Take a look at my card:

Joy with clothespin

I just love how my card turned out.  I saw the fabulous Laura Bassen create a card like this and I knew I had to give it a try. I love the simplicity in the design.  So I gather all of my supplies and pulled this card off.

Creating this card was easy because everything was die cut!

I love how the pop of red from Lawn Fawn’s Joy die stand out on Papertrey Ink’s Journal Card 5 Die and matches the hint of red on the pattern paper.

I used Technique Tuesday’s Story Card Die to cut Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day patten paper.

I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins.

I tied Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine on the Stampin’ Up! clothespin.

Easy and no stamping.

So, what do you think?  Please let me know below.  I would love to hear from you.

Red Happy Birthday…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with DoubleClick Skittles Challenge!

This months theme is Birthday!  I’m happy about this because you can’t have enough birthday cards on hand.

I choose to use a couple of dies and embossing paste to create my card for today.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Birthday balloons

I saw a card created by Laura Bassen and I fell in love with the design.  I was so excited to see her use the new Simon Says Stamps Stitched Rectangles die set.  I order mines and it came just in time to create this card.

To create this card:

1. I started with a piece of Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut it to an A2 size card.

2. Then I used Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil and Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste to create the dots in the center of the cardstock.

3. I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock to add to the top of my card base.

4.  I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to cut out a window in the card panel.

5. I cut two balloons using Simon Says Stamp Balloons Craft Die to cut two balloons.  I add Stampin Up! Whisper White Barkers Twine.  I adhered the balloons with foam adhesive. I added foam adhesive to the back of the card panel and centered it onto the card base.

6. I stamped my sentiment using Simon Says Stamp More Sketchy Banner Greetings.  I cut the tail off and adhered the banner to the right side of the card.

7. I added Rudolph Red Skittle to the banner.  Then I added Clear Wink of Stella to my balloons.

Finished.  Very easy to recreate.

What do you think? Let me know.  Now its your turn to join us and play along with our challenge this month. I hope to see you there!!

I’m also entering Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes!

Thank you in Different Languages

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog.  I have more gift packaging ideas for you!!!

Who doesn’t love getting gifts in pretty packaging? I know I sure do. There are times when I get gifts and do not want to open them because the wrapping is so pretty. Isn’t that crazy. I know it is but what can I say. LOL!!

I facilitate a reading group for 21 of my coworkers at a big hospital in the city. This reading group is based on an honor system. The reading year starts January 1 and ends December 31. All of the participates chooses what their reading goal will be for the year and they try their best to met their goal by December 31. I do not pick any books except my own. Everyone chooses their own books. All they have to do is give me the name and author of the book. I enter the information onto a spreadsheet. That spreadsheet is update often and sent out once a month to all of the participants.

I have to say since the start of this group 3 years ago, my department has read over 1000 books. So to reward everyone for participating I usually do giveaways, give out special gifts to individuals who go beyond their goal and I also give gifts just because.

So, today I bring you three gift boxes that say thank you in different languages for three of my coworkers who really have met their goal before the end of the year.

Take a look at my first box:

Grazie

Take a look at my second box:

Merci box

Take a look at my third box:

Thank you box

There are many different ways to use these boxes:

1. You use them as place setting for each of your guest. Instead of thank you, put their name.

2. You could give them as thank you gifts for sharing Thanksgiving with you.

3. If you have children, you could make one for each of their teachers to say thank you before they go out on Thanksgiving break.

4. You could change the colors and make a bunch of these boxes for Christmas for teachers, students, coworkers, friend or family members.

The possibilities are endless and that’s because I used one of the Sweet Stamp Sets that is so versatile.

That set is:

Thank-You-

I love this set because it allows me to say thank you in different languages, so that I can personalize my gifts. You can also use it all year round, now that is a set I need on my desk all the time!

Now take a look at all of my boxes together:

Thanks in Different languages

Don’t you just love them!! Do you think my coworkers will love them too? I sure hope so!!

Check out Sweet Stamp Shop blog for details on how to create these boxes.

Let me know what you think!!

Thank you for stopping by!

Count Me In…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing along with Lawnscaping Challenge 94: Count Me In!!

94

This challenge asked us to use numbers somewhere on our project!  Boy was I excited to see this challenge.  I have so many Lawn Fawn numbers stamp and dies that I’ve haven’t used yet.  I was excited to pull them out.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve had so much fun creating tags and gift boxes.  So for this challenge I wanted to do the same.

I create two tags for this challenge.  The first one I created yesterday before I even knew about the challenge.  I wasn’t sure about this tag because I felt like something was missing in the top right hand corner.  So I put the tag down.  After seeing the challenge this morning I decided that I will add a number to the corner.

Happy Birthday tags

Take a closer look:

Happy Birthday tag 1

Look inside:

Tag 2 inside

What do you think about this tag?

For my second tag, I wanted to use my die cuts to cut out the number and use he negative space.  I really love how this tag turned out as well.
