I have so many photos that I will only put up a few today so I don't inundate you, ok?
I am offering a special gift to all who order from me before April 1st - I have a long list of retired stamp sets and am offering a FREE stamp set from these retired sets with every $50 purchase!!
The paper that goes so well with this stamp set is the SWEET STITCHES DESIGNER PAPER. Oh my, it is absolutely adorable. My favorite pieces are the buttons page and the sewing machines in all different bright colors page. (Item #121781 - $9.95) GET YOUR PAPER FROM ME ALSO TO HELP GET YOUR ORDER UP TO $50 FOR YOUR FREE STAMP SET.
I understand that in the new catalog coming out in soon, all the Designer Papers are going to be $1.00 more per pack. So the $9.95 papers will be $10.95, the $10.95 papers will be $11.95, etc. That is what I understand. So if you see some papers you have been waiting to purchase, THIS IS THE TIME TO PURCHASE THEM WHILE THE PRICES ARE THE LOWEST THEY WILL BE.
And speaking of LOW PRICES, have you seen the Clearance Rack lately?? Those are some amazing prices on the papers, ribbons, buttons and brads, etc. These can all add up to that special $50 order so you can get personally from me a free stamp set of f my retired sets list.
The cute buttons on my card are the Designer Big Buttons in the color SWEET STITCHES (of course!) for $8.95 (item #122302) And don't forget the designer fabric if you like to do crafts with fabric. I made an adorable onesie for my new baby granddaughter with two ruffles around the waist with the Sweet Stitches Fabric (item #121818 $9.95 - 3 long fat quarters) and pompom trim only $6.50 each roll of 5 yards. (items #123322-Melon Mambo; #123323-Tangerine Tango; #121885-Daffodil Delight).
I did not use this on my card above, but ther eare also Fabric Designer Brads I used on another card (see below) (Item #121880 for $6.95 for 24 brads) that match perfectly these papers, fabrics and stamps!!
LOVE IT WHEN EVERYTHING MATCHES AND I DON'T HAVE TO GUESS IF IT ALL GOES TOGETHER. IT MAKES IT SO PROFESSIONAL, DOESN'T IT??!!
From today, April 20 through midnight April 30th, all those who order from me will have A SECOND CHANCE TO WIN SOMETHING FOR FREE - I will put their names into a drawing for the hostess set in the Occasions Mini called A SLICE OF LIFE. It will be like YOU were the hostess for my orders these last few days of the month and YOU get the FREE HOSTESS SET!! Order ONLINE from my stampin up site and it will notify me when you order, then I will add your name to the drawing AS WELL AS send you the list of my retired stamps for you to choose the free set when your order reaches $50 of merchandise!! WOW, DON'T YOU LOVE FREE THINGS??!!
I have been really lucky this month winning free things from others in the "BLOG WORLD" so thought I would pass on the good fortune by offering free things TO YOU!!
Back to my card: some of you will wonder how I got the tape measure to look so real - well, after I stamped it and cut it out, I used my bone folder and rubbed it along the card stock like you would if you were curling ribbon. I did it a few times to break the fibers in the card stock, but not so much it goes limp. Then I did it on one end over the top of the card stock so it flips up, then on the other end under the card stock so it flips down. Cute, huh? Used glue dots to attach.
Second Card I wanted to show you the fabric button I used on the St. Patrick Day card, but it could actually be for any time of the year that you want to wish someone GOOD LUCK.
I created this cute Easter Card with the bunny from the set SO CUTE (item #123893 clear) I used blush blossom card stock and stamped the bunny with rich razzleberry, pretty in pink and blush blossom ink as the background paper. Then I used the Four Frames NEW STAMPSET and colored in the flowers and punched it with the Designer Label Punch and backed it with two punches from the same punch in rich razzleberry. I do NOT own a Happy Easter Stamp! Isn't that crazy??!! So I stamped Happy from a small Happy Birthday stamp retired and Stamped it twice to Say Happy Happy, then put a pearl for the second Happy so it reads HAPPY HOPPY. Cute, eh? Rich razzleberry ink completes this simple layered card. Try this technique of making your own simple designer paper with some of YOUR small stamps, or purchase this SO CUTE STAMP SET today from me online!!
More later with more photos!! Inky fingers to y'all!!
