For you

Hello everyone! I bought a bunch of new Tim Holtz dies last week and had every intention of crafting all weekend long but of course that never happened. Last night I started making this as a gift card holder and finally finished it today. I used Tim Holtz die called "pocket envelope". Love this die! You can also use it to make mini books. The stamp is from Dandelion Designs "you're so sweet" set. The cupcake is from the "fuzzy bear #1 set.
I used inverted circles die from Cheery Lynn Designs and the circle is from Spellbinders. Patterned paper is Doodlebug.
Sentiment stamp is Stephanie Barnard's dragonfly die and stamp set.
Here's a photo of the back so you can see the gift card.
Thanks for stopping by today and leaving your sweet comments!!! Have a great rest of the week!!!

Another happy birthday card

Last Saturday, I had to make another birthday card because my husband saw the previous card that I posted here which I had planned to give to him on Sunday. I actually thought about buying a Hallmark card instead but then the guilt set in as I looked at all my craft supplies sitting there staring at me. I never got a chance to ink up this stamp from Dandelion Designs so I thought it would be a good time to use it. This stamp is from the "bubbles & smiles" set.Word sentiment is from Hero Arts and white lacy circle die is from Spellbinders.
I tend to use this layout for fast and easy cards. Patterned paper is by Echo Park.
Hope your week is going well! Have a great one!!!

Happy birthday flip-it card

Have you changed to the new blogger??? Oh my, I'm sort of having a hard time using it. I do love the new photo uploading part. It's so easy now.
Anyways, on to my card. This was the first paper that I cut using the new Sizzix circle flip-its but I didn't want to use it for my boy's day card in the post below. I had to make a birthday card for someone special and I wanted to use this Dandelion Designs stamp from the "have a great trip" stamp set.
Love this die! So easy to use and make a fast card. The reddish orange color was punched out using a Marvy circle punch that I bought from Ben Franklin Crafts awhile ago. The white circle is also a punch. Those punches come in handy when you need a circle.
Here's the flip side of the card. Sentiment is from Dandelion Designs "happy wishes" set.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!!

In the bag

That is the name of this Tim Holtz die for Sizzix. It's a perfect size for a small gift for someone special. I guess I've been a little lazy this week and forgot about posting this. Plus I've been preoccupied with my daughter since she had surgery this past Monday. I used Hello Kitty scraps from one of the make & takes I did awhile back for the front of the bag. Here's a side view of the bag. It actually has a crease going down the middle of the side but I think it looks better uncreased.
Come back again for the other project that I made last weekend.
Have a great weekend!!!

Happy Boy's Day card

I finally had the chance to sit down this evening to use this new Sizzix "flip-it" circle die by Stephanie Barnard and make a card with it. I used Dandelion Designs new Happy Boy's Day stamp set.
The scalloped circle is a framelits set from Sizzix.
The flower border is an EK Success border punch. I haven't touched this punch in awhile. Almost forgot that I had it.
Here's the flip side of the card.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great Easter!!!
