Hello Stationery

Do you ever find yourself needing a generic card?  You need to mail a check for the kids’ school.  Send a friend a quick note.  I do.  A lot.

I decided to make some simple “generic” cards for myself.

The set of cards showcases the 2015-2017 In Colors with coordinating ribbon and dollies, and I used the Gift from the Garden and Pop of Paradise stamp sets.

The “hello”  fits perfectly in the 1 3/8″ circle punch. The boots were cut out using the big shot layering circle framelits.

Of course I added dimensionals. Always do.

Have a great day!

I used the Pop of Paradise and Thoughtful Banners stamp sets to create this bright and cheery birthday card.

The flamingo is, well, in flirty flamingo, with coordinating ruched ribbon.  I used the ’16-’18 In Color designer series paper for the polka dot peekaboo peach cardstock, and plain cardstock for the cucumber crush.  The card base is the thick white cardstock.

The flamingo was adhered with dimensionals – my FAVORITE embellishment!!

Loving the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate!

Look at this beautiful product!


It has either a gold side or a silver side of three different patterns and adds an elegant beauty to your projects!

I created some thank you cards using the Pop of Paradise set, some silver and gold embossing and the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.

One pointer, due to the transparent nature of the acetate, I hid the glue dots under the flamingo in order to attach it to the cardstock.  See image below.

Have a fabulous day!

A Flamingo Thank You

Do you know what the perfect set is for thanking a teacher who is retiring to Florida?  Well, Pop of Paradise of course!

Look at this little cutie….

It’s a 5×7 card so we can include the names of all the families who contributed to the teacher’s gift.  I also used the envelope maker with coordinating Bold Brights DSP.
