You & Me

Hey guys!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the October Afternoon blog a bit ago.  I shared how I do a faux letterpress look with embossing folders.

Here is the card, and if you want to see the easy tutorial, just head over to the OA blog here!



And of course here are the supplies I used to make this card :)

Just a few months early...

Sooo.. Yes, I felt the desire to make some Halloween cards in July, so I went with it! LOL.

I was organizing my room and came across all my Pebbles Halloween supplies and saw my Simon Says Stamp "Happy" die on my desk, and decided to put them to use.  I hope that's okay with you guys. ;)

My favourite part of the first card is the little ticket stubs with die cut stars on them.  The tiny stars are from Lawn Fawn and the ticket die is a bit of an older one by My Favorite Things.  I also used my new border dies by Paper Smooches for the die cut ticking marks around the edge of the white card stock.



I decided I needed to use the negative from the happy die cut, and cut the word out in orange to inlay it in my second card.  Good thing I saved all the little inner pieces!  :)  I still love the look of inlaid die cuts, it's just so clean looking. 



Here are the links to the supplies I used for these cards available at SSS.  The Pebbles supplies are a bit older, and not as readily available.  If they aren't in your stash I highly recommend the new Pebbles Halloween line available here. :)

Pebbles mini envelope cards!



Hey guys!  I'm happy to share these cards I made for the Pebbles blog last month!  The challenge was to use the adorable mini envelopes.  I added them in on my cards as embellishments and thought they turned out pretty cute! :)  You can read more over on the Pebbles blog here.






Here are the supplies I used to create these cute cards as available from Simon Says Stamp! :)

Birthday card duo




 Hey guys!  I'm here today to share a few just for fun cards I made.  As I've probably said a million times, the cards I use the most by far are Birthday and Thanks cards.  So I'm always up for adding a few more to my stash of cards.  I pulled out the Cake Walk line by October Afternoon and made these two cards.






The first card of them that I made was this one, simple because I was dying to use these adorable balloon dies I ordered by Paper Smooches.  There are so many companies with balloon dies, but I chose these for the good price point, and cute sizes.  I decided to use the inlaid die cut technique to incorporate some patterned paper stars in the balloons.  I used the Puffy Star die, and 2x3 Journaling card die set, both from Lawn Fawn.  I used my white gel pen to add a few marks to the balloons, and my Wink of Stella over the inlaid stars, and on the sentiment letter stickers.  I was really happy with the way it turned out, I think it's super cute!

Also, it's hard to see, but I also tied a sting around the balloon ends with simple white thread.  It looks quite cute in person :)


And then because I had all these supplies pulled out on my desk already I made a second card.  I had a scrap of glitter paper on my desk and used that as the base to my card for a little extra fun.
