Paper Pumpkin Saturday - Thanks Card

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And do I have a SUPER FUN card to share with you!  This card was made with my March Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I thought outside the box when I created this little nugget of cute-ness.........And I'm just thrilled with the way this card turned out.  Let me share that card with you now.
This card used up some of the DSP/Envelope Paper that was included in the March Paper Pumpkin kit.
I cut the paper down to make a banner flag for the front of my card......
And added an extra large layer of circles with a die-cut 'thanks' right in the middle.
Just love everything Bermuda Bay and this card just screams a HAPPY THANKS message all over it.
I think my favorite part to this card is the Linen Thread that I added to the very top of my card.
 
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!

This week I want to share the Thank You tags I created for my Stamp of the Month customers for July.  These are the Thank You tags they received with their Swirly Bird Bundle order.
Each tag spot lights the FABULOUS new 2016-2018 In-Color collection.
I added two In-Color DSP banner flags to each tag......
Along with a pretty stamped Thank You.
I also used the 'Swirly Scribbles Thinlits' to die-cut out a swirly circle for each tag......
And each tag was topped off with a pretty Ruched Ribbon and a coordinating die-cut butterfly.
Just LOVE LOVE LOVE how these tags turned out and have to say that they looked pretty darn ADORABLE attached to all my customers orders.

3D Tuesday-Gift Bag from Glassine Bag

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is 3-D Tuesday.  That means today I have a fun little 3-D project to share with you.  This project is SUPER QUICK and SUPER EASY to create and can be custom designed for any occasions.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.
This ADORABLE treat bag was made using one of the new 'Glassine Gift Bags' on page 176.
All I did was scored the sides and bottom of my Glassine Bag at 3/4"......
And then formed a gusseted side to my bag.
I added a tag from a past Paper Pumpkin kit ........ Along with a die-cut butterfly to the front of my bag......
And then topped it all off with a little clothespin accent piece.
This is a fun project to make and even more fun to give away.

Mix-It-UP! Monday Fiesta 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 few additions to this card to bring it up to the next stamping level.
Here's my Spot Light Sunday card on the left.......
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the right........
My card is SERIOUSLY an upgraded Fiesta card without a doubt.
I changed up the 'Fiesta' sentiment with three colorful layers and then added a strip of 'Birthday Fiesta DSP' under the popped up sentiment panel.
I also cut out one of the sombrero images that is on this DSP and added it to the top of my stamped cactus.  Talk about TIME TO PARTY! 
If the sombrero isn't a party statement in itself ....... Then my two colorful banner flags covers the party statement for this card.
I also used the 'Festive' embossing folder on my Tempting Turquoise cardstock panel and that just put the finishing touch on this card.
So there you have it my friends.....
Which card do you like better?

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

Spot Light Sunday - Fiesta

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the new 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  This card uses several new products from that catalog ...... So let me jump right in with my card share for today.........
Let's talk about the fun FIESTA CARD that I was able to create with just a few new Stampin' UP! products.
I started out by stamping my 'Fiesta Like There's No Manana' sentiment onto a panel of Whisper White and then matted it with some Melon Mambo cardstock and two circles punched out with the "Birthday Fiesta' DSP.
Each circle was matted with a 1-1/4" Melon Mambo circle and then a tiny white flower was added to the center of each circle.
My banners were die-cut from the 'Fiesta Time' Framelits collection and then I used the 'Birthday Fiesta' stamp set to bring some FUN AND COLOR into each of the banners.
I used the new 'Festive' Embossing Folder on my Tempting Turquoise panel and that gave this panel just a nice little bit of texture.
So there you have it friends.  I pretty quick and easy card that is packed full of HAPPY and FUN.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow 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!
