Lady Bug Birthday

I love this card the colours blended together amazingly. I used basic black, rose red, and regal rose card stock. As you can see I used the scallop circle punch, the 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches. I used two different stamp sets the lady bug is from the Hostess level 1 Darling Dots, and the Happy Birthday is from the winter fall catalogue which was Many Scallops. The lady bug paper was from Las Vegas from a Scrapbooking store. I touched this card up with red gingham ribbon. Hope you like. Till my next post enjoy....

Cover of Pink Manhattan

What a cute card wish it would scan better for you all, but i tried three or four times and this was the best scan, sorry. I used pretty in pink and certain celery card stock, I embossed the pink paper with the manhattan SU impression folder. Then i sponged the two flowers with pretty in pink stamp pad ink to give it some dimension and texture and topped it off with a clear rhinestone brad and 5/8 gingham ribbon. I used the scallop punch for the label. The posting below is the inside of this card I thought it was very cute and added a nice touch to this simple yet elegant card. Til my next post enjoy...

Inside Pink Manhattan

This is the inside of the Manhattan Pink card i used a designer edge punch that leaves a nice embossed edge too. The "make a wish" is the large oval punch then i used dimension dots to have it pop through the front of the cover. I know the card looks simple but I thought it was very springy and elegant. Hope you like.

Treat Pouch

This is a very simple yet fun to make cause you get to use sanding blocks to make the flower look like it is fabric when it is really paper. Sorry i forgot to fill the inside with treats to show you how it opens. So all you do is cut a piece of Baja Breeze card stock at 4" X 12" then score at 4", 5", and 9". I used the Soft Summer stamp set and the Chocolate Chip Corduroy brads, Kiwi Kiss for the little strip under the Tangerine Tango DSP flower. Now that it is all decorated you can fold the score lines and there you go, you have your treat pouch. Til my next post enjoy...

Gift Card Folder

This folder was alot of fun to make and so easy. I cut 2 3/4" by 8 1/2" for the little note cards, then used the 1 3/4" circle punch for the cute little bird. The folder was 9 3/4" by 6" then lengthwise score at 4 3/4" and 5", then rotate 90 degrees and score at 2 1/2". I also used DSP to decorate the inside of the little envelopes. This was so easy and fun and how cute to give as a gift. Til my next post enjoy.....

Butterfly Birthday

This card was so much fun to make, all i did was make a mask by stamping the black windows on a spare piece of paper, then i cut out the center. I placed the spare piece of paper down and stamped the butterflies in the holes of the masked paper. After the butterflies were stamped i went and stamped the frame around the butterflies. I used markers to colour in and then covered it with Crystal Effects. I used Bliss Blue, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White card stock. Til next time enjoy...

Scallop Punch Flower

This card was fun to make and such bright colours too. I used Flamingo DSP, So Saffron, Pumkin Pie, and Very Vanilla card stock. I took the Scallop Punch and folded it in half but not threw a scallop, then flipped it over counted 2 scallops and folded over, and then the last 2 scallops you will see naturally fold over. Then I opened the scallop completely and cut at the smallest fold end cutting along the original half fold from the beginning. This gives you 2 pieces which gives you the 2 different patterns. You will see as you make it how it comes together and what im trying to explain. Then i embossed the Happy Anniversary. Til my next post have a great day.

Cameo Coral Garden

I was going threw my stamp sets and came across this one set from summer 2008 and i loved it so much i brought it out from retirement to see what i could come up with. I used cameo coral, creamy caramel, and very vanilla card stock, along with cameo coral ink pad. The stamp set is "From the Garden" it was a level 2 hostest set from last summer which is no longer available sorry. I used the designer label punch along with the circle punches, and last but not least finished it off with the gingham ribbon cameo coral. So how about going threw your old sets and see what you can come up with!!!
Until my next post enjoy...

Post it Note Holder

I made this post it note holder at a retreat i went to, the back holder is 4" chipboard covered in old olive DSP, then I used bliss blue, ruby red, and whisper white card stock, with bliss blue ink pad and dazzaling diamond glitter. I don't know the measurements, for the pieces were pre cut sorry. As you can see we used the scallop, and circle punches, and toped it off with white ribbon. When you lift the lid you glue the pad of post it notes to the the chipboard and only glue the back page of the note pad hehehe. You can use any stamp set you like to decorate the top with.

Til my next post enjoy.

This was a hard impression folder to get an idea for. I tried a few different things but this was my best idea so far, maybe some of you have better ideas for this folder. I Used Sahara Sand, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze card stock. The name tag is the Scallop and Larg Oval punches with the classic chocolate chip ink pad... Good luck with coming up with your great ideas for this Manhattan Flower Impressions Die Folder.
