3-Flower Thank You

 Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Tag Thursday.  Today, I will feature a tag I created and show you how easy it is to use minimal supplies to create a SUPER PRETTY TAG.  Now that you have the details for my Tag Thursday creation for this week ........ Let's jump right in with my tag share for today........
I started this tag with a Fresh Freesia base tag that measures 2-1/2" x 4-1/4" ........ And used my Paper Snips to create a fish tail at the bottom of my tag
I cut three pieces of the 'Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper' that measure 1/4" x 2-1/2".  
My Thank You sentiment was stamped directly onto the Designer Series Paper ...... And I used the 'Pansy Patch' set for that sentiment.
I did use the 'Flowers & Leaves Punch' to crop out three little pansy flowers ....... And each of those was adhered to the end of each Designer Series Paper.
The finishing touch was adding some 'Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon' to the top of my tag.  And I added some white gel pen stitching lines around the outer edge of my tag just for FUN!!!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share some Friends Friday creations with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Rachel's Box of Cards

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is 'CASE IT TUESDAY'.  That means today I have a fun little 3-D project that I found on the internet ....... And I created a CASE of that project to share with you today.  This project was SUPER FUN to create and I want to jump right in and share that project with you now.
I posted a version of this box back on April 27th ......... and it was inspired by the very talented Rachel Tessman.  I LOVED how the original project turned out ......... That I created this Black and White version for today.
Just in case you missed it ........ Here's the link to Rachel's blog post.
This project made for a special little friend gift.
I used the 'True Love Designer Series Paper' to decorate both the front and inside of my box........
And I also used that same Designer Series Paper to create 6-BEAUTIFUL cards with coordinating envelopes for the inside.....
Just couldn't be happier with the way this gift turned out......
And one very special friend was even HAPPIER to receive it.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Wine Down Wednesday card with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

4-Square Card Upgrade

 Happy Monday My Blogger Friends! 
Today is Mix-It-UP! Monday, and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ..... But I added a couple additional products found in the 2021-2022 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog to bring this project up to the next stamping level.
Here's my Spot Light Sunday card from yesterday....... 
And check how I upgraded that card for my Mix-It-UP! Monday post.  I created this ADORABLE little gift box to hold my four notecards and coordinating envelopes.
I used the 'Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper' to create my box lid.  I used a 5-3/8" x 6-3/4" piece of that Designer Series Paper and scored it at 3/4" on all four sides.
And the box base is a 7-1/4" x 5-3/4" piece of Thick White Cardstock that is scored at 1" on all four sides.
I wrapped some 'Evening Evergreen 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon' around my box and tied it up into a pretty bow.......And that allowed my ribbon to be slipped off the box when getting inside to the cards.
My sentiment tag on the top of my box was created with the 'Etched in Nature' set and that was stamped onto a tag made from the 'Tailor Made Tags' dies.
And there you have it my friends.......
A TWIST to my normal Mix-It-UP! Monday......
But one well worth sharing with you.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday creation with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

4-Square Card

 Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2021-2022 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  This card uses several products from that new catalog ........ And I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today..........
Check out one of the NEW 2021-2023 Stampin' UP! In-Colors.  It's Stampin' UP! color is called Evening Evergreen.
I used the 'Etched in Nature' stamp set to stamp my sentiment in the lower right hand corner of my card........
And the butterfly that was added to the top left hand corner is from that same set.
I used both Evening Evergreen and Mint Macaron cardstock for the squares on the front of my card.
Just couldn't be happier with the way this note card turned out.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share an upgraded version of this very card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
