Another Simple Card

Here's a card I made with the stamp set Pocket Silhouettes and Heard from the Heart. I stamped them in Kiwi Kiss and punched them out with the Wide Oval punch. I then punched out wide ovals in Kiwi Kiss and offset them on the punched out flowers. The Kiwi Kiss ribbon is glued to the Whisper White cardstock and then trimmed on the edges. The flowers are popped with dimensionals (they don't stick well to the ribbon, so make sure they are on the top and bottom of the flowers. The sentiment was also stamped in Kiwi Kiss. I scalloped the bottom of the Whisper White. I cut the Whisper White 5 1/4 by 4 1/4 so it would have just a little of the Kiwi Kiss showing after you punched it with the scallop punch. I didn't care for the look if you cut it for a regular card front.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello All!

I'm showing you all a card I made for a swap for Sale-A-Bration, using the stamp set, Polka Dot Punches. I LOVE bright colors, so I HAD to use Pacific Point in this card somewhere. The other colors came along kicking and screaming. LOL

I stamped the five point flower in Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red and punched it and it's corresponding color. I attached them together with a little adhesive and then a black brad. I popped them with dimensionals. I used black grosgrain ribbon on the middle piece, tied into a knot (I really seem to get getting away from the full tied bows). :-D

The sentiment is from Thank You Kindly. I like this layout because you can make it any type of sentiment you want.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Weekend is Almost Over . . .

Don't you just hate it when your weekend flies by? That's what has happened to me this weekend. Yesterday, I looked up and it was 2:30! Where does the time go?

Okay, on to fun stuff. Here's a card we did at a recent class. It's a CASE of a card in the catalog on page 147. I really loved the softness of the shell (you have to stamp off with the Baja Breeze) and then stamped the sentiment with Close to Cocoa. The designer paper is Close to Cocoa. This card is seriously easy if you need a quick birthday card.

Stamps: Seaside and On Your Birthday
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa; Close to Cocoa designer series paper
Ink: Baja Breeze and Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, ticket corner punch.

Here's another card we did at the same class. We used the Love You Much stamp set. Using an Xacto knife, I slit under the birds' wings and then inserted the middle size heart from the Heart to Heart punch and glued it down. The background is the hearts in the Love You Much set and the Happy Valentine's Day is from Holidays & Wishes. I popped the focal piece and sentiment with dimensionals and added the small punched hearts.
