Botanicals for You

Embossing is one of those traditional go-to techniques that we sometimes forget to use, but when we do, the results are awesome.  The phrase in this stamp set is actually the main focal image.  It will be great to use for tags too!

A new color combination for me – Blackberry Bliss, So Saffron, and Mossy Meadow.  I know winter just started, but I couldn’t help myself.

We’ll Be Going Global Often!

The Going Global suite of products is one of my favorite groupings in the 2016 Occasions Catalog.  You will be seeing many examples of this set on my website and all over the internet.  The images are versatile as are the phrases.  The color combination Stampin’ Up! has highlighted in the catalog is a great gender-neutral compilation – Lost Lagoon, Basic Black, Sahara Sand, and Very Vanilla.

Valentine or Anniversary Card

Yes, I know it Valentine’s Day has passed…but sending love-themed cards in the mail shouldn’t be restricted to one day of the year!

I created this card for some special people this month.

Valentine Heart For You Card

 

Our new heart embossing folder is a perfect background.  I used the words from the Mini Treat Bag framelit and then used the heart framelits too.  The ribbon was leftover from the Holiday Mini (I loved that ribbon!).  Be sure to pop those hearts with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

All About Men Valentine Card and Treat Bag

Once a year, I host an All About Men Stamp Camp.  We love them, but sometimes it is hard to create for the men in our lives.

The event usually happens close to Valentine’s Day so of course I try to include a card for that occasion.  This year, Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog makes our Valentine card-making easy-peasy!

This card uses the Happy Heart embossing folder in Smoky Slate, the Hearts framelits set, the Hello Life stamp set, the bowtie punch, and the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  We also used the postage stamp punch, the 1″ square punch, and the heart punch from the trio of shape punches.

All About Men Bow Tie Valentine Card

I don’t know about you, but my guys love treats.  So a coordinating treat bag was a must.  That new Mini Treat Bag framelit is FABULOUS!!!  I love the “for you” phrase.  For this bag, i just used our basic Real Red cardstock.  We used our clear envelopes to tuck the cookie inside the bag and tied it with white baker’s twine.

Have you worked with our sequins yet?  What a fun way to add some bling to a card!

A while back, I joined a monochromatic card swap.  This is the one I created.

Merry Christmas to everyone!  This holiday season was quite a busy one for me, and sadly, my blog took the brunt of it.  So today, I thought I would share some of my favorite cards.
