Kind Koala



I wanted a card to send to a friend to let her know that I’m thinking of her and this is the card I made.  She’s gone through some difficulties these  past few weeks so I hope this little guy brings a smile to her face.

Is there someone that you know who could use a handmade card to brighten their day?

My card today uses the stamp set Peaceful Petals from the Occasions catalog.  Using my Oval Framelits I made a template and then sponged inside the oval using Rose Red.  I stamped the flowers with Staz-On and colored in the centers with a blender pen and a Daffodil Delight stamp pad. My sentiment is from Wetlands. It is a very quick and easy card to make!

Thinking of You

Happy Monday!  Here’s an easy card that you can make using the Oval Framelits!

Use your Big Shot and cut out an oval using the Ovals Collection Framelits (#129381) on the front of your card.  Then emboss just the front with the Fancy Fan embossing folder (#127751).  You want to be sure to emboss last so that you don’t flatten the embossing.  Next, use that same size Framelit and cut out an oval out of a sheet from the Watercolor Wonder DSP (#132994).  Using the next smaller size, center it on the oval you just made and you will have created an outer frame that you can glue to the front of your card! You’ll also have an extra oval that you can save for another card –  perhaps use it as an Easter egg!

My greeting (from the set Sassy Salutations) was punched out using the Decorative Label punch. I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the greeting so that it would “pop” up.

If you have any questions, please let me know!!

Thinking of You Petite Petals

Today I have a card for you that uses the Petite Petal and Flower Shop stamp sets again.  The hardest part of this card was deciding which colors to use!  I went with Island Indigo and Pool Party, two beautiful shades of blue. My greeting is from the set Sassy Salutations. I popped up my flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals which always gives a nice effect.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

This card was so much fun to make! The stamp set used to make the banners and the banner punch can each be yours, FREE.  With each $50 purchase you make, you can choose one item in the Sale-a-bration catalog absolutely FREE.  With a $100 purchase, both of these products can be yours.  The punch will also be available in the 2014-2015 annual catalog but you can receive it free until March 31st!

Yesterday I bought a beach towel that has the most gorgeous shades of blues and greens.  I kept looking at it and thought, I should make a card with those colors!  I wanted to throw some Tempting Turquoise into the mix but decided to stick with Pacific Point and Gumball Green. I wrapped some Linen Thread around my Whisper White paper and then adhered my banners to it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I embossed just the upper half of my card with the Decorative Dots folder (also FREE during Sale-a-bration) and stamped my greeting with the stamp set Sassy Salutations (wood #132070  clear#126707).
