Cards!

Thank You for Caring Cards featuring LABEL ME PRETTY and SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE!

Card 139 (1)

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

Today I’m sharing a Thank You card that is simple, but beautiful—and it’s great for multiples! I used the LABEL ME PRETTY Stamp Set for the sentiment, and by using two different sheets of DSP from the SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack, I was able to use two different card base colors, but still keep things easy by using the same color mat and ink on each card!

The SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE DSP is a large pack of DSP (you get 24 sheets, 4 of each design—instead of the usual 12, 2 of each design), and four of the sheets have one pearlized side to add a “little extra” to all of your projects! (I didn’t use any of the pearlized sheets in today’s cards!)

Card 139 (2)

Before we get started, here is the list of DSP and Cardstock you’ll need:
(This list is to make one of each card!)

–Two pieces of Cardstock, measuring 8-1/2in x 5-1/2in, and then scored at 4-1/4in. (These are your card bases.) We need one in Petal Pink, and one in So Saffron.
–Two pieces of Old Olive, measuring 5-1/4in x 4in. (These are the mats for your cards.)
–Two pieces of DSP, measuring 5in x 3-3/4in.
–A scrap of Whisper White, large enough to stamp two sentiments, and punch them out using the 1-3/8in SCALLOP CIRCLE Punch (approximately 3-1/5in x 2in).
–A scrap of Petal Pink, approximately 2in square.
–A scrap of So Saffron, approximately 2in square.
(The 2in scraps are to mat the sentiments using a 1-1/2in CIRCLE Punch!)

Here is how to make the cards:

1. Gather all of the DSP and Cardstock you need to complete the two cards.

2. Using Old Olive, stamp two sentiments on the scrap of Whisper White Cardstock.

3. Using the 1-3/8in SCALLOP CIRCLE PUNCH, punch out both sentiments. Use the 1-1/2in CIRCLE PUNCH to punch out a circle from the Petal Pink scrap, and one from the So Saffron scrap.

4. Using SNAIL, layer the DSP onto the mats, and then layer the mats onto the card bases. Next, use SNAIL again to layer the sentiments onto the 1-1/2in Circles.

5. Use STAMPIN’ DIMENSIONALS to adhere the sentiments to the cards. (Check pic for placement!)

6. Use the PAPER-PIERCING TOOL–or the TAKE YOUR PICK TOOL–to adhere three BASIC RHINESTONE JEWELS to the card. I placed one on the sentiment above the “a” in “Thank,” and two on the DSP. (See pic for placement!)

And…you’re done!

Happy Stampin’! 🙂

Super Easy Holiday Treat Bags featuring PEACEFUL NOEL and DASHING ALONG!

Project 52

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

Today I’m sharing another project featuring those stars I was cutting out all last week, and not only is it *Super Easy*, but it’s *Super Cute* as well!! You can buy these STRIPED TREAT BAGS in my online store, and making the tag only takes minutes! In the end, you’ll have a beautiful, professional looking gift, that basically took no time at all to make!!

So….let’s get started!

First, here is what you’ll need as far as Cardstock and DSP:

–Three pieces of DASHING ALONG DSP, one each of the following measurements:
5in x 2in; 4-1/2in x 2in; and 4in x 1-1/2in.
–One star cut out of DASHING ALONG DSP (Note: I used the star from the TAKEOUT TREATS Framelits Dies to cut my star!)
–One piece of Whisper White Cardstock, measuring 2-1/2in x 2-1/2.

NOTE: The DASHING ALONG DSP (Designer Series Paper) is a FREE gift to customers who place a qualifying order of $250+ (before shipping/tax) in my Online Store before September 30! Once your qualifying order total reaches $250+, the DSP will be automatically added to your cart!

Okay…now we need to make our bag!

1. Cut out all the pieces of DSP and Cardstock you need to make your bag. Next, insert one end of each DSP piece into the TRIPLE BANNER PUNCH–this will give each piece of DSP that “Banner” look!

2. Using Cherry Cobbler Ink, stamp your sentiment on the Whisper White square. NOTE: Keep your stamped image close to the bottom edge of the cardstock, and center it as much as possible. The sentiment should be toward the bottom of the final square.

3. Use the third largest square from the STITCHED SHAPES Framelits to cut out your sentiment. (Remember: You want your sentiment toward the bottom of the square–please see the sample for reference!)

4. Use SNAIL to adhere the “Banners” together. With the longest banner on the left, and the second longest on the right, tilt both banners in so they overlap at their tops. (They will hang at an angle, and that’s what you want!) Use SNAIL to adhere them together, and then place the shorter/skinnier banner between the two large ones. Again, use SNAIL to adhere the small banner to the two longer ones. (See pic for reference!)

5. Attach the sentiment to the banner trio using SNAIL. (This is a stopping place until you fill your bag with goodies!)

6. Fill your bag with goodies, and fold over the top of the bag to make a little flap. Using a GOLD BINDER CLIP, attach the banner trio (with sentiment) to your bag. Finally, using a MINI GLUE DOT, adhere a small star to the empty space above the sentiment! (I made sure mine was leaned up against the gold binder clip! — See pic for placement!)

And you’re done! See…I told you it was *Super Easy*!!!

Everything you need to complete this project is listed in the supply list below–except for the DASHING ALONG DSP! Remember: You can only earn the DSP with a $250+ order (before shipping/tax) in my online store! (Everything else you can purchase now!)

Happy Stampin’! 🙂
