I seen a video of this about 3 months ago and have been playing around with both paper and ribbon to see the different looks you can get from them. Here I am using Pretty in Pink & Whisper White CS. White and Regal Rose Grossgrain ribbon. Flower is an off brand Flower Fusion from Hobby Lobby and last finishing touch is the button I attached to the center of the flower. I was blessed to be able to acquire alot of my Mom's old buttons from over the years. So this card is unique, because I don't think I could find another button like this ever again. I used glue dots to adhere the ribbon in different spots to keep from moving and also used snail adhesive to adhere to the back. If you want the dimensions of the card, just email me and I can forward over to you. I think it was cute and reminds me of a quilted blanket, so fitting for a brand new baby. Enjoy!!

Flowers from my DH

I had to show off my beautiful flowers from my DH. "Just Because" or so that's what the card said...hmmm...lhtd!!! They smell as good as they look!!


Here is an idea for you to have something special for your girfriends the next time they come over. I will have these for my Stampin Club next time they are over on Sunday.

Card Flip Box & 3 x 3's

Here is a little Flip box that I created the other day. I have to admit that I seen it on another blog, but guessed on dimensions. I used Garden Green CS, Brilliant Blue, Very Vanilla with Jumbo stamp around wheel w/brilliant blue ink. Added very vanilla Grossgrain ribbon as the handel. I attached a Scallop circle on the front with dimensionals to keep the flap closed. I also made 5 - 3 x 3 note cards to put in the inside, 2-birthday, 2-thank you & 1-hello. I will have dimensions up soon. I just wanted to get up to inspire anyone to make one of these and give it away to someone. I have learned as someone that crafts now, it brings a smile to someones face to get something like this. SHARE!! I hope you like it!


Here is a birthday card that I made last night for my cousin. I used Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Very Vanilla & Raspberry Tart DSP. Accented with Twill tape, Flower Fusion & a clear rhinstone brad. I used the stamp set Upsey Daisey "Birthday Celebrations" with the Medium Oval punch and offset it on top of another rose red punch with a dimensional. I attached my Rose Red Flower Fusion with a clear Rhinestone Brad. Simple easy and ready to mail.

Here is a real simple card using alot of the products through Sale-a-Bration with SU. Paper is So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla & DSP - Delicat Dots. I used stamp sets, Congrats & Polka Dot Punches. This technique is the Dazzling Diamonds window. I used the scallop circle punch, added packaging tape behind, sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds, Stamped image on Vanilla and attached to back of DSP. Very Vanilla Grossgrain ribbon is used on this card. Leave card blank or stamp with the many different occassions that the Congrats set comes with. I think the Dazzling Diamonds gives it a little bit of Pizzazz!! I wanted to use the Scallop Circle punch to show one of my club members different ideas that she can use with hers.
