Here’s another card with the new set (available May 1) to benefit Breast Cancer Research.  I used the new embossing folder (summer mini p. 24) on the card base and some lace (page 190) .  The May special is starting early (today) – 30% off certain stamp sets, download bundles and print service.  Also 30% off […]

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation will benefit  when you purchase our new Strength and Hope stamp set or Digital Kit May 1-August31.  I will be featuring some cards made with this beautiful new set for a few days.  There is also a butterfly stamp which I didn’t use yet.

Pretty Postage

Here is another new stamp set (Pretty Postage) and punch (Postage Stamp).  I can tell I will be using this one a bunch.  It also coordinates great with Cute by the Inch (Level 2 hostess set).  The sentiment is from Fabulous Phrases. 

Triple Layer Punches

Another new product for May ( summer mini) is the Triple Layer Punches – Doily and Blossom Bouquet.   I can see a lot of potential for these.  Each punch can cut 3 different images.  Here I combined them all on a couple of cards.  I also added the Button embosslet to the centers of one, since […]

Ahh.. new stamps – The Open Sea

Posted: Saturday, April 23rd, 2011 @ 8:42 am in Projects | No Comments »

I’m trying to find time to play with my summer minicatalog preorder.  I made a big batch of cards for my downline and club members using “The Open Sea” , the “Nautical Expedition” DSP and the new Baker’s twine.  This is a bookmark card.  The front piece, made with the Two Tags die for the […]

More Grab Bag Projects

$5 for 25 cards! Yesterday I showed you a cute mini-album with my $10 grab bag.  Today I opened up the $5 bag and challenged myself to create with no additional consumable supplies.  I did add some stamping and dry embossing.  And I finished off the die cuts leftover from the one sheet that I […]

Grab Bag Creation

Here I added some 12×12 cardstock to my $10 SU grab bag DSP and die cuts to make this adorable 6 inch flip album.  I have enough supplies to make at least 10 – and that was just half of the grab bag.  The rest was some prefolded cards with envelopes for another projects.  My […]

Plane & Simple

I almost overlooked this set at the end of the Occasions minicatalog.  It is a great stamp set for the boys and men in your life.  I always like it when sets have several different sentiments.  THis one has thank you and happy birthday as well.  The background stamp would also work for a nice […]

This set will carry over into the Summer Minicatalog.  It matches the cool new Triple Layer Punches that I got in my preorder.  I’ll get some samples up with them soon.  I added some rhinestones to the top card along with the sentiment from “You’re a Gem”.  That set will not carry over so get […]
