A Happy Thing

Stunning!   It's all I have to say.

Inspired by:  Barb StencelOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Note:  The lemon and leaves on this card were originally colored with a product that is no longer available.  I have provided an alternative product to use for a similar result.  Don't forget to stamp and color your envelope too.  Give it the real WOW factor.

Hot Mess

My dear friend Cheryl Renth is affectionately known at "Hot Mess'.  Her son is getting married and she designed this Save the Date announcement for the upcoming nuptials. Joshua is an IT professional so she created this card using the Stampin’ UP! Envelope Punch Board to make a file folder. The film strip effect was made using couples engagement photos and the OnFilm Framelit Dies. Tucked inside is a real floppy disk that has the announcement on the label. How stinkin’ cute is that.  Cheryl is an out-of-the-box designer and I admire & love her creative talents.

I suppose you’re wondering why I have this project on my blog. Well that’s because I heeeelllllped. I was the puncher-outer of all those tiny holes in the film strip diecuts.  I am now so proficient with the film strip framelit that I could teach a class on it. Perhaps I will.

Thanks Cheryl for your friendship and allowing me to feature your project on my blog.

Pearly White

I have seen this card everywhere.  Pinterest, Facebook, Stampin’ Connection, Blogs.  The origin is from the very talented Lee Conrey.  It is a beautiful card with a soft and stunning presence.  It's suitable for many occasstions and SO VERY EASY to make.  I did not stamp the front of this card as I didn’t want to take anything away from the charisma.  My customer’s had a choice of sentiments they could use for the inside.

And wouldn’t you know it!  The Lace Ribbon Border Punch is retiring at the end of this month.  The palm of my hand just went to my forehead.
