Sweet Ice Cream Tag

I haven’t made a tag in a while and when I was flipping through my Designer Series Paper stash (it’s really a leaning tower of “Oh My Goodness I Have TOO Much”), I saw the Simply Marbelous paper (available as a Sale-A-Bration item) and thought Ice Cream Birthday Tag! I cut two tags (Basic WhiteContinue reading “Sweet Ice Cream Tag”

Butterflies and Flowers Layering Decorative Mask (Thank You)

Until Stampin’ Up! came out with their Blending Brushes, I will admit that I never really picked up the decorative mask products. Though I can say I’m proficient with daubers, I’m also pretty clumsy with them – blending brushes make it so easy to create great images. I made this thank you card using theContinue reading “Butterflies and Flowers Layering Decorative Mask (Thank You)”

March 2022 Paper Pumpkin

Light the Candles Kit (and Alternative)

I got my Light the Candles card kit in – and what a breeze to quickly make 8 birthday cards (two each of the designs above). It’s hard to make out in the picture but there is a great dimension to these cards and some extra birthday sparkle. I originally posted about these here andContinue reading “Light the Candles Kit (and Alternative)”

Rainbow Valentine’s Wiper Card

I have a friend that loves to request cards from me for his wife. Honestly, his memory impresses me – I have a whole craft room of supplies that I am always playing in and I’m often in there the night before an occasion creating a card because…I forgot….). For this year’s Valentine card, IContinue reading “Rainbow Valentine’s Wiper Card”

Sweet Talk Mini Gift Bag

Who doesn’t love a little gift bag? This one is fairly easy to create using 2 pieces of 6″x6″ pieces of Designer Series Paper. A few scores, some snipping and burnishing – a dollop of glue, and you’re done. I’ve included a tutorial with step by steps here: I’ve made these types of gift bagsContinue reading “Sweet Talk Mini Gift Bag”

February 2022 Paper Pumpkin

The sneak peek graphics are out for Stampin’ Up!’s February’s Paper Pumpkin kit – and hmmm, this should be interesting. Working off of last month’s pun-themed kit, should I say, unleash your inner crafting animal and let’s have some cardmaking fun? Haha – I don’t know if we have to get that wild, but thisContinue reading “February 2022 Paper Pumpkin”

Sweet Talk Valentine’s Card

I think my favorite part of the Sweet Talk suite collection is the Designer Series Paper – it has traditional ‘Valentine’s’ colors AND fun pops of other colors you wouldn’t expect. I made the DSP the focal point of this card. To start, I scored a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Thick BasicContinue reading “Sweet Talk Valentine’s Card”

All of these components areContinue reading “Sweet Talk Little Shaker Box”
