Lacy Birthday

I have used the background stamp, Something Lacy in today's card.

My card base is in Basic Black. The first layer is Pink Pirouette. The second layer is Basic Black and I have stamped Something Lacy with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.

The Happy Birthday Wishes is from a retired hostess set called Simply Sketched. I have stamped this onto Pink Pirouette yardstick using Basic Black ink and punched it out using the Scallop Oval punch.

I have finished the card by adding a bow in Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon.

A fairly quick and simple card today but I think it is very pretty. What do you think?

Birthday Butterfly

I have chosen Blackberry Bliss for the base of my card today.

I have added a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock and I have sponged Blackberry Bliss over one of the cards from the Artisan Embellishment Kit to make the pretty background. I wasn't going to buy this kit but decided the cards would be great for creating some pretty backgrounds.

The Birthday Wishes sentiment is from the Four You stamp set and is also stamped in Blackberry Bliss.

I cut the butterfly in Garden Green using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies and sponged over it with Blackberry Bliss ink. I have added some Basic Pearls to finish.

Do you like my sponged background?

Mini Treat Bag Mini Album

I have used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies and some recycled brown packing paper to make six mini treat bags. I have then used these bags to make this mini album.

I scored each bag at 1/2" from the closed end, stacked them on top of each other, sticking each one to the next with sticky strip. I punched two holes for the ribbon using my crop-o-dile.

I made inserts for each of the bags using a piece of 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" cardstock. To this I added a Project Life Grid Card for journalling. I completed each insert with a flag made using the banner punch and attached using the handheld stapler.

I decorated the album using the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper, Best Year Ever Accessory Pack, Celebrate Today stamp set and the Balloon Framelits.

What type of album would you like to make?

Mini Treat Bag For You

Today I have a gift bag made using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.

Instead of making a standard flat pocket like bag I have made it with gusseted sides.

I have made the bag using Whisper White cardstock that I have embossed using the Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I have decorated the bag using a black tag punched with the Ornate Tag Topper punch.

The hearts have been added using the heart strip from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die set.

The butterfly is punched in Silver Glimmer Paper using the Elegant Butterfly punch.

I have finished the tag by using Real Red 1/4" Cotton Ribbon, Whisper White Bakers Twine and a small silver clothes pin.

You could make this bag in any colour and emboss it with many different embossing folders to get a completely different look.

What do you think of my little gift bag?
