Messages For Mom


I got some more new SU product from the Occasions Mini.  
I am currently enjoying the Messages For Mom Set (page 29).   It is so 
pleasant and very flexible in it's use.

The Apricot and Cameo Coral card stock components were
run through the Big Shot Finial Press Embossing Folder.
The Top Note Die was used to cut out a panel and I then cut 
that piece down on my cutter.   I stamped the flower image on
Lavender Lace card stock which I then cut out with the Extra Large 
Fancy Flower Punch (page 10).   The flower was textured by running it through the
Big Shot Perfect Polka Dots Folder.   The button in the center was 
pressed into Apricot Craft Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing 
Powder, to change it's color to coordinate with the card base.

The sentiment was stamped and then punched out with the Modern
Punch.   Lastly, Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon was added to complete the card.

So are you enjoying our big snow??

Hearts Valentine


This is another card that incorporates the Big Shot Scalloped Heart 
of Hearts Die.  I used Christmas DP,  cut out with the Full Heart Punch, 
layered on top of Whisper White embossed hearts,
  The use of a Perfect Plum card base,
 run through the Final Press Embossing Folder completes
the look.

Stay safe in the upcoming weather!

I just had to post this photo on my blog.
This is the Caution put on the SU boxes!  Yes, I think it's about
time Stampin'Up! warned us about the dangers of getting 
overly excited when we get new products!!

Sweet Pea Butterfly Crossover

I am so loving the Sweet Pea Paper Pack.  The colors just go 
together soooooo well!

This card has no stamping, except for the inside.  
The Brushed Gold butterfly on the belly band was produced with the 
Big Shot Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.  A Vintage Brad was used 
to attach the butterfly to a Taken with Teal band that had
been embossed with Iridescent Ice EP.

This card has several flaps, making it more interesting from
a design stand point.  I hope to make this card with you
at an upcoming event!
