Love You to Pieces

6 Jul

Just wanted to share a card I made with the new Love You to Pieces Bundle.  I think I’m just getting started with this great set and matching framelits.  To create the puzzle background all I had to do was use the framelit and the embossing pads….love these!  This is card we’ll be doing at next week’s Bundle-up Class, so if you’re not registered, there’s still time!

Love you to Pieces

Best Birds Card

3 Aug

I’m normally not a bird fan…in fact there have been a few bird stamps that have freaked me out!  But, I love this Best Birds Set!


And what’s even better….it has matching framelits.  No fussy cutting! (You’re welcome!)


Today over on SSINKspiration the designers are featuring Sympathy cards.  I thought this card would make a great sympathy card.


To color the bird I used my aquapainters and ink in the lid of the stamp pad.  For the background, I used the woodland embossing folder inked with crumb cake and just closed the crumb cake card stock inside.  I didn’t emboss it.

Rose Wonder Catalog Bundle

7 Apr

Today on SSINKspiration the designers are featuring Occasions Catalog Bundles.  I must say the Rose Wonder stamp set and the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies make up one of my all-time favorite bundles!

Rose Wonder Bundle

Both of the cards I’m sharing today are sympathy cards.  While these are my least favorite to make, unfortunately I often find that I’m in need of these.   Of course both of these cards could be used for other occasions if different sayings were used.  This first card couldn’t be simpler.  Just stamp the frame and saying, then cut out the flower and frame.  I used dimensionals to mount the saying.20160406_192948With this next card, I cut out the flower 3 times…one time in black, one time in melon mambo,  and one time in pink pirouette.  To get the leaves, I actually stamped the flower with leaves from the set and then cut them out.  To put the card together, I attached the leaves tot he black frame then glued the black frame down and pieced in the various pink pieces.  The saying is embossed in black.

Friday Favorite – Mini Treat Bag Thinlits

25 Mar

Today over on the SSInkspiration Blog, the Designers are showcasing some of their favorites.  Today, i’m featuring the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  There’s lots you can do with these, but I recently found out the bag is a perfect size for a packet of seeds!


To create today’s project, I also used a circle framelit (but you could use a punch) and the stamp set Petite Petals along with the leaves from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.  Here’s the finished project.

Curvy Keepsakes Bunny

1 Mar

I know there’s many versions of the Curvy Keepsakes box out there, but I just love the bunny!  He/She’s not hard to make but is sure to put a smile on someone’s face this Easter!

The ears and feet are made from the Oval Framelits (2nd smallest one) and the large oval punch.  Below is how I attached the ears.  I found it best to fold the ears with a small diagonal crease at one end of the oval, then put them through the box slit on the side that you will close last.

Oh, and don’t forget a tail!  I used the small scallop punch and our filter paper that I sponged with Pink Pirouette.  It took 3 of the scallops, I joined them with a brad, then crinkled them.  Finally I attached the tail with a dimensional.  You could put the brad through the box if you’d like, but that seemed like a lot of work to me!

Finally, I created the bow using the bow builder punch and the face using the owl punch.   Have fun with this little one!
