Sending Hugs with Springtime Impressions

I wanted to make a special get well / thinking of you card for one of my customers. I also wanted to participate in this weeks CASe this Sketch. The Thinlits from the Springtime Impressions Bundle called out to me!

The card was roughly based on this sketch.

 

Design Notes for Springtime Impressions Card:

It was so much fun making this card! I started with the large die cut and some Mossy Meadow card stock. Then I cut another piece with some of the Floral Romance Designer Series paper and cut out three of the flowers, placing them on top of the Mossy Meadow piece. After I stamped the sentiment, I added a few flowers cut with another die from the Springtime Impressions set. I dressed things up a bit with some Metallic Pearls at the center of each flower. The last step was to add a shiny touch with some Wink of Stella.

3″ x 3″ Note Cards – Two Versions!

A few days ago, I showed you a darling little box I made to hold 3″ x 3″ note cards. I wanted to show you the cards thay I made to go in the boxes. I had such a good time, I made two different sets. To see the box, look here.

Design Notes for 3″ x 3″ Note Cards:

I made the Note Cards themselves from Whisper White card stock. If you use regular, 8.5″ x 11″ card stock, you will have lots of waste since you need to cut 3″ x 6″ If you used 12″ x 12″ card stock you will be able to cut 8 from each piece of card stock and no waste!

The 3″ x 3″ Envelopes fit perfectly. (They are just a tad bigger than 3″ x 3″.)

I used various pieces from the Floral Romance Designer Paper and then added a sentiment, backed with some Mossy Meadow. Some cards had ribbon and some had paper punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. I added a few sequins to some cards and Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems to others. Gotta have a little bling!

The 3″ x 3″ Envelopes fit perfectly. (they are just a tab bigger than 3″ x 3″.)

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Meets Oh So Eclectic!

I’m baaaaack! I know it has been a few weeks since I showed you a card for one of the men in your life. But, I’m back! This week the card will feature some of the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper and stamps from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Oh So Eclectic stamp sets.

Design Notes for Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card:

Are you surprised that I would use paper from a package called “Floral Romance”? It’s a great package of paper with two beautiful vellum papers and some lovely prints. The one I used today just seems to work for anyone. The reverse side is truly perfect for men as well. Here, I just flipped the Designer Paper and switched the colors.

This card is just a happy series of layers on a Sahara Sand base. First, a piece of 2″ x 5 1/2″ Floral Romance Designer Paper, then a mat of Mossy Meadow. The leaves on the Very Vanilla piece were stamped once then stamped two more times without reinking. You know that’s called stamping off. A really simple technique but one that packs quite a nice look.

Floral Romance for February Thank You

I love to send cards to my customers to thank them for purchasing from me. It’s always fun for me to design something nice. This month, one of the cards we made in card class featured the Floral Romance paper and so I used a different piece from that collection for this card.

floral Romance DSP, Humming Along stamp set, Floral Romance Deigner Paper, Thank you, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Do you think I went a little rogue with the colors –  Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Grapefruit Grove?

 

Design Notes for Floral Romance Designer Paper:

In the Floral Romance paper package, two of the papers are vellum. I used one that is primarily Powder Pink and backed it with a piece of Whisper White card stock to show off the pattern. First, I tried using a mat with Powder Pink but felt like it needed something with more color. So, the Pear Pizzazz mat – enhanced with some embossing with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder – added some color. One more try with Petal Pink but still no! I was inspired to use some Grapefruit Grove paper by the beautiful ribbon from the Organza Ribbon Comb – a Sale-A-Bration item that is back in stock!

I’m pretty happy with this color combination.

.

One last thing.. I decided that the envelop needed a little love and wanted to try something I had seen online. I used the Edgelit die from the Be Mine Dies set.

Copper Tea Tins for Valentine Treats

Each month, I hold four card classes. We make cards and have lots of fun. I love to offer a door prize each month. Sometimes, it’s a spool of ribbon, or a package of embellishments. Occasionally, I make something like cards or boxes. This month, I was inspired! I decorated some Copper Tea Tins and filed them with Valentine candies. It was fun putting them together. I hope my friends will be excited about possibly winning!

If you win, you can keep it for yourself or give it to someone else – with or without the candy!

Design Notes for Copper Tea Tins Valentine:

Are you wondering about the stamped sentiment? I was looking for something small and ended up using a sentiment from the January Paper Pumpkin kit! Isn’t it perfect? I keep all of my past Paper Pumpkin stamp sets and find they often come in handy.

Copper Tea Tins, share What You Love DSP, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper seemed just right to go with the copper tin. The ribbon is from the Annual Catalog and is part of the Tea Room Suite. I love the copper hued trim on the edges.
