DSP is called More Amore.  The background panel is embossed with the Fancy Fan folder.  My sentiment is from the hostess set Wacky Wishes.  I added some Itty Bitty buttons and Baker's Twine for embellishments.  Thanks for stopping by!

Patterned Occasions

Here's my first project with some new Sale-a-Bration and Spring catalog goodies.  The stamp set I used is called Patterned Occasions.  I love this cute little cupcake.  My color combo is Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango and Summer Starfruit.  The DSP is called Sycamore Street.  It's also a SAB item.  I cut the banners with a new die set from the Spring catalog called Hearts a Flutter.  My background is embossed with the folder Honeycomb.  I used Pool Party Core'dinations card stock and then sanded it off a little.  Finally I added some Baker's Twine to string my banner.  Thanks for stopping by!
