Life is Sweeter

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

Life is sweeter with friends like you

On a background of yummy Mango Melody Cardstock, the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Papers are the the star of the show here.  These beautiful, delicate papers need to be seen and touched to be fully appreciated.  One side is Whisper White, the other side is Very Vanilla – so you will have unlimited options on your projects.  I recommend keeping them stored between the tissue papers they arrive in.

For my sentiment I used the Detailed with Love Stamp Set and backed the banner with a piece of matching pattern paper from the Garden Impressions pack.  A fun tip:  Use the Tailored Tag Punch to cut the flag ends of your banners.

I have not yet stamped the inside of card, as I’m waiting to decide who I will send it to 🙂  But, the corners were punched with the new Detailed Trio Punch.  As the name suggests, there are three options on one punch.  The Details you see below, a corner rounder, and the third option is a small oval punch perfect for tag toppers to run a ribbon through.

Happy Father’s Day

Monday, June 18th, 2018

I hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day.  This card takes advantage of the May 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Manly Moments.

The card base, from the kit, is a tri-fold format.  I used the Tailored Tag punched greeting to hold the card closed.

The apron and grilling utensils are from the Apron of Love Stamp Set and matching Apron Builder Framelit Dies.

Here are the rest of the details and supplies for this card:

Fun Tip:  The Tailored Tag was used to punch the greeting and the silver foil mat behind it.  Cut the silver foil punched tag in half and adhere behind the greeting tag – instant mat!  When mounting the tag with dimensionals, overlap the card opening just a tad to keep the bottom flap closed.

How cute are these grilling utensils!  I think they look great from Foil Sheets.

Fun Tip:  Another great benefit of starting with my Paper Pumpkin Kit is I get matching envelopes!
