Mini Cards

Posted: Tuesday, February 26th, 2013 @ 12:38 pm in Projects | No Comments »

Mini 3×3″ love notes are always fun to make.  I believe I CASED this set from the Leadership Conference, using the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (Spring Catalog) and the Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set (FREE during Sale-A-Bration).  I love the Bitty Butterfly punch (Spring Catalog).  Oh and catch the dry embossed stitching (Needlepoint border – […]

There are two ways to get the Madison Avenue stamp set for free – with a $50 purchase or in a hostess bundle with a $400 party.  Here are a few ideas for this versatile set.  I think some of them are CASED from our demonstrator magazine.  Remember you get 25% more free product in […]

Faux Cloisonne Technique

I thought the Faux Cloisonne Technique might look nice with the Feeling Sentimental stamp set (FREE during Sale-a-bration). I embossed in gold on a glossy magazine page and again on Basic Black cardstock.  I trimmed the magazine image very closely and then adhered on top of the black layer, so some of the gold on black […]

Don’t overlook the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit on p 18 of the Spring Catalog.  Not only can you use it for tags, but the components make great cards also.  And it comes with lots of flowers to use on other projects.   Add a package of the Designer Paper Patterns Stack and Whisper White Cardstock and you […]

I had fun making a few quick and easy 3 x 3″ cards with the FREE Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set.  I lined the envelopes with a bit of the FREE Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper. Here is a box to fit the 3 x 3 cards that was presented at Leadership.  Use your diagonal plate […]
