Lasting Lily - Dear Friend Card

I don't usually make sympathy cards but sometimes the time calls for it. 
It is something to have set and ready to go when that time calls. Not always something we want to think about but good to be prepared. 


I always believe better late then not at all. 
This card thankfully can be used either way. I used the Lasting Lily Stamp Set (149717), which is free right now with a $100 order. This is a very sympathy driven stamp set but very lovely to use.


These lilies come out great in any color and who wouldn't want some pretty lilies. I made this card simple so that it can be used in a time of need or a time to catch up with an old friend. 


Measurements: 
Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  score 4 1/4
Wood DSP  4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Whisper White for stamping


Hope you enjoyed!

Hello Cupcake - Bright and Fun Card

I wanted to make a fun and bright card using the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set (149714).
So this is what I came up with. 


I love how this card came out and I love how fun and bright it is. It's a lot of fun using the Brights Designer Series Paper Pack (146964). It has been one of my fave paper to work with. 


What's also great about this card is that you can use any color combination out there. Especially any color combination using that Brights paper. These colors are meant to go together and they do so very well. 


Measurements:
Card Base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  score 4 1/4
Whisper White  4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Melon Mambo  4 x 5 1/4
Coastal Cabana  3 x 5 1/4
Scraps of  Melon Mambo - Largest scalloped circle
Scrap of White - Largest Layering Circle
Small scraps for punches - 1 1/2 punch (white) and 1 3/4 punch (Melon Mambo)

Hello Cupcake - Sweet Wishes Card

Now this cupcake is one of my faves. 
And one of my fave things to do is make my own paper with a favorite stamp set. 


I love how this cupcake set comes together that I thought it would be great scattered around the paper. I tried stamping it and cutting them out to be placed on the paper but it didn't seem to look right to me. So I went with stamping it out. 


It actually turned out to be quite easy and it looks like real designer series paper was just placed on the card. This is one of my faves this year for Sale-a-bration. And it was so much fun to make. 


Measurements:
Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2  score 4 1/4
Whisper White  4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Powder Pink  1 inch strip
White  3/4 inch strip
add ribbon
Scraps for punches and stamp



Hope you enjoyed!

Hello Cupcake- Celebrate Your Day Card

I love this cupcake stamp set. I also love that it is a free stamp set. 
You can't go wrong with that. 


Whats great about this stamp set is that you can make the cupcakes in any color combo. I prefer the softer colors and then adding a bold color with the sprinkles. It really makes the cupcake, and your card, pop. 


This card was inspired from the Sale-a-bration catalog. I just love how these colors come together. They really make this cupcake look good enough to eat. 


Measurements:
Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2  score  4/14
Mint Macaron  cut using 2nd largest Rectangle die
Whisper White  cut using 5th largest Rectangle Die
Powder Pink  1 inch strip


Hope you enjoyed!
