Thank You Tag

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........
How GORGEOUS is this tag.
I simply LOVE how it turned out.
I started out with a Whisper White base tag that was created from the 'Bonanza Dies'.  Next, I adhered a punched out Petal Pink 'Braided Border Punch' piece to the TOP.......And  bottom section of my tag.
My sentiment piece was created from the 'Label Me Lovely Punch' (gold piece) and the 'Label Me Fancy Punch' (white piece)).  I used the 'Layered With Kindness' set to stamp my sentiment......And I used VersaMark ink and 'Gold Embossing Powder' to do that.
The finishing touch was adding some'Metallic-Edge Ribbon' to the top of my tag ....... And added some 'Metallic Gold Pearls as a finishing touch.
So what do you think my friends......
Do you agree with me that this is one GORGEOUS tag.

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!

Lookin' Sharp

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Wine-Down Wednesday.  My middle of the week card feature for today will hopefully offer you some inspiration and provide you with some motivation to keep you moving through your busy week.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today........
This little card just happens to be going to a special friend in Arizona.
I started out by adhering a panel of the 'Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper' to the top section of my Whisper White base card.
Next, I added a stamp cactus image from the 'Witty-Cisms' set to the center of that DSP panel.
Behind that stamped cactus circle......I added some new 'Braided Burlap Trim'. Then I stamped two additional  cactus images and fussy cut them out and adhered them to the center of some layered circles.
And that my friends is all it took to 
create this SUPER FUN card for my friend.

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

Ghirardelli Treats

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 want to jump right in and share that project with you now.
This project is a CASE from the very talented Julie DiMatteo at the Paper Pixie.  She shared this project on her blog 12/17/19.
I created these to give out to my dear friends at Starbucks and our local grocery store on both New Year's Eve and New Year'sDay.  I also handed them out to folks in front of and behind me in stores.
These projects start with a 3x5 piece of Designer Series Paper.  On the inside is a yummy piece of Ghirardelli chocolate.
Needless to say.......
I made LOTS of people HAPPY on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day
 with these yummy little treats.

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!

Moments of Joy 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 added a couple additional products found the 2020 Stampin' UP! Mini Catalog to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here's my Spot Light Sunday card from yesterday on the LEFT.....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card for today on the RIGHT....
The first upgrade I made for this card was changing it from a portrait style card to a landscape card.  I also changed my base card from a Whisper White card to a Mint Macaron card.
Next, I used the same 'Lasting Elegance Dies' in the  bottom right hand corner of my Whisper White layered panel that I used on yesterday's card.
Before I adhered my Whisper White die-cut panel down to my Mint Macaron base card, I wrapped some of the new 'Mint Macaron 1/8" Sheer Liene Ribbon around the top of that panel and then tied it up into a pretty bow. 
My sentiment was stamped in the upper left hand portion of my Whisper White panel ...... And I used the 'Peaceful Moments' set to get the perfect sentiment for this card.
So what do you think my friends.......
Do you like my upgraded card.

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!

Moments of Joy

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2020 Stampin' UP! Mini 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..........
How GORGEOUS is this little card!!!!!
I started out by using the 'Lasting Elegance Dies' to crop out a beautiful detailed flower section on the front of my Whisper White card.  All I needed to do was add a panel of Mint Macaron card stock behind my Whisper White base card ........ And this helped the die-cut image POP,
Next, I created a beautiful sentiment piece with the help of the 'Peaceful Moments' set and the dies that came with the 'Lasting Elegance Dies'.
One of my favorite details for this card was the pretty flowers I created with the help of the Sale-a-Bration Small Bloom Punch.
And that's all it took my friends to create this "OH SO PRETTY" looking card.

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!

You're The Best Tag Box

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And I would like to share with you the project I created using the December 'Something For Everyone' Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project in all  it's glory......
Check out this daring little tag holder that I made using one of the cards that came with this December kit.
I scored one of the cards that came with this kit at 3/4" on the two long sides ...... And then 3/4" from the center fold line.  I created tabs to close up the two long sides ...... And that helped me to create an instant box.
I had no trouble creating a pretty sentiment piece that was positioned on the front of my box ...... And I used the stamp set that came with this kit along with some layering circles and Tailor Tag Punch.
Here are the four tags I tucked inside my little box.
I started with a Whisper White tag base.......
And then stamped my sentiment and created a darling little flower for my tag.  I used some 1/2" Terra Cotta Tile Scallop Linen Ribbon to top off each of  my tags.
  
Here's the front and back of my tag box.....
And this is what my tag box looks like when all the tags are tucked inside.

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