Happy Easter!

Good Thoughts

Happy Easter Everyone!

It has been a few days since I posted. We went on spring break to the Outer Banks. All was well minus the one day of 48 degree weather. It was so COLD and just thinking about the wind makes me want to crawl under a blanket! But it was fun and a good get away.

So here is a simple card using the Perfect Pennants stamp set. I stamped the circle first with the Hello Doily background stamp in Crisp Cantaloupe then stamped the sentiment on top in Soft Suede. Easy peasy one, two, threesy! 😉

My next post will be a cute card box that I made. Stay tuned for more!

Ms. Belle’s Pretties

Hi There!

Today is laundry day which is exactly why I am posting and NOT doing laundry. 🙂 It is important in life to have priorities you know.  Today’s share is a box I made for my stamping assistant. She always makes me the cutest little cards but they started taking up a lot of desk space so I made a little box to keep all of her precious gifts in. I found a tutorial by Sam Donald that I am going to share here. It is very easy to follow, she has a wonderful British accent and pretty hands. If I did a video you would think Fred Flinstone was demonstrating. Yes readers, my hands are indeed that bad! 😉

I used the Chalk Talk Framelits for my tag. The label was printed using the Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio. The twine tied around the Ruffle Stretch Ribbon is actually a thread off of the Burlap Ribbon. I really love how the punched flower mimics the flowers on the Sweet Sorbet DSP.

Here is a beautiful example of my assistant’s art work. As you can see it is gorgeous and it just melts my heart. I have a creative baby and I am so happy to share my obsession… um I mean hobby with her! 😀

C.A.S.E. With Betsy

As promised here is another Betsy’s Blossoms card. This is a CASE card that my upline demonstrated a few years ago. I just switched the stamp sets out. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set. The flower is from the Fun Flowers Bigz die (which is on sale this week only!). Always Artichoke and Old Olive are an unlikely pair but look nice together. I hope you think so too! 🙂
