I saw a super cute card made in this order on  I love the simplicity of it!  Living in a military community we get new neighbors all the time so I really needed to make some "welcome to the neighborhood" type cards and this is what I came up with.   I used Field Flowers on Crumb Cake cardstock with Gumball Green ink for the stems and a retired color I think it was called Really Rust for my blooms and the welcome banner.  I really want some Tangerine Tango to make this card again as I think that would really make the blooms "pop".  That sweet little Welcome banner was made using Fabulous Phrases and then cut out with the new Bitty Banners Framelits

Christmas Tags

I was so happy to finally get some "play" time in my craft room this weekend.  I came up with a couple of tags I hope you will enjoy.  I'm so loving this new Ornament Keepsakes bundle which I used on the "to my friend" tag....that phrase comes from the Friendly Phrases stamp set.  The For You tag gets its sentiment from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and I used the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits to cut it out.  The sweet "merry" tag was made using the Tiny Tags stamp set with the coordinating Jewelry Tag Punch.  That cute Christmas tree was made so quickly and easily by using the Pennant Punch....I just punched out 4 pennants, scored down the middle of each one and then adhered them back to back.  That cute polka dot paper comes from the designer series paper Be Of Good cute!!!  Oh and I almost forgot.....both of the tags are actually the same is just folded up and I used the awesome Two Tags Bigz Die for that!

Ornament Keepsakes...old ink pad vs. new ink pad

Just had a few minutes to play today between picking up kids, etc. and I couldn't wait to play with the new Ornament Keepsakes and the new coordinating Framelits.  You can purchase them separately, however, you can buy them in a bundle and save some money!   Check the bundle out here!  Love how easy these are to work with!  I stamped my image first and then just laid the framelit on top of the image (notice it is called a framelit because it frames the can see through it to line up your image) and ran it through my big shot....didn't have to tape it in place or anything which is nice if you are mass producing!  I knew I loved the new Stampin Up foam ink pads but I hadn't really compared the resulting images side by side and I decided to do that today.  On the left I used an old style Ruby Red pad I had...granted it is a little older but it seemed quite juicy and on the right is the new style pad in Raspberry Ripple.  Keep in mind that the Raspberry Ripple is a much darker almost jewel tone red but you can clearly see how much cleaner and crisper the new ink pads stamp!  Love it!!!  I actually had inked the Ruby Red up quite a few times....really did the twist, pat, twist, pat thing but with the Raspberry Ripple it was just a quick tap tap and onto the paper and this is the first result I got.  Just wanted to share this with you if you have been on the fence about trying the new ink pad.

Ruffled Ribbon Share

Just a little picture if you've been thinking about this ribbon share....this ribbon is gorgeous and has soo much texture.   I'm including some coordinating brads and some matching sheer ribbon from the saleabration kits.  It is open until Monday but I had some that just came in with an order I received this week so I went ahead and made one up.  The ribbon share includes one yard of each of 5 colors as shown and is just $5 plus $2 shipping.  If you would like more than one share I will cut your ribbon consecutively so that you have one large piece instead of several one yard pieces.  It's a great way to have some of each color on hand without having to purchase a whole spool of each!  Just drop me an email by Monday August 6th if you want to be included in this share!
