Hostess Sets

I was cleaning up a shelf of stamp sets that my cat helped me clear off by trying to sit on the shelf and the Hostess Level One set Punch Potpourri came out on top. I saw a card made with this set and thought I should give it a go. First off let me say I looked and looked for the blog that inspired this card but could not find it again. If this is a CASE of your card or you know who made a card like this please let me know and I will give credit where credit is due
On to the card. I stamp the triple flower image twice each in Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. These images fit perfectly in the Boho Blossoms Punch and after a couple of punches all of my flowers were cut out. I adhered them onto the Crumb Cake layer and then ran the whole thing thru the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. This layer is wrapped in Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon which is the most beautiful ribbon out there. Put the layer on the Cherry Cobbler base added the sentiment.

I then added a white layer on the inside. I think adding a layer to the inside of a dark cardstock base really adds something special to a one of a kind card.

Lovin' the Spider Web

I love the new Embossing Folder in the Holiday Mini, Spider Web. For this card I used White Staz On and laid down a little color directly onto the Embossing Folder. Put a piece of Elegant Eggplant inside and sent it on thru my favorite tool, the Big Shot. The White Staz On inked the paper at the same time the folder embossed it. So easy and so spooky looking. And yes, the Staz On came off the folder I just used a little Staz On Cleaner and it is as good as new.

Don't forget about the wonderful giveaway from SU! Sign up to be a demonstrator and SU! will send you this beautiful Greenhouse Gala Tote. Mine comes tomorrow, so contact me and come over and see it in person and maybe stay and stamp a bit!

Holiday Mini goes Halloween

I don't really do Halloween but when I saw the new Embossing Folder in the Holiday Mini I knew I would have to have this to make treats. In the Mini they show embossed napkins and I can't wait to try that for my Girl Scout Troop. They love to use the Big Shot and will enjoy embossing their own napkins with a spider web. Be sure and look at the Spider Web Embossing Folder, $7.95 and the adorable Mini Lunch Sacks, $4.95 both of which I used in this project. The Designer Series Paper strip is from Love Notes, quickly becoming my go to paper lately.
