I Do!

Welcome!  Hard to believe Saturday is here already, the last few weeks have just flown by!


Today is the final favor/3D item for the Card "Create"tions Collection.  This week my card set was Perfect Couple, so today I have a favor to share using that set.


I love Coastal Cabana for this particular stamp set, it reminds me a bit of Tiffany Blue.  What could be better than a treat tucked away in a sweet little box!

Isn't this just too cute!  The box has Scallop Tag Topper Punch closures and is the perfect size for a couple of small chocolate bars.  This sweet little box would be a great wedding favor or bridal shower favor. 

The box is tied closed with a Crumb Cake Taffeta bow.  I added the sentiment to a tag made with a Heart Framelit.  I stamped "I Do" with Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  A Basic Rhinestone jewel fit perfectly as the diamond in the ring.

The side of the box also has a sentiment.  I stamped it with Bermuda Bay on Coastal Cabana and die cut it with the largest banner from Bitty Banners Framelits.  I added a slender matting of Basic Brown Sugar by fussing cutting.


The card I made yesterday matches perfectly with today's favor.  Now I just need someone to give them to!

Thank you to all of the subscribers for this Card "Create"tions Collection from Create with Connie and Mary.  I have really enjoyed creating for all of you and enjoyed being part of such a talented Design Team.  You can see all of their wonderful favors for today by visiting Create with Connie and Mary.

Happy Life

Welcome!  Today I have a card to share featuring Perfect Couple.  I also used this set for the Create with Connie and Mary Card "Create"tions Collection.  Today my set posts and sad to say, it is the last card set of the collection.  The three weeks flew by...it was too much fun!  If you are not a subscriber, you can still sign up and enjoy all the card sets...isn't that great!  You can find more details at Create with Connie and Mary.  Now...on to today's card!

I think this set is so cute!  The stamps are really fun and fresh.  I made my card clean and simple with minimal stamping and fun embellishments.


I started out with a Coastal Cabana card base that has two corners rounded.  Next is a layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the sentiment with Bermuda Bay in the bottom right corner.  Above it, I added a mustache and pink lips that I stamped and fussy cut.  I used dimensionals to make them stand out.

Along the left side of the card, I added three layers of washi tape.  I have to say...I LOVE WASHI TAPE!  I hadn't used it at all up until about a month ago, and now I see what all the fuss is about!  It is super easy to use!

Lastly, I added my other favorite embellishment....gold sequins!  These little guys make jazzing up cards so easy and fun.  A little sprinkling of them makes this card complete.  I used mini glue dots to adhere them, they are the perfect size!


Thanks for visiting today!  Tomorrow is favor day for the Card "Create"tions Collection and I have a favor that matches this card to share.  I hope you'll stop back to check it out!

Happy Stamping!

Make a Wish Sweetie Pie!

Wow...Thursday is here already...this week has just flown by!  Today I have a fun birthday card for the Thursday Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  This week we have a great sketch to work with, take a look.

I have been obsessed with the new Sweetie Pie stamps, so naturally I planned my card around them.


I have been trying to make girl birthday cards for the bookstore, so this Sweetie Pie set is just perfect!  This card was quick to make for a sweet little girl.

The Island Indigo card base has a second layer of embossed Island Indigo added.  I used the Scallops EF, perfect for a girly card.

Birthday Basics DSP makes up the base of the main design.  I cut three 1 3/8" squares and added them to the card with dimensionals.

The sentiment from Sweet Essentials is stamped with Early Espresso on Primrose Petal cardstock.  To make the banner, I used my Hexagon punch to snip off one of the ends.

The girl is stamped with Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and colored with a blender pen and inks.  I cut her out and added her to a 1 3/8" Raspberry Ripple circle.

The girl was adhered to the banner then the entire banner was adhered to the squares with dimensionals.

This sketch was so much fun, I can see lots of different variations of paper with the same stamps and design.  I hope you will join me in the fun and stamp your own card!  Go to Create with Connie and Mary for all the challenge details plus more great card samples.
