Envelope-Inspired and From My Heart

From My Heart Thank You Stampin Up2


Inspired by the lines of a classic envelope, I created this textured Thank You card.  After die cutting a piece of Parker’s Patterns DSP with the Label Collection Framelits, I trimmed it lengthwise and layered it on top of Marina Mist Cardstock.  Then I created the “envelope seal” with layered ovals and embellished with a fun new button from the Spring 2013 Catalog.  Inspiration is everywhere! :)

Sale-a-bration Stampin Up Razzleberry Oh Hello Pretty Petites Thanks 5






I’m in Rich Razzleberry Heaven! I am absolutely crazy about this new Designer Series Paper in the SAB Catalog called Sycamore Street DSP.  It is so vibrant, but offers some elegant tight patterns that are just great to work with.  Here, I featured the flower from the Oh Hello Clear Stamp Set and the greeting from the Pretty Petites Clear Stamp Set. Best of all, I found this CLEARANCE stamp set called Curvy Verses Wood for the inside greeting that is adorable and affordable.  Can’t beat that!

Patio Party Flip Card

Patio Party is the perfect whimsical complement to the Flip Card layout.  Paired with Baja Breeze and Primrose Petals, this Designer Series Paper is great for a cheery greeting.

I really like this whimsical layout and fold.  I have seen a Sizzix die for easily cutting out this type of card with the Big Shot, but the dimensions do not result in a standard size card.  With custom cutting on my new favorite tool (The Stampin’ Trimmer, of course!), I can customize the location and size of the centerpiece, as well as the overall size.  I love the new trimmer for exact cuts – I would never have attempted this project before.  Surprisingly, there are no overcuts or cross-hair cuts to be found in this card! What a feat!

PAPER: Patio Party Designer Series Paper, Baja Breeze Cardstock, Primrose Petals Cardstock, Night of Navy Cardstock.
