I re-created this card from mylovelyinspirations.com as well. I just couldn’t help it. It was so pretty. This features the free in-color paper pack as a hostess gift. I used the Blushing Bride color. This also uses the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and some of SU jewels. Pink and Grey such a nice color combination. The Scallop Trim Border Punch and some Victoria Lace with an Antique Brad finish this off nicely. The sentiment also comes from a hostess level 1 set called “Because I Care”. You could get the paper and the stamp set free for hostessing a workshop. Call and schedule one with me today. The other stamp set is the Nature’s Walk. With the pink flowers this looks so soft and feminine.
Check back tomorrow. I have a few more things I have created using my Nature’s Walk Stamp set. This will go on record as a week with a lot to be seen here. A good week-end of stamping does allow me to have something to share.
I love this stamp set. I wish I had not waited until late March to get it but at least I did it. The Botanical Gazette paper is so much fun. This paper and stamp set works great for frilly cards but you could really make it work for masculine cards as well. Thank you’s, Spring, Summer, Birthday — whatever. Love, Love, Love it.
Today I want to feature the bird. I saw this idea at mylovelyinspirations.com For this one I use the Concord Crush DSP paper pack that you can get for free when you host a workshop and have $150.00 in sales. This is a level one hostess gift and come in all the new in-colors. The sentiment is from the Elements of Style Stamp set. Then I used the Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon and popped the bird and the sentiment up with dimensionals. The Sentiment is punched with the Modern Label punch. Punched one in Concord Crush, cut it in half and glued one half to each end of the sentiment that was punched out on Very Vanilla CS. This is a fun way to accent this little punch. Three little brads also added just the right touch to the corner. The bird is also stamped in the Concord Crush. If you are into purple, this fits the bill.
The next color combination was Rose Red and Pumpkin pie with the Sweet and Sour Specialty DSP. The Rose Red Seam Binding ribbon was used here. This also made a bright and cheery card.
I could have gone on forever and made one in every color but there are other fun things too. This last one I will show you I used the Botanical Gazette DSP and used some Sticky strip to create a scrunched ribbon effect with the Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon. I also sponged the edges of the DSP with Not Quite So Navy and layered it on Not Quite So Navy Card Stock. I used three little silver brads and that seemed to coordinate nicely.
What I love about this paper is the little birds. Just like the large stamp only smaller. What could be more fun?
Again, if you are interested in this stamp set, don’t wait, get it soon before the end of April. If you have any questions about making these cards, just ask.
Create something beautiful yourself.
When Nicole saw my little Thank you cards she was inspired to create something similar. She grabbed my new Eat Chocolate stamp set and made some really fun cards. She decided to use the retired color of Close to Cocoa but crumb cake or chocolate chip would work just as nice. She even found my retired Close to Cocoa retired DSP matching paper which made it even more fun. She stamped each of the stamps on Very Vanilla Card Stock. The cards measure 3″ by 6″ and folded in half to make them 3″ X 3″. The DSP is cut at 2 3/4″ X 2 3/4″.
She use the for you out of my Vintage Vogue stamp set and use the Very Vanilla Seam binding ribbon. If you decide to create something similar and don’t understand my directions for the folder from yesterdays entry, e-mail me and I will try to make it more clear for you.
Any way here is what her final results were:
She did not spend a lot of time fussing over each of these like I would have, hers are very simple but the result was fabulous. She sponged the edge of her DSP just for fun. She used the Label punch, the 2″ X 1 3/8 Large Oval, and cut the last one with the paper cutter.
This stamp set is only available until the end of April and then I am sure it will be gone. If you want one get a hold of me and I will help you get it or order it through my on-line store.
I saw this idea created by another demonstrator and now cannot remember where. I changed it slightly and added my own touch. The cards are little 3 X 3 cards. You cut Very Vanilla CS into 3″ X 6″ and fold in half. I used a different pattern from the DSP Botanical Gazette paper pack for each one cut at 2 3/4″ X 2 3/4″ and stamped the coordinating image on the card itself. I sponged the coordinating color around the edges of the paper and used my Early Espresso to stamp the image and sponge the sentiment that I punched out using my label punch and the 1 3/8″ X 5/8″ oval punch. I used my bone folder to rough the edge of my punched sentiment a little to make it stand out on the card.
Then I created a little mini folder to hold the cards by taking a 7″ X 7″ coordinating paper, scoring it at 3.5″ each direction (down the center each way) and then folding it and cutting two of the corners off from my score lines. Then I stamped the the flower image along the inside and the outside.
Then lastly I took my Label punch and used a retired SU Thank you I have had for many years to create my sentiment on the front folder and some of the beautiful seam binding ribbon to create a tie. This ribbon is so soft and it creates some really nice bows. I hope it does not retire but gets included in the new catalog that comes out in July. However, you can still purchase it until the end of April and if you really want some, I suggest you don’t wait in case it becomes unavailable for purchase. I think I will get a few more rolls of it, especially the very vanilla as it goes with so many things.

I have had a lot of fun this past weekend making cards. The best part about it was stamping with my Mother Karen and my daughter Nicole. Making something beautiful and fun with your hands and doing it with those you love - What could be better. I want to show you the cards my daughter created today. She is 14 and really getting good at this card making thing.
This one is using my Vintage Vogue stamp set, some of the free paper we earned for purchases during Sale-a-brations and some 1/2 pearls from the retired pretties kit. Very simple and cute. Love it.
Next she created a butterfly card using the Beautiful wings embosslit folder. This is such a fun thing to own. I just purchased it a month ago and I am finding all kinds of projects to use it on. I love it.
Last but not least she used a free set she chose for us call “So Happy Together”. She used my Boho Blossom punch and cut some DSP paper out and some out of Pretty in Pink. She also used the flower stamp and cut them out on the Daffodil Delight paper. Then she stamped the cute little partridges and added them. So much fun.
Tomorrow I will start to show you the fun things I have been creating. I purchased the Nature’s Walk Stamp set and the matching Designer Paper. I have just had so much fun with it and came up with some really fun things. Until then — Happy stamping!
