Something for the Tacoma show......

 Here is a Sneak peek of what I have been making for the Tacoma Show.   I had so many requests for Gift card holders so here is one I have been making.  

This is the top of the box.  The Belly band matches the paper that is in the inside.

Now isn't that just the cute!  There is suppose to be other candy in the front of the box but I could find it so I had to improvise.  Still cute tho.....

Now for the Card I made to go with it...

Gotta have a card to go with it....right?
This set turned out pretty good, I think.  How do you like it?  Leave me a comment and let me know.
Hope your having a great week!!!!!

Thank You

As you can tell I really like the new Vivid Vases stamp set.  But, by next week I'll be onto another set. There is just so many cards to make with this set I just couldn't resist just one more card.  Hope you like this one.  It is rather bold but I like it.  You could use any colors but it kinda grew on me.  I stamped a piece of Whisper White c/s- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2- using the Happy Watercolor stamp set on pg 22 (OC).  But this time I used Perfect Plum, Melon Mambo & Pink Pirouette inks.  After I stamped all over the paper I painted mod podge (Matte) all over it.  I then took a piece of tissue paper that I had crinkled up-unfolded it and put it onto of my stamped paper. (be sure not to rub all the crinkles out of it.   I loved the look but it needed something so I took the dotted stamp in the Happy Watercolor set and with Melon Mambo I began to stamp on top of the tissue paper.  Then I dotted some of the dots with glue and applied my dazzling diamonds.  There it was and I loved it.  BUT,  I wanted to change it up.  So I used the Hexagon Hive Thinlit pg 26 in the NEW Occasions Catalog (OC) #132965  $24.95 and cut out this cool background.  Plus, I still have all the Hexagons to use on another card from this background.  Love it!  The Stamp sets I used on the vases were:  Watercolor Wonder, Gorgeous Grunge & Perfect Pennants.  This was a Fun card. Really shiny & bright.  Hope you like it also.

The Best thing in life.....Aren't things

This is one of my favorite stamp sets.  I haven't used it much so today I decided to find a set I hadn't used in a while and this is the one I chose.  Plus,  as you know.....I love the new Petite Petals punch.  As I was looking thru the Annual Catalog a few weeks back I found this other stamp that I really liked.  It is called Off the Grid.  It is also a new set in the Annual Catalog.  And I could see me using it alot.  So with that beings said this is what I came up with today.  And,  it was a rather simple card. Didn't take me anytime at all to do this card.  So let me tell you what I did.  Below is a picture of the items I used.  And if you know me.....It is much less than what I usually use but I really like this card.

Sponge dauber

Cut out your paper and set aside.
Begin with the 4 x 5 1/4 Coastal Cabana.  Use your embossing buddy all over the paper.  Now begin with your Whisper White in pad and you Off the Grid Stamp and stamp all over the paper.  Use your white embossing powder and then heat set it.   Using your Petite Punch punch out 5 green flowers and 19 flowers from your Fresh Prints DSP.  Use whichever ones you want.  I used a scrap piece of Whisper white c/s to stamp the saying (Chocolate Chip ink) from the Feel Good Stamp set and then using the Labels Collection framelit I ran it through my Big Shot to cut it out.  I then sponged the edges in Real Red ink.  
To put the flowers on I started with 5 flowers and framed it the way I liked.  Then using dimensionals I added 1 flower on top of the other 5 and added a center to the flowers-your choice of colors.  Using dimensionals I stacked 3 flowers on top of one another and placed them around the other flowers.  Using the 5 green petals I cut them apart to the center of each flower and used them as leaves.  After all the flowers were on I added the leaves.  
I glued the Real Red c/s to the Whisper White card base and then added dimensionals  to the back side of the Coastal Cabana and set it on top of the Real Red.  To top off the card I added 4 Rhinestones to the white saying.

I hope you like it.  Let me know what you think.
I hope you have a VERY GOOD Week!

If I can help you in any way please feel free to contact me.  Need a catalog or if you would be interested in one of my classes I would love the opportunity help you in anyway.

I love all of these.  If I had to pick a favorite....well, I'm struggling here because I use them all alot.  
I will say the embossing folders are beautiful when making cards ( all 3), and the circles I use alot especially at Christmas,  not the Pop-n-Cuts make the most BEAUTIFUL Wedding cards and the Peekaboo Frames Bigz Die is perfect for lot of things.  Especially childrens thing.  They just love them.  I do not have the digital download but I could see using this could be a fun one for a little boys birthday......what do you think?  Good week for the Weekly Deals!
