    Saying Goodbye Part 2, Plaid and Heartfelt

    Saying Goodbye Part 2 Here again Saying Goodbye part 2. Our first one has two ideas. This “thank you” card idea can be changed to any and yes ANY color combo. Plus with one run through the Stampin’ cut & Emboss you get two cards!! I love the texture that plaid creates. I need to share however that the stamp set is STAYING. It is just the die set Plaid Builder and Bundle price that is leaving. Also retiring on this card is the Braided Linen trim (already gone) and Small Bloom Punch. See, I used it a TON. I do mean a TON!! You will need the full size…

    Valentine card and Treat for my sweetie.

    Valentine card and Treat For today’s Valentine card and Treat for my sweetie. This was a Coffee and Cards item. The ladies were a lot of help.

I had planned on using that stamp already, but WOW!! Can you see the layered ribbon?? The White is from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon pack. The Real Red sheer ribbon which will be back in the Aug – Dec mini. The Heart Punch pack was really the way to complete this card. The…

    Day 4 of Valentines – Heartfelt – create your own DSP

    Fun idea today… Let’s make our own DSP (designer series paper). Here are the Ink colors…. Poppy Parade, Melon Mambo, Petal Pink and Crumb Cake. Using the Heartfelt stamp set (151417 B-153775) and the largest image first, general rule. Keep in mind that you have a sentiment layer to add over the “DSP”. We used only a 4 x 5 1/4 inch pieces, but you could make a whole sheet and then make up several cards. In other words spread some more love!! Now, you know I did not think about this, of course, until just now that Happy Valentines needs some Shimmer Spritzer on it, hummm!! ANYWAY, the layering…
