Happy Birthday

 Isn't this Irresistably Yours paper just darling?
Cut the paper 4x4 and you can get 9 pieces out of the sheet.  I sponged soft sky outside in to bring out the stars a bit.  Then mounted it on whisper white stamped with sentiment from Crazy About You in Tempting Turquoise.  I punched out a bunch of stars from Confetti Stars Border Punch with Silver Glimmer paper to scatter around the card besides the sequins from Frosted Sequins (in Clearance now) or So You Project Kit.   Tied the edge of the card with the Silver Baker's twine and tied a know. I put 2 silver punched stars back to back on each end of the string so that it would be pretty no matter how the strings dangle.  Dauber some tangelo twist and melon mambo on a scrap piece of whisper white, diecut with the happy die and mount on card.

It's a Big Day

This is a variation on a card we made at my upline Tami's that we made at my Stampin' Party this month.  I wanted some bright colors for the birthday card.  After this long winter I am ready for some color.  The base card is Coastal Cabana with 2 different pieces of Best Year Ever DSP from Sale-a-bration (free with any $50 purchase).  The bookmark is made with Ornate Tag Topper punched on both sides, stamped with the sentiments in Memento Ink then used the Blenerabilities to color it in.  Tie the Calypso coral ribbon ( from Best Day Ever Accessory Pack from Sale-a-bration).  Stamp the cake on a 2" circle whisper whiter CS and color it in with blenderability as well making sure to dauber the edge of the circle to make it stand out a bit.  Mount on the Crushed Curry cardstock punched with 2 3/8 inch scallop circle using dimensionals.

It would make a sweet little card for any birthday boy or girl!

Happy Valentine's Day

This was a relatively easy Valentine's Day prep for me.  We had made this before and the kids were involved in making their own treats for their friends.  Given that we had to make over 60 it was so nice to have a die that made it easy.  We used Flower Frenzy Bigz L die and overlapped one of the petals to secure it. We used  one of the other 5 petal flower to create the sepal in green. We punched a quarter inch hole in the center to put the lolly pop through.
I used a one sheet of sticky paper and cut it into strips, had the kids stamp happy valentine's day onto one side and write the name of the recipient and their name on the other.
 We then peeled and stuck it together kind of pushing it up on the flower to secure the flower petals and sepal.
 For my Stampin' Party in February I was given so many hostess gifts, I wanted to show you some sampling.

This one to the right is from Mercedes Weber - a sweet little treat bag with a tag with the donut that just kills me- now I have to get THAT DSP!
 This treat box is from Marisa who used the tag topper punch and the die from Chalk Talk for this darling triangle box.  Too cute for me to open!

This is a treat from annette using Hey Valentine stampset with Happy Heart EF- love sneaking that treat out without damaging the package!
 These are cards from Lin which I love- everyone knows my weakness for bicycles- I can't pass up a great bicycle stamp espeically when they have sweet fillable baskets on them...

How blessed I am to so many wonderful friends!
Margery, Hermelinda, Jean, all your treats were eaten and well appreciated!
